I am not sure what happened this week, but it is already gone. Everything is starting to blend together as the routine of the mission and the office has been ingrained in my mind.

We had transfers this week, which went as smooth as ever. We found new families this week, many from successful references.

It has been interesting as we have worked with Bishop Mateus. He has asked for our help in the “rescue” of less active members of the church, generally a work we don’t focus too much on.

Yet these past two weeks, we have seen a surge of old members retuning to church as we have prayed and acted according to his vision for the ward. Thus we have seen an increase in sacrament meeting attendance and union with the bishopric.

Today we had the opportunity to visit the Assembleia da Republica, or Mozambican Congress. They let us into the historical records of the country, and right on the chamber floor.

We are making history!
