Feliz Páscoa! Be Deeply Rooted in the Gospel!

Bom dia! 

Feliz Páscoa! (Happy Easter!)

Conference was flippin awesome! I watched it in Portuguese so I didn´t get AS much out of it as I would in English, but I sure learned a lot. We brought an investigator to the last session of conference. She enjoyed it, but here 8 month baby was like crying the whole time. 

This week was a little disappointing with the work and all. We didn´t get to work as much as we wanted with conference and all and so we didn´t have as much success as we wanted. But we´re not going to let our faith falter. We´re going to keep working hard this week. Tonight we´re traveling to Londrina to a meeting with Pres. Genaro. I´m going to sleep in Elder Coelho´s (ex comp.) house tonight! It´ll bee good catching up with him and all. Then on Thursday we have zone meeting so it´s going to be super busy this week. We´re going to have to take advantage of the time we have to work in our area. Pray for us that it goes well. 

The members of this ward are awesome! There was a Lual activity for the  youth and young single adults this week and we were invited at the end since there would be non members there. When we got there they gave us a huge box full of FOOD! Man it was so awesome. The youth were behind it but the whole ward helped out. Man it´s going to take a whole transfer to eat all of the food they gave us. I ate so much that i think i´m gonna get sick, baha!

Elder Nascimento is a super funny guy and is a great missionary. He´s still working hard. 

One of my favorite talks was from Dallin H. Oaks (i think). He talked about the importance of being deeply rooted in the gospel. If we aren´t DEEPLY rooted in the teachings of the restored gospel, the smallest winds of trials can blow us away or we can dry out in the sun. That really made me stop and think about the importance of the gospel. Without it we won´t be able to grow. whoops, I wanted to say more but i´m out of time. 

Love you all and miss you tons! Be deeply rooted in the Gospel!

Boa semana!
Elder Jackson
