More June 23, 2014….

So this week was pretty cool.  Visited our recent convert Erika and she is doing great.  The bishop's wife has helped her to feel welcomed a lot and it's shown me how great and important the friendship of members is.  We can help the person come to church and even be baptized but if the person doesn't have anyone to talk to they won't stay active for long.  This Saturday and Sunday we had a stake conference so it was cool to hear from my mission president and to hear from the different speakers from the stake.  We had a guy named Joao Paulo and his girlfriend and a boy named Clyton who is 15 come with us to the conference so that was cool.  They're progressing a lot and are eager to learn more about the gospel.  Clyton lives in a very poor area of Porto Alegre and so the gospel will help him .  He wants to get baptized this weekend so hopefully everything goes well!!  It's starting to get col here now but only in the mornings and evenings.  During the afternoon it's in the 60's so that's nice.  I bought a coia and started drinking some chimarrao!  It tastes like hot grass the first time I tasted it but now it tastes so good!  I think I will fill one of my suitcases with a bunch of chimarrao when I return!  All in all it was a good and busy week!  The world cup is still as crazy as ever and the Brazilians are loving every minute of it!  I hope that Brazil wins just to see what all the people will do!  I love you guys and I hope all is well!!

 We ate microwave cheeseburgers cause we were tired of rice and beans!
 Just chillin'
 This is Erika.  She is 13 and is super awesome and has a lot of faith.  She is the daughter of one of the people we are teaching.  The boy Gabriel who was baptized awhile ago helps her keep coming to church.
