Becoming who the Lord wants me to be...

this week i am just so tried my body, my brain and it was just a hard week, but i am growing and learning everyday!!  

so you all know who i was before the mission and now in a few short months you will see the person i hope the Savior wants me to be. everyday i see the people walking by and choosing the wrong path  not coming to church, slamming the door in my face, or even just rejecting me all the way when  i am truly trying to be better.. i know that i am changing and i want to literally help everyone know this truth!!

i have FINALLY stopped worrying about what others think and just strive to be what the Lord needs, it's actually something that i am worried about, not becoming who he needs me to be.. i have been working so hard this past year to change - to become better and i know that everyday i am learning something new to help me and the people around me.. i love this chance i have to be here serving our savior. it has truly changed me and my life!!

this week we finally had someone at church with us and she loved every minute.. she even bore her testimony in our class, by the way i bore my testimony again in sacrament... i had three people telling me i need to go but the most important was the Spirit... i am learning everyday to recognize the spirit and what i need to do to continue to help others..

i love you tons and miss you so much!! <3 have a great week

com todo meu coração, e eu amo vocês muito do fundo meu coração <3

The Lord will protect us

I am doing good... loving my mission. this transfer is a little bit harder but i am good... this area is a lot more difficult to work in. the people are just rejecting us and its very hard to find good people.. we haven't had anyone in church with us for the last 3 weeks and its a bit discouraging... but i know that there are good people here waiting for me. We found someone yesterday who said she never opens the door but she just felt like she needed to this time and she accepted to receive our visits...

Last Monday we had a very different experience I won't give details but this last week satan was working really hard with our district, mainly with the other sisters who I live with. some things happened and they just were told by the spirit to go home and when they did more things happened and they were so scared and they called us and when i answered they said we needed to come home RIGHT now, so we went running because they were really scared and it was just strange...

We got home and we walked into the house and they said that everything that was happening bad just stopped.. i know that the Lord protected them and that this experience was strange but shows that satan is truly powerful and trying in all forms to steal our souls.. that same night our bishop came and rededicated our house and it amazes me the words he said, he promised that angels will be around protecting and watching over us and we all knew in that moment it was true because we could feel them there. it was amazing and a crazy thing that had happened!!!

My foot is good. i was walking in the street (not literally) and i went to step over a piece of wood that was there and i stepped wrong and i stepped on the board with the nail and it went into my foot!! hahah i don't have a photo because it didn't make a very big mark.. just a little one..

This week my mission is focusing a lot on faith and obediences we had mission tour this week and we had Elder Atunes come and speak to us it was so great . he talked about obedience in all rules even when we don't know why, just do it with a smile and know that everything that is there as a rule is there to protect us!! i loved every minute of conference! it was also sad because it was the last time i was able to see one of my better friends here on the mission before she goes home.. and it was a very sad goodbye very quick and sad:( but its okay i know i will be able to talk to her again!!

I love you tons and i miss you all like crazy i hope you all have a great week!!

By the way the other sisters in my house are starting to be trunky for me... hahahaha

Com todo meu coração amo vocês<3

They are going to be sealed in the Temple

This week was great I had my 11 months mark!! and I had a split with Sister Magelby. she is from California and my birthday was good... didn't do much on Friday my companion gave me a teddy bear, and the other sisters forgot, i received a call from President Scholz wishing me a happy birthday and I went to the bishop's house for dinner. It went well, we ate a lot!!

Alynne sent some soap!! hahah I love the smell of this soap. it's a bit more expensive too.. it was great to talk to her. she didn't believe it was me at first. she said my voice is different. Oh guess what Alynne and Elison are going to be getting married in the temple!!!!!!!

That's all for this week!

Love, Sister Moss

I love my Savior with all my heart

This week, the first as senior honestly its just a title and doesn't mean much to me.. the only thing different is that i have the telephone and i am the one who gets "yelled" at if our numbers are low, so that's about it.. nothing special... this week i am trying to get to know the new area its giant!!! i live with S. Mevs shes Brazilian and her companion is S. Peralta she's from Chile.. they are cool. good be getting to know new people!!!

The members i have met are great they help a lot and are very strong in the gospel!! we don't have a lot of investigators we've cut a lot this week and will be starting fresh!! we have one family that's almost ready for baptism, just need to get over the fear of making mistakes again after baptism... does anyone have any advice on what we could teach them to know that even with our mistakes we still have a chance to be clean again? we've already taught them a lot about how the process of repentance is for before and after the  baptism but they still don't get it. if anyone has any ideas it would be a big help!!

well that's it for this week i am excited to be here in Barretos and to be serving our Savior!!! i love Him with all my heart!!<3
