Week 89 - 28 May 2012 Feliz Aniversario Pai

Hey there! First off, I need to say Feliz Aniversário to 
Dad! Is he turning 60 yet? hahaha jk. He said he bought an iPad for himself...when I was at home he could barely even use a cell phone, and now you guys are using iPads?! Crazy how everything changes so much in just a few short years.

So this week was the last full week for Elder C. He´ll be heading out next Saturday, and I don’t really know who I’ll be with and where I’ll be. We’ll have to wait and see. But there were a few cool things that happened this week! We confirmed two baptisms for Tuesday so Elder C. can be here for them. One is a man who is a friend of the Elder´s quorum president. He sure surprised us like crazy. He’s gone to church all alone for the past weeks, and he stopped drinking coffee so he can be baptized. He even helped clean the chapel after church. So that’s cool. 
Also, there is a little boy who is really special. He’s been coming to church all alone for 4 years straight already (he´s only 11), but his mom has never let him get baptized. Many, many Elders have already tried really hard to get her to let him, but she doesn't like the missionaries much so she always kicked them out and said no. But, last week, we made some goals with Gabriel to show his mom the church is helping him be a better person, and then we fasted with him so his mom would let him get baptized. Yesterday at church, he came running up to us and screamed, “The fast worked. She’ll let me get baptized!" So after 4 years, he’ll finally get baptized this Tuesday! How cool huh? It’ll be cool for Elder C. to have a couple baptisms on his last week on the mish haha.

Well, we’re about to head off to Belém to the mission home to take care of some stuff. So until next week! Love you all!
