Cidade do Sol: Week 5

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Deybron, Nabila, and their son Bryan 
Deybron´s brother and family came to see the baptism. They have been members for 4 years and are in another ward.

This is what a coconut looks like when it´s open. First you poke a hole in it to drink the coconut water and then you open it to eat the white meat.
Hey family! How were all of your weeks? Mine was pretty great. Everything ended up going perfectly with the baptism on Saturday. I´m writing later today because we went into the city earlier today with Deybron, the one who was baptized. We went there to buy some things and print some pictures. He gave us a ride there because he works near there, and he also showed us the store that he works in.

The cidade do sol (sun city) ward is doing great right now. The bishop was released on Sunday after being bishop for 6 years and another younger guy from the ward was called. There was a great sacrament meeting attendance on Sunday: 125! Several people had to stand in the back, but that´s just because the chapel is fairly small. After church we had a ward council meeting where the stake presidency showed us plans to divide the stake. Right now our ward includes 2 cities, and there are 3 sets of missionaries. One of the cities, Extremoz, is new and the church is just starting there, so there is a lot of growth potential. That city has a set of missionaries and will soon start meeting as a group on sundays. I´m excited for the growth potential that this area has and for the goals that the stake presidency has set. In order to achieve these goals we need to keep a high attendance rate.

The work is going well and we have a transfer coming up pretty soon. I´m almost sure I´ll stay and get a new companion, because Elder Wilson already has lots of time here.

Have a great week!
