So at the beginning of this month I told you how we were helping a couple get married. We sent their papers to the place where they do marriages with all the money and everything. I called the guy afterward and confirmed that he received it. After 1 week they are married and in 15 days he sends a certificate that allows us to have a ceremony. So they planned this ceremony for the 26th of March. We sent the papers weeks before to make sure there would be enough time. But last Monday I didn't receive an email about the certificate so I called the guy to see what was going on. He said that he never received any papers from me and hasn't done anything for this wedding... So the president of the stake called and talked with him and he found the papers. But he said that he can't do the wedding unless he has the 2 original birth certificates. So Tuesday we got the original birth certificates and went to Belém and sent them to the guy. But he said they aren't married until 1 week after we send the papers and that they can't do the ceremony until next week.. So I had to call these people and tell them that this wedding they planned and sent out tons of invitations and what not for can't be done on the day they planned.. You can imagine how that went down. So the stake president had to talk to the guy again and apparently they worked something out so that they did have the wedding this past Saturday. I don't know what they did cause I didn't ask.. I was just glad my part in it was over. So that was one fun thing we got to deal with this past week!We did a division last week. After the district meeting on Wednesday I went with our district leader to his area and one of our zone leaders stayed with my companion. It went well. Our district leader has been teaching a youth for a little while and he wanted to be baptized, the only problem was that his mom wouldn't sign the permission for baptism form. I guess I was his good luck charm or something because I was there for one day and she totally signed that baby. So they had a baptism this week!
I got my new shoes! I had to go to the post office and pay 40 reais taxes. I also got my Easter package. And I've been hearing a lot of crazy stuff about the politics back home. Everybody vote smart!!
Thanks for the photos! Banx's tie is at the perfect length! I love seeing everyone and the kids are so big!! Glad y'all had fun at Easter!!I don't have any more time to write, but this was a good week! I am really excited for conference next week and so are our investigators.
