July 18th, 2016 - O Amor do Salvador (I Feel My Savior"s Love).

My dear family,

This week was incredible. I have felt the love of our Savior at every moment. My heart is full of gratitude and love for Jesus Christ and for the experiences I have had on my mission.

For the past few weeks I haven't had many words to say, but it's because I don't have the words to express my love for our Savior. The lyrics of a Primary song have been stuck in my head for the past few weeks, the lyrics of I feel my Saviors love...
 O amor do Salvador. Eu sinto em toda parte. E sinto seu calor. A onde quer que eu vá. O amor do Salvador. Em paz me envolve a alma. E minhas orações Eu seu que ouvirá. O amor do Salvador. È minha maior benção. Ele é meu bom pastor. Nada me faltará. O amor do Salvador. Eu quero ir repartindo servindo sou feliz. Recebe mais quem dá. Ele save que o seguirei, a vida lhe darei. Pois amo o Salvador. E sei que ele me ama.

I love our Savior. I know that he atoned for my sins. He is perfect. He lives. I know that Joseph Smith saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. President Thomas S. Monson has all the keys of the Priesthood and is the prophet today. This is the only church directed by Christ. This is His church. The Book of Mormon is true. It testifies of Christ in the most beautiful way. I know that we need to be exactly obedient to have happiness. This life is a test to prepare us to return and live with God once again. I know that miracles happen. I love my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ, ele é lindo! 

Thank you for all your love and support. I love you all. 
Com amor,

July 11, 2016 - Today My Heart is Full of Gratitude!

Family!

Today I don’t have many words to express how I feel, I'm just so grateful for my life and for where I am. This week was an amazing week! I felt so loved by your letters and by the people here who took good care of me on my special day.

The week started off well at our mission conference with President Leite. The moment I saw him, I knew that I picked him to be my mission President for this short time. He and Sister Leite are inspired people. He talked a lot about 2 Nephi 32:3 and also about how everyday we need to ask God if we did our best during the day and if he accepts our offering. I learned so much at this conference.
Sister Nicoli 

My Birthday was amazing! My day started off with exchanges with Sister Nicoli (the sister I trained in Iguatu). I loved spending the day working with her and seeing the progress she has made since the time I had trained her. She is such a wonderful mission. I was so happy! The next day (my birthday), I received a lot of cake! Haha. It started off at our District meeting where my district surprised me with an Orange Cake. We then worked very hard during the day and at night we went to our meeting with our ward mission leader. When we arrived at his house it was dark. I walked in and some people that I absolutely love from this ward were there singing happy birthday! We ate cake and salgados. I'm so grateful! I will never forget my 21st birthday.

The week ended very well with the baptism of Taiane. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to be an instrument in the hands of God to help Taiane come closer to his Savior.

I have a heart full of gratitude this week. I love you all. Thank you for everything.

Love,

July 4th 2016 - Feliz 4th of July!

Familia!!!!!

FELIZ 4th of JULY!!!!! I love this day! Sister Andrews and I celebrated this day with an all you can eat churrasco at Sal e BrasaJ.

This past week was wonderful. I have never been so happy in my life. Serving with Sister Andrews has been amazing! We work so well together and we have so much fun. We also had the miracle of the baptism of Wesley, a nephew of a member.

I'm learning new things every day and I'm experiencing many things. Yesterday was such an exciting day. There is a part of our ward that is very long and so yesterday we had the first church meeting in Sabiaguaba to start a group there. I'm so grateful that I got to be a part of it. There were about 31 visitors for the first church meeting ever in this city!

Thank you for the birthday cards! I'm excited to be 21 years old! We will be having a party here in Alvorada.. a working party! Woo!

I love being a missionary. I love Jesus Christ, our Savior. I love serving him. I am so grateful to be here. Have a wonderful week!!!

Love,
Sister Unbedacht
