The time just keeps flying by, and so many things happen each day it is difficult to know where to begin. We went to Careces for a mini CTM training with the missionaries. It was wonderful and dad shared an experience from his patriarchal blessing and talked about the blessings of a mission. As for me I made popcorn balls for everyone. We really enjoyed the training and the elders did a great job of teaching about obedience and work etc. We had ice cream in a little place next to the river.

Our Stake Conference had a visiting authority, Elder Costa of the presidency of the seventy. The talks were excellent and we loved it. The Romrells came Tuesday for a visit and much to their disappointment ended up staying several days. He left his bag at the airport and it was stolen. It was a difficult experience for them. We enjoyed their company, and might have had them for longer but Elder Romrell sprinted back to the airport to retrieve Sister Romrell's bag which was accidently left...again. They have crazy luck but they are back in Sorriso. They are a great blessing to that area, building the kingdom and doing amazing things with the people there. They work in the areas of Sinop, Lucas and Sorriso. We heard a wonderful quote in church today. "To the strong Soldiers the Lord gives the biggest battles." I sang in English "Tell me the Stories of Jesus" in gospel essentials at the request of the teacher. That is about it for this week. Dad is crazy busy with the office and yes, we are getting ready for transfers again. We are loving this wonderful work. And of course we are so grateful for your love and support. The Church is True.
