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

Great week...great pics!

Oi!!! meus queridos!

This week was splendid! Yesterday really just put the cherry on top! and why you might ask??? because yesterday was sunday which is my favorite day of the week and becuase of two things that happened at church yesterday!  First Lucas came to church all dressed up in a white shirt and tie and i didnt recongnize him at first. It was so great and funny to see him all dressed up. Sadly i didnt have my camera with me so ill take a picture with him next week! Secondly was the baptism of  our buddy Cristóvão!!! His baptism was really nice because he said it has been sometime that he has been needing guidance or ``Equilibrium`` as he would say in his life and im so glad to have experienced the moment of a ``new beginning`` for him. His story is interesting as he was born here in Patos but grew up mostly in Rio de Janeiro then moved back here when his parents seperated. His mom is a member there in Rio and he has had a lot of contact with the church but never arrived to point of seriously thinking about being baptized. The time was right for him when we first met him one afternoon looking for another address from a man we ended up never finding. It was a really nice baptismal meeting and was especially sweet for Elder Villela being it his first baptism in the mission! I know that this Church is true and that it provides true happiness in this life. I love you all and have a great week! Elder ANdy M. Howell
