"All is well here!"

September 28, 2015 - Whaddup my fellow people. All is well. This past week was a good one. Easton and I found a man named Jolly from Nigeria who speaks English. So we got to do some teaching in the english language. That is always a little difficult to try to remember how to say things in english, but it was pretty cool. We are kind of struggling however with finding people that will let us come back and keep teachin them. It´s part of the mission, always always always lookin for another person/creature to teach. But we enjoy our time together and have a lot of fun! This transfer is flying by! We are already in week 5! For my birthday we ate lots of cosmic brownies and american candy, and did some service (carrying buckets of sand from one part of a ladys yard to the other) and then we went had some Angolan food from a member then went home and had time to work in our area. It was a good day. On sunday, went to church and Andrey received the Melchezidique Priesthood!!! It was the coolest thing ever! He is also the new Leader of missionary work in our ward! He is doing really well and is excited to help the church with its growth and is planning on going on a mission in a year. Then we went to a recent convert family's home that we are pretty good friends with and had some soup and some cake for my birthday! This ward is pretty sick! Today we went and hit up Hard Rock Cafe and I got my rack of ribs!!! It was pretty good! Yancey came and celebrated with us as well! All is well here! Have a good general conference weekend!!!
Love you all!
Love Elder Quinn

"but now I am loving it even more"

September 7, 2015 - Welp, one more week here in the great city of Massamá. On Monday Easton and I were hitting some doors in a place called Sao Marcos, and we found a family that actually has pretty good potential. They read in the book of Mormon and are praying. Unfortunately they haven't seen the importance of going to Church to receive an answer that this is the right path to take, but we will keep you updated on them. We have been working a lot with recent converts and less actives as well this past week so we didn't teach as many lessons as we could have. The ward is helping out a lot in our work and making sure that the recent converts are integrated and have callings. We found a pretty cool kid named Nuno that seems to have a lot of interest! We are going to have another lesson with him tonight! The mission is going soooo fast right now. I cant believe how quick it has gone by. We got some new missionaries in this past week and it felt like just yesterday that I was there. I have loved the mission the whole time, but now I am loving it even more. Me and Easton are goin lookin, as always, for the Lord´s elect! Everything is goin fine here. Not eatin the healthiest... but hey, gotta take advantage of having good metabolism and walking all day while I can, right?
Love you all!!!
