July 10, 2017 “Baillão”
OK! So I will take some time to write a group email.
This week was crazy good–we are preparing 4 people to be baptized! Some of them might take more time, but others are SET!
IdêMarie–she´s gonna be baptized this week! And actually, it won´t count as our mission´s baptism. It´s the ward´s baptism. But, Marie is 8 years old and her family was less-active until now. They´ve decided to come back to church! So the bishop asked us to help prepare her and teach her to be baptized. She´s such a sweetheart. I´ve loved teaching her!
Mauro–so he´s kind of strange… On the way back from a district meeting, I started talking to him on the bus and gave him a Book of Mormon. We agreed to listen to our message and we got his address. But when we went to his house, he lives alone, so we couldn´t enter his house. So we taught him outside. And he even read the Book of Mormon and accepted a baptism date and went to church the next day (last suday)!! So elect right?? Except that…he kind of has a crush on the American sister. GAH. So lame. So when we followed up with him this last week, my new companion totally ROASTED him with our purpose and why we´re here and who we are, etc and we taught him about baptism and the plan of salvation and what it means to be baptised. So he got a little toasted. He didn´t go to church yesterday…but we´ll be following up with him this week!
Lucas and Isabelle– 20 and 17 couple. They´re crazy–like, parties and dancing crazy. But Lucas accepted a baptismal date! But then Satan invited him to a party saturday night and so the next day, they didn´t go to church.
But its all good! We´re finding lots of awesome investigators and working hard doing our best.
Also I talked to an old guy in the grocery store about the gospel and ended up being invited to a party to dance with him…and then go to his house… and it was very strange….crazy elderly brazilian men…
But the church is true and I love you all!
