"O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh ... Yea, I know that God will give liberally to him that asketh, ... therefore I will lift up my voice to thee ... my rock and mine everlasting God. Amen." (2 Nephi 4: 34-35)

Hey Everybody!!

Unfortunately this week was a little bit rough. So with the new transfer it seems like the work here in the ward has restarted as well. Elder Cruz and I are working hard with the members and by our own forces to find and teach as many people possible. We were able to find a few people who were very interested and wanted to get to know about the church and its teaching better. But to make a long story short, both of these people, after several great lessons, decided that the church isn´t what they wanted in their lives, and they would rather continue in the direction the are already going.

This was something that made me really sad, but we all have our own agency to choose what we want in our lives. I just hope that at some point in the future they will remember the spirit that they felt with us and have the desire learn more about the church again.

Other than that though the week was good. Elder Cruz and I are working a lot more with the members and are really starting to enjoy the work while still being efficient in what we do. Oh, and a member of the ward did a barbaque for us and it was super, super good! Here in brazil they call it churrasco.

Sorry for the short email, it seems like the time is always a little limited.

Love you all and hope you all have a great week!
