Thanks for all the pictures! That's exciting about Tommy's baby! And that's awesome that Alabama won!
So this week was good. We have a lot of good investigators we are working with. I told yall about the elect family we found the other week. They came to church on Sunday and said it was "strange but interesting"... Haha. But they said they liked it.
I also told yall about the couple with the baby who the missionaries have been teaching for 8 months. They have just been waiting on her to turn 16 so they can marry and get baptized. Then they said they didn't want to marry anymore because they had a big fight then they changed their minds and signed all the papers and we sent them to Belém. I already told yall about that miracle. But since then they changed their minds again. It is very frustrating because a lot of people in the ward are helping them and they won't make up their minds.
But we had 3 baptisms this week - 2 kids and 1 older man. The man has been coming to church every week for 3 years but he finally got legally married. His wife is a member and her family is very strong in the church. The marriage was really good. Lots of people came and we took lots of pictures. Then Saturday morning we baptized him and confirmed him on Sunday morning. It was really special and the whole ward was so happy for him.
We invited the couple with the baby who can't decide if they want to get married to the wedding. They came and had a really good time and said they were the next ones. So we set a wedding date for this Friday and called Belém and told them to send in all the papers. Well on Sunday morning we did a split. Elder Capello went with a youth to get the engaged couple and I stayed at the church waiting for the "elect family". Elder Capello didn't return until 9:30 and only the mom and their baby came to church. He said the husband said he doesn't want to marry anymore... Like I said - frustrating. But since they told us to send in the paperwork I think they already are married whether they want to be or not! So now they can either fix their problems or get a divorce. It really is sad because they are good people and they want to live like the Lord wants them to. Satan is just really working on them.
Anyway, overall it was a good week.
I ate figado on Saturday at lunch.. Thats liver in English!! I ate lots of liver! It actually wasn't too bad.
I studied a talk by David A Bednar this week from the April General Conference. He talks about godly fear and how it is a really good thing! I don't have time to explain what i got from it but I encourage yall to go read it for yourself because it was really good!
Well that's about all that happened since last Monday.
