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

Greetings Brasil, We Have NEWS
This week has been a struggle to relearn the principle of love and
charity. That has been an ugly little struggle this last while, however I have
managed to reapply the feelings and that has helped a lot.
I have remained here for quite a while and it'll be likely in the
next...4 weeks to be on my way to a new location. But as I'm still working
here: We have 2 dates marked for a baptism, however, one has some relationship
and personal issues to work out. We are hunting investigators that have
potential to be baptized soon! We have this wonderful family that are
less-actives (That would be, 2 actives, one more or less, one that is in a
state of rebellion, and the other isn't baptized yet). Playing cards with them
is entertaining while we talk about what we can do to help the others get to
church. And then we have the age-old investigators that are... dealing with
issues. Hopefully this will be changing here soon.
As for stories of the week, we had a lot of sun, I'm dark for the first
time in my life. MEANING that it's going to be an absolute pain to go back to
the same color. And I got burned... a lot. Then in the last 3 days RAIN!!! Hallelujah!
So the stories are these: we went to the house of one of our investigators and
found the sleeping kitties in the photos below. They aren't the same in race or
parents so the fact that they are putting up with each other is quite nice. The
one thing that we got a kick out of was what happened when they were fighting.
The grey one, despite being smaller beats on the black one and he just gets
grumpy and then he gets beat more. The grey one only practices with him.
