This week was awesome! Wellington was baptized amd confirmed!
He helped us teach a new investigator yesterday in the chapel--he bore powerful testimony and is planning on working with the elders(he invited them over for lunch on sunday then they will go out and work together!). He even went to a priesthood meeting last night--he is being integrated really well. Seriously, he is super elect! He will be a great missionary!
We also got a new Ward Mission Leader and he is SUPER excited to help us. His son comes home from his mission this thursday. On Friday, we have an activity planned. Brother Gerson(our WML) is helping us integrate our investigators and converts, and the ward here is really on fire. The work will continue to grow here in Itapecerica and we are happy to be a part of it. All of the missionaries here are having success and our gospel principle's class is consistently full!
This week I also got to go to the temple! Such a sweet spirit there...
I just feel so blessed. Yesterday was the primary program and the kids here are just so cute. All the primary songs in Portuguese are just so beautiful. I teared up as they sang ``A Família é um dom de Deus``(the family is a gift of God)--I don´t know what song it is in English but it was sooo cute and I remembered my primary days and how blessed I was to grow up in the church with wonderful parents and siblings. Thank you, thank you mom, dad, elissa, nathan and haley!
