I forgot to tell you all about our goal for Açailândia last week.
We had our interviews with Presidente Dias. He talked to me about the
area and his vision for the area.
Here in Açailândia we have a bus that takes everyone from the area
where we live to the chapel, because it's just over an hour to walk
there or it's 4 reais to get there and back. One person can pay for
himself or herself, but families can't afford to pay that much every
week. So the bus is helping a lot.
The only problem is that the bus will stop running by December. So by
December we want to have 100 people from Vila Ildemar (where we work)
going to church. That way, when the bus stops running, we have enough
people to have our own congregation in Vila Ildemar. We need 20 men
to form the leadership necessary to have a strong ward. We're really
excited to work. I hope I'll be able to stay a long time to help
reach this goal.
Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes!
Until next week!
