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

Best Easter of Andy's Life!

Ola todo mundo!

Gosh...i dont even know where to begin...I just had the craziest emotional rollercoaster ride week and
i am literally left speachless here. Let me begin to say that Yes, Papa my last Easter in the Mission was the best Easter of my life...Elder G. Oliviera and I... and I should say the Bishop and Diogennys an awesome member, we baptized a family of four this past Sunday as well a a young 18 year old girl named Karina...I cant describe the feeling of joy and gratitude to the Lord for allowing this to happen and allowing me to esperience this in my life and just to get to know this family and Karina. I was begining to think that i would not be the Elder to see this Family be baptized as they were all in doubt and uunsurety of entering the church and being prapared for a big change...We said everything that we could and taught everything that we could to let this family know that with a leap of faith everything would be alright but something was missing
for them that we just couldnt discern...We found out this past wednesday that they were all waiting for a real specific answer...especially ALexandre the father...We prayed and fasted a ton for this family and i know that we were not the only ones...Saturday we went to give them a quck visit to see how they were doing...they all received the answer they were looking for, an exact specific answer...Let me just say that their anwsers to thier prayers in thier dreams is one of the most spiritiual stories i have to share and i only feel comfortable sharing thier answers personally...When they told us i was tears, and Elder G. Oliveira speechless...This baptism was one of the most attended of the ward with four peopling baptizing and the photo of white we took is undescribable...unfortuanatly i do not have my camera with me so until next week...SORRY :( ANyways i was transfered to Zona Natal this morning to a little city call Canguaretama. It way different then any town that i have worked in so far...My new companion is named ELder Cicero and we are super excited to work! MOre next week! love you guys!
Elder m. Howell
