Cidade do Sol: Week 4

Monday, February 16, 2015

I´m happy that we have been able to work with a lot of families. Deybron and Nabila are still doing well and they are ready for their baptism on Saturday. We went to their house earlier this week to teach the 5th and final lesson before baptism about temples, etc. Without us knowing, Deybron´s brother had loaned them a movie about the construction of the Salt Lake temple and they had watched it before. So they already had some questions! They are progressing really well and have been at church every Sunday since we met them. Every time we go over to their house they have dinner ready for us too which has been super nice and even made us feel a little bad. But Elder Wilson made some brownies for them this week from a brownie mix that we found in one of the supermarkets.

We are also working with a couple named Márcio and Jaqueline. They are both in their 40s. Jaqueline is a less active member and they are not married, just have been living together for a long time. We are working with them to get them married so Márcio can be baptized after. They both really have the desire, but are both pretty busy with work (including on Sundays). But they are really close.

Lots of people have gone out of town for carnival. The two big carnival cities in the state are Macau and Caicó, so there´s not much that happens here. I think the streets will be pretty empty these next few days. We were even a little lucky to get into this internet place because it will close soon.

One of the missionaries that lives with us was made secretary of the mission the other day, so there was a little transfer and now we have 3 americans in our house. The other American is from Beaver, Utah.

I´m doing well here and am liking this ward and area a lot! The sun is hot as always!

Love you and talk to you next week!
