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!

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!
