The Book of Mormon is the Word of God

Hey guys!
 What´s everybody doing?  Anything cool?  Tell me these things!  
This one´s of the staff!  From left to right,
Elder C., Elder T., Elder S. and Me!
Okay, so this weeks going to be pretty crazy here in the office!  We have a mission tour, and after that it´s already transfers.  Crazy, right?  We´ve got to coordenate the transfers as well and help everyone get to their new areas.  We´ve been working a lot in the past week!   Elder T, one of the Seventy, is going to visit the mission and give some training to us.  It´s going to be great!  Tomorrow the AP´s are coming into town to help us coordenate the mission tour, and then the other missionaries will start arriving.
The rest of the mission office
Next, this week I got to see how President Kuceki does the transfers.  I didn´t have quite the same image of how he does it, it really changed my perspective.  It is completely based on inspiration; I´ve got a much stronger testimony of that now.  President was working on the transfers last tuesday, and held a meeting with us that afternoon and told us what was going to happen in the transfer.  He explained what he was going to do with each of us and with some of the other missionaries, and then said that he just needed to say a prayer and get a confirmation from Heavenly Father that that was indeed what he wanted.  We finished the meeting and he entered his office again while we went back to work.  Then the time went passing by, and he didn´t come out.  10 minutes, 30 minutes, I think he passed a little over an hour in his office.  As we were getting ready to leave, President Kuceki came out of his office, smiled, and said "It changed!"  He then invited us into his office and showed us where each of the missionaries would be.  It was really neat to hear him explain it!  A lot of things had changed from what he had explained before, and with many of the transfers he told us that he didn´t understand why the Lord wanted so-and-so in such-and-such a position, etc.  It´s someting that´s difficult to explain, but my testimony in the fact that the Lord guides his church has certainly grown as a result of seeing President Kuceki doing the transfers.
   Finally, I. will get baptized this saturday!  We´re really excited for her, it´s been such a neat experience teaching her.  She studies a lot, I´ve never taught anyone that put so much time and effort into studying and understanding what we leave with her.  We spent a whole lesson explaining her questions about 2 Nephi 2:5-7, she wanted to understand the atonement well!  We´re really excited for her baptism, so keep praying for her!
Our "salinha,"this is where the Finance Secretaries do our work!

   Okey-doke, I´ve got to go!  I love you all so much, and i know that Christ lives!  The Book of Mormon is the word of God, and anyone who reads and ponders it with an open heart, and then asks God can know that.  What a marvellous promise!  I love you all so much, have a wonderful week!

Elder S.
