A Gift from Heavenly Father

This week was a good one we had zone conference and i loved every minute of it!! the whole theme was Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon! it was perfect and i know that everything i have learned was a gift from our Heavenly Father!!

the area is doing alright we have literally talked with everyone and have felt the spirit so strong with them but they don't accept us to return, its a bit harder to find new people but i have faith that the people are out there waiting for me to find them!!

its so sad watching the people who are leaving (from the mission) give their last testimonies in conference. one friend i have i won't be seeing again and it's one of the saddest things ever!! i got to see Alynne (a recent convert) she came to see me after conference and it was so great to be able to talk to her and send my love for her and the family!!<3 i know that our Savior is looking after them and helping them along this new choice of life!!!

i love you all so much and i love hearing from you all have a great week!!<3

I Bore My Testimony in Church!

I am so glad that things are going well there.. i know i don't need to worry about things at home because our Father in Heaven is watching over you!!! i am excited for this new year and that i have the chance to be spending it serving our Savior. this year for my mission, our theme is centered on Jesus Christ, President challenged all of us to bear our testimonies in church about Jesus Christ and guess what i did something i haven't done in a long time....

It was great to do and i know that my testimony has grown so much in the last 10 months!! i know that our savior Jesus Christ loves each one of us and that He really does know all of our names.. i know that we are nothing if we did have Him and i know that i wouldn't be here... i know that i can trust in Him and i know without a doubt that He will be by my side all the time to hep me.. i love my Savior with all of my heart!!<3 

this week was a good one and i am looking forward to a new week time is going by so fast and i don't know what to do.. hahahh soon i will be here for 10 months and its crazy to think how fast time is going.. i have learned so much so far and i am excited to keep learning!!

Okay, First Things First...

WE HAD A BAPTISM ON SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's right my last day in Matão and we had a baptism I am way more than excited that I was able to stay and see him get baptized.... he has changed so much in his life over the last 4 months and i am very sad to have left Matão:(
Secondly, yes i was transferred to Birigui. it's over by Rio Preto where i started the mission. i will be opening the area with Sister Bezerra. she is Brazilian and she is on her last 12 weeks of her mission! we sat on the bus today for 6 hours to get to our new area!
I don't have much to say. i am very sad i got transferred, but i am looking forward to a new area, by the way i am now living with 3 Brazilians!!! no more Americans.. hahahah. mom i am not in the same area as Sage, Skousen, Ramsay, and Cottam any more. we all got separated so i wont be able to get you there email and Skousen's mom doesn't have a facebook... i am so excited to hear from you all next week and i will do my best to be online next week around the same time!

Be All In!

Here on the mission there are many times when i am just sad because the people wont accept the gospel and they just ignore the fact that this is the truth... i know that every moment i give to our Father he is helping me and giving me what i need to be the best missionary he needs for the people i am serving! one slogan my mission has is "Be All In" its something that is said over 100 time a week, we know that there are people who will not listen and that will just ignore us or that will slam the door in our faces but the real miracle is when you find those special people who have been prepared and are waiting for me... this week is probably my last week in Matão and i am so very sad to say that, i have been working with a man for the last 4 months and he is ready to be baptized... we have it planned for this upcoming Sunday and i pray that i am here to see him accept the gospel fully in his life. i know that if I'm not it will be alright because i know he is still choosing the right path and has changed his life completely...

i know this is hard but i wouldn't want it another way. i know that our Savior was born for us to grow and live his gospel to help the others who don't have it, and i know that he has died and lives again for us all... i love my Savior and this opportunity i have to be a representative of his!!<3 

i got your package and i love all the things and i cant wait to open the 12 days of Christmas!!!! about the clothes yes very normal to trade or use others clothes, hahahah i haven't bought much just one skirt... we get home late so we don't cook a whole lot of big meals normally i eat a ham and cheese sandwich toasted, some weeks if i plan my money well enough i will have eggs... we eat things that are really fast and easy to make if we have time to make a meal its normally spaghetti. in the stores, they don have a lot of American food and if they do its REALLY expensive... i am feeling great i have lost a lot of weight and everyone says so.... my feet don't hurt anymore, (well sometimes) and every once in a while my knees hurt - i walk a lot of hills so its normal!!! Elder Cottam and Elder Ramsay are in my zone i have some picture of paintball up that i think they are in... also Elder Skousen is from Gilbert 

i hope i answered all your questions by the way for Christmas P-Day will stay P-day and i don't know where ill be

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

It was a great week, filled with so much love...

thank you so much for the fast this week was a hard one for me and my portugues thank you mommy...

this week was filled with miracles i had splits with Sister Chapple!!! we found 8 new investigators in one day it was a crazy but amazing experience... we had all of our appts. fall through and so we sat down and said a prayer to see what we needed to do for they rest of the night, like 2 minutes after we finished the prayer a little girl on a bike rode up and started asking questions, then we asked her to take us to her house to meet her family when we got there we taught 8 people and the spirit was so strong i know that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers and answers them. it was a great week we had 3 people in church with us and we did a fast with some of our investigators that are trying to stop smoking and drinking!! it was a great week and filled with so much love!!!

Sister Chapple will be bring home a present for the "house" its more of a funny gift but i love it!! i will be giving her you phone number so you can talk to her about picking up the gift or meeting her somewhere to get it... i will let you know bout the packages i have 3 chances to get them before Christmas so i pray they get here soon!!!

today we are going paint balling and i am more than excited... i left the house 2 times this week in "normal" clothes hahahaha

i dont have a lot of time but i love you so much and know that i think and pray fro you all the time i love you with all my heart!!! 
Love, Sister Moss
