This week went way better! We were able to get more done even though we had our Mission Counsel meeting on Wednesday all day. In spite of that, we were able to do a little bit more work wise than last week! So that was really nice! On Thursday we had a division with some of the young men here in the ward! My comp went with Wanderson and Paulo, and I went with Adria! It was great to visit some people with them and be able to help them create the missionary spirit within them! We were able to visit quite a few people that day. Then the other days we were able to work pretty well with visiting people. This Sunday was our ward conference. There were a lot of people there here from the ward and quite a few from the whole stake. Most of the High Counselors and their wives were there and the whole Stake Presidency and their families. So we had a lot of people at church on Sunday, 159 to be exact. But a good chunk were from the stake. But still a really good attendance! The meeting was well prepared and the classes and talks as well. We only had two investigators there, but better two than none! One that was there is the man we are helping prepare to be baptized in a couple of weeks. He is a very simple and humble man with very very little, if any, formal education and is very poor. He works selling water in the center of the city and sometimes that doesn't work out so well. So most of the stuff he has at his house is trash or things that other people give him. His couches his tables his clothes his shoes and pretty much everything he has has been given to him or he found on the street. But we are working with him to stop smoking and drinking coffee. So we'll see how his progress goes!

Glad to hear that all is well and that you are having a good trip! Hope you made it home safely and found everything okay! Now you'll have your hands full to get all the work done that needs done! But it's better to stay busy than to have nothing to do! Will be going to get my box pretty soon! Here in about an hour, I'll have opened it! Thank you so much!!!
Have a great week!!!

LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
