"he is the right one for this time"

Welp, once again here we are. Week 3 of this transfer. This past week was a little interesting. Elder Easton and me got kicked out of our house for the week to let sisters live there due to some problems they were having in their house. So we moved in with the other Elders here in Cacem for the week. It is really fun living in a house of 4 elders, but we aren't always focused. We should be moving back to our house tonight or tomorrow, so that will be good. Because of this move for the week, Easton and I didn't work in our main area as much. We went to a little town called belas, unfortunately didn't find much, but we´ll keep looking! This past week was fun. Got to have a few member meals which is always awesome!!! Our recent converts are doing well and should be getting callings here within the next couple weeks. We had a change of bishopric here. Our old bishop was in that calling for 6 years here in cacem, the new bishop is awesome and will really help in continuing the work of the Lord. It was really cool being able to be in the sacrament meeting when everyone in the congregation raised their hand of support. The spirit was pretty strong in testifying that he is the right one for this time. Other than that,... not too much. Still drinking lots of juice, and now I'm starting to love drinkable yogurt!!! So all is well here! Love you all!
Love Elder Quinn!

"18 months this week"

Welp.... one more week here in Caçem! The last week of the transfer was awesome!!! We have been working with a kid named Alex who was not expected to be home from vacation in Spain until Septemeber 1, but the Lord worked us a miracle and brought him home earlier and then we marked him and he was baptized on Saturday by Elder EASTON!!!! He was found by the other Elders in our ward and they were working with him until Easton and I showed up and took half of the ward which he lived in, so it was a group effort, and he is really cool! He wants to serve a mission already! This past week was pretty fun.We didn't find too many people, but now Easton and I are staying another Transfer here in Caçem so we will find plenty!!! Yesterday was sooo cool! At church, Andrey and Alex both were confirmed members of the church, and were given the Aaronic Priesthood after church! It is awesome seeing the growth of the Lord´s kingdom happen so quick! The bishop here is really good about helping new converts receive what they need right after baptism! This ward is awesome and this area has a ton of people! We gonna find a lot of people this transfer!!! Thanks for all the love and support! All is well here!!! 18 months this week... insane how fast it really goes....
Love Elder Quinn
