Dec 7, 2015 - For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things

So I guess just to start our dear brother Afonso didn't feel certain about the Baptism and didn't feel 100% ready to be baptized. On Saturday night he told us he hadn't felt that "feeling" he needed.We tried our best to testify and tell him that we know hes ready. He explained that he doesn't have that 100% certainty that this is the only true church. We tried our best to explain to him that that is what Faith is! He already has that desire to believe. That mustard seed is all he needs! But unfortunately God gave him his agency(; But don't worry! We obviously wont give up on him! One day he'll be wearing that white.

Other than that we had a sweet Zone Meeting about how we can be better and bolder at testifying and challenging while we teach. We came up with some really good ideas to truly use our calling as representatives of Christ to be like Apostles and Prophets of old and Be Bold! Be Fearless! Testify! Really pumped me up!

We did a lot of service this week and helped a member move and another member at her store and we got 3 meals out of it! Haha that's not the reason why I wanted to serve but it was a nice perk! But service is one of the best things we can do as members of the church.  It felt so good to really help someone who needed us. "Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words." Especially during this Christmas season giving of ourselves is the best way to show that we really do love our neighbor and love our Father In Heaven. "...When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God."  So everyday try to find an opportunity to serve! Love you guys! Have an awesome week!
