Elder Helm  Guaratuba

Always a good week when someone goes in the water! So Adriana got baptized on Saturday by Elder William and I confirmed her on Sunday! It was so awesome! And her son who she is trying to help out, Luiz Henrique came to the baptism and liked it a lot! So we will see what we can do with that (:
Adriana was such a champion! She just cut off cigarettes and coffee and then just didn't go back! she is so awesome!!! And it was such a cool opportunity to take her to baptism! And the ward here is so awesome that she is already totally integrated with the members and getting visiting teachers to go over there and she already has friends so it worked out pretty great! She wants to serve like crazy and came over to the church to help clean at 8 on a saturday morning and helped clean the church for like 5 hours! She is awesome!

(*** BTW- In case you don't remember this was what Ian first told us about Adriana on Feb 23:
So Elder William and I had been praying to find someone that really needs the gospel in their lives and this awesome lady just showed up to church on Sunday and we went and visited her after church! super smart single lady with a kid named Adrianna who studied chemical engineering in the USA and speaks fluent English and is looking for a church that can help her and her son because she feels like she needs more religion in her life! it was super awesome to find her! Total blessing! I'll keep you guys updated on how everything goes with her and her son (:   )
But the work here is still going awesome! William and I are finding people all week long! And we are learning more together how to follow the spirit! Linda is still on for day 11 of April, and Camila and her daughter Camili are still good for april 25! Its gonna be sweet!
Blanchard and Helm are way awesome and had the coolest experience the other day! William, me, and Helm went and taught these two girls that Arine and Helm started teaching the last week of the transfer and taught them about the restoration and baptism and life after death and ended up being a huge lesson because their mom had passed away a week before. They have a dad who is drugged out and the live in a tiny little shack that is falling apart! We had a super awesome spiritual lesson with them the first time and then Blanch and Helm took over when Blanch arrived. The other day one of the girls had a dream that her mom came to her in white robes and told her to go to church and they went to ours! So they will get baptized now on the 11 of april as well! Super awesome mission miracles!
I love my mission so much! Guaratuba is gorgeous! We went and ran 6 km with the youth this morning and went up this huge hill here to a big Christ statue and it was sweet! I'm so blessed to be out here and although I miss home I know the mission is the most important thing we can do to prepare for our lives in heaven and on earth! I have no doubt in my mind! Christ atoned for us and we will be blessed and live for eternity with our families if we keep the commandments! 
I love and miss you all! Have an awesome week!
Elder Keller
