"My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty of thee I sing!"
Hey Happy Independence Day!!!!
I love my country, yeah I love Brasil, but I am American, I’m proud to be so!
Hey on Friday I will make 500 days on the mission!
This last week I wasn’t with my comp on Tuesday or Wednesday, we had to do some divisions, because I guess you have to do divisions with LDs, and seniors and LZs at the end of each month, so we did and I did 2 days in a row.
On Tuesday with Elder Sharratt, and then on Wednesday with Elder Smith. It was good, but still it was kinda weird not being with my comp for 2 whole days.
Then the rest of the week was normal, it was a hard week, not a lot of people wanted to accept our message this week, but one lady named Maria who we taught last week and we didn’t even talk to her during the week wanted to go to church with us and so we went to pick her up and she was ready to go!
She went and said she liked it and would come back the next week, so tonight we are going back to visit her and see if she has any questions.
Elder Smith and I helped an old lady carry her bags up a hill, (yes this really happened). Then I went back to teach her another day and she wouldn’t even listen to Elder Gomes. On Sunday I did an interview for a man named Marcio, he was cool and is so ready to be baptized, so I told him he could do it next week!
Then we went to lunch and by this time it was 4 in the afternoon then we went to our LMA’s house to help him with his home improvements. (See the pictures) Then we tried to teach people until the end of the night. That was about it.
So I have one more thing to say.
It must be said, I hope the people who need this the most read this, it is in respect of the passing away of our Dear Beloved Sister Karen Oborn.
I love her, and her family, I want to let them know they are in my daily prayers. I know that she is happy now and not in pain. I am so grateful to live in a time with the Restored Gospel and I know that it is true. I know it is hard to let someone go, but sometimes we need to let God do His work, and let people answer His call. It is not in our Human Nature to let such a thing go so easily, but knowing God’s Nature, it eases the pain. I love the Oborn family, I want them to know that I love them, and that God Loves them and God needed Sister Karen Oborn home. We don’t know why, but He did. So He called.
Please I implore all of you to pray for the comfort of the Oborn family, God will answer your prayers, all you need is a little faith. You can help people more than you know through the miracle of prayer.
I am Elder Richardson, LD, and I end mine epistle, amen
