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

Waterless, Baptisms, And ... Brasil
Well, transfer scare passed. We're staying! WOOOOOHHOOOOOO!
But we got combined with the other Oswaldo Cruz area, which is about the same
size as the area we are already working. So we will be walking a lot this month
and a half. We also are hoping for some fixes that will make this month more ...
This week we had the baptism of Valéria; it was super
special. She was the first I saw that came up from the water crying like she
did. I wanted to hug her, but let's be reasonable: Bishop, Elder Rosado, and
two other returned missionaries wouldn't report that to the mission president?
Não pode! [Cannot!] We felt the Spirit and she did, too, so it is good that we
stayed so we can explain all the new feelings to her. The other thing is that
she already made friends with a returned missionary couple. So she'll be firm
even in our departure.
The other thing is a sad thing really. WE HAVE NO WATER IN
THE HOUSE FOR 4 DAYS! We have been running to the other missionaries to help
us, resolve needs, take showers, etc. That has been a pain but we'll live it
out. We paid our taxes, but we got cut on the last day. So we'll get back into
the system today we hope.
But that's all the time we have for this week! Until next
