So first off my brother told me that there is this program on the mission that I have to do that when i have 6 months left i have to start called "6 months to sexy". So Riley I have a doubt this is for people who aren't sexy to get sexy in 6 months but what do I do because I am already sexy, do I still have to do it? Just kidding I know I am on a mission and I have grown up a lot but I still like to joke around, the good thing that I learned on the mission is how to joke.
Hey mom so you might get a little sad but the LAN house that I went to today doesn´t let you send pictures and the guy here is super annoying but don´t worry I will send them this next week! 

So this week was super duper great! We have been working with Luan for 3 weeks now, he is 16 years old and his parents are atheist and didn't want to let him get baptized but on Saturday he called us and told us that his parents would let him so we went and his mom signed the permission slip and Saturday night he was baptized! It was super special. All of our other recent converts that have been helping him went as well and they shared their testimonies and it was super cool! On Sunday we had stake conference and it was super far away and they all went alone!!! They were also all using a white shirt and tie! It makes me so happy to see how God moves the life of others!

Also there is a Haitian that has been going to church and being taught for a long time and he was baptized on Sunday after the conference with 9 other people from other wards in our zone!!! He is super cool. he was able to understand how repentance works and finally accepted it in his life!

I am getting nervous because I feel like my mission is running out and I haven´t done everything I need yet! 

Remember every member should be a missionary, if we all did that in little time the church would double in number of members that will be saved and have a chance for exaltation!

tudo acontece na missão

This last week ROCKED! 

We have been working with this family that has a couple members that aren't baptized since we got here and this last week one of the daughters were baptized! In this family her dad was raised in the church but then stopped going but never stopped believing in the church. Their kids asked about the church and he stopped the missionaries this last transfer. This week we will go to the cartorio to mark the marriage of the mom and dad of this family!!! I am super excited. They are the coolest people in this ward!
batismo de Mirella!

This last week the bishops wife invited us to her house because she teaches an English class and we did an American night! I made American pancakes and then talked a little in English but it was a little embarrassing because my English isn't very good anymore. It was super good and the bishop's wife is super great! She had already talked about the Church to her students, so they asked a bunch about the church and they told us to go to their houses to teach them a little more!  

We are teaching this Haitian guy that is super cool! He is teaching me French and I am teaching him about the gospel! He has been going to church for a super long time but he doesn't feel worthy to be baptized because he has a wife in Haiti and kissed a girl here in Brazil. They are such honest people! We are trying to help him to feel repented so that he can receive the fullness of the gospel being baptized!

We are also teaching a teenager named Luan that is super cool! He wants to be baptized so bad but his parents don´t want to let him. He is 16 years old and his parents are atheist so they don´t want to let him be baptized but we are working on them, but it is hard because they usually don´t every want to even talk to us! It will all work out though, he said he will keep on going to church without being baptized and just get baptized when he is 18 years old, we want to help him faster then that though.

We have a pool table at our house and today we played a bunch it was pretty fun! 

well that´s all I have for this week love you all!

It´s hard to think of a good subject for my email...

our zone rocks!!!
Yeah! This last week was awesome!!! 

Our zone, here in Barueri, decided that we should do a huge baptism together and it worked! This week was super crazy though we were running all over the place doing interviews!!! 
We had one person that wasn't able to make it on Saturday to the baptism so he was baptized on Sunday morning. His name is Jefferson, he always went to church in jeans and a t-shirt but after his baptism he went to conference with a white shirt and tie!!! It is amazing how the small and simple things change people so fast! 
This area is super cool. The members have had a lot of problems with past missionaries so it is a little hard to have their trust but we are gaining it slowly and they are starting to help us a lot more. The bishop here is super cool, he is quiet but you can tell he just likes to be included which hasn't happened for a while. We are working a bunch with the recent converts and they are passing a ton of referrals! 
We made a huge friendship with our house owner and because of that he and his wife came and cleaned our entire house!!! I have never seen such a clean house in my whole life!!! I love him, he also made us dinner the other day. He is the coolest guy ever, we found out that he is a less active member which surprised us a bunch. We will re-activate him. He said he hated the other elders that passed before us and he didn't even talk to them. 

It is going super great with my comp, I like him a lot! It feels like this transfer passed super fast the last day is dia 26! 

Well love you all and try and find someone good that isn't a member yet to pass on to the missionaries!
