2 Nephi 22: 2,3

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation. Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

May 28, 2012 A Week in Caucaia

Hey Everyone, Well this week was way fun. I got to spend the week in an area called Caucaia do Alto. It´s in the middle of nowhere. Lots of green, few people, and lots of walking. But it was way fun. My comp for the week was Elder Woodward. We found a few great people and I feel like I was able to help Elder Woodward alot. At the end of the week I came back to the office for Ivaneide´s baptism! It was awesome and the ward got way excited to see and eternal investigator get baptized. Well it´s the last week! I am going work til I die. Our baptisms for this week fell through but everything will workout for the best. I love you all and am excited to see people when I get home here in 8 days! Elder MacLane Taggart

May 21, 2012 Not Much to Say

Dear Family, Well, I don´t really have much to say. This week was way busy because we had zone leader council and new missionary training. We gave trainings about the Doctrine of Christ. We also had 3 baptisms!!! Rafael and Railson are brothers that were referrals from a young man in the ward. They are so good! They are already going to chruch in sunday clothes and are participating in everything. Leticia was going through some problems before the baptism. She wasn´t deciding on her course of action but one day we showed up and she said, "I´ve been waiting for God to fix all my problems before the baptism but I just realized that baptism is the solution to all my problems." So she got baptized. :) So that´s about it. We´re just running around like crazy people. Elder MacLane Taggart

May 7, 2012 Fireside Starring . . . Elder Taggart

Hey World! Wow! This week was amazing! I have never worked so hard and seen so many results! This week we ran all over the mission visiting all the zones and giving trainings. It was so fun! We are working so hard and God is blessing us so much! Even though we have very little time in our own area we have a ton of investigators that are progressing! This week are working to get two of our investigators baptized. Luis Fernando is super firm and excited. Leticia is the daughter of a recent convert that after a powerful family home evening finally decided to be baptized. Best story of the week! As we were getting ready to go to Church in the morning President Pinho called. "Hey Elders, I have a fireside tonight and I can´t go. You guys are going to have to do it for me." What!?! Yeah so basically Elder Hickenlooper and I became the featured speakers of a stake fireside with 2 hours to prepare. It actually turned out really good. And the best was that my recent convert from my first area was there and I totally cried when I saw her. It was amazing. Anyway, this week is going to be super busy also because we have zone conferences everyday. Let´s do it! Elder Taggart
