Mais um P-day

We received this email from Elder Olivier on September 19, 2016...

Hi everybody!!

This week was an awesome week like always! It was super hectic but that´s normal! 

So big news!!!! This week we finally bought gas for our stove, so we can finally cook food!!!! Heck yes!!! So this week I actually made cookies again to bring to the baptism. They turned out good, even though they always turn out way different here in brazil because everything is different here! 

This week we went on companion exchanges for the whole week. That is always a really good experience. The assistents of the mission president sent everyone in the mission a talk called "Como Ser um Missionário Batizador" (How to be a Baptizing Missionary) by M. Russell Ballard. It talks a lot about how lots of missionaries complain about their companions, their area, the members of the ward, etc but how successful missionaries are the missionaries that can obtain results in any circumstances. We should be creators of circumstances and not creatures of circumstances. I know now more than ever that work can solve any problem. I´ve noticed that when I pass through hard times here, it is almost always because I need to work more and work better. There is always something to improve.

I love you all! Until next week!
