Brasil, Food And Everything Falling
Hello family, friends and leaders!
This week I have been on a roller coaster of events and feelings. One such has been anxious. We have had a ton of running from one place to the other to try to find more people to teach. But we had a battle of finding people who could be taught in the hours that we had available! We made a lot of phone calls as well, as that's a part of our work.
This week we got to participate in a marriage in another ward. It was neat to watch two people make the promise of being loyal for all of this life; I just hope they make the next step and make it forever! I have been a little preoccupied with the people we are teaching here. One man, we got a date for him marked to be baptized on the 15th of October. We'll be working him hard, but we want him to do most of the work, as he's the one that should be making the decisions.
Alright, I'm exhausted from this week; we had a lot of getting up early, lack of sleep, and trips to the center that got us all wound up and wrung out. We now are looking at trying to find more people to teach. That's tricky, as in the area here isn't the biggest part of the city, so almost everyone has already seen the missionaries at some point or other. That's the tough part for us, but we'll get it.
