Well, this was actually kind of a tough, but good week at the same time. Once again, the difficult part is remembering what we did.
We went on a division with the members for the first time in a long time. It was actually really good too. Just two hours, but both groups taught, and found someone new to teach, we were needing that little boost in our area. Elder de Almeida, contacted a family we had talked to on the street. Only teenage kids were home, but one started crying during the lessons and said they she was feeling so good inside ( uh The Spirit :) ) She showed the Book of Mormon to her parents and they said they wanted to read it too, and her brother has lots of questions about The Plan of Salvation, what a blessing! Also, one of our district Leaders accidently wandered into our area (he is new there, and didn´t know the boundery and his comp is a green american) so they ended up teaching a couple and commited them both to be baptized for us : )
Iago is doing good. It is just slow, because we can almost never meet with his mom that needs to know a little more about the church and be more involved so he can be baptized. He really wants to and is a great kid, a real example. He drink lots and lots of coffee so we are going to have to work with him on that, but he spends a lot of time in his member friends house and so they will help support him I am sure.
Thursday I went back to Simões Lopes! Woohoo! I went with the District Leade, Elder Eduardo there our first lesson there we brought a member with us to teach, special thing was that this member is somebody i taught and invited to be baptized with Elder Palandi a year ago. Patricia. it was so special to see her again and see that she is well. I really liked being there with them too, I miss living in a house with four missionarys, it takes a little bit of the stress off at the end of the day and no mattter how much you love your companion, having the same guy in our face for 24 hours a day even when you go home can be tough on anybody, having four in a house works to shake it up a bit.
It was fun to eat lunch with a really dear family from the ward too, and to relive some memories. I love being in Pelotas again.
Friday and saturday were rough. Just knocing on doors... aaaallll day, nobody wanted to hear us. We are working with the members to try and find some people to teach as well.
Luis Fernando is going strong at church, he could easily be baptized at any moment. We talked to him about tithing, chastity, keeping The Sabbath day holy, at at once, because he already understands and keeps them, it was basically a formality and to clear up any questions he might have, I just wish we could teach him more than just once a week.
Our zone is getting better little by little, almost unoticable progress every week, but summed up it is easy to see the difference, but itis still very far from where we want to be. We need to cultivate a spirit of success and unity in our zone, and work work and more work. December is looking very very promising. We are doing what we call.. Natal Branco (White Christmas), one day for ALL of decembers baptisms (thus the white part) a giant baptismal service, I am excited:)
Okay, that´s all for me folks. Man I was REALLY expecting a new Nephew or Neice this week, now I am gonna have to wait a whole nother week. Good luck, Prayin for ya.
