Bom dia meus queridos!
Another family (one of the less actives) that went to church was Eric, Silvia, their two daughters and one of their daughter´s friends who isn´t a member. Our Elder´s Quorum President called us up and said he´d marked a visit with them for Monday night. So we went with him and invited them back to church. It was a really simple visit and a really simple invitation, but we promised lots of blessings. Silvia´s been praying for a better job since their financial situation´s pretty rough and that´s been on her mind a lot. She came to the conclusion she needed to go to church in order to qualify to receive that blessing. When the whole family came to church I went over to greet and congratulate her and she, all smiles, came up to me and told me that Tuesday night after our visit she got a job offer and is working already. Miracle! That made me super happy. Eric made me happy too...he works Saturday nights as a taxi driver and gets back at 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning. And yet he was still there for sacrament meeting. Some people amaze me here.
Unfortunately we haven´t been able to get ahold of Jeffrey this week. We passed by three times, including with the young men´s presidency, but he wasn´t there. We´ll continue to stop by and I´m really hoping something good comes of it.
Oh, other exciting news! Devenilson, another one of our investigators at church this Sunday, decided he´s going to get married! We brought a recently married and baptized couple with us to visit him and his wife during the week and they helped him so much to make that decision. He said he´s going to need us to help him pop the question. So hopefully I´ll have a really cool story to tell next Monday. Love you all! Abraço para todos!
Oh, really quick...Mom, Gabriela said she´d sent a friend request on Facebook...do you think you could go on there for me and accept it (question mark..this keyboard doesn´t have one :( ) Thank you!!! (hug...this keyboard doesn´t have one of those either). Love you :)
