FAMILY!!!  How are you all doin??  Holy cow it is so good to be back in Itajai and my comp Elder Castro is such a dope kid!  It is good to be back with him as well.

I am loving the work here.  Being a missionary is being like a psychologist most the time cuz people tell you their difficulties and you help them according to their needs.  It is preparing me a lot for my future proffession :)

We have some great investigators right now.  We are teaching this lady named Vera.  Her family lives in another state and are members of the church but she never was baptized.  She went to stake conference this week and loved it.  She went to the family session on Saturday and the normal session on sunday.  Tonight we are going to do a family night with her at a members house.  She said that she wants to put into practice goals to be more disciplined and to improve.

We are teaching this guy named Ricardo.  He is about 35 years old and has a big desire to be a part of the church.  We taught him the commandments and he got rid of Coffee to be able to be baptized.  We marked his baptism for saturday.  He went to conference yesterday as well and had enjoyed it.  We will visit him tomorrow.

In the stake priesthood session, stake pres asked us to give a training to all the bishops and ward mission leaders from the stake! hahah how funny is that?  So we prepared a powerpoint and talked about their responsabilities in helping in the mission work.  It went really well!  Lots of people afterwards told us that it was great.

I have seen tons of people that I met here over a year ago.  I was welcomed and received so well by the people here.  It is great to be back!

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

Elder Howard
