7 Month Mark!


Monica and Dandars's Baptism
What a week it has been. We have had to leave some investigators because they dont want to get married. Oh, the excuses are pathetic. One lady told us that she doesnt want to marry someone with drinking problems but has lived with this guy for 15 years now and has had 2 kids with him (adding to the 7 she has had with 3 different men). Brazil right? We found a kid who is really looking to change though. Maxwell is 17, already and ex-con, smokes, and has a spirit of a 2 year old girl named Trovada (thundered in english) that talks to him. This. Place. Is. Nuts. 

But the work is progressing... slowly. The lack of effort from everyone is kind of astonishing. But that is just the way things go sometimes... 

We have had to help the sisters in our zone a ton this week so teaching has not been a frequent activity. Between interviews, blessings of comfort and health, playing psychiatrist, and other things, it is a miracle we got as much teaching done as we did.  

The world cup starts in 2 weeks and this place is getting crazy. Painted sidewalks, houses, churches, everything is green and yellow. It is going to be crazy and President still hasnt told us anything about what we can and cannot do. The suspense!

Thats really all the news I have for this week. Just crazy people and minor speed bumps. LIFE :)

Helped the father quit smoking, Reactivated the Father, He married the Mother, Received the Priesthood, then baptized the two most important girls in his life = one of the happiest days of my misison

Cam - emailll

Lexi - I am glad that you liked the pictures! I will try to take more and send them often! I hope you know that the kids here love your bracelets! They have never seen them before so needless to say, I have no more left to give! Thank you for all the hard work and best of luck at your recital :D

Austin - arrependa-se.

Have a good week errybudy
