A wonderful week!

So first things first, since Wednesday, I've been working with Elder F. Silva. He's a new missionary that just got here from the MTC in São Paulo. He's going to be with me until today, actually. We should be finding out shortly where he'll be going and who will be his companion. He's a great missionary and we've worked very hard this week. He has taught me a lot of things, that's for sure.

Elder F. Silva is from Curitiba, which is a city in the south of Brazil. Apparently it's an extremely beautiful city. Elder Youngberg, from my district in the MTC is there in Curitiba with Elder Flynn (also from my district) and he's been enjoying it down there. I've been keeping in contact with him.

Neto who was baptized on my birthday, received the Aaronic Priesthood today, so he's starting the path to taking his family to the temple and being sealed for time and all eternity. It was so great to see that this past Sunday.

Other news, Taquari DIVIDED! It is now two wards, one of the wards stayed with the name Taquari, the other took the name Uruguai. We had no idea it happened, but it was exciting. So next Sunday it's going to be in the seperate wards already. Taquari meets in the morning, Uruguai in the afternoon.

We found a great family. It's a father and two of his children. He moved from the countryside of Piaui (close to Parnaíba) to Teresina for his two kids to get a better education. Here in Teresina the schools are good, but in Luzilandia where they're from, the education isn't as great. We started teaching them and it's going really well. They went to church this past Sunday. They had a really good experience. Tonight we're taking them to a family night that we're holding at Neto and Zenaide's house. So we're really excited for that.

(the internet place I was at shut down for lunch and din't open until 2 hours later so this is why I'm sending this several hours after I sent emails this morning)

I'm excited for this next week, it'll be a good one!

Love you all!
Elder Rackham
