Long & Rewarding Days

 Taylor and Sister B

 Ponto Verde District

 Helping prepared dinner in a member's home

Alright this week went by so fast but it was a great week of work. 

We went to Praia for leadership conference on Mon-Wed, which was completely wonderful. We learned so much and are so excited to work hard and to help our zone improve even more. We will be studying in chapter 8 and 9 in PMG and lesson 4 in ch 3. 

So for the rest of the week Sister B. and I have been leaving in the mornings to go to Ponto Verde to teach everyone, preparing and eating at members houses, comeing home at 6 to teach in the area close to our house and returning to the house at 9:30. It has been tiring but it has all been worth it because more and more people have been asking us about the church or telling us that they have already been taught by missionaries and now they want to be baptized. It has been blessing after blessing. 

This week 40-45 people came from Ponto Verde to church. It was so amazing seeing them all there leaning and partaking of the sacrament. Also one of the men received the Aaronic priesthood! We are trying to help that area grow as much as possible.

We had lesson with a new investigator there. We contacted her as we were passing to go to another persons house. As we sat down and talked we told her that as missionaries we help people make the changes that are needed to come closer to Christ. At first she told us she would think about it. After the first lesson she told us she would go to church and be baptized if she felt it was true. Wow. I love the mission. The spirit can just work with the people for a few minutes and they are so willing to follow after. 

Overall we are super tired but super happy.

Have a great week
