|Hello happy lovely family!|
Congratulations to Joy and Darrell for the safe and successful delivery of little Maurie! That´s niece #5 I have yet to meet - can´t wait to see her in person! As hard as it is to beat a new baby being born, I hope everyone else is fit, fine, fantastic, and having a blast!
This week went really well - and really fast. Time is flying by, and I´ve gotta get the most of it. Our missionary district has started a tradition of having a street meeting every other week (every week would be ideal but doesn´t always work out) on Saturday mornings. This last Saturday was the turn for the meeting to be in our area, and it turned out great! We received about 22 people total who let us take down their contact information and get back to them, some of them seem very very promising. One of the last people we contacted turned out to be a Brazilian man from Recife, and it was fun to be able to say that I had lived there too! As far as our teaching pool goes, aside from that explosion of references, we´ve started teaching this one lady named Titi (teeTEE) who is super nice and loves learning with us. And Celinho and Vaníce are making progress - it looks like they´re really close to finding a good housing situation soon. Yipikiyay!
Haha, and in regards to the quote from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, for our P-Day pleasure today Elder Walker, one of the other office Elders, and myself went to the Moorish Castle in Sintra, and it was quite fun. A lot of other people were there, including from the UK, Germany, probably Spain and Italy and who knows where else! But we still managed to take a lot of cool pictures, but only some of which I´ll include. I was in a meditative mood, you may say.
Well, love all of you, and hope you all have a great week! Tchau!
