Well everybody. 

Things are well for us here. So far this is been a good area to finish my mission. The streets are filled with dust and sand and it is very hot but we're not close to the beach, so that's nice. 

The more we learn about the area and meet the members, the more help we are getting.  The members here are very excited about the work and give us a lot of people to teach.  Time is passing fast now and I hope we can find the people we need to find while I am still here on the mission. 

Can't believe how close my time is. Not much new this week. But this week we will travel to Feira de Santana.  We have a meeting and will travel all night to get there on buses. So hope it all goes well. 

Hope you all are doing good.Talk to you guys later.

Hey Everybody!!

Well, I got into my last area in the mission. It is around 9 hours from Salvador, and we traveled all night to get here. When we got in our area we found out everything was a mess. 

My companion, Elder Almeida, and I are opening this area. The last Elders that were here left the area a mess and they didn't leave any investorgators for us.  We are having a lot of the members telling us they didn't like them. It is basically like we are starting everything from zero. 

But things are already going well. This Sunday we were able to get 6 investorgators to church, including a family, and we were able to meet the members a little more. 

Things are going well and it will be a good area to finish my mission in because there is a lot of work to do! Time is getting close! Talk to you guys later.

Hey Everybody,
Well this week was kinda hard for us here. We had a baptism marked and it fell through at the last minute.   So we were sad about that. 

Found out that for my last six weeks I will be returning to Petrolina! I will be in a different area and will be Zone Leader now. Sad that I am leaving here but cool to try new things. 

My new companion will be Elder Almeida and I already lived with him before.  He is really cool!!!

Well, I don't have much time today. I still have to finish packing my bags and will head to my new area.  

Got my plane tickets last week and I will be home August 26th. Time will pass very fast. Glad I still have six weeks to serve out Savior. Hope you guys are all doing well. 

Talk to you guys later.

Hey Everybody!!
Well this week has been a very good week!!!

First off, Rosa was baptized!!! How everything happened with her sure was a miracle. She has been searching for a church for 3 or 4 years. She said when she would walk in front of our church, she wouldn't even look at the church from all the lies she heard about it. 

But through a member she was invited and was able to visit our church and we started teaching her.  She received her answer very fast. Her brothers are pastors of different churches. When they found out she was getting baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ, they all told her she needs to rethink everything that she was thinking.  But because of the answer she received, she stayed strong and was able to get baptised and confirmed. 

Sure was a cool experience. We have been teaching English here and have started a new program called mini MTC and we are helping prepare the youth here for missions. I have another week in this transfer and think I will leave here and finish the last 6 weeks of my mission in another area. 

Also this week I received my paperwork for my flight home and release date. I can't believe it!!  I will arrive August 26th at 12:18pm. It will be a bitter sweet day.

But that's about it for the week. Hope all is well with you guys, talk to you guys later.
Com Amor´,
