FAMILY!!!  This week was a great one!  Such a fantastic wee.  Friday night was Anderson and Mayara's wedding and it couldnt have gone more perfect.  So many members and non members went to support them.  The ceremony went great.  Afterwards, we went up and gave them both a big hug and told them congrats.  Then Mayara turned to us and said, "Por causa de voces dois."  Saying that all this happened because of me and Burton.  Holy cow, talk about the best thing ever to hear!! haha.  The next day was their baptism and it went great as well.  Burton baptized Anderson and I got to baptize Mayara.  On Sunday was their confirmation and also, Anderson already got the priesthood!  They are so happy for their decision.  We spent a little time with them after church and he just kept saying how happy he was.  You can just tell they are extremely happy.  It has been a long and great journey helping them get to this point.  Such an amazing experience!

We also met this awesome family that I talked a little bit about in last weeks email.  Well we visited them on saturday and it was great.  Marcos and Claudia are their names.  Claudia has taken us in with such love and care already!  And they barely even know us! haha.  We taught them about recieving an answer about Joseph and about the BOM.  That is probably their biggest difficulty right now.  We invited them to come to church yesterday and THEY CAME!!!  It was so awesome to see them there.  The members took them in and they had a great experience.  We are so stoked for them.  We are hoping for great things to come with this family.

Also, Hellen that got baptized a week ago, her brother and sister now want to be baptized! haha and her mom is allowing it!  So we will start teaching them this week and help them prepare for baptism.

I love you all and I am so grateful to be a missionary.  The experiences out here are priceless.  Eu amo este evangelho.  Eu sei que esta igreja é verdadeira e é a igreja de Cristo.  Eu sei que Joseph viu.  Se ele não visse, não estaríamos com a igreja verdadeira de Cristo hoje.  AMO VOCÊS MUITO!!!!
