Happy Pday folks!
This week was a blast! Both companionships in the district were able to baptize and it was a really good experience! We missionaries sang a special hymn during the meeting where we sang in both English and Portuguese "Come thou fount of every Blessing." It was a great meeting!
I am so proud of Erica and her decision to be baptized despite all of the opposition she has to overcome. It was also a privilege to interviw Gentil and watch him being converted to the gospel. They are both people who took a good time to investigate the church and are very converted. Erica will probably finish the Book of Mormon soon! And they are both excited to get their endownment in a year from now.
I've been working on memorizing the Sermon on the Mount this week. I'm about 7 verses in and it's proving to be a little harder than I thought haha! But I'm learning a ton and it's good to have the words always running through my head.
Other than that, we had a good week of teaching. Unfortunately, many of our investigators bailed on usand only a few came to church. But this week we have a good plan to fix that.
Sorry I'm short this week! I'm short on time. I love you guys!!!
