Hey y'all!

So this was a good week. Elder Loureiro and I have been trying to help more people come to church and mark more dates for baptism. And this week we definitely improved! There were 9 people at church! To be honest, we were helping two families come to church, and then we get there at there were 4 other people! It was really excited to see one of the families come. I'll be honest, I was a little afraid they weren't going to come, but they did! They're so great, they want to be more happy, and they want to have more unity.

It was interesting, at first the wife didn't want to come to church, she just wanted her husband to go and her son to go. Her husband has drinking problems, but he's been working really hard. But still the wife didn't want to go. Sunday rolls around and we go to walk with them to church and she answers the door. Elder Loureiro starts to talk with her and invites her to come too, but she was a little resistant. But he followed the spirit and promised her blessings! When she heard those blessing, she really stopped and thought about it. I could see her do it. And lo and behold, the entire family came!

It was so cool! I'm so happy for them and the change that they're making. I know that they're going to be so much happier with the gospel in their lives.

So transfers rolled around. Things are staying the same! It's going to be a really good next few months here! There used to be 6 missionaries living in the same house, but one finished his mission, and the other two were transfered out. So now there's just us 4: Elder Loureiro, Elder Epperson, Elder Thomé, and I. It's going to be so much fun living with them! I'm so happy!

So anyway, I tried to attach pictures, but some of the computers at this place don't have god USB ports, and it just so happens that I lucked out and got stuck with one of the few.

Until next week then!

Elder Rackham
