Also this week we went to the temple, and I think it was the best experience that I have had yet in the temple. It was absolutly amazing.
First to respond to your questions mom, we had to wake up a 4:30am to get there early for the 9am session. It didn´t help that it was 2 degrees C this morning. We only did 1 endowment. We went there and after ate lunch then went to the bookstore to buy things that we needed. It was in Portuguese because everyone speaks (or should learn to speak) Portuguese. Although if you wanted you could use headphones for the translation. Also I saw sister Miller from my district in the ctm at the temple. So Elder Sousa likes to joke a lot, but we have already had some really good moments so I like him a lot. I haven´t been cooking that much because I haven´t had time, but I will soon.
When I went in the temple before the session I felt really good, and I just focused on the feeling I was feeling, and I felt amazing.So This past week I have been a little discouraged because everyone in my house has a lot more time on the mission, and so I have been thinking more about the fact that I still have a lot of time left on the mission, and so I have been a little discouraged. So after the session in the temple I was just thinking, and praying, and I just felt Heavenly Father´s love for me. There was a Book of Mormon next to me, and I felt like I should read a bit. So I flipped to Alma 39 and started reading at vs 13. It was exactly what I needed to feel. I felt so much better about the mission, and about life. I am excited to really strive to be a better servant of the Lord, and really help his children come unto him. I love the Lord, and all the he has done for me, and the opportunity that I have to raise my voice and proclaim the gospel of Christ.
Thank you all for your support.
