2/22/12 every woman wants an eternal family

Dallin got on line EARLY today and we had not sent our emails yet... luckily I was on writing him when his came across... he got ours but after he sent his 1st one! (Yikes, we almost missed him!!!)
Anyway, here is his 1st email...

well you didnt write to me this week. i feel very unloved....i havent gotten any letters in like a month and now not even my family likes me....hahahah jkjkj...but i really didnt get any im sending a picture and ill let you know that the work is going well...weve got a baptism of a man on sunday, a priesthood holder... his wife has been a member for like 10 years, went inactive married him and came back to the church like 2 years ago....a lot of missionaries have gone and tried to baptize him but we got here at the right time, we did everything we could during last week to help people but nobody firm to be baptized this week....until sunday night at 8 oclock, we went to visit this members mom who went to church sunday....found out she wasnt married and thats the only thing thats holding her back from getting we taught them and Flavio wants to baptized finally! i almost started crying when he accepted because i know how crazy his wife is going alone and trying and trying. every woman wants an eternal family! she was in the other room putting the baby to sleep (the same age as Weston) and she heard and she came practically running in and goes, "what did he say?!" haha it was really cool. i love being able to help people that dont know what else to do. we took a lady to church sunday too, that we hadnt really taught yet too...just invited her to church and after the meeting she goes "nossa! gostei muito! quero ser batizado! vou casar e batizar logo logo!" (Wow, I really liked! I want to be baptized! I will marry and baptize very soon!) haha it was really cool, were getting things ready for their wedding and her daughter and husband are going to go to church this sunday! que bencao!! amo a missao! amo voces! obrigado por tudo!! até mais! (What a blessing! I love the mission! Love you guys! Thanks for everything!)
