President Said I Could Extend till May!!!!

(The most common starting line in all of my letters  :)  

          This week went by really fast.  No really....it went by way too fast.  What made it go fast?
We had lots of work to do in the office this week and at the same time lots to do in the area. 
          As far as the office goes: There are two "Prezies" that we've been working on.  One for Zone Conference, which is this and next week.  The second is a training that President Kretly will be giving to all the members about the importance of family history work and the "my family" booklet.   This past week we were able to finish them both. However, because of all of the work we had to do in the office, there were three days that we were't able to get to the area.  The other days we made up for it though.  We still got 40 qualified contacts and taught a nice new family.  This week we had a family home evening with Nelson and Louisa along with Carlos and Ana and it went very well.   Nelson and Louisa and their kids, Cynthia and Julinho, are doing very well.  They've developed the habit of family scripture study and family prayer.  It's starting to become a habit for them, even their little kids of 9 and 6 years are starting to participate in the family prayers.
    We had to move Rondaldo and Iva's baptismal date back to the first week of april because they don't have all their marriage documents yet.  They came to church this week and instead of being late they were early, which was super nice, especially because this past sunday was branch conference.  The attendance for our branch was a record high too!  There were 256 people in our sacrament meeting in the maputo 2 branch.
