Its been a while

So it's been a couple weeks that I haven't been able to send my normal update email out to be put up on the blog. I've been spending more time writing President (he wants us to write in detail the things going on in our area) so I have less time to write this email. But! This week I'm able to!

When we first got to Açailândia, there was a family here that was baptized, except for the oldest daughter because she lived in another part of the city. Well, this past Saturday she was baptized! It completed the family now! It was absolutely wonderful to see her, the last member of the family to be baptized and to see the happiness in the eyes of her siblings and mom. It was a very spiritual baptism as well.

It's been a great 5 months here in Açailândia. It's gone by so fast! It's hard to imagine that it's been that long. It seems like yesterday I was here for the first time!

There will be two new areas for missionaries to work in next week. In the state of Tocantins, the city of Araguaína, and in Maranhão, Caxias (Caxias is close to Timon, which is close to Teresina). Missionaries have never been there yet in these two places. I'll let you know next week what's happening.

Well, gotta run!

I've been spending more time emailing President Dias these past couple of months. The purpose of my email I send to President Dias is to report on the work and how it's going in my designated area. I need to report on my personal progress as well, and my companion's progress. So anyway, I've learned to be more detailed in this email, because it helps him be able to help me.

Anyway, I'm without time again.

We're working with several families and they're going great.

Until next week!
