Sorry for the short email last week! This week will be a bit better! The work has been going well, a bit slow because of the world cup and everyone leaving on holiday, but I am still enjoying it! Our investigators are doing all right. Unfortunately their progress has slowed down because of word of wisdom issues or something of the like but we will help them out! We have been doing a lot of work with less actives recently. This area has a lot of members, but very few actually come to church, and even fewer stay all three hours. It has been working a bit! We had a meeting with the branch counsel yesterday which went great. We discussed our goals for the branch and how we are going to reach them. We came up with a great plan. One of our goals is to get a new family in the ward. To help us out, all of the members are going to kneel down in prayer everynight at 10:00 and pray to God asking him to send a family here. Whether it be a convert baptism or a family moving into the ward, it doesn’t matter. We will do all of our work, and the we will expect God to respond. The church really is growing quite a bit here in portugal. It is incredible. The members really are starting to get more excited and pass more references and give more input in the work. It is fantastic. I hope all continues to go well! Have a great week!
