4 meses de missão!

Oi a todos!

Can you believe its already been four months? Wow! And as of today its already my third transfer in the field, so I am done training! I said goodbye to my wonderful companion Sister F. Santos today, she is going home to Curitiba after a great mission! Awww! Its bittersweet, but Im excited to meet my new companion and see what all happens with this transfer. I'll write about it next week :)

This week was kinda crazy but we had many little miracles and a GIANT miracle! One of our investigators, R, smokes cigarettes and we challenged him a while ago to keep the word of wisdom and quit smoking. This past tuesday we made a plano de conversão (conversion plan) with him and he and his family made some great goals to help him quit, and we also listen things that Heavenly Father could do to help him, including making him feel nausea when he went to smoke so he would want to quit. Well we stopped by on friday and guess what??? R said that when he had gone to smoke his one cigarette of the day, he didn't because he felt sudden nausea at the thought of smoking! He said yesterday that he's officially quit, and he's the kind of person that when he says that he means it! WHAT A MIRACLE! Another awesome part to this story is that he made the goal to read the Doctrine and Covenants and the Book of Mormon more often to help him keep his mind away from smoking, and hes gaining a greater testimony of the scriptures!! :D Seriously, my testimony was strengthened so much by this. I know that Heavenly Father works miracles in our lives and that He ALWAYS does His part when we do our part.

Anyway, life is good here in Teresina. Im learning lots and loving so so much being a missionary and sharing this wonderful message! Have an amazing week! <3

Muito amor,
Sister Knapp
