February 11, 2013

FAMILY!!!!  How are you all doin??  I am glad that you all had a good week!!  My week here was really good!  We met with Adriana and Leonardo and got everything taken care of for preparing their baptism.  The baptism is planned for this Saturday, so I am hopin that it goes through.  I feel like they are both ready, there as just some drama to take care of.  Leonardo is 12 years old, and I ill baptize him, and a member from the ward will baptize Adrianna.  Pray that everything will work out for the baptism to be on Saturday.  I am really excited for it!!!  They have both been reading the book of mormon a lot and they are excited to be baptized.  We will meet with them again this week to make sure everything is ready for them.

So Eddy got called as the leader over the missionary work in the ward, and we are super excited about it!  We met with him a couple times this week and we have a lot of ideas plannd to find new people to teach.  That is the toughest thing for us right now is finding new people to teach, because everyone is working during the afternoons, so door to door isnt always the most effective thing to do.  We printed off 500 invites for English clas and we are gonna pass those out this week.  We always leave a message in English class, so we are hopin that this will bring us more people to tteach.

We also met with Marcelo and his girlfriend Cilmara and their 2 year old daughter.  Marcelo is a member, but his girlfriend isnt.  We are trying to get them to come to church, and they are also working on getting married.  Marriages take a long time to do in Brasil cuz of all the paper work, but we are gonna help them with all that they do.

This week was good, but a little tough not being able to find many people who care to hear about the gospel.  But with our new ideas, the work here will start to get better.  Eu sou grato pela oportunidade ser missionário por O Senhor. Eu sei que esta igreja é verdadeira.  Eu sei que O Livro de Mórmon é verdadeiro também.  Eu sei que Jesus Cristo é Nosso Salvador e Ele sofreu por cada um de nós para que nós possamos mudar nossas vidas!  I love you all and I hope you have a great week!!!  Tell Morg that I love her too!
