HEAT and Miracles

This week was hot. Like super duper duper hot. Everyone says that this isn't too normal because usually around this time of the year things are cooling off. Whatever though! The sun doesn't kill(well only sometimes). hahahah

This week we were able to teach A TON.  It was great. Teaching is the best part of the mission. I absolutely love it. Its interesting because the rest of the things that missionary do are only their to help us teach better and more people. 

This week we had a amazing miracle with lucas. We've been teaching him for about well... 2 days. He's 20 years old and is looking for peace in life. What better place to find it than the missionares? hahah 

Anyways, the second time we met with him, we marked a day for him to be baptized. The day we marked was the Sunday after church. Push comes to shove, it didn't work out, but He is totally ready, already has a testimony of everything. He'll be baptized this upcoming Saturday. Seriously one of the  most prepared people I've ever met. 

The other families that we are teaching are going great! We found a new family, Israel and Lourdes. A Family super awesome. They already are reading the book of Mormon and are one track for baptism. The only problem is marriage, but that is just a small problem. 

Carlos and villegena are going great. We marked a day for them to get married in the state office. Just need to keep waiting that dang 20 day for paper work. It's pretty annoying sometimes. whatever though. 

Things are good. To day is transfers...  No news here. I'll be staying in the same area with the same companion. Its good though. I'm liking it here, The ward is super nice and supportive and they love to help us out. 

Anyways, that pretty much all I have. 
Love you all,

eeeeehhhh oooohhh,

Hey everybody! I hope you all had a fantastic week because I sure did!!

This week we worked hard. Like sure duper hard. Thats good though, we don't have any other option than to work hard.

We had two mircales this week
one: WE HAD 9 people in sacament meeting. WOOT WOOT! This is crazy because saturday night we only had 3 people confirmed, but when we showed up for church there were tons of our investigators there. All I can say is fasting is super powerful. we decided to hold a fast saturday for our investigators and bam. Its was awesome. truth be told, we brought more people to church that any other companionship in our zone. WOOT WOOT

The second mircale is that we found a super duper awesome investigator  that is going to be baptised on the 22 second. Lucas is a 20 years old and is trying to find a place where he can feel gods love. He so freaking prepared its not even funny. We taught him the first lesson today and he already is excited to be baptised. Looks like all our hard work this month is paying off. 

The rest of the week was good. Bishop has called a new ward mission leader and we are super pumped for that. He's like a super good friend with all the missionary, RM and super excited to help us out. I'm super excited to see what happens. 

Things are good, Its been raining alot... Its kinda in the phase of hot as heck and raining all the time again. its not the greatest weather to be working in but, its what we have. 

I hope everyone has a fantastic week! Love you all, 

PS, Transfers are next week. We'll see what happens, but I think I'm going to be staying

 This week was kinda disapointing, but we got over it.

Its been general Conference, which was awesome! Its kinda like Christmas for missionary. Two days to kinda take a break and rea charge those spiritual batteries.  I really like hollands talk at the end. We listened to conference at the stake center. They have satélite there. It really made me happy.

Elder Pinheiro is doing great! We've started a new program in the mission where the new missionary slowly take over everything.  By  the end of the 2 transfer, they are doing everything. Its a little bit diferente than the 12 week program, but kinda the same thing.

Its starting to get a llittle cold over here. Right as the temp is warming up in utah, its starting to get cold. Its good though, Final, I've been able to sleep through the night. Hahaha.

This past week I've been thinking alot about all the awesome member there are here in brasil. For example, I don't think I've every gone 3 day without an offer to eat dinner with a Family here, member or non member. Sometimes, we will show up to appointments, and our investigators will already have lunch or dinner made for us. Its crazy!! I've learned that it doesn't matter where we are in the world, there is  always somebody that will help you.


Love you all!
