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

Piracicaba Flash Back!!!

Well this week was not normal. My companion and I came to Piracicaba Monday night be cause we had conselho da liderança on Tuesday. I was super excited because we would be staying in my first area over night, and I was hoping that I would get to see some of my recent converts and what not.

 But what happens, 2:00AM Tuesday morning my companion woke me up because she was feeling really really sick and she was feeling alot of pain and what not, and after listening to her all of her symptoms and what not I was like "Umm.. I think we need to call president." And you know its like 2:30am haha of course no body wants to call president at this hour.. But Finally I called him he gave us permission to go to the hospital. Luckily I still knew my way around Piracicaba so we got there with out a problem. But after doing hours of exams the doctor finally came up to us and was like "So you are going to have to stay over night and tomorrow you are going to have to have surgery because you have got a huge rock in your kidneys" ...great...

Yeah so that was a fun conversation explaining all that to president. Luckily the church building where the meeting was being help was just down the street from hospital, and I think President ran to come and see us because about 5 min after I got off the phone with him, he was there. haha I Love Presidente Canuto.

So I spent the last week sleeping in the hospital with my companion as she has been recovering from surgery. Actually it wasn't that bad. It was kinda fun. My companion and I got this huge room to our selves, the nice hospital ladies brought us food every 3 hours, Presidente let us watch disney movies (Yes Finally got to watch Frozen!!!), and the best part was President and Sister Canuto came and hung out with us for a couple of hours. :) Gosh they are my favoritest people ever. 

Also Yesterday I had a really cool experience. We got to go to stake conference here in Piracicaba, and it was really really powerful. The spirit was so strong and the best part was I got to see all of my recent converts. You have no idea how happy that made me. I got to see Fred, my first baptism, he is doing so good. He has a calling and everything and guess what!?! NEXT WEEK THEY ARE GONG TO THE TEMPLE!!!!!! you have no idea how happy that makes me to see your investigators become an eternal family :) I also got to see Eduardo, who is also preparing to go to the temple next month. And the Sisters that are serving here brought Cida, one of the contacts that I made here over a year ago to church and she is getting baptized next week. Honestly I am so grateful that Heavenly Father let me see some of the fruits of my labors here in Piracicaba. It feels so good to know that my work here was not in vain.

I love you all! I hope you all have a good week :)
Com Amor,

Satan Slapin!!

This week was INCRÍVEL!! We did some major Satan Slapin this week!! WOOOHOOO!!

We started out our week praying that we would see miracles, and that we would be able to meet our goals. Oh My Gosh!! We saw so many miracles this week, and we exceeded the standard of excellence for all of the key indicators including lessons, referências and contacts! And we had so many new investigators at church this week. I'm full of gratitude. tô cheia de gratidão. We are working so hard trying so hard to help others come unto Christ. I can really feel the spirit testify to these people that Jesus is the Christ and that the Fullness of the Gospel has been restored. 

President told us that if we have the faith, and if we work hard we will be able to baptize every month. Bom, I had a baptism in December and January, but I still hadn't had one in February, this week my companion and I have been praying for a miracle that we would be able to have a baptism this Saturday. And Guess What?! We Did!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

On Saturday João Gabriel was baptized. He is 10 years old and a  younger brother of a recent convert, and the missionaries have been teaching him for a long time but he has never been baptized. So this week we had a really powerful and spiritual lesson about Jesus and how Jesus was baptized and how we need to be baptized, and We invited him and he accepted!!!! He is my little buddy (well actually he is meu pequeno gordinho) he is so receptive to the spirit. And he has such a strong testimony. I Love him :)
 Batismo de Gabriel!
 Gabriel and my favorite family ever!!!!! I love Love this Family! :)

I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve here. I love this area, I love my companion. I am so excited about the work that is going on here. Life is good. Love you all!!
