(It was delicious)
A magic trick, for the greatest Mom in the world.
Feliz dia das maes!
Happy Mother's Day
Oh how I wish I was there to tell you how much I love you!

Well first of all, it was so so good to see my darling family [on Mother's Day] and to hear about all the marvelous things that are happening. You are all really very incredible. I am realizing more and more what an incredible blessing family really is. Our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and feel secure and loved in this life, and so when we're little He provides us immediately with a family to take care of us. Then He also has, as part of His plan, for us to grow and progress, and refine ourselves while we're here in this life, and we get to have our own family. Everything we have has a purpose, and everything we do in this life should contribute to our happiness.
We found some really special families this week; first of all, Bill Gates . . . 's cousin and his son (and the son's girlfriend) who have this really loving relationship. Raymund (the dad) has such faith, and his only desire is for his son is a life of faith and peace in Jesus Christ. We also met Iolanda and her two sons Pable and Ian who are marvelous. Iolanda found a Book of Mormon in the street and read it, and has a lot of interest to know more about it. Brendo and his grandma Gi├žoli have a really cute little relationship, and she's gonna make sure he makes the right choice about his baptism.

I feel like I have met SO many families in this past year+ and I know that it is the most important thing in our life. I only hope that I can do my part to be worthy of having a lovely darling righteous (and slightly rambunctious) family.

On a less sentimental note, it rained a LOT this week. and as a result, there was a cloud of bugs in the air . . . it was a little off putting. Also, it was really hot. What a world we live in around here.

This is the last week of the transfer, and we are going to work our tails off.

love love love,

Sister Cornwall
