Baptism of Elder Negreiros' Mom

Stuffed Peppers (of course Taylor would have never eaten this at home)

I am Elder Richardson and I am writing this epistle to the Americans of the Northern Continent and I say unto you:

Elder Richardson, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be a Missionary, separated unto the gospel of God, (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy Scriptures,) concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: by whom we have received grace and missionary service, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: To all that be in the USA, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift and some worldly gift for this I am sending this epistle, to the end ye may be established; that is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
I am debtor both to the Americans, and to the Brasilians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are in the USA also.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Americans first, and also to the Brasilians.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.

So yeah that´s how I feel, I found that in Romans, Chapter 1 verses 1 -19. It was changed a little bit, for me.

So anyway, this next week is transfers and I don´t know what will happen.

Ok this last week was nuts, my comp had an ingrown toenail and had to get that removed so on tuesday we didn´t work at all. He couldn´t walk. Then he got sick and I gave him a blessing and had a cool experience with that.

Then we had a normal week but not a lot of people wanted to let us in.

Then on Friday we were in Monte Alto, going home from lunch when Presidente Prieto called and he said that he wanted us to go to Ribeirão Preto on Saturday at like 3 in the afternoon, so we said ok and that was all he said. We wondered why.

Then Saturday came ( seemed like forever) and then we went to Ribeirão Preto and Presidente came and picked us up and then he took us to a church and he told me to do an interview, so I went and did, and you´ll never guess who I interviewed....

I did the Baptismal Interview for...... are you ready for this?????

Elder Negreiros´ Mom!!!!!!!! That´s right his MOM.

His mom wasn´t a member and she took the missionary lessons and then she wanted him to baptize her so she talked with Presidente Prieto about it and Presidente said it was ok for her to come here for him to baptize her.

Elder Negreiros almost fainted when he saw his Mom. It was pretty funny.

Cool cool cool experience.

So now his mom is baptized and confirmed.

By him.

Awesome huh?

So anyway that was the highlight of our week.
and the highlight of my comp´s mission.

I hope you all have a good week and we´ll see what happens next week.

I am Elder Richardson, LD, and I end mine epistle, amen
