A Sad Hello...


Um triste ola,
Bem, não sei exatamente o que dizer, mas, mais uma semana... Que brincadeira, passou rápido de mais!!!!!

Bem a semana foi boa, batizamos mais um, e foi muito especial. Temos mais dois para o sábado que vem, então vou chegar em casa com calças molhadas!! A obra do Senhor é uma grande bênção, nem sei se eu vou conseguir entrar no avião!!! Quero ficar aqui para sempre! Mas tudo tem o seu tempo, e meu tempo está chegando, então tenho que trabalhar atpe o pó e aproveitar cada momento!! Até mais!!

A sad hello,

Well, I don't know exactly how to say this, but, only one week left... what an illusion, it all went by so fast!!!!!

It was a good week, we baptized another person and it was really special. We have two more for this coming Saturday, so I'll be headed home with wet socks!! The Lord's work is such a great blessing, I don't even know how I'm going to be able to get on the plane!!! I want to stay here forever! But everyone has their time, and my time is coming, so I have to work even harder to take advantage of every minute!  See you later!!

Picture

Didn't post this picture from June.  This is Elder Trevisanut and Elder Twitchell (one of Victor's MTC companions who just arrived home yesterday).  They got to see each other before the mission was split and Elder Twitchell went to the Brazil Curitiba South mission.  One more week!

Craziest Week of All...20 baptisms!!

Oi tudo bem!
Well I thought I´d seen it all out here in the mission field, but this week has been the craziest of all since I´ve been out. Presidente Monteiro and the assistants came out here to Ponta Grossa for the whole week to work in the streets with all of us in the field. One of the assistants stayed with us the whole week and the other stayed with the the zone leaders of the other zone here in Ponta Grossa. It was crazy, we have just run around like crazy fnding new people to teach, presidente has been finding tons of people to baptize here in Ponta Grossa, and after the end of the week, we baptized 20 in the two zones here in Ponta Grossa, almost 30. It was crazy. To make it crazier, our chapel here in Ala 2 was the only one in our stake that had a water heater working, and coincidentally all of the baptisms from our zone got sick a day before their baptisms, and couldn´t get baptized in the cold water, which means... everyone had to go to the chapel in Ala 2, and I had to be in charge of everything!! It was crazy. We found about 20 new investigators this week, including a family of 9, so we´re hoping to see a few more miracles before I´m outta here.
 
The work´s going great! Oh yeah, and just make the week easier, at the end of a long day of tons of work, we finally got to go to sleep thinking that we would sleep like a log, and right when we started to sleep, we heard the alarm, ´´No! 6:30 already???´´ Nope. It was just the sisters, crying and telling us that one of the Sisters had a seizure and was getting rushed to the hospital, and guess who got to go help them and stay with them at the hospital? The zone leaders. Yeah, that´s us. So yeah, we got to stay at the hospital until 5:00 in the morning. Don´t worry, we got to sleep from 5:00 to 6:30, so it´s all good.   :P
 
All of the that and a few miracle fasts, and that was pretty much our week, it was a good one, we´re ready for one more!!
Até mais!!

We're Losing Our Beloved Son...


Oi tudo bem!
One more week down, it´s passing by so fast, it´s really sad to think about.

It´s been a good week, just work work work work. The normal. We got some sad news today. Turns out there was some problem in one of the areas in Curitiba, so president had to move around some missionaries, and unfortunately our area was one that had to be moved around. So we´re losing our beloved son, he´s going to still be in the zone, but he´ll be with another companion in a different area. After 2 weeks he already has a stepdad, haha. We´re pretty sad about it, but it happens.

Other than that, it was a great week, I´ll talk to you guys later!
