FAMILY!!!! How are you all doin?? It sounds like it was a good week at home! This week was really good! I was able to adjust really fast to Curitibanos. It is a small town, and it feels like a different country than Itajai! haha it is pretty crazy!! It reminds me of Richfield with a lot of farmers and a small town feel. I am starting to like it though!
We have a few investigators that they have been teaching here for a little while. Also, there are about 600 to 700 members here, but only 60 to 70 are active. So this week we got a list of all the names of the ward members and cut them individually and put them into a notebook separated by neighborhoods. We are working with a lot of these names to try to help re-activate, as well as find new people to teach. We worked a couple days already with this notebook and we were able to teach a lot of lessons. It went great!
Tonight, we are meeting with this kid named Leanderson. He is a great kid! He is about 16 years old and lives on his own. His parents have drug problems and abandoned him. It is a super sad story. He has been coming to church for three weeks in a row now, so I think we will talk to him about baptism and see how that goes. I am excited to meet with him!
I am still getting the area down, so I will have more to talk about next week. I am starting to like it here though! It is really different, but it is cool to experience a different type of city like Curitibanos! I love you all and I hope you have a great week!!! I will write more next week, once I get the hang of everything here. Tell Morg that I love her too!!
