Hello people of the states!

This week was definitely the most interesting and probably the best week of my mission so far. The city of Divinópolis and the ward here are really growing on me. The members are amazing and the work is good. I could see the hand of the Lord in frequently as we worked this week!

Last Sunday we set up something really neat where we marked with the members to teach with us during every afternoon and night of the week. It turned out to be really successful! We get a lot done when we have a car. Plus our investigators are getting to know lots of members as we teach with them. We only had one complication- on Saturday we used this van that our bishop lends to our mission leader and Elder Otavio got locked in the back for a good hour because the handle broke on the inside. It was kind of funny haha! I'll send a picture.

Some exciting things are about to happen(: Wellington and Bruna are the most golden investigators that I've evr had and they are progressing so well. We have already started teaching Wellington's sister who is currently in doubt at her church. Every day we teach them they tell us about how Heavenly Father is answering their prayers and how their marriage is getting better because of the scripture study they're doing together! I was able to teach them many commandments this week and it was amazing to see how easily they accepted everything. I'm so so excited for them!!

Rangel and Rimunda made it to church yesterday too! We are helping Rimunda quit smoking and drinking coffee. It's proving to be pretty difficult, but the good thing is that she has a testimony of the church already! Rangel is progressing really well.

I don't remember if I already talked about Diana, but she is also progressing as an investigator. She has been coming to church for 2 years and has a testimony so so strong and is living all the commandments. The problem was, she wasn't married. She separated from her boyfriend though and wants to be baptized! It has been good to work with her these past couple weeks.

I'm excited for the weeks to come and for our Zone Conference we will have tomorrow! We will wake up at 3am to walk to the big bus station tomorrow morning so that should be fun. Thank you for all the love and support and prayers!
