This week was great! We had two baptisms! I know that we had said there would be three, but something happened and he wasn't baptized. But he will be next week! So this week Claudineia and Hugo were baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. It was a pretty great week.
What happened with the other guy... His name is Henrique. I don't know if I said that last week or not. Well, we called his girlfriend who is a member of our ward, and asked her how we would schedule the interview and baptism and all that this week, but when we did that, she said that Henrique knew nothing about the baptism! So we got Henrique's number and called and talked to him a bit. Turns out that when we said that 17th, he thought we meant the 17th of next month! (Which is September, by the way. That came really fast.) So we talked to him a bit, and he agreed to the 24th of this month, which is this Saturday. It'll be the first baptism in the morning that I've ever taken part in. It'll be at 10:30AM Saturday morning. Weird. But it'll be great!
Not much else happened this week, wee spent a lot of our time in divisions with other areas because of various problems and interviews and such. But It was a good week.
I'm super tired right now because we just went up the mountain in Poços again (yes, for a third time), and this time we basically ran up, sat up there for an hour or two, then ran down. And it had rained the night before, so the trail was reeeeaaaaalllly slippery. So I fell. Only once, though. It didn't hurt too much. Plus I got a monkey to climb on my shoulder! He was nice and fluffy. It'd be cool to have a pet monkey.
Anyways, I hope you all have a great week! I'll try to send some pictures if my companion gets them to me quick.
I love you all!
