Baptisms and Talents

I am a bit behind but wanted to add the baptism of Geraldo last week.  He is actually the brother of the Elders Quorum President in The ward that Christopher is serving.  Chris has totally enjoyed teaching him.
As some of you know from his letter last week, Elder Clark is trying his hand at art.  He says he only draws what he can look at and follow but is having fun practicing in his little bit of free time.  He is also getting very good at playing hymns on the harmonica. When I learn to add video I will show you.

Christopher is finding talents and finding JOY in his service to the Lord

Well, 7 months have passed since we sent Elder Clark to serve the Lord in Brazil~!
This past week he and elder Paim were able to baptize two of the brothers of Expedito, the young man they baptized the week before.

Just thought I would put this picture on so you can see one of the dishes Chris and his companion are eating..(hot dog pizza)Yum!!

Rainy Season and Baptism

The rainy season in Brazil has begun!!!!  Elder Clark has a 40 minute walk from his house to his new area of Paratibe.  This is a picture of him after arriving home one very rainy day....He is soaked!!
Even though Brazil is very wet right now, Christopher and Elder Paim's desire to baptize and bring new members into the Gospel has not been dampened.  Last week they were blessed to be able to teach and baptize Jose Expedito.
