So this week I will be hitting 8 months! I cannot believe how fast time has gone! 1/3 of my mission,... already gone. It has literally flown. And things are going great here in the great area of Oeiras! President Flukiger gave every companionship the challenge to baptize two people within the past 4 weeks until this next Sunday, the 9th of November. So Elder Yancey and I have been doing everything within our power to talk to everyone. We have been knocking on tons of doors, and we stop everyone on the street that will listen, to find these two that President wanted us to. It was rough but we kept moving forward with faith, everyday just relying more on The Lord, until one night we stopped a girl named Estrela. We walked with her to her house, talked about The Book of Mormon, marked her for baptism right there on the street, then came back the next day, found her sister in her house, Luana, and gave her a Book of Mormon, marked her for baptism, and then they both came to church with us! They love the Book of Mormon and the gospel of Jesus Christ and they are very excited for their baptism this Sunday! This was awesome to see that President really did have an inspired goal for us and Yancey and I knew we would be able to find these people that were ready, by just working. So that’s what we did. They really are the most awesome pair of sisters and it’s awesome to get to see the Light of Christ brighten up their lives! They were a blessing for sure!
So enough with the spiritual stuff. ha-ha jk... but anyway Halloween here... was the same as any other missionary day... got some extra candy... ( I treat myself a lot... so I got a little more this time..) and I got to see a kid dressed up like Harry Potter for Halloween so that was cool! But the kids here don’t usually go around at night. They go in the morning dressed normally and do, Pão de Deus or something like that... and they go door to door and get candy... but whatever. So November First came and you best believe that we got some Christmas music playing already!!! gotta start decorating soon!!! Well that’s about it for now. Thanks for all your prayers and love and support! Love you all forever!
Love Elder Quinn!
