Week 49

This week was fantastic. We had many miracles happen. For example, we were able to teach 10 new people this week and mark 5 dates for baptism. If all goes well, we will have a lot of baptisms on the 23rd. We also had two people come to church. I know you want to learn about them so here we go:

  • Barbara- 19- went to church; will be moving to Washington this August to live with another family and study law (I think); loves our church due to its tranquility (you will not believe the things I have seen and heard happening in churches here).
  • Kelen and Wendel- 10 and 13- kids of two less actives who went less active due to the fact that they didn't know that there was a church just down the read from them. Wendel just had a foot surgery so he will be in a cast for two more months, but looks very promising. Kelen would have attended church yesterday but didn't due to a family emergency. Baptism date: 23-July-17.
  • Maria, Paulo, João- 50+,50+, 19- Maria is very opinionated and they promised to come to church next week. Baptism date: 23-July-17.
  • Brito- 50+ - father of a member; very welcoming and nice; will come to church next week.
  • Rosangola and Fernado- 30, 8- very receptive; just that the boyfriend is barely ever home and apparently not too receptive about religion. Baptism date: 23-July-17.
  • AnaMaria-50+- very welcoming and will come to church next week.
So, ya. A lot of success. We are also having a soon leaving missionary (Elder Jardine has been switching his phrases around more lately...) with us to kind of get him ready for when he leaves in August.

Happy late birthday, mom!!!!!! It was good to see the pictures and hear how you guys are doing. Keep having a great week and tell me how everything is going.

Love you all and hope you have a great week.
