From: San Fransisco, California
Well another week came and went in Itaporanga. It was alright. We´ve been working with a girl named Lú and she´s hecka cool and we´re gonna try and baptize her next week. she´s a way excited person we still are just knocking doors all day, everyday. A family is going inactive so that´s one less lunch every week. we only have two times per week. We´re pretty broke and everyone says I look a lot skinnier when they see me, even though I still have a gut. lol but it´s going good.
(They should be eating at a members home one meal a day every day, but the ward is too small)
The old guy that we´re working with needs to get married before we can baptize him he´s cool I really wanna baptize him.
We had transfers and we both stayed here. The pics look cool from the St George trip. that's cool you met a Maceio missionary. I´m sure the elders are babied in the St George mission with good food and stuff. haha
That was nice of dad to get you a nice valentines gift! congrats on the star Bubba! just get your Eagle asap. Brian, that's funny that you asked out a girl with a girlfriend.... haha I bet that was awkward! I can just picture you. we laughed so hard at that story. you should definitely go to prom dude.
I´ll take a lot of pics this week, I haven´t really been taking a lot lately I need to do better.
We did find one other family, their hecka catholic and their baby died of dengue fever about a year ago, she had 16 months. we taught the plan of salvation and it was really powerful. the mom was crying. I dunno it was a really good lesson, but their gonna be tough to get baptized. We´ll keep passing by this week, they seem like really great people and were excited to work with them.
I dunno this area is pretty tough but I feel like theirs some people that we can work withe here.
well, I love you all be safe.
