about the investigators! we are still teaching Islei and Mecia! they are doing awesome! they go to church every week and are even giving referals and helping us teach! we are just waiting for the marriage papers to leave the court, which is a process that takes longer than non other! but should leave this week so that we can marry them and baptize them before the end of the year! about Isac, he lives in a city that doesnt have to church, so we have taught him a couple times by telephone, but if he cant come to church at least one time a month here, we cant baptize him, which is rough because it is really expensive to take a bus from his city to aracaju! so its still a work in process! Carmelita.. well she opted out, really sad because i had been teaching her for so long, but no matter how bad that i want her to accept the gospel and repent, she has to want it to! maybe some time in the future?? we had lots of success this week finding new people to teach, the most interested is named Bernadete, she is the mother of a family that is completely members, she has a bunch of church books and material and stuff. but she is marked for the 20th, she told us that the only way that she would be baptized is if it was in a river! so looks like we are gonna have to find river here that isnt poluted so that we can baptize her! ;)
things with elder gauchay are great! and yes mom, Lisa Gauchay is his cousin! small small world right?/ i really hope that i stay one more transfer with him! especially so that i can acompany the progress of Islei and Mecia! but i already asked Pres, lets just wait and see what the lord has planned now!
had a Zone meeting this week! it was a little rushed planning wise! but it was really good, elder Gauchay had this video clip of yoda, the "do or do not" seen when luke is on dagobah! so we passed it in our meeting! it was so legit!! Yoda is basically a prophet!! So hoping that our zone can start doing!!
