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!

Miracles like Skittles

This week was crazy, but good. We went to various small cities where missionaries never went before, one old man was baptized in the sister´s area (president doesn’t let the sisters travel to other cities) that we taught. He had already gone to church several times, we just had to teach him the lessons and challenge him to be baptized.

Also, in another city, there is a family of a missionary that is serving in northern Brazil. The family wants to get baptized, but they don’t have any way to get to church on Sunday. It’s a poor little city, and the bus is expensive. It’s also like an hour away from Apucarana (where I am, the closest city that has the church). I’ll just have to ask the district president to try to rent a van or get some member to bring these people church

But also we had 3 BAPTISMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The girl that me and Elder Hoskin baptized brought three of her friends to church last week, so we taught them all the week and two of them got baptized on Saturday after watching conference!!!

Also, there is a young man that came to church with his uncle, his sister and brother are baptized already, so we taught him everything and he was baptized on Sunday! (He originally was gonna get baptized last week but his mom wouldn´t be able to watch so he wanted to wait till this week)

God is pouring out the miracles; the hard part is working hard enough to try to catch them all!! It makes me remember an old skittles commercial that it starts to rain skittles and everybody is trying to run around and catch them in their hands. It’s kind of like that. I’m tired but happy.

I love you all!
