Well I have had another good week as always busy but enjoyable. To finish off this last week we had Zone Counsel which went well. Our mission just called six new Zone Leaders and they are all excited and willing to serve. It is funny to think that this last Zone Counsel completes one year of counsels that I have been to. I am not sure if it will be the last but it has been a great experience. It has been interesting to see the changes in the leadership and the attitudes of each leader. Out of all the meetings in the mission Zone Counsel is probably the best and most spiritual. On occasion our Staff meeting are really great but I have learned a lot from our zone counsels. At this counsel we spoke a lot about the mission but in particular the missioná focus or vision. To teach to convert, increase convert retention, reactivate less-actives, baptize more men and families, and train leaders.

But the weekend went well nothing to crazy we have been working hard both in and out of the office. We are having some success with some inactive families but we will see how things go this week. We have been trying hard to work more with the members but things are a little tuff. I love this ward and the members but we have little contact with the most of them. We did take a young woman to church on Sunday that was baptized a few years ago. Mariana is her name, we have been working with her for a while and we were happy to see her their. She also took her younger sister to church and she enjoyed it a lot.
But as for the beginning of this week nothing to crazy, just a lot of work. We are starting to crunch for Christmas. I am in the process of working out a Christmas Mission Choir in which we will go and sing at various locations throughout Maceio. In addition something that wont be too exciting for everyone else but the church came out with IMOS (Internet Mission Office System) which makes our work a lot easier so I have been busy getting orientated with the program and inputting all of our data. Like I said I am sure that isnt very exciting for al lof you but once I get things up and running it will make my life easier.
But I am happy and excited. I love you and miss you all!
