October 27, 2014

haha sounds good! I got your five packages ohh my goodness! I took a picture of me standing next to all the boxes! Early christmas right!

Just finding and following up with people in this area here. I´ve had a ton of people who have accepted us after the first visit. The other missionaries that were here had been baptizing every week so I'm going to keep trying and finding people to teach. The members here are great and love helping the missionaries out a lot so the area is having a lot of success!
can you put in one of the boxes quejo the cheese suace it doesnt exist here in brazil :( only for doritios but its super expensive its like five dollars for one can

yea I got tons of syrup I think it should last until the end of my mission so thanks alot! I also got milky way bites and twix and 27 starburst!! The brazilians liked the starbursts And I still have about 15 or so

Monday went and visited the family of Elisanjela again and so it was fun to see them and have some fun. Joseph the six year old is crazzy and has lots of energy and is always running all over the place! P days always go by super fast! 

Tuesday- Our appointments fell through so we tried to find people to teach but didn´t have any success. It was a super hot day and my arms are dark brown again so I wont get any more sunburned. 

Wednesday: I had made a bunch of contacts with people on the streets, so I got excited so I planned out the day with a bunch of contacts and decided to go to an area where all of these houses would be close together so that we could teach a bunch of lessons in a short amount of time. It would´ve been a super good plan but all the people gave false adresses.... So it was another day of lots of walking but we mananged to have a few lessons with people so that was good.

Thursday: We went and tried to visit Philipe but he was in another city and sick. We went to a section far on the other side of our city and taught some new people and marked appointmets so hopefully it all works out. Then we went to a family that had been baptized a month ago and they gave us food and told us to come back on saturday so that we could make bread together. 

Friday: We had a zone conference with the president and the assistants and it went really great. THey taught about how we need to remember our goals and to continue applying the techniques in the lessons. They did some practises as well and It helped alot. 

Sat we ate bread with the family of Jane and it was alot of fun, it was good to visit them agian they are doing really great and the grandma wants to make me a pair of brazilian pants should be pretty awesome.

Sunday: I gave a short 10 minute talk on my purpouse as a missionary. I used preach my gospel to help me out and the talk went great! After the meeting we received 3 references from the members. After church we went and visited a few more people, then we went to our investigators house. His name is Tiago and he is planning on getting married in January so that he can be baptized. He has been going to church for two years and is super awesome! We made a barbeque together and I learned how to make a barbeque, brazilian styled! It was a good way to end the week. 

Love you guys!
