really cool that Jessica reported this week. So we haven´t had a conference yet so there
hasn´t been a chance to even see if I have gotten any packages. So
unfortunately we are just gonna have to wait a little more, so please stop
worrying that you haven´t seen my face. It´s all still here, as pretty as ever.
Maybe a little red cause I got sunburned this week but that´s about it.
of our baptisms did come through this week, a little 8 year old child of a less
active family. His name is Elber. He is so small. Like he walked into the water
and was already almost under, the water came up to his chest. It was kinda
funny. But him and his brother have been walking by themselves the past few
weeks for over a mile to get to church, so I think he was kind of excited to
get baptized. He was pretty happy. And now his family is starting to come back
so that is pretty sweet. But that is about the summary of this past week.
Getting everything set up and confirmed for the baptism and trying to find more
but all of those falling through. So just the one baptism this week.
would send pics from my comp but they take forever to load and I have kinda
been waiting a while. I will try to send them next week. And then hopefully I
will have had a conference and recieved my package by that point. So I will
send all that have passed and then I will be sure to take some new ones just
SO just to clarify right now I am not in a ward, I am in a
branch. And it is doing pretty well. We had 80 people in sacrament meeting so
that was pretty good. We need 20 more and then we can start talking about a
ward. But so that is basically it. We found 2 new families so hopefully this
week we will teach them and they will prove to be pretty cool and receptive.
Unfortunately though the 2 new families is countered by 3 investigators not
wanting any more. Pretty sad when someone drops you but they have their agency
so there is nothing I can do to force them to accept. Just keep working and
hope in time they will open up more.
So I hope everyone enjoys their spring
break of coldness and the time off from school! I don´t really get anything
like that so enjoy it for me too. Be sure to encourage Caden to participate in
the mission prep. It will help a lot. That´s about all I have this week guys.
So here is something in Portuguese. See if you can figure it out. I
love you guys. Love you mom!!!
se você sabe que essas coisas são verdadeiras, você vai seguir o exemplo de
nosso Salvador Jesus Cristo, e seja batizado pelo uma pessoa que têm a
autoridade para realizar essas coisas? Por que nos sabemos que essas coisas são
verdadeiras, e que A Igreja De Jesus Cristo Dos Santos Dos Últimos Dias é a
igreja de Jesus Cristo aqui na terra e que nos temos a autoridade para fazer
seu batismo. Is that good?
(So ifyou know thesethings are true, you will follow theexample of our SaviorJesus Christ, andbe baptizedbya personhavingthe authorityto do thesethings? Why dowe know thatthese things are true, and thatTheChurch Of Jesus ChristOfLatter Day Saintsis the churchof Jesus Christhere on earthand thatwe have theauthority to makehis baptism.)
