Blessings are pouring from heaven! (along with the nightly thunderstorms)

Wow, can I just say that Heavenly Father is Amazing! Really He is just leading and guiding this work right along. Yesterday we had 10 investigators at church! The members are great here, they are bringing their friends and family! And we have and are finding some really great investigators! We are fasting and praying that all goes well for 3 of our investigators to get married so that they can get baptized before the transfer is over. Tick tock tick tock...ah! The problem is that you have to have a new (within 6 months) birth certificate just to mark the wedding (30days in advance...eita.) And some didn't have conditions to pay for the documents because they are in another state and it costs a lot to send them here. Well we fasted and prayed, and out of the blue a member came up to us yesterday and gave us the money saying that they heard that they were needing it...what a blessing! The relief society president is already working on quite the party :) So we're all praying here that all works out for the documents to arrive and mark the wedding for March 16th.... cross your fingers!
It seems that just as people are getting close to the truth, the adversary really tries to work hard...but he can't succeed. "If God is with us, who can be against us?" It's been amazing to see how the Lord is working miracles here in this area. He really knows and loves all His children. This really is His work. 
J and J are pretty much the cutest couple ever. We are trying our best to help them see how the Gospel will help them improve their family. We took them to a family night and when they told the irmão that they were planning on getting married so they could get baptized he asked J if she loved him. And she said "of course!" It was super cute...he said he loved her too:) They are staying really firm, they were bombarded with a whole bunch of anti-mormon comments but they both stayed strong saying they know that it is true and they know what they want. Yeah! The Spirit is strong!
