Hello family and friends,
Nothing much to report. I have been working a lot. My companion and I have been teaching a lot of people and I am getting over myself and talking more. I have discovered that if I want to learn I have to talk and just take the hit when I cannot say what I want to say. Everyone seems to respect that. I have also been speaking more Portuguese with him everyday. It is a work in progress.
I am also sad to report that we did not have any baptisms last week. We had one marked down but do to outside forces (i.e. his parents getting into a fight and his father not wanting to go to the baptism) put the kibosh on that. He will, however, be baptized this next week and with another person as well. I am really excited about the work here. We have found so many good people to teach.
I was on divisions last week again. I really do not care for them. I would have rather stayed here and taught with my companion, who I am accustomed to and not another guys.
Well, I have nothing to report. I will have photos and more excitement for you all next week.
Elder Caleb S. Carriere.
