LAV Round 3!!!

Hello beloved family! Don´t worry, you may all continue to send your mailing items to the Algés address, because Elder McFarren and I are staying here for at least another 6 weeks! Unless of course you´d rather mail stuff to the mission office, which works out fine anyway. So! Thanks everyone for the emails - the blog update thing was a terrific idea. (Thank you Aup, since I think it was your idea!) Happy belated birthdays to Mic, Natalie and Tearisa! I hope you all (plus Dad) had great birthdays!

Life is great! We´re working with these two young men, Paulo (20) and Cadu (17) and they are coming along. Paulo got a ride from the bishop and came in his own suit - quite a snazzy one too! - and was very well greeted by the members. He´s very accepting and loves meeting everybody and learning about the restored gospel! We plan to mark him this week for baptism and are praying for God´s continual help and guidance!

Thanks again for all the news, pictures, and prayers. I´m happy Mom made it home safely! Thanks for the Liahona article about Paulo walking 25 miles to church. Hopefully that story can inspire some of the people here. Love you all and I hope you have a great week! Tchau!
--Elder Ellis V

ps - my prayers will be with Zach, I hope everything works out with that growth thing. Godspeed!
