Aquele relatório semanal yo 5/23/2016

Ola meus amigos e família!!!!!!!!
And sorry that i didn't throw out one of dem weekly updates last week! 

We have been doing super good here in MACEDONIA SIÃO!  
Its been pretty calm here, due to a few difficulties of my friend Elder Travassos we have had to keep it a little more mellow. We have been able to work normal, but Sister Del Guerso just told us to take it a little easier. Hes excited to be fully charged and ready to go to be able to PREACH DAT GOSPEL!!!

We have been super blessed by the Lord with an awesome investigator that i wanted to talk about real quick,.. Her name is Sandra, a couple weeks ago we were looking for someone that we did a contact with on the street a little while back named Alexandra who was super receptive and we wanted to visit her for the first time. We went to the road were she lives, and found the address that she gave us. We called for Alexandra and out came a woman that we didn't recognize. A small, skinny woman who barely could speak due to asthma. We told her we were looking for Alexandra and she explained that Alexendra didn't live there. She told us her name was Sandra and we asked her if we could share a message with her, and she said "of course! come on in!" We ended up discovering that this woman is a widow who lives all alone and was feeling very lonely and looking to find a purpose in her life, looking to find the right path for her. We testified of the savior, gods plan for us, and that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. At the end of the lesson, she told us that she had never felt anything like what she felt when we shared that message with her. She said that it all just made such sense and felt so good about what we were telling her. We testified of the holy ghost and invited her to be baptized, she accepted and became so happy. She went to church and absolutely loved it, and constantly expresses the change in her life that she is feeling. I feel so blessed to teach such prepared people by the Lord. I know that on that day, We knocked on the "wrong door" to find Irmã Sandra. I know that the lord prepares specific people for his missionaries to find. I am so grateful, and truly just love this work. I bear my testimony that this is His work, and His church on the earth. I love you guys all so much and hope you have an awesome week!

Elder Barton
Therefore, follow me, and listen to the counsel which I shall give unto you.
 Behold, and lo, I have much people in this place, in the regions round about; and an effectual door shall be opened in the regions round about in this eastern land.
 Therefore, I, the Lord, have suffered you to come unto this place; for thus it was expedient in me for the salvation of souls.
 Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men;
 For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say.
Safe to say, Elder Barton is having some GREAT days!

His companions woke him up at midnight to give him their gift...

Elder Barton LOVES spice cake!
He has requested this cake almost every year!
  We sent him the mix and frosting...
He made his spice cake and was a happy guy!
