Feliz Pascoa

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Hello my family and friends! HAPPY EASTER! Seriously I´m a little sad that Easter isnt as cool here. It´s not as commercialized as the States, as you can imagine. It is alot more focused on The Holy Week rather than the day of Easter. Needless to say, I did not eat ham nor funeral potatos.
BUT this week was full of cool things and I have tons of pictures (youre welcome momma).

On Friday we had a Mission Conference. Presidente Bonini is going home in June(with me) and he´s been preparing a conference for every transfer until he goes home. Then on Saturday we watched a play done by members of the church here called "Jesus the Christ". Its basically like the Easter Pageant, I think. But it was awesome beacuse it was my second time watching it here on the mission. This year I could see various members participate whom I had passed in their wards. I was so so so happy to see these talented members depict the life of Jesus Christ. Fortaleza and Fortaleza Leste watched it together so there were tons of missionaries there. The members from our ward talked to us after and said that there was a special spirit there that there wasnt in all the other apresentations because they were performing for true representatives of Jesus Christ. My heart swelled up a little bit, I thought that was so sweet.

And Sunday... well Easter really isnt the same here but I was so so happy to feel the Savior´s love for me in His House. It´s incredible how you feel the same spirit on the other side of the world. I love my Savior. I know that he died for each one of us. But most importantly, He is risen and He lives.  I hope this week was a reflective moment for everyone as it was  for me. I wouldnt want to be anywhere else giving everything I have to the Lord.
