Miracles

Elder Olivier had an amazing week!  We were so happy to hear about this baptism!!!  Miracles do happen.  Here is his email:


Wow. Busy week. 

This week we went to Manaus (again, for the 1,000,000th time!) to go on exchanges with the assistants. It was good, but my companion got sick again. The only difference is that this time he passed his sickness to me too! haha. But now we´re 100% again. We stayed in Manaus just for a day, then we came back. The only flights are in the middle of the night, so we got 0 sleep. Got some sweet night-time aerial view pics of Manaus though. 

So this week was finally the week we have been waiting soooo long for. When I got here in the area about 4 months ago, we went to the bishop´s house to see if he knew anyone we could teach. We talked to the bishop´s wife. She said that at that moment she didn´t have anyone in mind, so we asked her if she knew anyone that was less-active that we could visit. She said we could visit her nieces, who lived next door with her parents. 

"And are your parents members?"

"No. But it´s not worth it to try and teach them. Lots of elders have already tried. They´ll never accept." 

Long story short, Saturday was their baptism. 

At the baptism, the bishop´s wife gave the opening prayer. She spent like 10 minutes trying to talk, but she couldn´t hold back tears. Lots of ward and family members got really emotional. Everything happens in the Lord´s time. 

Miracles happen. I know that God lives, and that Jesus Christ is our Savior. 


Have an awesome week!


Love,

√Člder Olivier!
