Christmas just flew by. Crazy to think that it has come and gone again. Christmas Eve we went to Renata and family´s house. They are an awesome family of recent converts that love the misisonaries. We had dinner, everyone got some sweet zip ties, and then they invited us back for breakfast the next morning. It had been a while since I´ve had a decent breakfast, and it was delicious. Then we went off to the bishops for lunch, and from there got to talk to everyone, which was so great, and then went home to get some much needed rest. Loved it.
The week has been great. Elder Bradd and Elder Luiz, the other companionship here, had a baptism yesterday. It was fun to participate. We had three investigators there, and all of them felt the Spirit really strong. Luciclea and Fernando were telling everyone that they will be next. We just have to get them married, which will probably take another month or so. And then our other investigator, Debora, come up to me after the baptism and asked to be baptized. Her family is huge in a another church, so she will face a lot of oppostion, but she told me she felt God touch her heart while she watched the baptism, and decided that´s what she wants. We were way excited, and marked her baptism for next week. Pray for her and her family. Her family is awesome, and we would love for them to feel the same spirit that Debora felt.
Those are highlights I guess. It should be a busy week and a busy new year. Lot´s of work to continue and a lot of people to visit.
I´m so grateful for all of you and the support you give me. I have a firm testimony that families can be together forever, and that is one of my greatest desires. I love you all and hope you have a wonderful 2015!
