Até ao proximo

Well to describe in one word these past 18 months I think I would choose..incrível.. 
That past by so fast. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity. This week was super cool. We had our last multizona, I gave my last testimony. I pretty much cried like everyday saying goodbyes.

This week in our district meeting out of no where Elder Antunes (from the seventy) walked in and noticed that we were all a little bit Sad. We told him we were a little upset because we haven't been baptizing as much as we wanted to. and BOM!! He gets in there and is like look lets open the scriptures so we opened up to Helaman 10 

 Blessed art thou, Nephi, for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how thou hast with unwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people. And thou hast not feared them, and hast not sought thine own life, but hast sought my will, and to keep my commandments.
 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold, I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.
 Gosh the spirit was so strong. That Guy is awesome.
But I know that the work that I have done here is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I know that he is happy with me. I know that I gave my mission everything. EVERYTHING. I know that God lives and that he loves me. I know that all of us are his sons and daughters.He has so much in store for us!
I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to known my Savior. To have been His servant.

"When the day arrives for an honorable release as a full-time missionary, you will depart from a field of labor and return to your family-- but you will not cease being and becoming a missionary"
- Elder David A. Bednar

Thank you all so much for everything Love you all!

até o fim

I can't believe that this is happening...My mission is ending. It hit me this week, that my time is ending as a full time missionary. It hit me at our branch activity Saturday night. The activity was a going away party for one of the members that is leaving on their mission this week. As we were listening to the final testimony of his parents I just started getting a little teary eyed... But I just feel so much love for the people here in Brazil. Its hard saying goodbye to people when you have no idea when you are going to see them again. I Love Brazil. I know that God knew exactly what he was doing when he sent me here. He knew exactly what I needed. I just feel so blessed and so humbled to know that My Savior had enough confidence in me that he sent to me here to represent Him. to do His work.

These past couple of weeks have been really hard, trying to get people to church, trying to get people baptized, trying to help build this small little branch..but this is hard. But I know that the Lord is helping us. He has never left us, He is pleased with the work that we are doing here.

We went and did divisions with the other Sisters this week. It was so motivating to go there and help them. Gosh our sisters are awesome. They are doing such a good work in there area and really helped us to have more faith and feel more motivated about our area. I Love them. But also I felt sad because this was the last time I will do divisions with them..haha well lets be honest its like the last time for everything. I can't really explain how I am feeling. I feel like I am feeling every emotion ever made to know to man. But I know that there isn't much more to learn  here, I need to do other things with my life to continue to grow and develop and be more like my Savior.
Its going to be all good!

Thank you so much for all of your letters and emails and prays and support. I love you all!

This week was full of miracles! Wow. 
So this week we were working alot with Naidir. She is a mother to one the recent converts here in Lago do Silério. And for the first time we were able to get her to come to church!! Woohoo. We are going to work really hard this week to try and set a baptismal date for this month. Hopefully everything will go okay. With the Lords help it always will. 

We have been working so hard. This week was the only week that my companion and I had to stay in our area, these next couple of weeks we are going to be doing a bunch of traveling, but it will be good. We got in a ton of lessons and we were blessed with a lot of miracles. 

I love the feeling you get when you get into the lesson and  you feel the spirit guiding you to know what to say and how to help these people. I honestly don't think that there is a better feeling than this. I am going to miss this. :(

Here is some pictures of my life,

Love you all, 
Have a good week :)

General Conference

Guys, General Conference was soo good!!! 
Well okay lets be honest, that was the most Trunkiest General Conference that I have ever seen!! Holy cow,
Lets get married, Lets have a eternal family, Lets go to the Temple!!!! Don't break the law of chastity!
Well.....I was hoping for a little bit more on Missionary Work you know, cause I'm a missionary..but it was still really good.

I was so excited because we got 2 Families to watch conference with us!!! And it was perfect when our investigators  were listening to the prophet talk about temples and eternal families.. Gosh our investigators are awesome! The spirit was so strong when President Monson was talking..AHHH It was so Good.

I got to watch the sessions on Saturday in English and the Sunday afternoon session in English as well. I like watching in English, but I was kinda surprised about how much I liked watching in Português with our investigators..(although i did go back and watch Elder Holland give his talk in English..because lets be honest the emotion in his voice is just not the same with the Português translator)

This week was really good, we had some last min meeting that we had to go to in Piracicaba which were really good. We taught a lot of lessons this week and we got 5 investigators in church on Sunday!! The work is moving on here in Jaú

But this week, my testimony has really grown on the importance of families. I am so grateful for my family. For everything that they do for me. And to know that my family is eternal. That we can be together again after this life.

What are you doing to make your family eternal?

Watch this:

Love you all,
Have a good week!

Broken Hearts

Well my heart broke a little bit this week. Actually it broke a lot. its like in a bijilion pieces. :( 
Long story short. Wellington did not get baptized. We went there talk to his mom, she was all cool about it you know she was like "yeah if Wellington wants to gets baptized he can get baptized", So we ask if we can invite the elders over to do an interview. "yeah sure whatever".

So Friday night we get there with the Elders,Oh my firework!!! Wellington wasn't there when we got there and so we waited for him to get home, and oh my gosh... She did not like that we were waiting. So she pretty much yelled the heck out at us and told us that he will never get Friday was hard. I cried. Guys missions are so hard. Wellington is so pure and so righteous and i know that God has so much love for him. 

But got to keep going, got to keep looking for the people that really want to Follow the path of Jesus Christ.

I am so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ, I am so grateful for all that he gives me. I know that he knows how each of us is feeling. I know that he has a purpose for everything. Missions are hard, but I am so  sooo grateful for the opportunity I have to serve as a missionary. The relationship that I have developed with the Savior is priceless.. He Lives.

This Easter the Church is promoting this film, its about 3min and if you haven't watched it yet you should. It can help you strengthen your relationship with your Savior.

I love you all, Happy Easter and Happy General Conference :)

"Suffer the Children..."

This week as really Good. My companion and I traveled a lot visiting our investigators in the other towns that surround Jaú but still make up part of our branch. Also we went and did a couple of divisions with some of the Sisters in São Manuel. It was super fun. I Love doing divisions. I got to go with Sister Moraes and Sister Almeida, they are both being trained and Holy Cow, they both have so much gas, haha it was kinda hard to keep up with them. But it was cool to be able to show them different técnicas and what not. It was cool. 

But because we went and did divisions with them we lost about 3 days in our area. Its hard to leave your area for that long especially because we just got back last week from Piracicaba, after my companion had surgery. (which she is doing fine by the way). But the Lord blessed us, because we found someone to be baptized!!! WOOOHOOO

Wellington, has 10 years, he is the grandchild of one of the members here in Jaú. He may just be the purest and nicest kid I have ever met. Wellington comes from a very humble home. Actually his house is more like a fort. Its got blankets and old wooden planks as walls and big tin slate as a roof. There are old rugs covering the dirt floors and they burn wood to keep the place warm.I don't think I have ever been in a more humble home than this one. But the grandparents that take care of him have a lot of faith!!! May they are beautiful people. Wellington is beautiful.

I have been so humbled this week with our experience with Wellington that all I think about is Christ saying "Suffer the Children to Come to Me" Christ loves the children. I do too. I am praying that this week his mom will give him permission to be baptize and if everything goes well We will have levou um mais alma a Cristo. :)

Love you all! 
Thanks for your support :)
Love, Sister Roberts
