Last letter

Well today will be the last letter that I will be writing home. I know I still have a lot of time but next Monday because of the distance of my area I will have to get a bus the whole day and the next Monday I will be on a plane so this is probably my last letter that I write unless next Monday I send email super early! crazy!

This Last week was great

Well hoped you liked my last email I really thought a lot about it to make it a good one.

have a great next 2 weeks!

We went hiking today!

Here is another picture from last week's baptism

It happened!

Yeah it finally happened! Our investigator Jucelio was baptized! He is one of those people that you look at and just know that he will stay firm! He is super cool, the church that he and his family came from has a rule that they can't visit other churches but he is telling his whole family to go and visit the church with him! The majority of them wouldn't because of their church but he was able to bring his mom and his brother! I am so happy that he finally was able to be baptized!

Other then him we are still working with that family. The mom, Patricia, is so great, she said that she now knows she needs to be baptized again and she is 100% ok with it! I am a little sad because I probably won't be able to see the baptism though because they need to get married first and marriage here in Brazil takes 30 days!!! UGH Her daughter Julia on other hand will be baptized or this or the next week. There are a lot of clicks in the ward and because of that she doesn't feel very comfortable but instead of complaining she just invited more of her friends to go with her to not be alone! What a great way to resolve that problem!

We have an investigator that is named Ingrid that her parents are pastors so that is CRAZY! She has a super firm testimony though. She will be baptized on the 23rd, we did her interview this morning and she passed just fine!

That's all I have for now. Have a great week! #sonobaptize!

This week was very amazing!

This week was very amazing! 

We have been working a lot with a family of 5 people this last week that are just so great! We first taught them on teusday and the mom of the family, Patricia has already read the whole Book of Mormon!!! The only problem is that she and her husband need to get married. They all went to church alone this last Sunday we didn't even have to go pick them up, they even got there early! They are super elect! 

Hey so funny story, I have had an ingrown toenail for a while now and have been post poning taking it out because it hurts a lot to take it out! A member of our ward heard about that and every day this last week she has been trying to catch me to take it out for me but I would always avoid it. She is smarter then I am though. At church she said to me, today is the day. Don't get me wrong I wanted her to take it out but I just wasn't excited for the pain. She brought all the equipment to church so I couldn't run away anymore. After much sweating of pain she took it out and now it feels a lot better!

So I am a little freaking out because my plane ticket was bought! My companion tells me that I am the less trunky Elder that he has seen so that is good. I am nervous to start real life but also super excited!

Well sorry I don't have much to say. I am guessing that the next few weeks I am going to write really small letters....
