this week was good. We worked hard and found some cool people. The area here is a small city, with lots of restaurants and BBQ's which is good. I eat lots of chicken and rice mixed together for lunch everyday. It's called galinhada. There's nothing American here. It's very German and Brazilian.
I have a new companion from Utah, his name is Elder Dickson and he's cool and a super hard worker so I'm going to learn a lot. I'm trying to work on stop thinking in English and only think in Portuguese to learn faster. It feels weird to write in English right now. I started to translate the Bible from Portuguese to English to understand a lot more in Portuguese.
During the week we tried to visit a member who lives in an apartment but we could never pass her house. We found a lady named Isolde who went to church a few times but we couldn't find her either so we taught her cousin and it went good. We found a lot of new investigators also. We were walking on the street where a member used to live and we found this lady who was having a bad day because she was having problems with her house. So we taught her and invited her to church and she went so that was awesome!
And this week I learned that the gospel helps people a lot when they have problems and they go to church it helps them have a better day and a better week. It's great to see the changes in the lives of the people who accept the teaching of the gospel.
I love you guys and keep staying awesome!!
