|Madeira zone with Pres and Sis Fluckiger|
This week was quite incredible.
Louisa, the daugher of a less active lady, who has been less active for about thirty years and is now coming back to church. She loves us and is super religious and believes everything she says, she just is really busy right now and feels unsure about baptism. But teaching her is awesome.
Diogo, a middle age man who comes from a family of atheists and has passed through a lot of hard things and wants to be clean again and repent. He has a sincere desire to be free from all his sins and start over. He drinks and smokes, so it will take some work, but he has a really really pure desire.
Tereza, the aunt of a recent convert who opened up to us about how she wants to quit smoking, and we are helping her do that, and in the process helping her come unto Heavenly Father and feel His love for her. We love her so much, and she has a ways to go before she can get baptized, but the lessons we have had with her have been the most spiritual lessons of my mission.
Rita, who has been been investigating temples for a year and finally got around to doing a visit of the church. The members already love her and she wants to do family History and learn more. She is so patient and sweet and loving. We are planning on marking her for baptism this week.
All of these people we love so much. It has been the best week of the transfer. And I feel like it happened because me and my companion decided to put things on the altar of sacrifice. We named three things we could do better and be more obedient or diligent and we have been working at them hard, and the blessings are apparent.
This has also been presidents focus, to help us be consecrated missionaries. Yesterday we had a visit from one of the seventy, elder Kearon. It was so awesome. Just the 12 missionaries on the island and him. between what we learned with him and what president has been teaching us, Im planning on making some changes in my mission, but ill let you know more about that as the time goes on.

Paz, amor, casamento do templo,
