Week 49 - 22 August 2011 Talked in Sacrament Mtg

Hey ya´ll!  This week was a good hardworking week.  On Saturday, we baptized a boy named Pedro. He is the son of a member here who is just now starting to come back and become active again. Pedro is 11 years old, and he’s a really good kid.  The baptismal service went really well too.  It started pretty late, like around 8:30 pm because everyone showed up late from a conference in Castanhal, so it was pretty rushed, but even like that it went really well.  His dad, which is the less active member, gave the closing prayer and started crying cuz he was so happy.  Then yesterday at church, he was able to be the one to confirm Pedro a member and give him the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

Also, I gave a talk yesterday at church.  It went pretty well, I think.  It was about patience, and I talked about the Sons of Mosiah and based it on the scripture in Romans 5:3-5.  It teaches us that we have tribulations to test our patience, so that we can gain experience, so that we can have hope in the Lord.  It went a lot smoother than my last talk that I gave.  I ended up actually going over the limit haha. I think it was about 10 or 12 minutes long.

Oh another cool little thing is that our bishop here, Bispo Pamplona, he knows a girl that lives at a beach about an hour away called Salinas that wants to be baptized. So we might be able to go there to teach and baptize her. Pretty sweet huh? We need permission from President Campos, but it would be a really cool baptism. Everyone says that it’s one of the most beautiful beaches around here. So that would be a fun experience.

Well family, I love you guys.  I hope you’re all well at home all alone without the kids! haha
