Wow. This ward is great. I'm loving this área. This week we had some great experiences. We were doing contacts on the street and we met a man named Tiago. He is 29 and lives in Itapoã and works at the bank and studies. He lives with his parents and is desperately seeking spiritual and physical help. Well, we marked a day to visit him and then we went there. He said that He was needing a change in his life. When we went there, it was great we realized what we needed to do to help him have a better life. We told him that we could help him with his addictions through the gospel. We taught the first lesson and the spirit was so strong. To say the least it was powerful and a great lesson as we bore testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel and how we are representatives of the savior and have the power to help him become free from his addictions. He accepted a baptism date for the 27th. He's great. He went to church and his parents came with him! It was a great experience. Wow.
Also we have been teaching a young man named Peterson. He is 16 and is pretty quiet. He went to church and seemed to like it. He also accepted a baptismal date for the 27th. I pray that we can help these men realize the importance of the restoration so they can enter into the waters of baptism on the 27 of March. I know Heavenly Father is on our side and we just need to teach them and help them walk in the path of Christ.
This week was pretty crazy also. It dumped water here. It rained so hard that the streets were flooded like crazy!!! Next week I Will send fotos. It was insane. I'm exited for this week for we are going to have a great activity that were putting together. Its a scavenger hunt in the church using scriptures. We also started our English class this Thursday. It was great. I Love teaching.
Well this week is going to be great we will have training at the President's house. I Love going there. Its like the temple.
Well it sounds like everyone is doing well. How’s Elder Hadfield?
Muito obrigado por tudo! Com Amor,
