Yooo what is yall??
First off congrats to Cait and Bret! I cannot wait to find out if you'll be having a boy or a girl next week!
This week was yet another great one for Elder Souza and Elder Xibaba (my street name) haha. We had the chance to be a part of some fun activities; a family night with the Sisters and Laurinda's family, celebrating Shanaya's bday with her and her family, and an Elder's Quorum activity on Saturday. So, all the activities and what not were popping as always!
Pedro and Benjamin are all set for this weekend for their baptisms and they are super excited for it. Henriques and the gang all came to church on Sunday and it was super fun to see them there and also them come to some of the activities that went down. Carlos and Elsa have gotten the consent from both sides of the family and so it’s a big ol' green light for their wedding and baptism that will be happening in September!
Elder Souza was a little sick on Thursday so we spent the day at the apartment. Thanks to many Elder Holland and John Bytheway talks I was able to make it through without thinking about home that much haha. Elder Souza is feeling all better now.
I would like to share with you all a scripture that ever since I read it this week, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Jacob 5:41,
"41 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard wept, and said unto the servant: What could I have done more for my vineyard?
After reading this scripture small scripture, together with the context of the chapter, I was able to feel the love the Heavenly Father has for each and every single one of us. He will do everything, He will dig and water and weed, trim, prune, transplant, and graft so that we might be happy. And I know that true happiness only comes through following the example of His Perfect Son, Jesus Christ. And I also love this quote from President Monson, "“God’s love is there for you whether or not you feel you deserve love. It is simply always there.”
Love you all,
Have a great week!
