Good morning gente!

This week was quite the experience. Lots of miracles happened in our area and I was really able to see the hand of the Lord.

We did an exchange with the other Elders and that was good. I was with Elder Bishop and we were able to teach and practice a lot together.

Erica is coming along really well. We will hold a family home evening with her in our Branch President's house tonight to help her get to know more members. She told us that she wants to be baptized on September 3rd! In our plans we would have tried to baptize her a little bit sooner, but it's all good. Also, an investigator of the other Elders in my District also accepted to be baptized on this date so it should be a really good day!

It is starting to get really hot here and I'm actually getting a little tan.

Our English Course begins to grow and now Elder Bishop is teaching an advanced class while I am teaching the beginners. It has been a really fun experience teaching English. And we might have to open a third class as well and have a Brazilian Elder who knows a little English teach the beginners. We are starting to get official and tomorrow we will have everyone fill out an enrollment form.

The members of our branch here left for the temple yesterday! They are going by bus and will return on Saturday. It takes 19 hours by bus for them to travel there.

Well I'm probably forgetting a bunch of stuff, but that's what I remember from this week. I love you guys and hope everyone has a great week!
