They Expressed Their Joy in Their Testimonies

"Hello. This week things seem to be improving a bit around here. Though one thing way annoying is that we were teaching this way good Uruguayan couple, and then all of the sudden they got evicted and we have no idea where they are. Probably back in Uruguay. Well at least the seed is planted.
We have been having some trouble in the greater part of our area, and so this week we went to this neighborhood really far from the city, a place missionaries had not worked at for a while, and we had some good success. finding some good new people, one of which went to church. So we´ll see how it goes there.
I forgot to write last week that I had finished reading the Book of Mormon in Portuguese, and also this week, I finished reading the New Testament in Portuguese. SWEET.
There were two days this week in which it was like death hot, sun killing you, and then out of nowhere, during the afternoon, it just rained. Hard. For hours. It was crazy.
This sunday, in total, 8 people came to church, 4 inactives and 4 investigators due to our efforts. It was very gratifying, because we have been having a really hard time getting people to church here in Quarai. The branch members got quite exited about it, and expressed their joy in their testimonies. It was quite good.
Today I have been a missionary for 7 months. It's crazy how fast it's all gone by. Crazier than that though, is that 5 months of that have been in this tiny little Quarai. Crazy."
