Ola minha querida família!! 

Hey guys!! This week was amazing! And lets just say fall finally arrived here in Portugal! It is raining so much!! I do kind of like it though. 

Well Saturday was seriously amazing!! I got permission to go to Silvana´s and Lucas wedding! She walked down the isle and he literally starting bawling and then everyone started crying! I didn't tell them I was going so they were completely surprised to see me. Lucas got so excited and almost gave me Beijinhos (A kiss on the cheek) We all laughed so hard! It was amazing just see how much they have changed! The gospel changes families. 

Her parents spoke at the wedding and her dad just cried saying how proud he is of her. The spirit was so strong there! It was amazing that I was able to be there and see all of that and to be able to see how much the Lord prepared them! They are so excited to go to the  temple to be sealed as a family next year! 

From all of this and conference I was just thinking about my mission and how blessed I am to see God working all of these miracles. I feel like Ammon in the Book of Mormon when he said, ´´ Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever... Yea, we have reason to praise him forever, for he is the Most High God...  Therefore, let us glory, yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel.´´

My heart is so full! We had a wonderful lesson this week with a man from Africa and he is also so prepared. He bore is testimony about the love he has for our Heavenly Father and he said, ´´I just know that God is our Father!´´ We focused a lot on the Book of Mormon and he is reading and he believes it is true because he is feeling it. We explained that the way he feels when he is thinking about God that peace he feels is the spirit and he will feel that when he is reading The Book of Mormon. He went to Conference yesterday and said,´´Eu gostei bastante.´´ (I like that a lot)

I also just loved conference! We are so blessed! Christs church is all centered on families. That is the way it was established from the beginning. I am so thankful for prophets and apostles. I know they are men of God. The Gospel is simple and perfect it is Christs and The Church is Gods kingdom on the earth and it is growing and it will fill the whole Earth as prophesied! 

I love you all so much!!
