Jan 11, 2016 - We are the Only Church That Would Do this!!!

This week was insanely windy and rainy! And I get a call from the AP asking us about something and I say how windy it is and he says how one day he was with his comp out on a terrible day and his comp just yells "WE ARE THE ONLY CHURCH THAT WOULD DO THIS!" Haha its so true! So I am proud to be part of the church and part of the missionary force that would voluntarily walk in the street for 9 hours a day in the wind and the rain trying to serve and help other people! :D

Anyway I am still here in the beautiful city of PĆ³voa de Varzim and I have received my first native comp! Elder Gomes was born in Lisbon but his parents were born in Cape Verde. So hes a Portuguese Cabo-Verdiano! Haha We've been working super hard this week and have already seen so many miracles. We are updating the ward list by visiting every member and marking if they still live there, still alive or dont want anything more with us. Its been a good way to find people to reactivate! We also found an awesome family from Mozambique! A mom and a daughter and they're so elect! We talked about family history and prophets and the spirit was definitely there! 

Afonso came to church...Finally! Its been about 9 weeks since he last showed up but he finally came and loved it and the members love him! We're working with him to be baptized on the 24th! 

Have an awesome week!
