Behold, the field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God - Doctrine & Covenants 6:3

From September 8, 2015
Alright, where did I leave off? Oh, right! This week was a
blast, just from the get-go it was hard. I'm battling the climate as the
weather is proving difficult on both my allergies and unfortunately that has
turned into a head cold. Don't say that mission life isn't tough some times.
Even when sick, I have to get out and teach. Or I'm being a slacker.
We had the privilege to switch companions on the last week
of transfers........ yay. So I have this week to work and
maybe I'll stick around to finish what I started in the next transfer. I'm
sorry that I don't have the time to respond this week to your personal
messages. I had to give a rather lengthy report to the president about my new
companion and what's going on here.
Fun story of the week! We were wandering (yes, that happens
here) and I felt the impression to return to a particular home we had visited
some 16 days before, to try to teach there. I was already programmed to go to a
less active members home to visit, but I kept feeling impressed. After the
second time, I couldn't ignore it, and we went to the home. A young lady (of
25, She’s already married, sorry amigos) came out; we introduced ourselves and
were let in. I was impressed that there was a family reunion taking place and
in that lesson alone we invited 6 to be baptized to which ALL accepted! Two
unfortunately live in another state of Brasil, but the other 3 are fair game.
The last one, we have trouble communicating with as he is half deaf. But, we
are having success and are happy.
