The members help so much in the work!

Hey everyone! Man this week flew by! I hope you all had an awesome Easter and that you all were able to keep in mind the real meaning of why we celebrate it. I hope you were all able to ponder a little on the life, death, and resurrection and what it means to all of us.

So this week was really good. We've been working with R. and her family a bunch this week. Her parents are finally starting to warm up to us but they are still really Catholic so they don't agree with the baptism. It makes me so frustrated because there is a Catholic church on their block and they don't even go to church, they just say they're Catholics. Anyways, R. and her brother T. came to church with us this Sunday and loved it. The Bom Jardim ward is one of the best wards I've passed in on my mission. The members help so much in the work with referrals and fellowshipping investigators and all that good stuff. R.'s older sister Re. didn't go to church with us because her daughter was sick so she had to stay home. But it will all work out.

On Thursday we had a zone conference in Caicó which was really good. It was fun to see everyone there. Then on Friday the ward had a big activity out at a little farm house and they invited us to go so we went. They had a pool there and a little grass area where everyone played soccer. Then we had a barbeque after which was bomb. A member gave passed a referral so we went there that night to teach him. His name is F. and we had a really good lesson on the restoration with him. We also taught one of his neighbors, M., with him. After then lesson something interesting happened. She came up to me and said that she had had a dream a few nights before and in that dream a bunch of tall men wearing white shirts and ties were having a conversation with here but she couldn't understand anything that they were saying. She said as soon as she saw me she had the distinct impression that I was there in her dream. This was before she had even met me. To be honest I was a little shocked. I told her that we had for sure been sent to her because she needed what we were teaching and she said she would have her son read the Book of Mormon to her because she doesn't know how to read. We're gonna keep working with both F. and M.

But that's about it for this week. I love you all! Thank you for everything! Happy Easter! A igreja é verdadeira!
