Oliver in Brazil: September 2023

 Hey Fam!!! 
I wish I was having an awesome, 
beautiful Back-to-School Feast dinner with y'all, 
but I can't this year or the next. 
However, our theme is Legit!!!
When I think of Jesus Christ, I think of His genuine, caring, 
and distinct awareness of us all. 
He loves each and every one of us perfectly. 
He thought about every single one of us as 
He suffered in the garden of Gethsemane, 
and He is aware of us now. 
He's also aware of our plans, our goals, 
our wants and needs. He knows our intentions, hopes, and dreams. 
And like our family quote says, He's got confidence
 in us to carry out and fulfill our journey to become better 
disciples of Him and to experience joy. 
To serve Him with all our heart, might, mind, and soul. 
He also knows it's hard. Life is busy, sad, and sometimes frustrating. 
Our dreams might not work out the way we want, 
or they might just take time (the Lord's time). 
Because of this, Jesus Christ carried out the Atonement,
so He knows exactly how we feel and how to counsel, bless, and help us. 
Because of this, we can have confidence in Him.
I love that it's a two-way street; have confidence in Him, 
and know that He has confidence in us. 
I love our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives, 
and I am confident He will bless our family. 
I love y'all, and I think about you every day. 
Last week, a man was stabbed and killed, and we prayed with the murderer
as we walked up to him, except we didn't know what was going on.
We were scared coming up on this scene, and he was terrified.
We quickly prayed with him (as he was still holding the knife!)
and then ran as far away as we could!
For reals!
President wants us to always wear our jackets and ALWAYS
carry a copy of The Book of Mormon in our hands.
It shows others that we are ministers and not drug dealers or anything.
This says, "prohibited to throw trash here 
unless you wanna go to a PCC tribunal court."
