Hey Everyone!

Sorry for not sending an email last week. I only had a couple of minutes of computer time and didn’t get the chance! The past couple of weeks have been fantastic! Right now we have some really great investigators who are progressing really well. We are teaching one lady, Saudade, who we marked for baptism on our second visit with her. She really is so open to recieving the gospel! Something we don’t see a lot here in Portugal. We taught the first lesson to her in her doorway. She told us she would read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true but she didn’t seem to solid on it. To be honest I thought she just said it to agree and get us off her porch. But she proved me wrong! The next time we visited her she told us about her experience reading and how she felt “free”. She told us she knew it was true, and that she wanted to get baptized! Haha we were amazed. We then told her we have to teach her quite a bit more stuff before baptism which made her pretty frustrated. She said things like I already know it is true, you don’t have to try and convince me any more! She really is a great blessing to us! As of right now we are planning on baptizing her on the 1 of September! Hopefully all goes well and she is prepared by then. She is definitely our number 1 investigator right now. We do have a few others who have tons of potential, we just need to help them keep their commitments.

Anyways, thank you all so much for all of the love, prayers, support, emails, letters, and packages you send me. They really help me out every day! I love you all so much! Have a great week!

Beijinhos!
