Well another week has come and gone. This week really flew by didn´t it? I don´t have too much to talk about today so I´ll keep it short and sweet.
We´re gaining a lot of male investigators finally! They are basically all husbands of members who are finally getting their act together. Robson is married to recent convert Bia. On his birthday he decided to become a "new man" and accepted a baptismal date. He was having some problems with the word of wisdom but now he is pretty much clean. Naldo is another story. He is married to recent convert Veronica. He has major drinking problems so it´s being difficult but everyone is pretty sure he´ll enter the waters on the 20th. Luis Antonio is married to member Vania. His really quite but I like him a lot. He always calls me to sit by him during the sunday school classes. Vania said they have already set a temple goal so we need to get him to baptism fast. Jose is an old investigator who stopped us in the street and has accepted the 27th. He has some mental difficulties as a result of some heavy drug use in the past. We´re going to work with him and get him a little control in his life.
The other major news is that Luis Henrique was baptized on Saturday. His cousin Vinicius baptized him and his whole family (non-members) were there. His mom was balling! It went super well and Marcos the young mens president confirmed him yesterday!
Priscila threw us another birthday party! It´s not even a suprize anymore, haha. She always sends us home with a huge cake too so we´ve been eating cake every morning for breakfast.
July was an awesome month for our zone! We met our goal of 12! It was awesome because last week we had only 6 baptisms and in the final stretch everyone pulled through for a fantastic finish. For the month the mission had 120 baptisms! 30 more than last month and almost 50 more than May! The mission is starting to take flight with Pres. Pinho. Things are really changing (some new strict rules) and the vision of all our missionaries is raising. Missão Interlagos vamos voar!!!
