Feliz dia das mães,

Well it was another good, full week in Divinópolis. The weather was nice too and that's been lifting our spirits. It was fun to skype with the family yesterday and to see that everyone was still alive and happy. We did skype at our ward mission leader's house and he was very happy 

We had a few investigators at church on Sunday but unfortunately no one had a set baptismal date. We have been teaching Marithissa this week who is a member's cousin. She was supposed to be baptized this week but she was sick on Sunday and wasn't able to make it to church so we had to postpone the baptism. But she is a really cool young woman. Her cousin, Paula, is the young womens president and has been trying to help her become a part of the church. Marithissa turned 15 this week and we threw a surprise birthday party/family night at Paula's house for her. It went really well and she seems to be really enjoying the young women's program! We will be visiting her this week.

Church was really cool yesterday because Bruna and Agda both recieved callings from the ward! Bruna is the Relief Society Secretary and Agda is the Young Womens Secretary now. They were both super excited(:

Yesterday was transfers and it looks like our district is staying the same. I am excited to finsish Elder Dedeco's training and work for another transfer here! This week we are gonna work our tails off to find a good teaching pool for the transfer.

We also did an exchange in a nearby city called Nova Serrana. There is a branch there with about 20 members that go to church. It was good to have a fresh perspective on missionary work as I worked with our District Leader. 

I don't have a whole lot of news other than that! I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for all the support and prayers! I love you guys!!
