May 2011-May 2013

Kevin has been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has been assigned to labor in the Brazil Londrina Mission for two years and will be teaching the gospel in the Portuguese language. Kevin will not be using the internet while serving as a missionary. This site will be updated by me, his mom, as I recieve his weekly email letters and pictures. Enjoy!

Finding the Elect that God has put in your Path

this week we had a Miracle!!!


on Tuesday i was doing a split with an elder in another area, and during companion study he got a call from a guy that was wondering where the chapel is located. he expressed his desire to go to church here because he had moved recently from another state where he was going every week. 

we discovered that he is living now in the area where i´m serving with elder P, so we called him later to find out more details. turned out that he has been going to church for 4 years but couldn´t be baptized because he was living with his girlfriend and was not married.

he split up with her and moved here and wanted to fufill he dream of being baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ!!!!!

we didnt even have to teach  him anything! he already knew everything! was baptized on saturday and confirmed on sunday

it really goes to show how all that we do as missionaries really isn't about how smart or how well we have memorized the scriptures, its all about finding the Elect that God has put in your path. in 4 months i worked really hard with Elder S, but didnt baptize anyone. and in this last week God just sends someone out of nowhere. thats why you cant really measure your success by how many Baptisms you have, but by how much you feel the Spirit in your day-to-day proselyting and how much you try.

I love you all! we have a a couple that is progressing but is a little scared of the baptismal commitment. pray for them.
