Well, its been another hot week on my little known desert island. But it was a great week! First of all, yesterday was transfers and after going and saying goodbye to all of our recent converts, we waited for the call that may or may not come. The other Elders in the house received theirs but that was it. So, it looks like I will be spending my 6th transfer with Elder Conduanhe (3 transfers straight! Wahoo!) in Achada Grande. To be honest, we were really expecting for one of us to be leaving so it was kind of a surprise. But it will be an awesome transfer and we will work our area hard!
In other news, last week we had a baptism! His name is Danielson and he is 16 years old. A less active member helped us find him and I can remember our very first day with him; he told us that he was really interested in the Church and wanted to change his life with the new year. So we started talking to him, and he came to Church. Soon after that, the youth of the branch really helped him and he became really good friends with all of them. They invited him to go to seminary every night with them, and it was exactly after he started going to seminary that his testimony and desire to be baptized grew rapidly. At his baptism, he had a lot of friends (members, less actives, and investigators) come. Even his father showed up and saw the actual ordinance. It was super special and now we are going to try and teach the whole family. That family is so nice. They keep trying to feed us food! Elder Conduanhe had the pleasure to perform the baptism too. Oh, and for your information, the kid that is in the picture with Danielson and us is Xandy. We have been talking with his parents and they might let him be baptized soon (like this or next week). Certainly hope so!
