"...brings him to church each week, so his conversion will be sustainable."

This week was exceptionally ordinary. We were unable to find a lot of good new people to teach, just a bunch of old people. No offense to old people, but they are very stubborn and don't really get what we explain.
Guilherme has continued to be in a tough situation. His mom refuses to even talk to us or anyone from our church, which is especially odd because she is not really solid in her church, and her church has nothing against our church.
We are working on a few little schemes to get her to let him be baptized, like tricking her into talking to us, giving her a present, threatening her with eternal damnation, and other stuff like that. I think it is pretty much foolproof.
So I will talk a little more about the food I have been eating. So normally, PBJ is eaten on white sandwich bread, which in reality has little to no nutritional value (thanks mom and dad).
The other night on the way home, we stopped by the bakery and they were out of white bread, so I was forced to buy some whole wheat bread.
I reluctantly slapped together a sandwich and lo and behold, it was the BOMB!!! Wheat bread, crunchy peanut butter, and guava jelly is an excellent combination. So that's about all I have to say about that. Also I bought this nutella stuff, which, when combined on bread with peanut butter, tastes much like a Reese's (spelling?) peanut butter cup.
My weight has dropped from 83 to 79 kilograms.
I got a hair cut the other day, I had been putting it off for the last seven weeks, just cutting it little by little myself. I had the lady (who happened to be a member who has been inactive for 15 years) cut it pretty short, and, alas, I am going bald. I don't really care though.
That little boy that I probably talked about last time, Bryan, went to church again and now we just have to plan a day for him to be baptized. We have a lady that brings him to church each week, so his conversion will be sustainable.
I got a letter from Zach, sounds like he is doing well. Also, I got one from Matt, the Russian!
That thing was sent in like July I think, but just got here. It was a great letter, and Matt, I'll hit you back soon with some classy photos and stuff.
Thanksgiving is Thursday, yeah!! I will totally not do anything to celebrate.
Well, it is raining a lot, and that means a power outage is inevitable. Love you all, have a great week and Thanksgiving!!
