Queridos Irmãos e Irmãs,
This week was unforgettable.
This past week we received a new Elder from Paraguay. He name is Elder Mayeregger.
He is super cool. I like him. We also recieved 4 Sisters into our District. I went there to their city and helped Elder Mayeregger perform some baptisms. I will send some photos. It was so beautiful. The city of the sisters is called. quixadá . It is surrounded by Mountains. So pretty.They have a mountain there that is in the shape of a Chicken. Its famous in brazil.
We also had a conference of 500 missionaries in Fortaleza yesterday. It was amazing. 2 Missions. Fortaleza Leste and Mission Fortaleza. It was great to see friends but it was even greater to hear from an apostle of Jesus Christ, Elder Anderson. He spoke in Portuguese about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He spoke that people who are being converted to the Gospel cannot stay firm in the church without an understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I loved it and i took many notes.
His wife spoke in English with a Translator at her side. It was interesting to hear two versions of the same talk. I loved it.
It was a wonderful spiritual experience.
We are teaching about 5 families. Hopefully we have a baptism this next week. :) I will show the photos of Quixadá.
Love, Elder Riches
