6.9.2008

Hello,
This week I went on my first splits with a member for more than one lesson. it was from 4 in the afternoon to 9 at night. I loved it because it was easier to speak Portuguese knowing that the person you are with doesn’t know any English and i felt that teaching went a lot better being. I am trying to step up in teaching situations a lot more by trying to cut off my companion when I can. Doesn’t always work as smoothly I as I would hope. (when I ran out of words to describe my thoughts or when I know know whats being said) Well this week we have hit a point when we don’t have any one prepare for baptism in the near weeks. We were going to baptize Thallyson the son of a recent convert this next Saturday, but they weren’t able to make it to church last week. So we need to wait a while for him to be ready. We took one night to teach a couple that are progressing really well, the only problem is that we never can teach them, because of their job. Hourou owns a pastel stand down by the docks where the cruise liners drop of the passengers, apparently he is pretty successful. The night that we went to their home to teach them they were ready to go the work. So we went with them and got free food at The King of Pastels( but in Portuguese Rei de Pastels). The food was good. Anyway they been to church three times and are really excited about getting married and being baptized if Hourou can find his birth certificate and find more ways to teach them. It was awesome at church yesterday because a lady in the ward gave a talk about eternal marriage. It was perfect for them. We were able to teach them one other time during the week and while I was talking Hourou told me to stop and told me that I was speaking better and that he could understand what I was saying. That was a good moment. Then told me to carry on with what I had to said.Well I have included some pictures of eating açcí and not really eating sharky.(sharky is a gross meat(s) and I am pretty sure ill never try it )

Take care all and enjoy the beginning of summer
