Super-electness (is that a word???)

This week I did a division with Elder Janssen. He is the District leader in São Borja, a city way down on the border with Argentina. He was trained by Elder Black, that was my companion in the MTC. He is from Maranhão, up North. It was pretty cool. He lives on an island.

We are teaching a woman named Maristella, and here son Felipe. They are both really good, and the other son that is 15 listened to us last time, and she said that her husband said that once she has decided that this is really what she wants, he will listen and stuff too. We are really excited about them. They have read the Book of Mormon, and feel that it is true. They are searching for the truth. They went to church, and loved it. They were very well recieved by the Branch and a guy in the Branch Presidency even asked when we would teach them so that he and his wife could go with us.

I talked to Elder Menk, he said that in Santa Maria, Laura gave a talk on Sunday and that it was really good. Also Victor went to a Young Single Adult camp thing, like there was over at the Fresno temple like 2 years ago.
The other day I had a really good study about the gift of discernment. It was really aweosme. something to apply for sure.

Coming into the week, I was really excited about our teaching group, we had some really good families, that we were sure all were going to come to church, then by the middle of the week, a good part of our group seems to have probably fallen through. But then another family that I didnt even expect to progress much (Maristella´s family) is actually showing signs of Super-electness. They read, feel it is true, even said that they wake up happy when they know we are coming that day. And when they came to church, they were very well recieve by the members. So we are excited about that. Other than that, we have a lot of people that are going to progress or get cut this week. We are going to be looking for a lot of new investigators this week.
I hope you all have an awesome week!
