“We have a big problem in our house… and you guys are going to fix it”

I just have a little bit to report this week, but everything is going well, and based on how tired I am, we worked extremely hard this week.

We found an interesting new family this week, Joaquim and Rote with their sons Manuel and Andre. We knocked on their door and they let us sit down. The first thing he tells us, “We have a big problem in our house, a huge confusion and you guys are going to fix it.” Well, happily we accepted the challenge, seeing as helping families is fairly central to our purpose. The most important thing that made this family stand out to me was their ability to recognize their problems, but also the humility to accept help. Truly the first steps in repentance. Well we sat with them again Sunday night after they came to church and he told us, “I absolutely loved Church. I understood everything, and it was as if they knew exactly what my problem was.”

It was also a blessing to find Tiago (the 14 year old recent convert, now with the Priesthood) immediately helping the boys out, I guess they were already friends.

Otherwise had a good week! We had Zone Conference Tuesday. We have been successfully collecting quite the plethora of campaign materials from all parties. Cardoso and Edith are doing very well for the marriage/baptism on the 29th of November. Mimo and Elisa have finally obtained on of the last documents they need, and should be opening the process here soon!
