Week 79 - Fogo

Hello gente,

This week was pretty chill. Nothing too exciting like last week's wedding!

Elder Omar's hair was getting pretty long this week, so I offered to cut it. He said alright and when I started he asked, "have you ever cut someone's hair?" And I responded "no..but I have seen hair being cut like a thousand times already so it can't be too hard." He got a little bit nervous, but it turned out great!  I only cut my finger a little bit.  I think I am going to start cutting missionaries' hair for $5 reais (about $1.50). JK

Week 78 - Casamento E Batismo De Cleverson E Rute

Hello everyone!

This week was jammed packed! Cleverson and Rute got married and baptized!! We are super stoked. The marriage went super well. It was at the church and there was a red carpet and a three level cake and lots of salgados. What was also cool is that there were many non-member friends and family there, and so it was a great opportunity for them to visit the church in a more relaxed way. Bishop Percilio bore testimony of marriage and the restoration of the gospel.

Week 77 - Batismo de Jó

Minha gente,

Yesterday we had the baptism of Jó. It went super great. We reactivated his mom and brother and we are still working on his dad. But he is 11 and still hadn´t been baptized. They were so happy to see the baptism and I could tell that Jó's dad felt the desire to return stronger in the church.

Week 76 - Transferências

 Hey all,

Today we had transfers! Surprisingly, Elder Villamar was transferred to Camaragibe for his last transfer. I thought that I was going to be his last companion. He was sad to leave the area, but he knows that something or someone needs him there in his last area of the mission. These past two transfers with him have been so great. Our companionship relationship was super strong and we got super close. I learned so much from him.
