Words from Elder Jared Anderson in Brazil

Dear Family,
It is crazy how fast the weeks pass. I feel like i am dreaming. I still have so much to learn and time is coming to an end. But things are going great this week was a little tougher. One of our recent converts has fallen away for the moment. Because her testimony was not firmly planted in our Saviour Jesus Christ. We continue striving to help her but until now to no avail. I beg each of you to head the counsel in Helaman 5:12. I was asked by an investigator if this is the true and chosen church why are there people falling away. i thought a lot of this this past week and we are taught that we must have our testimony planted firmly in Christ that WE as members of the church must help those who are in need of our help, love and support. Also we MUST strengthen ourselves daily through scripture study and prayer and through our weekly church meetings. I have truly seen being a mission that it is the "small and simple things" (1'nefi 16:29) that really make the BIGGEST difference. a little effort gives great outcomes. our constant effort changes lives and will change this world. I love you all and be happy :)
-Elder Anderson
