The work continues to go forward!
I had a pretty good week, definitely not the best that I've ever had but it was still good:) Elder Sande and I were able to find a few new people this week that have really liked what they've heard so far. Cool little story: Last night we went over to Leonel's, one of our recent converts, house to see how he was doing and he had a friend there that we invited to sit in on the lesson. We asked him if Leonel had told him anything about us or the church and he said no not really but that one of his friends that now lives in Luanda had told him a little about the church and gave him a Book of Mormon awhile ago. We asked him if he had been reading and he said "Yeah I read it every once in a while". So we got into the lesson and talked a little about the Book of Mormon and he kinda came out of his shell, apperently he reads it a lot! haha. (Sadly maybe even more then Leonel...). He was able to tell us a lot about a few of the prophets. He said he loves it and knows that it has good principles and everything necessary to build a good character. Anyways long story short, you never know what sharing your testimony or just planting a little seed will do. DO IT! His name is Leonardo and a super cool kid, we had him come play soccer with us today and we're going to go teach him tomorrow. Good stuff!
Another good thing that happened this week, we were able to set a baptismal date with one of our investigators named Ilda. She is the "wife" of Julio, the guy that was baptized 20 years ago in Germany. Sadly he has kinda fallen off the map and us or her can't really find him. But she realizes that salvation is individual and she wants to take this next step in her life. She chose March 30th, which will be Elder Sande's last Saturday of his mission. I pray that everything goes according to plan!
