haha. I guess it doesn´t seem that fast to me. He went to church two weeks and the third week he was baptized, the fourth confirmed. The rule is that they have to go to church two times before they are baptized - so they can go one sunday and be baptized the next after church - like how it was with C  ha. I feel like once people know that our message is true and its thre right path to take, they don´t really want to wait. He and C BOTH asked when was the soonest that they could be baptized. The question that every missionary wants to hear! :)
This week, Sister C and I have been thinking on what we can do more in our area to help the people here. We decided to put up a missionary mural on the wall along with a calendar to have home evening with the members, who will be committed to bringing an investigator. We already introduced this idea to several members and have several family night´s already marked. I´ve learned that the importance of a member in missionary work is, well, THE most important thing! :)

A was baptized yesterday! His friend brought him to church two Sundays ago and he went the past sunday by himself. He loved the church and how he felt there.
And yes, O and L did go to church on Sunday :) They are THE best :)

Chocolate Fudge Truffles - Brigadeiros

Like so many South American treats, these little fudge truffle balls have a story in Brazil - they were named after a famous 1940's Brigadier General named Eduardo Gomes, who apparently loved chocolate. They have a caramel and chocolate flavor that's unusual and good. Kids will enjoy helping to make these, and it's traditional to serve them in little paper cups. Store these chocolates in the refrigerator.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Chocolate sprinkles for decoration


  1. Pour the condensed milk into your heaviest pot. Stir in the cocoa powder and the salt.

  2. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat. Keep the mixture barely at a boil to prevent burning and sticking.

  3. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring, until mixture becomes very thick and shiny and starts to pull away from the bottom and sides of the pan.

  4. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and the vanilla.

  5. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. With buttered hands, roll the mixture into 1 inch balls.

  6. Roll each ball in the chocolate sprinkles, and place in a paper liner.

  7. Chill until ready to serve.
