Libbi: Noticias de Campo Grande

    Oh this week....where do I start....Sorry I don´t have a list of birthdays this week but if you had a birthday HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I WISH YOU WELL!! Alright, this week was another week in the service of my God. It had highs and lows like everyday. I´m on a constant roller coaster. Yesterday we had ward conference for the ward here and I was able to play my violin. It was really wonderful and the spirit was really strong. We also marked a baptism for and investigator we have named Oswaldo. I´m hoping things will work out with him. He has a very humble situation. He does not know how to read or write and he can only count to 15. I am hopeful that all things will work out with him because he also has a broken foot and needs to be driven to church every week. But we are blessed. Probably the funniest moment of the week was after I offered a prayer at the end of a lesson and the name of the woman was Charity (caridade) but I called her Chastity (castidade) IN THE PRAYER...I don´t think she noticed or understood my Portuguese but my companion commented after we left and helped me to understand the difference! Good times! We taught many people this week and only 1 came to church! AHHH!!! At times this work is very frustrating. We also taught a family that believed in re-encarnation (i don´t know how to spell) good times trying to explain the difference between what they believe and resurrecao. (Resurrection) Today it is cool and rainy but the rest of the week was very hot with wind. We just keep trying to establish ourselves in this area and I have faith that the Lord will bless our effort.
This church is true and so is this gospel. It is so wonderful the hope and joy that comes from this knowledge in our lives. I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve and teach and learn and grow....I am learning so much and have so very much to learn. Hope everyone is safe and well. I love you and think of you often. God be with you till we meet again!
Com Amor,
Sister Libbi Sorensen
