"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)

December 7, 2015

Here is what has been going on this week with some of the people we have been working with.

Cristiane and the fam!

Unfortunately the struggle with Cristiane and her family is still going on. This Sunday was the Sunday that they would have been officially confirmed members of the church but they were not able to make it to church this Sunday. Saturday night Cristiane started to feel really sick and went to the hospital. (she has quite a few health issues that seem to be constantly affecting her) After going to the hospital she went to her mothers house to get help taking care of her kids, because she is a single mom there is no one else to help her at home. She ended up staying the night at her mom´s house and still felt really sick Sunday. It was pretty unfortunate that she wasn´t able to make it to church Sunday but we are going to go back to her house today to help her and share a good message with them.

Odair and Lediane

Lediane came home from the hospital this Sunday after trying to take her own life. Tuesday we visited her and her family and it seemed as if everything was just fine. and it seems like every time that we are there with them that everything is just fine and dandy, but then the next time we return a million things have gone wrong. We will try to keep helping them this week as much as they was to be helped.


This is a new investigator that we found this week. She is 22 years old and has 2 kids, one that is 6 years old and another that is 1 year old. We actually found her because she stopped us as we were walking in the street. She was interested to know what it is that we do and showed even more interest in getting to know the church. She has a lot of respect for what we do and thought that the message of the restoration was very interesting. I´m excited to see how she continues to progress!

We meet with lots of other people this week but it would take hours to write about all of them. But the work is progressing well and we have a lot to do this transfer. Oh I forgot to mention, Sunday was transfers. I will be staying in the universitário ward with Elder Cruz! I am certain that this transfer will be another great one.

Oh and this Sunday i participated in a play that our stake put on to kick off the Christmas season. Myself and all the elders of my zone were angels in the play ``Salvador do Mundo``. It was a really cool experience! I´ll attack some pics for you guys

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

Love, Elder Rice
