Well, I just learned (literally I learned 37 minutes ago) that the mission is sending two more missionaries to our house. I also learned that I will language train one of these missionaries, which means that Elder Lustosa and I will no longer be companions. However, all four of the missionaries will be serving in Ala Autran Nunes, so the area will be divided between the two missionary couples. 

Also, there is a possibility that the trio of Sister missionaries will be divided, because there's a slight chance that one more Sister will be sent to their home. Which means that in one week, my district will have grown to twice the size than it was. Also, my companion will most likely know absolutely nothing in Portuguese, so almost all the work rests with me. To sum it all up, the mission is going to get a little harder. Challenge accepted.

This week we had the baptism of Lusyleine. She is a saint. The rest of her family has also been investigating the Church, but she has been the most active and the most diligent in her search for the truth. Also, she is an amazing cook, and likes to bake for the missionaries. Added bonus.

The actual baptism of Lusyleine didn't run too smooth, as we found out that the baptismal clothes of our ward disappeared. However, we were able to borrow some from the other wards, and everything worked out fine in the end. Mabye the baptism started a full hour late, but Lusyleine was all fine with it. 

We are hoping and praying that the rest of Lusyleine's family will follow in her example. We have grown to truly love this family, and it's really hard to see a family that is partly in the truth, while the other part is out of it. So, we are going to need a lot of prayers on everyone's behalf to really help this family out!

Until next week!

Elder Bishop
