This week went pretty smoothly. The furniture for the apartment arrived this week. This means that we are officially sleeping in beds, and studying with tables. I completely unpacked my suitcase for the first time in a while, and let me tell you it is glorious!
Carla and Fernando are progressing very well. As far as their marriage goes, they are so anxious to get baptized that they are looking for the fastest way possible to get married. As of now, we are just waiting for a document to arrive from Rio de Janeiro and then it’s all set to mark the wedding date. Sister Q. and I are really hoping that they can be baptized this month (August.) We are fasting and praying that everything goes super smoothly with their marriage.
Today I get to watch a marriage take place! Nelci is getting married to Paulo and then Nelci’s baptism will be the following Saturday. We are so excited and my companion gets to be a witness. So cool!
Anyway I am really short on time today because we can’t be late to the wedding. But the work is going super great here in Porto Alegre. I am learning a lot and the gospel is changing me as a person. Thanks for all of the wonderful support that you guys give me. I love you all soooooo much!!!
P.S. I became rather emotioned upon hearing the news of Dash. ;( He was a REALLY good dog. I hope that all of you can feel comforted even though this had to happen. Follow Jacky and pray a lot and Heavenly Father will comfort you. He is definitely in dog heaven right now. 😉 LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
