Dear Family and Friends,
It was a week of serious hard work. We walked a ton, talked with so many people, fasted, and prayed to see the miracles that were waiting for us. A few we were privileged to witness and a few others we are still waiting. Patience is a virtue ;)
It was wonderful walking to church yesterday with Caio (kyle) and to see the excitement on his face. He is making so many changes and really letting the gospel change his life. He has so many goals and dreams, and as he learns more about this perfect gospel, he is witnessing just how perfectly the gospel fits into his future goals. It has really strengthened my testimony watching him progress in the gospel. It was also wonderful seeing Jamili enter the church yesterday with a huge smile on her face. She is studying and learning, asking questions and even shared her conversion story with Caio. The spirit was incredible watching one recent convert teach an investigator and share the joy that this gospel brings.
I know that our savior lives. He loves each of us and yearns to see us doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord. Our goal is to return to live with him for eternity.
I love this work!! Have a wonderful week :)

- when you celebrate your birthday here, you eat and eat and eat and eat and they invite the entire family and blast music etc.
- it is hard to think of cultural things because I am used to the culture now... everything is normal....
