I'm in Heaven

Dear Family,

This week has been nothing out of the ordinary for Salgado Filho but, for any other place, it's amazing!

Maybe you guys remember about Elder Eduardo from Santo Angelo. He was my Zone Leader and really good friend. He passed through this area almost a year ago and left a great impression on the people that he knew. He was teaching a family and everyone in the family got baptized but the dad, Marcelo. Everyone said that he wasn't ever challenged by Elder Eduardo to be baptized so he passed through our area and visited him and marked his baptism! He was baptized yesterday along with an 8 year old kid in the ward.

there were 80 people at the baptism and 188 at the sacrament meeting! That is the most people in Sacrament Meeting I have ever seen. The only baptism with more people was the first baptism here where there were 106 people! Wow, the church is true! I feel so blessed to be here especially with my new comp.

His name is Elder Branco. He is from São Paulo and played soccer on two of the most famous teams in the world; São Paulo and the Corinthians! He was playing professionally but stopped to go on a mission! So as you can tell he is the man! We are a lot a like, hard workers, like to joke around but not be lazy. We going to have some amazing experiences!

This week we have been finding a lot of new investigators and are praying and fasting to have a lot of investigators at church on Sunday. We would appreciate your prayers in this behalf! Thanks for all you do, Love you all! I'm excited to talk to you all on Sunday.

Thanks for everything!


Elder Z
