4/30/12 Email from São Mateus

My week was pretty good, it went by really fast. we are having fun here.  Me and my companion are trying to have high goals so that we are always working hard and we almost reached our goals this week. We now have 4 people set up to be baptized on May 19th, they are the mom and the kids in a family, it is hard for us to find the dad at home.  We are trying to work with all of the other references that we received, but it is kind of hard because our area is really big and we are trying to visit everyone that we can.  We are receiving a lot of references and everyone that we have received so far are progressing pretty well.  We have not gotten a reference that we have not added to our teaching pool, there has not been one that we have felt like the members need to accompany them a little more.

Oh, I have 2 other roomies, Elder Stewart from Spokane, WA and Elder G. Rocha who is from Rio De Janiero.

We met a lot of people that rejected us yesterday. I was trying to talk with a lady and she said that she didn't like us and our religion and told us to leave. Oh, I also talked with an American yesterday and I had a hard time talking in English. But it was pretty cool as he said that he has talked with the missionaries before and said that he will ask them about their message when he gets back to the States.

Last p-day we played a lot of card games and wrote letters and just rested.  Today we are probably going to play volley ball with some members.

We had a special visitor in our mission this week, we got to hear from Elder Quintin L Cook, that was pretty cool and really a special experience.

In 2 weeks I will be talking with you all. We got to have a service project, the first one in a long time and we were cleaning up someone's yard. It was good and it felt really good to do some hard work with my hands and forearms.  Well, I don't really have much else to say.  Miss ya

Elder McBarron
