Hey guys,

Well, this week went pretty well. Running around ans getting everything ready for the wedding and baptism this week. Everything is looking good and we are setting up more baptisms for this month and next. So, the work is going really well...We are finally having some good success in this area. It took awhile and a lot of work, but now we are getting the rewards for it. Tomorrow we are going to do the wedding for a couple where the man is already a member, and the wife isn't. Her name is Michelle and has been going to church for a few months now, and is really prepared for baptism. She pretty much got a testimony early on and then just accepted the rest, so it was fun to teach her. But, we already have some good baptisms set up for next month too. If all goes well, we'll get this ward baptizing every month....

We had zone conference on Monday. I always love hearing from Pres and Sister Jayme. They really are the best! We talked a lot about obedience, loyalty, and the purpose of the Holy Ghost in conversion. It was really good, and I took a bunch of notes. It's always fun to see some friends and old comps, so it was a good day.

Elder Lewis is cool. We are becoming good friends, and he's already getting better at Portuguese. He's a stud.

I'm excited for Christmas! Just another 17 days. I'm sure Erynn is counting as well. Next week, I'll try to get the number for you guys to call. Oh, I also got the "Feliz Navidad" singing card from you guys. Thanks! Only thing is- I think Callen's handwriting is better than Megan's.....speaking of...

Happy Birthday Megan! Parabéns!

Well, I know that this really isn't the longest email ever, but other than that it was pretty much just a normal week in the life. We'll probably be buying a Christmas tree this week and putting it up in the house. But hope all is well and I'll talk with you next week (well, I guess REALLY talk in 3 weeks!)

Love you!

-Elder Eric Stapley
