Banana trees and other great things

We received this email on April 10.

Strange how fast time flies. I feel like I blinked and suddenly I was a year and 8 months into my mission. Every day is a new adventure. 

This week we mainly focused on finding new people to teach, which is always a challenge. We invited all of the members at lunch to think of people that we can teach, and we even went to the seminary class one night (yes, night- not to be confused with 5:45 AM) to challenge the students to invite friends to come to church. We´ll see where that goes. 

I´ve been thinking a lot lately about the General Conference that we had two weeks ago. Tons of inspired speakers. President Monson talked about the importance of having charity, which is Christ-like love for others. Love is one of the main attributes of God, and to really come to know who God is we must love as he loves. The best way to know who God is is by living as He and and his Son do. That´s a challenge but through the power of the atonement it´s possible!

Boa semana para todos! Amo vocês!
