Ed Vera....

Familia e Amigos,
 So this week has been pretty awesome. So to start off I want to mention something that happened this last friday. So there is a scripture in 2 Nephi 28:5 about some of the things that people will say in these days and one of those things is eat and drink and be merry because tomorrow we die and God will save. So that is a form of people tricking themselves. So on Friday we had to go up to Assomada to do a baptismal interview. So as we were going up to Assomada there was this guy in the car who was just talking a lot. So as he was talking eventually he looked at us and asked if we were part of a church. We explained who we are and then he asked what the main thing of the church is. In that car with everyone there we were able to explain a bit about the restoration and prophets. But what was funny was that after all this he said 'nha igreja é comi bebi' or in English' my church is eat and drink'. holy flip the Book of Mormon is true. 
 So then on Saturday we had a baptism. holy flip it was one of the best baptisms I have ever had. so to explain why our investigator has fear of the sea. so for a long time she had a lot of fear about the sea and about baptism. So on Saturday we got to the beach and Fatima was feeling more or less. but we were going over and when we entered into the ocean we grabbed Fatima by her hands and walked with her. She said that when we were there with her she didn't feel afraid. and specifically she said that she could go to Tarrafal and back because as she said God was with her. even though Fatima was made fun of a bit she was resolute and it was just stinking sweet. 
 and after all of these sweet things that have happened. I am being transferred to Praia  i'm excited but i am going to miss this area so much. I stinking love these people here and yesterday i was about to cry because i was leaving. the people here are amazing. It's so small here but it has been one of the most incredible places that I have served  I am so glad to have had this time here. I know that the church is true and I know that it will bless the live of everyone. I love you all,
here's some pics of Fatima's baptism, and the other one is with nelson, nozinha, sandra, claudia and my comp,
