May 21st, 2012
Well I will be staying in São Fransisco for another transfer and my Companion will be..... Elder.... Welling. haha Two boys for the same state who arrived in Brazil on the same day staying 4.5 months together in the same area. haha Crazy

This week was a good week. Went by really fast and we survived another bus wreck. This one not nearly as bad but caused by another drunk driver driving the wrong way on the road. This time we were on a city bus so it is a good thing that we didn~t lose control or you would probably be getting this email from the mission office haha.

About 3 weeks ago Elder Welling and I prayed about which members we should visit to do a program with us like Elder Aiken did with our Family. We both felt like we should visit this family that is really weird and that is super uncomfortable to be around so we went to another family with plans to pass by this family one day. Yesterday we passed by this family and spent the first 15 minutes in the most awkward conversation with pauses pregnant with oitoplets. Finally we were able to break the ice and started talking to them. They hadn~t been to church in 3 weeks and expressed to us how happy they were that we had come. We were the first people to visit them in the three weeks that we had been away from the church. Isn~t it funny how the Lord knows who needs a visit? We didn~t even do the missionary program with them. Just shared a message and left. It was a really good experience. 

This next week we have the baptism of Vitoria. The family that Heavenly Father Showed us is progressing really well and despite a few hiccups in the logistical side of things we are really excited with them. We are trying to reactivate all 6 of his children and we need all the prayers and all the faith we can get to help us do this.

Oh in other news this week Elder Welling got a phone call that a package with his name on it got taxed.... he was waiting for one from his family so lets hope it wasn~t his from you guys that got taxed and sent back. haha Or else he will have one shoe... lol

Anyways love you guys lots the work is progressing here,


Elder Noel
