Week 67 - Camaragibe

Dear Family and Friends,

Everything is going great here in Brazil. We have had a really good week. Yes the baptisms are still on for Mother’s Day. They are super excited. D is always telling us how she is tired of being a visitor and is ready to be a member! haha She is so funny. I think she is the most mature and serious 11 year ever. Yesterday in testimony meeting Sv and Sl shared their testimonies!! It was a proud moment as a missionary :) Sv talked about how grateful he is to know that God lives. And Sl was sooo nervous I thought she was going to pass out!! At the end she said "this prayer".  And then D who was sitting with us said very loudly "prayer?!!! Nooooooo!!! It’s a testimony!!!" hahaha It was so funny.

We are teaching an awesome guy named R! He was a reference from a member that lives in a different ward, but we were never able to get ahold of him and he lives in a part of our area that we’ve never been too--it’s like a 45 minute bus ride away. But finally we were able to talk to him and he is awesome!! He has been trying to get in contact for a while now and was super excited to start meeting with us. He watched General Conference last October with his friend and loved it. And then watched it again in April on the internet in his house. So he has been super curious and interested for a while now. But yesterday he came to church and we were able to talk to him for a while afterwards and answer some of his questions. We are excited about him!

This week we did a comp exchange. I went to a different area called V├írzia. It’s cool getting to know different areas, members, investigators and work with other people. I love it! Oh and also this week Elder Whitney L Clayton and his wife came to Recife! We had a mission conference with them and it was awesome. They are perfect and I learned so much. I really liked especially Sister Clayton. She was like an angel! I want to be as sweet as she is.

Thank you so much for your emails and the pics! Love you guys! Talk to you soon!!!!
