Andy's Mission Scripture

Andy's Mission Scripture:

"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

~Alma 29:9

Transfers...Andy Senior Comp in Campina Grande!

Puxa Vida!

Flip! My whole world has been turned upside down, well my whole missionary world that is! From this day forth my mission will be completely different becuase...I was transfered to Campina Grande, Jardim Paulistano! As a Senior! On top of that I was called Treinador! I´m a Father! haha Dont worry not literally! that would be crazy! My ``son`` is Elder G. Oliviera! He is from Minas Gerais! He is a Brasileiro if you didnt notice from his name! Im really grateful that I have a brazilian child just in case i dont understand something exactly right and can continue to help me with my pronunciation! Whats awesome is that i will be living in a house full of Brazilians again! but unlike the first time i will understand what they say! haha This is going to be an adventure! ahhh I have the responsibility to lead all the discussions and train this greenie all he needs to know in 12 weeks so that by the end he will be able to train right off the bat! I am nervous im not going to lie! Im nervous that i will not be able to handle this role, but that is where my faith comes in. I have never felt so unprepared so I was called of this must be the right time for me but i sit here writing this email with so much anxiety on what is to come and how i am responsible for everything involved for the progress of this ward here...I sat sleepless looking at the ceiling in the Moroni house (the house right next to the presidents house) thinking Im just a 20 year old guy with 8 months in a country that ive never been to speaking a language ive never studied before i came, but now this country is starting to feel like home...Everyday its becoming more familiar to me...Im petrified, that this all happened so fast but i trust in the Lord with all my heart that everything will be all right if i give it my all! I know that prayer is such a simple thing and overlooked severly by many but the confort i felt last night was unbelieveable...I love you guys! I pray for you! Plz pray for me and my companion here as we are reopening an area!!! Love, Elder m. Howell
