It rained a lot !!! Yay!
Bad quality picture ... but that's the English room at General Conference. yay!
Yup ... I just surprised you all, ha. BAPTISMO! (Alessandro and Family)
Alessandro at his baptism! YAY!
Another week passes, and this past week was an amazing General conference! Yay! That was pretty dang awesome. I love conference. We were able to watch all of the sessions, though we ended up watching the Priesthood session in Português. The age announcement about missionaries is super cool, and was completely unexpected. That will sure help the number of missionaries to increase. wow. The other Americans and I were really enjoying Elder Nelsons talk, and thinking, wow, I guess we are the solution for everything. Ha. Just Kidding. I loved all of the talks, and I really enjoyed the first session. Unfortunately, none of our pesquisadores could watch it, since it wasn't in our church building, but it was farther away. This weekend was the highlight of our week. Not only was it general conference, but we had a baptism. Alessandro is a young boy of 10 years of age, and his Mom is a less active member, but he has been going to church with his moms cousin. He has been wanting to be baptised for a while, and finally everything worked out. It was really exciting. He will be confirmed this coming Sunday. Other than these great events, its been the usual going around teaching and finding. Elder Reis was 6 years old when his family joined the church. And this is his fourth transfer as a zone leader. All is going good, and we are trying to do our part. I wanted to send home a scripture that's in Doctrine and Covenants 14:7. The greatest gift that we can achieve is Eternal life. God loves us, and according to our diligence, He will help us achieve this gift. We should all review the talks that our living prophets have said to us, and always look forward to the eternal rewards and blessings. I love you all, and hope that you all have a great week this week.
