So all went well with Isaias and Da Paz they will get married on the 12th and be baptised on the 13th! they went to stake conference on Sunday and loved it! they are very happy and excited!
Joelma (mother of Ian who was baptised on the 2nd) also got married so that her baptism can happen, José her future husband is not very interested right now in church but i hope for him in the future. Joelma will also be baptised on the 13th. she is currently in Alma. haha last week we had a less active member at sacrament mtg. we asked some sisters from the ward to go sit with this less active.... everyone had an excuse for why they couldn't... so we asked Joelma, she quickly went right next to the woman and sat with her the whole time!
2 weeks ago we found a woman visiting from another city in Maranhão where the church does not exist. Her story is a miracle i wont be able to write about it but maybe i will record it and send it next week. anyway she will be baptised this week along with her son who is 8. her name is Elise and her son is Geovanni. i will be sure to send photos and the story next week.
We had a zone conference yesterday it was really good, we got to learn a lot from President. He told us of how we need to be good shepards and love those who we teach. We are not to teach in a lesson format any more but just like the church has changed the curriculum for the youth so that it's more of a conversation than a lecture we too are suppose to have conversations with our investigators... we tried to start yesterday and man it is so difficult to converse in a constructive way that alloweds ppl to still learn. it will be an awesome learning process. I and Elder King also had the opportunity to eat lunch with President, he told us that i will be staying for the next transfer and that Elder King will be leaving... I'm kinda sad because well Elder King has 6 months here and just now we are getting to the point where we will begin to baptise adn he will be here till the end of this week for the 4 baptisms but then he will be transfers. The lord has been blessing us this month like no other time on my mission; people this month finally have the desire to be baptised. It has truly been a month of miracles and it is only half over.
I love you all!
