Hello family and everyone else!
This week was a week of everything falling through! That seems to be a pretty common theme around her... But that's alright because we managed to get 8 investigators in the church and a few of them are progressing really well! We're gonna go mark the marriage for Maria and Carlos this week, and we got a new family that's really cool. Also, I've got some pretty cool news that was officially announced this week.
We can send emails to friends now!!!!
Kinda cool, huh? Mom had already said something about it a couple weeks ago, but it was confirmed by our Mission President at the latest Zone Leader Council. Though I don't want that to stop me from getting letters still!
Alright, so a little bit about this family that we are now teaching. It's two kids, the mom, and the grandmother. About 6 years ago, they had been taught by and Elder Dalton, but they were never baptized because the kids had little to no interest, and the mom and grandmother smoked. By the way, the two kids are Jessica and Vitor, the mom is Alessandra, and the grandmother is Vera. So recently, Jessica and Vitor had been saying that the family needed a church and that they wanted to go back to the Mormon church. So they talked to Clovis, a member of our ward. Who talked with Renato. Who talked with us. So we talked to the family! And they all want to be baptized. Except for Alessesandra still. We'll give her a bit of time. But Jessica, Vitor, and Vera all have a date marked for the 27th of April. Vera has to stop smoking by then, but Jessica and Vitor have no problems. They just all want to be baptized together! But they are a really cool family, and we're so blessed to have known them!
Other than that, we had a pretty tough week and didn't have much luck with investigators. But that's alright 'cause this week will be better!
The first one is a hat that we saw in a store here in the mall.... Gotta be careful with things you buy in other languages!
The second one is me and Elder Gade in our bathroom with a typical "MySpace" picture with the new sweet shades we bought last week.
Hope you all have a great week! Love you all!
