Lagos looking up!
Hello lovely family!
Great to hear the news, funny quotes from kids, and see pictures! I´m very happy everything is going so well for everyone!
Things in Lagos are going well. We´ve found some new people that look promising - a Brazilian family/friends group, a Brazilian couple (the husband was actually baptized a few years ago in Portimão, a neighboring city with a solid branch, but has been attending a different church for the past couple of years) and a Portuguese young man of 17. This young Portuguese kid, André, came to church on his own and liked it too! (Of course!) Yesterday was our zone conference, so we´re taking care of the Preparation Day essentials - groceries and internet - today. The zone conference went really well, and we´re really going to increase our efforts to focus on and find the elect. Then teaching and helping them be baptized will be easy as pie! (Apple... or chicken pie... take your pick.) So we´re going to focus on this young man André, and this 9 year old son of a less active woman who hasn´t been baptized yet. And all in all sprinting to the finish line!
Love you all, and I hope you have a great week!
