So, I've been doing pretty well. I said a lot of goodbyes yesterday and gave a talk, and taught the Gospel Principles class. It's kind of sad that I'm leaving right now because my comp and I have started to click with our lessons and they have been pretty good.
I gave a tie to an investigator
yesterday. I baptized his two sons a few months ago. The sad thing is
he is not progressing and he is on the verge of falling back into his
old life. When I talked to him yesterday he was with his new girlfriend
(bad news!!!) and I think he was a little drunk. You know, when people
just start to drink and they act just a little more talkative and are a
little more touchy. Yeah. I hope the tie will motivate him to keep learning
and go to church and especially help his sons have a better life.
taught a drug addict that works in the marketplace gutting fish (he is
really good with a knife).
We baptized Thiago, a grandson of a member
here, Irmão Antonio. I taught him how to baptize (he is a priest) but
he forgot during the baptism and Thiago ended up being baptized 5 time
until he got it right. It turned out well though.
I am so thankful for
your letters. Keep them coming. One letter to you all should get sent
today. I have been swamped with packing and stuff today but I will try
to write a letter or today.
I will be transfered to the Cuidade Nova
Zone and my new comp will be Elder S. I think the area is close to Belem and has a very large chapel (big switch!).
I'll try to send pics
next week. I love you all and hope that the Hawaii trip turns out
great! If you could set up a skype account and info, I can talk to you
all with skype on Mother's Day, but I'll see what happens in the
