Nov 7, 2016

Weekly Update:
This week flew flew by. Monday Sister Cannon and I went to Av. Paulista.
Tuesday we did Yngridy´s pre interview for her baptism. I liked how she interpreted things. She said she didn´t want to buy things on the Sabbath day because it was disrepectful to Christ- the day we remember His sacrifice we´re buying stuff. Later that night we had a meeting with the liderança of the youth and I said a few of my opinions.  
Wendesday we went to the temple with Awana. We went to the waiting room and showed her the paintings and we took pictures in the garden. It was POURING tropical style but it was great. She loved the temple. Later that night we took one of the young women leaders to a recent convert’s house and we talked about goals and we helped Gabi the convert organize her day to read the scriptures and pray every day.
Thursday we taught Rafael with the Bishop. Good news- he accepted the 20th to be baptized. Bad news- we found out he is not actually married. In Brazil they have a law do inimigo that is called união estável that the couple sign a paper that gives them some rights of a marriage without having to be married. And complicated news, Rafael was thinking about getting married but now is thinking about "separating from the old hag" so that´s complicated. There is nothing in that relationship but this will have to be a decision with him and God what he wants to do. We are praying and fasting by the 20th it´s resolved aye aye aye. 
Thursday we had our district meeting and Yngridy had her interview and passed to be baptized. 
We are teaching a young man who is really cool and interested but his mom is of another faith so that is complicating things.
We are continuing to teach Ana who has read into Jacob in the Book of Mormon. She really likes it. I think she has already received her answer but wants a little more time. But she is really good. 
Saturday Yngridy was baptized. It was a great baptism. We invited the Pres and Sister Thomas and they came. Yngridy´s sister and her sister´s husband´s family was there who are members. 
Sunday she stayed in with her brother-in-law´s family so she will receive the Holy Ghost this Sunday. 
When we passed by Sunday morning, Awana wasn´t at her house and we were like where is she at? And she had slept at her step dad´s place (she had went there to watch a movie the night before and fell asleep) so we went there which is a couple doors down and we woke her up and she came to church :) She is very excited for her baptism this Saturday. We are really praying so every thing goes ok too. 
We also had a sweet miracle. We are teaching a great family Kaarina, Edivoldo, and Kailane. And they all came to church early and all fancy :) They really liked church. We had a sub in the gospel principles class and it was Irmão Roberto who is a very smart lawyer and he gave a great class on faith proved that Christ is our Savior it was cool.
Later that night we had a famly home evening that was super great and Karina and her family came. The message was how can we have more happiness in our family and after we played cat and mouse with ties. It was great. We taught Kartina and her family about the gospel Friday and invited all of them to pray about the 20th to be baptized and they said they would pray. 
Just two more weeks. We are praying for some big miracles. The Lord is preparing His children for this wonderful gospel. I know this gospel is true that Christ is our Savior
