Week 80 - Agosto

Hey all,

I cannot believe it is already August.

This week was another chill one. Our investigators are progressing a bunch. Rosângela and Zeca (josé) will be married this Saturday. They are super excited about it. Rosângela is helping us encounter new investigators and she seriously is a missionary.

Cleverson received the Aaronic Priesthood this past week.  He passed the sacrament and it was so cool to see. He is progressing a ton and the ward is giving him small responsibilities every chance they get. I know that he will be able to serve the Lord and the Church in so many ways!

We have an investigator and he is like so ready for baptism.  But he can’t get to church because if he goes to church and his dad finds out, his dad will get super mad at him and get physical. He has 18 years, so he is already an adult. But because he lives above his dad's house, there are issues.  It is really sad because he wants to be baptized and has already put aside lots of things.  We are trying to find a way to help him. 

This week we had a division with the elders in Moreno. I went to Moreno, which is a little bit more interior.  The division went super well and we focused on developing leadership skills. We talked a lot about loving others. I know that we need to show a lot more love for others. 

Next week we will probably have p-day on Saturday and will go to President's house.

We feed the monkeys almost daily. Not much else to report! Have a great week!
