Dear Family and Friends,
So this week we were off to mindelo for zone conference, lovely as always. But this time the sea was REALLY bad, even I felt a little bit sick to the stomach. Luckily, we all made it though, until we got on dry land and a few hours later we heard that our district leader was sick. whoops. Then, we were praying for good seas on the way back, but we had to such luck because we missed the boat... the last one for the day. So we were stuck in Mindelo till the next morning when we had to get the morning boat... and the sea was even worse. But we survived.
Then on Saturday, Aldivino was baptized, and it went so well! Blessings! And he was confirmed on Sunday without any problems. I dont know when the last time that I had a baptism that didnt have any problems... oh wait... this was the first.
We did find a family as we were knocking doors after the baptism because our previous appointment fell through. We were about to give up and go back to investigators houses, but we decided to knock on one more door,I chose the door, and the woman that answered was so welcoming and let us in without us even saying anything! It turns out that her daughter is a member in the Netherlands, and she loves the church! We think... and are praying... that they are already married and they live with their two teenage daughters, who are amazing! We are hoping that something will happen with them, and that we can keep talking to them because Sister M. Santos said that she had knocked on that door several times and no one was ever home. That was the miracle that we were waiting for, que bênção.
Unfortunately, we will be having 2 weeks of stake conference, and we won't be able to have baptisms till the ... but we will have a few prepared for that day! So glad to be back in the Porto!
Till next week,
