Good morning family and everyone else!
This week was pretty good. WE HAD TWO BAPTISMS!!!!!! Ana Paula and her son, Giovane were baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. It was really good! The whole week we had been visiting them every day, and Ana Paula was getting suuuupper nervous about the baptism day and could not wait for the day to come. I don't think I've seen someone so nervous, yet so prepared for baptism in my life. It was soooo good to see her be baptized! And she's so happy now! Plus now we'll start teaching her daughters and possibly her parents. Yaaaay references!
This week we also have a baptism planned for Friday, another woman named Samara. However, she has a few problems, and if she can't get rid of them here pretty soon, she might not be baptized this week... We talked to her yesterday and gave her a blessing to help her, and we'll go back there tonight to try and help her out some more. We'll need lots of prayers to help her get baptized! It's been over 6 months since the missionaries first met her, and she's progressed so much since then! She can't fall now!
This week passed suuuper fast, and I don't even remember what happened... All I know is that we had a ton of lessons, I was super tired all week, and we had baptisms! I forgot everything else! Soo... Here, I'll send pictures of cake as well! We have an investigator that currently has a son on a mission, so she treats us really well. Every time we go over there, she has some salgados and cake. Really good cake. So we took a picture with the cake. And Renato.
Well, that's about all the exciting stuff that happened this week.
Well that was pretty cool. The power just went out in the mall. Turns out pretty much the whole mall is run on generators when that happens. The only place on this floor that was without electricity for about 5 minutes straight was this LAN house that I'm in. But it's back now, and thanks to Gmail, my email was saved!
I hope you all have a fantastic week! Love you all!
