January 20, 2014

Ok, well to no ones suprise I´m sick AGAIN! I have 3 different illnesses and I´m taking so many different medicines and vitamins. Thankfully, I´m on the upswing and I think that afer a good long Pday nap today I´ll feel much better. I think I´ve lost about 15 pounds this transfer jeesh.
This week was good. We had an awesome family night with Vera. The bishop Relief Society Presidency, her visiting teachers, and the stake RS president all went to her house. It´s amazing to see her becoming a firm member. She´s going to get a calling this week too! Wooo!
In other news, I am now companions with Sister McBride! She was my MTC batch mate and served for a transfer in the same mission in Colorado with me too. She is great! She´s super calm and happy and loves to work hard! It´s going to be great to work with her!
Other than being sick, I don´t feel like I have much to tell. In these past few weeks I have gained a strong testimony about trial and dificulties. I have come to learn that HF loves us more than our mortal minds can comprehend and that His vision is so much greater than ours. He cares so much more about our eternal progression than our immediate comfort. Remember that HF will never give us a challenge that prohibits us from having happiness. Because of JC we can always have hope, we can always have peace and we can always have happiness.
I love this quote from President Utchdorf that my cutie sissy sent to me today:

With this in mind, I invite you to walk confidently and joyfully. Yes, the road has bumps and detours and even some hazards. But don’t focus on them. Look for the happiness your Father in Heaven has prepared for you in every step of your journey. Happiness is the destination, but it’s also the path. “Peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come” is what He promises.11 That is why He commands us to “be of good cheer.”

Be of good cheer! Everything will work out, always, if we trust in the Lord.
With love and happiness from Brasil,
Sister Brown
