September 9, 2014

One more week come and gone here in Magoanine! We had a really awesome week here and we are really happy with everything! We still have some disappointments every once and a while, but we are going on strong here. Umm this week the highlights.  Well this past week we found some new families! We found some really awesome new families this week and they even came to church. Our main families that are working on marriage documents, unfortunately, are having problems still. Not money problems but government problems. So the law is that you have to be 21 years old to get married. If you are under 21, your parents have to sign for you. So we have a couple that she is 19 and he is 20 which really complicates things. Her parents are here, and willing to sign, but his parents are super far away and it wont be easy to get them here. So we are looking for any other alternative to see what they can work out. Because like this, they won't be able to get his parents here. Our other family, is a newer family, and their problem is that they were registered very far away. In Quelimane, which is not close at all. And they registers are not helping out at all. I am afraid he is gonna have to save up the money to make a trip all the way to where he was registered.... if that is the case, it could take a while to get that money. Our other families are chuggin along little by little. I love every single one of them so much and I just really hope that the Lord opens up a way for us to get all this done. We are really praying for that. We have also been working with a couple less active members lately. There was a family that was baptized back in 2003 and lots of them are inactive now. So we are working to try and reactivate them all! Its really just as pleasing to see someone come back, as to see someone baptized, because its the same work! Bringing souls to the flock of god! Last night we had a family night with some of the members of the family and it was super fun! I loved the video of derrick, it was pretty funny! I am glad that all is going well at home! Today, we were gonna go bowling, but then plans changed and now we are planning on just relaxing a bit at home. It is starting to heat up again and that means that I will be covered in sweat once again in all my pics! I hope all is well and that you all have a great week!!
