Update From Across The World.

Things this week have been a little crazy. The other Elders here left to open a new area so right now we have to watch over our area and the other elders area. It has been a lot of walking but for the most part it has been pretty good. I eat fish and rice and beans for the first time here as a complete meal. The fish here is good but I think I need to improve my fish cooking skills. A cape verdian is going to teach me this week. Íve eaten with memebers a couple times. I actually ate soup for breakfast today with some members cuz we couldnt last night and I have to say that might have been the best soup that I have ever eaten. I ran out of money this week so Im actaully gonna have to sick with tuna and banannas and cereal for this week. I bought a cord to send pictures but the internet is being lame so you might have to wait until next week... Love ya. Tchau

Transfer And New Companion.

Bom dia! Today is the first day of my second transfer! Its crazy to think that I have already been in Africa for more than 6 weeks! I was suppose to be with my first companion for the first few weeks but because of "technical missionary difficulties" my companion ended up getting transferred and I´m already moving onto my second companion. I´m a little nervous for this change because I am left to take charge of this area and I´m going to have a lot more responsibility but I know this change is the will of the Lord and I´m completely confident things will work out. Yesterday I had my second baptism. It was soo sweet! That was my fisrt baptism where I started working with the person from the first lesson and walked them all the way to the waters of baptism. This person had problems with all sorts of things and commandments but he worked through all of them and seeing his face when he came out of the water with the biggest smile on his face was definitely something else, the spirit was so strong. I have a lot of hope for this next transfer and I am ready to work twice as hard. One of our areas only has 3 members and they want to open up a new branch there so we´re going to be have a lot of work to do! " I hope everything is going well. PS Talk to next week. Ill be calling around 6 our time which I think should be one your time.. Eu te amo. Tchau

The Monday Morning Report

This week was way sweet! We had my first ever zone conference! Elder Kopischke from the 70 came and gave us like a 6 hour lesson. It was way good that is a guy with a lot of power. Then on Sunday we had District Conference with the whole island of santiago. It was soo sweet!!! They set up the first stake ever in the country of Cape Verde! We all went to Praia and the conference was held in one of the biggest buildings in all of Cape Verde. I got to see my companion from the MTC there which was way cool. He might actaully be getting transferred up to my area next week. Speaking of Transfers after this week I'll have already finished my first one! I hope all is well. Love you tons. Elder Edwards
