Post Mother's Day Skype and Stuff!

i am so happy i got to see your faces yesterday <3 i love your faces more on Skype than in photos and i love them more in person!! hahah this week, just like Kenzie, we will work, i have conference this week so that should be fun, and we are planning on designing a t-shirt for our zone!!

i am excited to see what happens this week and to see all the miracles happen! our week was good very long waiting for Skype. but we have been able to hit all of our goals these last 2 weeks and its great.. i know that everything happens for a reason.. i am so grateful for this chance i have to be here in Brazil. i know without a doubt that i am becoming the person Heavenly Father needs of me..

well you got to meet all of the sisters i live with and its always crazy in the house, with jokes and games.. i am so happy to be with them all. Sister Sage is awesome and glad I'm living with her again, Sister Freire is awesome and so fun to be with all the time! and Sister Hogge is absolutely awesome and she´s so funny, i will live with her at BYU-Idaho when she finishes her mission!! she's the best and we get along great!  

For p-day, we will be playing clue today hahah we got permission this week to play it!! and that's about it we had other plans to go to the parque de peão which is the rodeo stadium here but our plans got cancelled.

Another Great Week!

Hey this week was a great one - we had 5 people in church with us and it's great to see them committing to grow closer to our Heavenly Father.. we have a couple that we are teaching for the last 2 months and they always just kept saying they didn't want to be baptized right now and it's been a bit frustrating.. 
 
This week we started our fast and of course we were fasting for this couple.. we had an appt. with them Saturday night and when we got there, they told us that they want to be baptized now but we still have to wait for them to be married but they FINALLY have a desire to be baptized!!!! it was great. i know without a doubt that fasting is a way we can show our love and a small sacrifice for what we want or need!!!
i am loving my mission and everything that I've learned...
i how everyone has a great week and i love you all so much <3

Love,
Sister Moss

Great Week!

This week was great. i am so HAPPY that i was able to watch the baptism of Kilik and Eva.. they looked to beautiful/handsome in white and they are so happy and i love that..

also this week was a good one we have been able to find a lot of good people to start teaching.. its moving very slow here in Barretos but thats all good.. life is good and moving forward.. with transfers i am staying in Barretos, i will be finishing the training of Sister Freire and Sister Sage will be living with me again... i am SUPER upset one of my best friends here was transferred and i may or may not have cried... she (Sister Mevs) is one of my sisters forever now.. and its so sad that she doesn't live with me anymore.. i know that i will see her again but its still not the same! 

things are going really well for me, i am learning a lot and i know that the Savior is proud of my work here.. sometimes its hard to feel like i am doing good things when i see the people i am helping fall away after a short time or just when people are not accepting but i know without a doubt that Heavenly Father is truly proud of the person i am becoming and of the work I've done here and the work i will continue to do.. i am so grateful for my mission up until now i and i know that this is my time to truly become the women Our Heavenly Father needs me to be!! 

i love you all so much and i hope you all have a great week 
    
Com Todo Meu Coração Te Amo Muito 💚

Not Much to Say!

My week was a good one, i had splits with the SLT and it was a great day we laughed all day! was a good to laugh!! the week itself was good. we hit our goals and its been great i had a few problems with a RC and now the situation got a little to serious and now we aren't going back to her house.. actually she cut all communications with us and doesn't want to go to church anymore. its very sad and it doesn't help my companion feel great, it's her first baptism and 2 weeks afterwards she already doesn't want to come anymore.. 

but enough about the sad - i truly am learning a lot about myself and becoming a better person... i need new shoes so i might buy some this week, and when is the project of drina? the member in my ward will be going to the states in may 

i love you all so much and i cant wait to hear from you all next week <3

So Much Stress

don't have much to say this week but i love you all so much and that i am grateful for the love i can feel from home!!! 

this week was a very stressful week the Lord is truly testing my patience... but its okay i have not screamed or lost control.. had a few things happen with one of our RC and its been a little crazy these last few days but we are praying and fasting and trying all we can do to help her, its been a true test of my faith this last week.. 

I know that its all for my benefit and i am learning and growing so much from this experience... i hope sister freire doesn't give up because its hard... i am working as hard as i can to be showing her how to get past the hard times.

this week in church i gave a talk and i think it went well i will add photos of the papers!!!

sorry this week was a short letter the week was really hard but i know this next week will be better!! <3

i love you all so much 

Love

Baptism

I am so happy everything is going well at home and time is moving way to fast..

this week was a slow one for me but that okay, the work is moving very slowly and people wont accept us but i know everything will be alright.. we had a baptism this week, her name is Kelli and she is awesome and i have loved seeing the her make the right changes in her life to follow our Savior. it's the same things i can see that make me love the mission even more...

i am glad, that everyone at home is doing well.. i have heard some sad news about 2 of the other people i have taught and were baptized, they have stopped going to church and one has started to smoke again.. it broke my heart to hear this because i know that right now there is nothing i can do to help them.. i pray everyday that they realize they have slipped away and that they will remember the feelings they had at church and will go back..

i am loving Barretos and i know one day when i leave here. it will be so hard. i think right now it's my favorite area and ward.. the members are awesome and they are so kind and willing to help us.. 

i love you all and i miss you all so much! have a great week and know that i am always praying for you!! 

Love

I Love General Conference

I loved conference this week i cant wait to read the talks again in English to be able to fully understand what was said but i know that every word was said with the power of god and that every single person that spoke truly is a disciple of Christ in these days.. i am so happy for the new temples and that the church is growing every day... this week was great but very stressful, i have some very good news that i received this week i get to stay in Brazil.... i went and got my visa renewed and i can stay in Brazil... hahah i lost 2 days of work because i went to a different city outside the mission to get it done, but all is well.
 
i am so grateful for the time i have had this Easter season to learn so much more about our Savior Jesus Christ and the chance i have to help others get to know him as well.. 
 
um other good news is that this week we are preparing for a baptism... her name is Kelli and she is awesome. she watched all four sessions on conference with us and she loved every minute and has so many questions about everything!! 
 
training is a lot of stress. i am having a hard time with my comp because she has anxiety and doesn't want and doesn't like to do the little things, like knocking on doors or talking to the people in the street.. so its a bit harder doing everything alone.. i am praying for her everyday to overcome her fears... i just hope i am helping her in anyway.. <Mom note: We talked to Sister Moss about this and reminded her that she had a difficult time in the beginning too. She agreed and this reminder was very helpful to her!>

one thing I've learned about other people is that i cant control them. even if i want to, they can make their own choices and what they do, i cant be held accountable for. if its wrong, i know at least i tried to help... 
 
one thing I've learned about me is that i truly am a daughter of a King, i already knew that but throughout my mission i have truly come to know and love my Father in Heaven.. i know that all of my weaknesses is to help me become stronger and that without a doubt i am changing everyday to be the young women that our Father in Heaven needs me to be.. i know that things have changed and i know that i am a better person than when i left. i am so grateful for the opportunity that i have to live and serve for our Lord and that everyday i place His name on my chest and i know that i am a representative of Him in these latter days.. 

i know this is the true church on the earth and that Heavenly Father and Jesus are truly leading and guiding us in the latter days!! i love our Savior with all my heart. i hope everyone has a great week.
 
Love Sister Moss
