Week 79: Slump Day

Hey everybody!

So, its been a pretty good week for me, albeit kinda crazy busy. Weve been on a week-long divisions with the Assistants to President Farnes, Elder Marchant and Elder Dallto. They spent a couple days with us, and a couple days with other areas, but all in all, it went really well! And we're really getting some good success here! Here are some of our top investigators:

Alessandra: Shes back! We finally got ahold of Alessandra, and she's still doing really well! We immediately went to see where she was, and shes still fixing her life to get baptized. She said that she still wants this in her life, and she accepted to be baptized this Saturday! So, weve just gotta get her interviewed again, and she'll be baptized!!!

Daniel, Jeferson, Mariana: They went to our integration night on Thursday, and then they went to church on Sunday. Daniel is actually loving church, and we think that Daniel will want to be baptized with his grandkids this Sunday. So, we'll see what we can do to help.

Alex (new!): A new kid that we found, that is GOLDEN. Hes single, 25, and understands everything that we teach him, and is absorbing it up like a sponge. He asked us to come by this morning, so I literally just got out of a lesson with him, where he agreed to prepare to be baptized this Sunday!!! He is super awesome, and we have good hope for him, and for the others!

Other notes:

Yes, it was Valentines Day this week. But, Brazilians celebrate Valentines Day in June. I suppose its too hot during February to have a Valentines Day cuddle, so they put it to their winter. Smart move, Brazil.

But, it is Carnaval! They have celebrations here in Itú (very sinful celebrations) but luckily they happen during the night, so we dont have to see them or anything. Dont worry, Im safe and protected from wickedness here ;)

And what is Slump Day? It means I have officially reached 1 year and 6 months on my mission!! Its so weird to think that my mission is almost over (in 149 days), but dont worry, Im still firm and strong!!

And, Im gonna go to the temple in Campinas this week! So actually, today isnt my official P-Day, Im just allowed to send emails. So, Ill keep on sending emails! Thanks for your love and support! Have a great week!
