E Esse Calor!

Man, it´s been pretty hot lately!  Brazilian heats on another level, let me tell you!  But the people are great, we get offered water in every house we enter so it´s okay!

   Anywho, what´s up?  This week was transfers, so the beginning of the week was pretty crazy for us.  The last half of the week we were able to do a lot of work in our area, so that was great!  

    We´ve got two investigators that are really progressing well, they´re P. and G.  I still haven´t taken a picture with them, sorry!  It´s a lot of fun teaching them because they read everything that we leave with them, they pray, and the gospel makes sense to them.  

   Yesterday we taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ to G, and he loved the lesson.  He said "of all the churches that I´ve attended up til now, this one makes the most sense by far."  He´s reading the book of mormon daily and has already gained a testimony of his own.  He´s 16 years old, and got to know the church when a friend invited him to seminary.

   P. is also progressing great.  He loves coffee, so we´re working with him on that one.  Yesterday in the lesson he was voiceing his doubts about the fact that he can´t drink coffee, and we explained to him the idea.  Basically, the question is if the Book of Mormon is true.  If it is, then Joseph Smith is a prophet.  If he is a prophet, then this is a commandment from God.  He started to express his doubts about that, and we just listened.  He talked for about 4 or 5 minutes without stopping, and after having finished his process of thinking out loud he said "that actually makes a lot of sense.  Dang.  That´s cool!  That makes a lot of sense, there has to be a modern prophet."  It was a lot of fun seeing him answering his own question!  P. is 15 years old, and we found him doing street contacts.

   We´re hoping and praying that they both are baptized this saturday.  It´s going to be great!  It is such a joy to see the people that you teach learning, seeing how the gospel makes sense, and most important recieving their own testimony of the truth by the holy spirit.

Got to go, but I love you guys!
