Dear Family,

Loved the pics! Thank you for sending them. A good looking family. Could you ask the teenage boys to stop growing so much. Jesse? Carson? Bridger? Those aren´t the little boys that I remember. 

So, I´m short on time today, but I´m loving life. I can´t think of a better place or way to end my mission. We´re having great success. The Lord is really blessing us and great things are happening in our ward. The attendance got up to 110 this last weekend, which is great for this ward!

This weekend was election week in Brasil. It´s mandatory to vote here and everyone has to go on the same day, Sunday. So, there were some investigators that tried using that as an excuse, but we still got a good number of people to go to sacrament meeting. 

President Dalton announced a mission tour that Interlagos will have on the 26th and 27th of November. The Area President of Brasil, Claudio R.M. Costa is coming. How cruel. And on that same weekend, in this stake, another general authority is coming to call the new stake president. Bad timing.

We had success in reactivation this last week, which was great. A woman that hasn´t gone to church in three years. We visited her on Saturday night, and she went to church Sunday morning with her husband and kids that aren´t members. Her name is Simone, and she said that the kids said that they have to go to church EVERY week now. We were very happy to see them there, and the son and husband accepted baptismal dates in November!

This is such a great work. Love you all.

Have a great week!
