Hope! Future! Optimism!
Our Area of Ipsep (lies more or less in Imbiribeira, next to Recife) is exploding! We are running through the slow march of contacts, but once or twice a day we hit gold and it is all worth it! My companion is himself becoming a beacon of obedience and rigor. We are starting to run and exercise together every morning at 6h30. Mwahaha. I didn’t really know how to help him out in finding obedience and a love for work on the mission so I just kind of put my head down and kept chugging along and…well…God works miracles. We have a blast together. I think every day something happens that neither of us expected or have ever seen before. A miracle, is what I’m trying to say. Every day a miracle happens. And our view and vision of this work is expanding. Together! I had my first Sunday in our ward. Lots of young couples, lots of energy. I couldn’t ask for a better companion. I couldn’t ask for a better area. I couldn’t ask for a better two years.
