Week 30 Gramoré Natal, Brazil

Another week in Gramoré I don´t have too much to say this week, since it was pretty much normal. We´re still having a hard time finding people at home and some of the addresses we went to find (from people who had given us their address last week) didn´t even exist, which can be discouraging, but we definitely had some tender mercies this week. Luciana is progressing reallly well. We taught her about the Restoration of the gospel, and she gave the cutest prayer afterwards. She thanked God for our wonderful visits and told Heavenly Father that she really wanted to visit His house on Sunday. Unfortunately, she didn´t come to church, so we´re going to see what happened. We have another investigator named Daniel who we´d been teaching for a while but had never gone to church, so we went by on Saturday night and told him that since he´s not going to progress until he goes to church, we weren´t going to visit him anymore until he went. Then he surprised us by showing up on Sunday! The ultimatum worked ;) Another of our investigators, the 12-year-old young man named Ismael, also visited for the first time on Sunday. He´s part of the rastafari religion, which I didn´t even know was a religion, but he liked church on Sunday and is reading the Book of Mormon. And Maycon and Maria José went to church too. When Maycon found out that there´s going to be a transfer this week and we might leave, he started praying and asking Heavenly Father to let us stay here. During sacrament meeting, he asked Sister Nóbrega to write our names on a piece of paper and then he drew a heart around them. He is the cutest thing :) That´s pretty much all the news I have from the week, and I didn´t even take any pictures. Even though it´s been discouraging at times, I´m grateful to be here in Gramoré. I´m learning patience, and I always take comfort in the fact that my Savior went through much harder things and that missionary work never was easy, not even for Him. I´ll let everyone know what happens with transfers! Love, Sister Amy Weatherford
