February 10, 2014

FAMILY!!!  This week was a great one!  We worked a ton and had some great experiences!  We went to Floripa on Monday and Tuesday for a meeting with president!  It went really well and was good to see some of the other missionaries!  Also, I talked to President about my date going home.  He said he would check on it for me.  I just checked his email and he said that the system will allow me to go home August 6th!!!  So looks like everything worked out in the end :)

We are teaching this girl named Ketney, her sister Larissa and Larissa's boyfriend Jadeil.  They are all super cool.  Ketney said that she feels like she has recieved an answer, but didnt come to church on Sunday.  However, Larissa and Jadeil both came to church and I think that they enjoyed it!  We will return to visit them this week.

On saturday we visited a member reference.  The mom is named Tanha, and her two daughters Maria and Jessica.  We got there and tanha is going through some difficulties because her son has been in jail for 4 months now.  She is having a rough time with it.  We taught them about Joseph and the Restoration of the gospel and they loved it.  The spirit was so strong during the whole lesson.  At the end, we invited them to pray about the message, and when they recieve an answer, to be baptized.  They accepted the invite with ease.  The crappy part is that they didnt go to church.  I am not sure what happend, but we will go visit them again this week.

We visited Cassiano and taught him the first lesson.  He is a good kid and has tons of questions which is great for a missionary.  He accepted to read the BOM, pray about it, and when he recieves an answer, to be baptized.  He didnt come to church either which was weird.  We will see what happened.  It is tought bringing people to church, even after having great lessons with them.

I love you all and hope that you have a great week!!!
