Email of June 3, 2013

Hey everyone! This week was wonderful. Tatiane and Cleber got baptised! Yay! They got married legally on Wednesday. I was worried that the baptismal date would fall through because we went 5 days without being able to teach them. We taught them in the chapel on Friday. I was all ready to do the commitment pattern and thinking about what scriptures I would use and so when they accepted to be baptised on Saturday without hesitation I almost didn´t believe it. It was a wonderful baptism. There were lots of people and cake afterward as well. We joined our baptismal meeting with the sisters. 4 baptisms all at once! It was very exciting. It rained on Sunday so we had very few investigators at church and the attendance dropped considerably. We only had Rosângela who is an eternal investigator. She just needs to get married legally, but her husband is difficult. Today we got to go to a waterfall with a member. It was really cool. We saw a snake in the middle of a bridge too. I´ll send you some pictures. There is an Elder in our mission who had a stroke. Elder Weiss from Santa Caterina. He went to the hospital last week. Now he is in the hospital in São Paulo and was already released. He is getting better already, but remember him in your prayers. Anyway. I love you all. Have a good week. See yah in a couple years! Elder Skiles
