19 months..... Who would have thought I would have made it here? How the time flies. The clouds have come out and things are cooling down... barely. The cloudy season isn't my favorite one here. But its nice to be able to wear long sleeved shirts again. General conference was great. Unfortunately we couldn't watch all of it. One thing that I learned, is that we only fail when we stop taking steps. Our pace towards becoming better is not as important as our direction. I have been really trying to figure out how to keep progressing and I really feel like those words helped me.
This past week we found some cool people. We knocked on a door and a black man opened the door. We entered and he asked if he could say the prayer. I was expecting a catholic prayer, but he prayed the way we do. We asked him after the prayer if he was a member already and he told us that he was baptized when he lived in Lisbon. That was a cool little miracle that happened! Hopefully we can help him come back to the Church! We found a couple that has talked with the missionaries before and we are having a family night with them. Andrey also had us over to meet with his mom to start teaching her The Gospel! Hopefully all goes well! Things are going great here. We haven´t been teaching as much as we´d like to be. But we will keep on going and finding! Thanks for all your love and prayers!
