White House Branch

 Soo, this e-mail didn't send last week. But here's what happened...
   This past week was pretty sweet. So y'all remember Se. and Vir.? He's getting divorced this week and marking a wedding date this week too (with her, and he was married a long time ago but split up and didn't ever have money to split up)! yeah! They're eternal investigators of one year. It was always my desire to help some et's baptize. Woo!! 2 Sundays ago I talked with a lawyer in our branch if he could help him out. He said that he doesn't work with divorces but he could talk with a friend. Then he called us on Friday and said that his friend could help them out and do the divorce for free! (they already had the papers done and all of the children were already grown up.) Then Sunday the lawyer talked with them and they got really excited! Also, we're helping them with addictions and this morning we brought a 14 pound bag of oranges to their house to help with cigarettes. (eat an orange whenever you are craving a cigarette) That also animated them.

    One of their nephews or something like that (relative) is preparing to be baptized this month too! he already came to church once! and another too! but he lives in the area of the other elders, so we passed him to them.

Ma. and N. are doing well, they went to a branch activity this past week. It's really expensive to marry in Brazil if you're from another city. You have to have your birth certificate from your home city and you have to had gotten it from there in the past 90 days if you want to marry. Pray for them to not get disanimated!

I don't have time bye!

W. (V.) and Is. got baptized!
(W sometimes makes the sound of V)

     So I'm teaching English class here and I'm running out of resources to use. Could y'all send me a few tongue twisters and ideas to use? 
     Also, we're doing something that's basically a family home evening, but it's a branch activity every Wednesday night. We're running out of ideas for the activity. We used "Do You Love Your Neighbor", "Mafia," "Honey, I love you but I just can't smile," the pterodactyl game, charades, and a few other interesting and different games. But do y'all have any ideas for some party games that we can play with them that aren't too complicated?
     This area's pretty sweet. When you show up at the door and knock, a lot of them will call you into their home even before knowing who you are. And they already offer you water right when you show up. So you show up in their living room and see if they're interested or not. 
     There's a cool member here that likes to cook. We went over to his house earlier today and we made lasagna at his house. He also gives us home-made bread once a week/once every other week. Last week he made us rice casserole in the oven. It was really, really good.
     I ate corn ice cream! It was weird! Ice cream but corn flavored! But it was good. Here has a lot of different flavors of ice cream that are exotic and cool.
     Se. and Vir. got a little disanimated because it's ridiculously expensive do divorce and marry in Brazil. But they are still going to church!

have a great week!
