American meal!!!!!!!! (made it myself, NBD)

this ones for maci! tell her i still have the present she gave me!!! 



Whats up whats up..... This week was another great week! We had our first multi zone conference on Thursday and it was super super awesome!!! Good food, good spirit, and good friends!! haha what more can you ask for?? We heard a bunch of talks, and had some really really cool trainings! It was way cool, made me realize how awesome my mission is and how awesome my mission president is!!! And AFTER received a package from home loaded with Reese's and Doritos which was sooo awesome, I was STOKED!! Thanks mom your the BOMB.com! Got some dr. pepper too, at the deseret book store also as usual... man I miss dr. pepper!

Haha, aside from food and good times, are week went really well with our investigators as well! We have been teaching a guy named Vitor, not sure if i gave talked about him already, but he is a STUD! Man i love that guy! he has such a strong desire to read the book of Mormon and learn about the gospel its awesome! He will be such a powerful missionary if he gets baptized... WE marked him for the 14th of this month to be baptized, and he is excited!!! We had a really great lesson with him, teaching him about The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the spirit was super strong! When we left, he told us that he feels a special peace and happiness whenever we visit him... That was an awesome moment!! We have also been working with Irenilde TONS, but she still doesn't feel ready... She has gone through  baptismal interviews and still says at the end of them that she doesn't feel ready... Elder Almeida and I fasted for her yesterday and hoping we will know how we can best help her! Something super cool happened also with Thales (the 13 year old kid who's a member, was in the pictures with the super gnarly rain) he called us on Saturday and asked us to go to his house... When we got there he had a plan all written out on how he wants to help his mom get baptized... He was super excited to try to help her, we talked to her and the step dad and she wants to be baptized!!! She needs to get married first, we are going to help them tomorrow to get all the documents and stuff! That was a miracle that came out of nowhere!

Lots of great things are happening right now, I am really learning how to be patient and humble right now. things don't happen in our time when WE want them... Its all in the Lords hands and we just need to put our trust in him because he knows whats best! Thanks again guys for all you do... I feel so loved getting so many letters and emails from all of you! This church is true!!!
