Not near as many Elders and Sisters are coming to Brazil now, and all areas are being cut back. Bocaiúva has been VERY lucky to have had 4 Elders for 1 1/2 years. But our baptisms have been fewer for several months now, and there are "issues" between the Elders and the leaders of the ward and grupo. It is our turn to lose a "duplo." We now have only two -- Elder Alvarado from Texas and Elder Hinckley from Indiana. They're really fine young men, who have to fill the shoes of the four Elders from before. They are BUSY, searching for members homes, marking their own trail. We'll help where we can. We sure do love these young men! And they are so appreciative of our American cooking.
