A few weeks ago I talked to a Spanish Woman in a car waiting for her daughter. She arrived late so we talked to Matilde for an hour and she asked all about us and what we do. Tuesday we passed São Mateus where they live and taught her family the Restoration. We finished the First Vision and she said, wow you bring a message of Peace. We then read Galatansand explained that that was the spirit telling her that this was the truth. The lesson was super fun and spiritual and the house was super nice haha but latter in the week we received a respectful message that they are not interested in changing religions. It was sad to hear but we have to respect the agency of the people. We gave them a Book of Mormon and at least we planted a good seed for the future.
We have been asking the question "What is the most important thing for you in your life?" Most of the time it is family, but it makes it so much easer to talk to people and make an easy transition to the gospel. Doing this people have become more nice.
A member this week said, "Elders, how is it that you always have the perfect scripture for me?" Feels good to help people through reading The Book of Mormon.
André came to church, he is 16 years old and was in our class where we taught about gaining and strengthening our testimonies through Scripture Study and Prayer. It went great.
President and Sister Tavares and the Assistants are her in Terceira Island for a super small Zone Conference and will pass P-day with us. The Fiestas here are crazy there have been concerts every night until real late behind our house, luckily I can still fall asleep easily and fire crackers go off all day everyday. Yesterday a big marching band marched down the road close to the church. Fun Stuff. I love the Azores!
(no letters this week...maybe next week!)
