March 25, 2013

Hello family! So this week was so sick!!! First off the baptisms went perfect! It was such a spiritual experience, Isaiah and Da Paz went also another investigator Liborio who has been going to church for like 3 months but won’t accept a date yet. It was so awesome.

Giovanni (the kid) is so small and the font was so full he had to swim out to elder king when he entered the water to get baptized. his Mom (Elisa) was so happy and at peace after her baptism, in her closing prayers after leaving a message she always included "please lord let me continue on this path until I and my son have entered your kingdom" such a spiritual experience for me to see how there are so many people just waiting to receive our message and are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it.

Saulo (the young Man) will get the priesthood this next week and then he will be able to bless the sacrament and also Baptize... we will teach his mother some more and maybe he will have the chance to baptize her!

Dom-Dom who was baptized at the beginning of the month got the priesthood yesterday and he showed up in a white shirt and tie it was a great feeling to see him. Also Ian who was baptized in the beginning of March showed up in a white shirt and tie, he is excited to turn 12 and help with the sacrament too.

So Sunday another merical happened we were walking to lunch (we meet in the afternoon) and we got a call from the elders who use the same building as us just in the morning and they said that there was a man there who lives in our area, so we went and got his address and everything, he was baptized in 07´way in Manaus he has been inactive for 3 years but felt the need to come back to church... oh yeah he also brought his girlfriend... who wants to be baptized! haha sweet!! we visited them last night and they spoke of marriage we will get all the details worked out but that will be another family for the ward! the lord is blessing us so much here.

So info about the transfers I will stay here my new comp is Elder Petersen he also studied at BYU and is only one group behind me (which means he only has 6 less weeks then me in the mission) it’s going to be his first time as a zone leader. But I’m super excited to work with him, sadly Elder King is going to Teresina but I will still see him at meetings and everything.

well that’s pretty much my week. I love you guys! miss you all!!

-Elder Howe
