This week was great! It was a full week and I am absolutely exhausted. Today is a much needed P-day, that´s for sure. But this week was filled with a ton of awesome things and was one of those weeks where I am super tired but happy too. The week was made even better when a ton of people that we have been visiting came to church yesterday!
Tuesday I spent the day with Elder Lessa in his area and we had a good day. They have been struggling to find good people that are willing to do the things necessary to progress so we ended up just doing a ton of contacts on the street and teaching in the moment. It was good and Elder Lessa is from São Paulo and he is super chill and a good missionary.
Wednesday Elder Evans and I and went to Pecém to visit the Sisters there and help them in their work. I gave the training about the role of the Holy Ghost in conversion. I feel like it really helped them. All the Sisters there have less than 5 months on the mission and are having difficulty getting people to church so we are focusing on helping them a little more.
Thursday we moved from our huge house in one part of Caucaia to a new, nice apartment in another part of Caucaia. We live closer to the church now and the Center of the city and the apartment building is in the area of Elder Evans and I so we are loving it. A lot less walking for us but moving all of our stuff in the house was quite hard because our apartment is on the 4th story. But we had some young men and one return missionary from the ward help us out so it wasn´t too bad.
Saturday we went to Paracuru to do 4 baptismal interviews. It was awesome and they all went well and in Paracuru they baptize people in the ocean so that was a fun experience for them.
Yesterday was awesome because the family we found last week came to church and they loved it! They are preparing to be baptized on May 2nd, and Robson and Tia who have been coming for a while and we have been visiting them for a long time are preparing to be baptized this week. Things are going very well in our area and our zone so I am happy!
Also, some exciting news is that Elder Christofferson from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be visiting Fortaleza next week and will have a conference with all the missionaries in both the missions here in Ceará. It will be next Tuesday, April 28th! We are pumped and it will be great!
That´s about it for this week. I hope all is going well with each one of you. Thank you all for the love and prayers. Have a great week!
Until next week.

Whenever we travel to the other cities in our zone this is what we see all the way there.
It is very beautiful and tropical.
