One of our investigators, Roldofo, took us to a car exsposition that they had here in Sao Paulo. We had to ask the Mission President to let us go because it was outside our mission, but he let us go. It was pretty sweet, I’ll send you some pictures after.
This same investigator we are teaching with his wife Michelle. They want to get baptized but need to get married first because they are living together. Something that is really common here, people live together for years, have children together but don’t get married. We helped them out with a few things and they are going to get married on the 27th of December. It is really enjoyable teaching with them. I actaully asked President to stay here one more transfer so I can see them get married and baptized. This is the first time I have asked something like this from the President so we’ll see how it goes
Another couple we are teaching is Cintia and Rodrigo, they have gone to church two times now and are going to get baptized on the 23rd. Cintia went to the church a lot as a kid, her dad was a member, although when he passed away she stopped going. She had never been baptized and was very excited about it. Her husdand, Rodrigo, study theology in college but has a very open mind, more open than any Theologist I have ever taught.
We are teaching another young mother. She has come to church a lot now. I think 4 or 5 times. She comes alone too, which is really impressive, her husband and mother are also against it which makes it even more impressive.
I listened to a Brad Wilcox talk he gave at BYU “his grace is sufficient” it is a really amazing talk and I would encourage all to listen to it. http://speeches.byu.edu/?act=viewitem&id=1966
PS I’ll try and take some more pictures this week of the people we are teaching
