Another Baptism and Zone Conference

 We have mailed Kyle 2 packages and neither of them have arrived :(  He did get another baptism.  There is also a picture with Kyle and his Mission President and his wife.  I love this kid so much...and I love being able to hear from him each week!

No packages yet and unfortunatly I heard some bad news. I saw the
address you used on the blog and im not sure but you needed to put
President Mario Dias A\C on there so they could pick it up at the post
office. Basically theres a chance they get sent back. But Sister Dias
swears that there wont be a problem. Did you get the Bishops jersey?
cuz i told him you did and now his mom is handmaking you a bag with
the brasil flag and stuff that im gonna send you. yeah we baptized
her. its was awesome, we worked really hard to get her baptized. Her
mom loves the church and everything but she wants her husband to be
baptized before shes baptized and unfortunately he doesnt believe in
God....so I dont think we will baptize him but i think in the future
for sure. But this week was crazy. We got blessed. The same lady calls
us one night and was like come eat pizza with our family so we go to a
pizzaria with them and shes like get whatever you guys want. Azevedo
said its the first time thats happened on his mission. and after that
we got a reference from the stake president to teach his friend who is
a doctor and lives in a giant apartment. He wants to move to the US
and so he wanted to talk to an american but it worked out great cuz we
are talking to him about the church and he has a large family. And
then we found the Brazilian Joseph Smith. Hes 13 he found us walking
in the street and was like hey I dont like the catholic, baptist, or
assembilea churches how can I be a member of your church and serve a
mission like you guys. like we didnt even do anything he found us. And
it was cuz we actually worked this week. we went out and our numbers
were way better. I had a division with the zone leaders and our zone
leader elder Vitor is an animal. He seriously runs everywhere like hes
so much different than Azevedo. Hes a fantastic missionary. hes always
moving hes never not teaching for longer than like 10 minutes. its
good to see people like him teach. Its something that I definately
want to try to do, cuz right now we spend way to much time just doing
nothing. Elder Vitor is a little extreme. Other than that the only
real thing that happened is my soccer team lost yesterday to the
bishops team so i probably wont ever hear the end of it. especially
since i made fun of his team all day yesterday. And it was Presidente
Dias last zone conference here. he leaves in like 15 days. Its crazy.
Hes so awesome and everybody loves him. unfortunately his mission was
tough cuz he had the task of starting a mission with bad missionaries.
I heard about a year ago there was a group of rebellious missionaries
that tried to overthrow Presidente Dias and get him released. It
obviously didnt work but i feel bad for him, I think hes looking
forward to going home. But itll be cool to meet the new president, I
hope he speaks English. Presidente Dias didnt before his mission, but
he speaks really well now. I think thats it. I love you guys. Theres
gonna be another baptism this week and if all goes according to plan
next week. byeeee
