This week was amazing! Fernanda and Diogo were baptized and it was an amazing experience! They were a referal from a bishop in another ward of our stake. It was cool to teach them because we were able to teach with that bishop, our bishop, and some members of the stake presidency during the process.
Fernanda is a wedding dress maker and designer. She attends clients in her home and it was really interesting when she showed us the process. Diogo is her son, who is 9 years old. He is probably the smartest 9-year-old I have ever met. He retains knowledge really easily. He came to church yesterday with a white shirt and tie and told us that he wanted to be a missionary!
We also did two exchanges this week and for the first time I worked with a companion from Africa! He is from Cape Verde, which is a group of Islands between Africa and Brazil.
Uilquer and Genivaldo both passed the sacrament yesterday!! It was a really spiritual moment for me. They are great and progressing really well to receive the higher priesthood at the end of the month! :)
I love you guys!
