Hey Mommy!!

This week was super awesome! We had some crazy stuff happen! We had some amazing miracles with Theber, the Brazilian kid. We prayed on Tuesday and felt that he needed to be baptized as fast as possible and still don´t know why but we felt it. So we went and talked to him, he said he would pray to find out if that was what God wanted for him. He wanted to take his Book of Mormon and Bible and stick them together and then pray and tell God, "If you want me to be baptized move the bookmark from its place in the book." Obviously that doesn't work really well!! But that night he had a dream and in the dream he saw his Bible and Book of Mormon and he saw the bookmark slowly come out and sit on top of them. God really did answer his prayer, but not the way he thought. He also prayed a different time and couldn't stop smiling and crying at the same time. It was super awesome. Then on Saturday he still was doubting and so we left him alone in the room to pray and search a little. He said he opened his scriptures and his bookmark was on a page he had NEVER been to. It was not where he left it. It was in the topical guide on the page "baptize, to baptism." God did move his bookmark in reality as well. It was super awesome!! The sad part of this story is that he was not baptized because his mom says he has to learn more about he gospel. Basically he will be baptized as soon as his mom lets him, so we have planned some stuff to talk to her about. If not he turns 18 in August when he will be baptized then for sure!!

The branch here has about 30 people, there are lots of less actives that just need to come back. We are working on moving the chapel, which will help. 
 My birthday was great, we had dinner planned with some member who did a big surprise party!! They had a big cake for us with our names in the shape of a Book of Mormon it was great. We ate dinner and I got a tie and it was great! I will include a picture of the cake I made that you sent, it was super yummy!! I attached a picture of it!

Sounds like you have had a busy week!! That is scary about Nana, I am so glad she is doing better! It sounds like you guys are having some super exciting times there!! Just think a few more weeks and it will all be get to come here and visit the beach and the castles and everything!! :) That is a bummer that Dad can´t get all his hernias fixed up before you come get me!
