Lots of Baptisms!

Hey hey hey!

This past week was so great! We had a little trouble the past few weeks, but the ball is rolling. We baptized José Carlos on Saturday, and that was an awesome experience. 

This guy needed to be baptized. He has such a great family and they are going to be so great in the Church and I love their family so much.

Then we baptized Matheus this past Sunday (the 24th). He is 13 and we brought him to Church last week. But the great thing about it was that we were only expecting Matheus to come, but then his dad came too. 

The ward absolutely loves this family and if you guys knew them, you would love them too. The Mom, Katia, has been studying with the Testemunhos de Jeova, so it's not the easiest, but she came to Church to see her son be baptized and she had a great experience. During the baptism you could feel the Spirit so strong and now the Dad, Luiz, and the Mom, Katia, want to be baptized too. All they have to do is keep the Palavra de Sabedoria.

We also had this other family in Church. They're a young family with a 2 year old daughter, Vitoria. They are Janí and Fabio. They are great! Janí is also 8 months pregnant, so we had to arrange for a car.  Last week, we did this and they couldn't go because she wasn't feeling too good, but this week we went there and they were already outside waiting for us. They said that they had a great experience in Church and "felt something that they had never felt before."

The sad part is that today (monday the 25th) is the end of this transfer and I have already been in this area for a while so I have a good chance of being transferred, but i don't want to go yet! There is still so much I can do! So we'll see if I have to leave this area for another tonight. 

I miss and love you guys so much!
