Week 37 - 30 May 2011

Feliz Aniversário, Papai!!!  Your birthday is coming up real soon, so I wanted to wish ya a happy birthday. J  You’re only turning 27 right? haha jk.  Hope you have a good birthday this Wednesday with mom!

This week was pretty normal.  Nothing too crazy or exotic happened.  We moved the baptism of the girl, Lorena, to Thursday so it can be on the same day as another 8 year old girl in the ward that are friends.  So that should be pretty fun.  As for that family of Dário and Catyane, we’re still working with them quite a bit.  They didn’t go to church on Sunday again...but we’re gonna have a family home evening there with them tonight and really try to get them ready spiritually and with the circumstances at home to get baptized this month.

In our church building here we have 2 wards, ours, Independência, and another called Entocamento.  About 2 weeks ago, President Campos closed the area in Entrocamento and put the missionaries in a different area because that ward hasn’t had a baptism for about 9 months.  But on Sunday, one of the counselors of that ward talked to us because they have a few referrals that seem to be pretty interested in the church.  But since there aren’t missionaries there anymore, they are asking us if we would be able to teach them and stuff.  We need to get permission from President, but we’ll see what he wants to do about teaching these referrals.  It would be cool to be able to teach them so that the ward can have a few baptisms!

Besides that, we seemed to run into quite a bit of either drunk people or snakes (girls that try to flirt with us) during the week.  We had some funny conversations with some drunk people who tried to talk to us haha.  All we can really do is try to get their info and say that we’ll try to talk to them another time when they actually know what they’re saying haha.  It’s actually pretty funny cuz sometimes I can’t even understand what they’re saying, so I look to Elder Villela for help.  But a lot of the times even he can’t understand what they’re saying too haha.

Love you guys and thanks for the support every week.  Also, I’m so proud and happy that Rio is at the MTC right now getting ready to serve a mission too!  It’s pretty cool to have a sister serving as a missionary at the same time as me.

Well, tchau tchau!  Até próxima!
