Out with our Elders
October 2, 2014
São Mateus is a new Group. There are a lot of families that live in this area of Cuiaba. We have 4 Elders in this Area. We went out with the Elders and did visits. It was a great time with our Elders. President and I went with Elder Neves and Elder Vieira. They are both Brazilian. Elder Neves just made this connection with one of the members. It is pretty amazing!
Elder Neves shared with us this story. The Group Leader, his wife, is a RM and she served where Elder Neves is from (far left). She was talking about a family that she baptized while serving her Mission. This was 20 years ago. She brought out a photo and it was HIS family! In the photo was his grandparents, Mom and Dad, Aunt, Cousins, Sister. So here 20 years after his family was baptized he is now serving where the Missionary that baptized his family is! This is so amazing. Talk about 'fruits of your labors', this is the perfect example!
