Well it has been a pretty good week. I am enjoying being with Sister Hamilton. She is super supportive of me and is game for working hard, which I really appreciate. This area is a bit harder than my last area. It is a TON richer, so it is harder to get investigators. We don't have a ton of investigators right now, but Sister Hamilton and I are working super hard to get some more!
I mentioned Winter in my last email. She is absolutely and one hundred percent awesome!! This past week we taught her the Plan of Salvation in the Chapel and soft-committed her for baptism on. (soft commitment-if someone comes to know what we are saying is true, they will be baptized on that date). It was really cool because when we where in the lesson, everything that she said she told us that she could see it being true, but she wanted to pray about it and ask God if it was true first.... perfectly fine by us! She worked , so she wasn't able to attend church, but she siad that she would get off and come! Sister Hamilton and I are SUPER excited to see where things go with her!!
All of the missionaries in this area put on this Amazing Grace concert. In all honesty, it was a bit stressful. There wasn't really one person who took control of it, so during the practices it was just all of us standing around. But despite everything, we had a really good turn-out and everyone did a wonderful job. There were just a bunch of songs sung about Jesus Christ and his life and then some narrations. I had a narration part, and not a singing part, thank goodness!! Oh, and Winter came to this and she mentioned how much she loved it and that she felt so at home there! It was so awesome!!
There is this lady in our ward that is from Brazil, Monica, and she has offered to help all of the VISA-Waiter missionaries out with Portuguese. We had our first meeting this past week. Me and two other Elders who are waiting for their VISA went over to her house and she helped us out. It was super cool because she started to speak and I could pick up about 90% of what she was saying. It made me feel good to realize that some of the work that I have put forth with my language study is paying off!
Well I love you all TONS!!!
