Week 27 - Batismo de Grace‏

Batismo de Grace

Hello all,

This week was awesome!! So Grace was baptized!!! Yesterday after sacrament meeting, the Relief Society had a special meeting for Grace.  We sang hymns and a member gave a spiritual thought. Afterwards, Grace was baptized and everything went well except I had a little trouble with the word "commissionado."  But it was special. Grace said it was a super emotional experience.

Week 26 - O Milagre e Trabalhando Homens‏

Trabalhando Homens

Hello Everyone!

This week Elder Roque and I had a miracle.  On Tuesday we went to see our progressing investigator Grace. We were planning on confirming a date for her baptism for this past Sunday. When we got there, she told us that she decided not to be baptized and that she didn’t want to go to church anymore. I was super sad. We talked with her awhile and I asked her to pray one more time to know if the church is true. She promised she would and then we left.

Week 25 - Tapioca

Hello all,

This week flew by once again, just like all the others.  Here are some highlights:

I tried tapioca for the first time.  It is not like American tapioca (tried that too). It is more like a Brazilian taco type thing. It is difficult to explain. But it can be salty and have meat and cheese inside, or it can be sweet and have coconut and sugar. I got a meat one with calabresa. It was wayyy good.
