Elder Lawrence, Elder Mariano, and Zilda

Zilda was baptised this Sunday. She was was super elect. She accepted everything really quickly and lived all of the commandments from the moment they were taught. Unfortunately on the 10th she is going to move to Campinas so we won’t be able to see her more. But it was amazing to see how fast she progressed.

Flavio is another person we are teaching. It’s been a while since he started being taught, the only thing that stopped him from being baptised was that he was living with a girl and they weren’t yet married, now they are married and we just have to wait for the papers to get here. He got up and bore his testimony. It was actually his daughter that brought him to church. He said his daughter asked to say a prayer together and prayed that he would come to church with her. He had been going for a while. She is only 6 years old, and she is really sweet. It was her prayer that led her dad to church.

Guilherme is a recent convert here. He was baptised the Sunday before I got here. We have become really good friends. He helps us out a ton. It is incredible to hear his testimony and see his desire to share it with others. He always wants to leave to teach his friends and we have found a lot of new people to teach because of him.

Love

Elder Lawrence
