This week we are going to have a baptism, as well as the Elders, and the sister´s. We all have baptisms planned to happen this week. Elder Bastos and I went to the Elder´s area to do an interview. After the interview finished, they came out and Elder Bastos said, ´´Natila is gonna be baptized. and Elder Hilton is going to baptize her!!`´ i thought for sure he was joking about me being the one to baptize her, but he wasnt. i never taught her and hardly know her, but she chose me to baptize her. Elder Lima was a little upset, but it was funny. So i will be baptizing her this saturday. There was only one problem. Just before we left her dad got mad/upset and didnt sign the paper because he didnt like how Elder Bastos closed the door when he interviewed his daughter. So as of now she cant get baptized because we dont have her dad´d signature. But Elder Lima and Elder Loureiro are going to go back and talk with her dad and get things settled. it shouldnt be too big of a problem.
We have been teaching Debora and preparing her for her baptism which will take place this Friday. I am really excited! i´m hoping to be the one that will baptize her. This week starting today Elder Bastos and I are setting high goals in order to achieve the award, ´´Padrão de Ouro´´ (standard of Gold). there are lots of requirement to get this. we have to have one baptism(ready), 25 lessons taught in the week, 10 lessons with a member present, 21 new investigators made, 140 contacts, and a few other high numbers. I´ve never achieved this goal before but im ready to work hard to achieve it this week! its kinda fun, because its like a game. you try to beat your old highscores and earn an award if you achieve it. ITS ON!!!
Last P-day we went to t beach we went to called beach of Farol de Itapuã. Itapuã is a city and another area in our mission. maybe i will serve there one day. all of these pics are from before transfers. so we went to some families to take pics and say goodbye for elder Araujo. he served there a while back and wanted to stop and say hi and bye to a few people
