Bom dia todos!!!

Hey fam!! whats up!!?? It was great to hear from you all! thanks for the emails!

So everything is going pretty good here in good ol Lubango!!! Still workin hard and havin fun!!

Yesterday we had a cool lesson with Irmao Ricardo, Adilson's dad. When we first talked to him about baptism a couple of weeks ago he was kind of wishy washy, but yesterday we talked with him about the gospel of Jesus Christ and more about baptisms and he didn't even hesitate when we invited him to be baptized! He has a baptismal date for April 19th, so he still has got a ways, but he needs to get married first.. surprise surprise:) but he is progressing really well and wants to do whats right for his family.

On Saturday we did a little bit of service for Ze. I don't remember if I mentioned anything about making cement blocks last week, but that is what we did again this week. Ze has been working so hard on trying to make this new house for his family. For almost 3 months straight all he was doing was grabbing sand from the river and hauling it up bucket by bucket. And during these last two weeks he has been making a bunch of blocks so that he can start making his house. Most of his money has gone to buying cement so that he could build these blocks and food for his family. So on Saturday, we went to help him we finish making a the blocks that he needs!! Afterwards he looked at us and asked if we knew how to lay the blocks to start making the wall because he didn't know how to do it:) ha ha I just had to laugh a little and told him I didn't know how to do that. So he is going to find someone to teach him how to do it and we will assist him in his work little by little:) ha ha I think some a the church knows how to do it so I don't think it will be a problem. Ze is progressing very well though and really wants to get baptized, but first he needs to get married to his wife. So we set some goals with him and he said that he would talk to his wife about marriage.

Other that that things are going pretty good and we are seeing the branch starting to get more organized and excited for the work!! Still loving Angola:)

Anyway have a great week!! I love you all so much!!!
