Why Did I Come on a Mission?

So happy for everything that happening at home. i am glad the kids are enjoying the activities that you have planned.. 

This week was a bit hard we had worked a lot and had nothing to show for it until Friday night!! i know that the Savior is always helping. we had a lot of help from him this week.. there was a point during the week i asked why was last week so easy and this week is so very hard, like no one cared for anything and my companion and i just had rough days and we were complaining about it and the Lord was like trust in me and everything will be alright and that same day we had been just walking in center and we had miracles happen. we had three people stop us to talk to us about the church and now they are doing well in the lessons.. also we went to church and had none of our investigators there but Heavenly Father helped and put a new family in our path so we can teach...

The week was great and i know without a doubt i couldnt have done it without my Savior on my side!!<3 
 
Mom asked me a couple of questions and I want to share my answers with everyone...Here are the questions she asked: Why did you go on a mission? Why do you think Heavenly Father needed you in Brazil? AND have you done what He’s asked you to do?
 
I am on my mission for a lot of reasons, but the most important is because i know that this gospel can change lives and that it helps our families have happiness.. i wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my family and knowing that we can be together forever and that we are happy all the time. i know without a doubt that Brasil is the place our Father in Heaven needed me, i have never doubted it.. i know that they people ive helped needed me and i know that i have had the chance to change their lives for the better.. i try everyday to do what he has asked and a lot of the days i feel like i am doing well.. we can always improve and be better, i know that my Heavenly Father is proud of my work and that i have done what he needs.. i love my mission and the chance i have to be here <3 
 
i love you all so much have a great week<3 
 
Love, Sister Moss
 
 









A Plea from the Missionaries

It's awesome to hear all of the good things going on at home tell Makenna and Trey congrats for me!!

My companion is Sister Santos she is from Santos- Sao Paulo she has 6 months in the mission and she is the daughter of Sister Prieto!! (Meaning Sister Prieto trained her) we are living alone and its something very new for me. i thought i would hate it but i dont hate it, but its not my favorite. i like more people here!!! 

the ward is great they help us in literally whatever we need!! this is the wealthiest area in Ribeirao. its crazy, the members live in the nicest house i've ever seen!! all of our investigators are references and its so much easier to work. i have one piece of advice for you 
 
PLEASE GIVE REFERENCES TO THE MISSIONARIES -- PLEASE!!! It makes all the difference!!! 1/3 references are baptized and 1/100 contacts in the road are baptized. please help the missionaries!

sorry its very short this week but know i love you all!! 

Love, Sister Moss

Transfers...

So i was TRANSFERRED

i was transferred to a ward that (I've heard) is very hard to work with and with a companion i dont know and on the other side of the mission away from everyone i know and i just feel alone here.. i know its just a start to a new transfer and i will give my whole heart in helping this ward be better and to fit in here..  i know that there is a reason for everything and that it will all be okay. i know that i can and will finish strong and that our savior will be helping me like always.

this last week in Barretos was really sad, i HATE goodbyes, and the week was full of them.. members and other missionaries that i wont be seeing again before i come home!! but i love the work we did.. we had 2 people in church with us and they are really progessing well one has a baptism on the 9th which is Saturday i hope i will get the pictures of him!! things are going well i know things will be good in my new area!! 

have a great week <3

Love,

I got to play some soccer!

So this week was very crazy i had a split with one of my favorite sister (sister mevs)!! it was a blast, it was a bit strange because normally we make the splits just with one of the SLT but i am special and i had the comp to my SLT there... it wasnt the best time but  i know exactly why it happened the way it did.. i learned exactly what i needed too!! hahah we had just one person with us in church and it was a miracle that it happened we were supposed to be going to Rio Preto for stake conference but with everything going on in brazil about not having gas and everything we didnt go...

oh President is a bit worried about the mission. we received a call this week that we needed to go to the store in the same time and buy a week worth of food for reserve because all the stores are jacking up prices and some are even out of food.. pray for this thing to go away!!

but we are doing well. as for transfers i will probably be leaving barretos and maybe i will be SLT but i dont know anything hahaah my camera is working for now its strange some days it will work and others no...

today I PLAYED SOCCER <3 its was awesome it felt so good to kick a ball, i have missed it but to be honest im a bit rusty!!! hahaha

i love you all so much and i hope you have a great week<3

Another great week!

This week was a good week. not a whole lot had happened but the work is going slow.. we are hitting our number and this transfer is better than the last!! our best investigators, that i love, dropped a bomb on us and they will be moving this week to a different state.. it's real sad because the only reason they aren't baptized yet is because she needs to finalize her divorce and get remarried and she got news this week that her divorce is going to finalized in the next month and they will be getting married and then baptized.. i am so happy for them because this move will be better for them in the long run but i don't want them to move away!!! :(

We also had conference this week and it was absolutely WONDERFUL!!!1 i loved every minute of it!! i learned so much about something i need to better at and being able to see the Lord work with us through the things we do..

I love you all and i hope you have a great week!! <3

Love,

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.
 
but as usual not a whole lot of news, but I LOVE you all! <3

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
