I arrived in a new area called Carazinho close to Passafundo. I´m in the area where all the models from Brazil come from and I´ve only been here for a few days but after being I think I will return here after my mission. My new companion is Elder Farias he´s from the north part of Brazil a state called the Bahia. The members here are super cool. The mission leader didn´t help the missionarys out before I arrived but I started talking to him and we became good friends. Then he took us in his car and we vistited 4 inactive families and sung hyms for each one of them and left a message. The mission leader liked our visits so much that he told us he wants to do this every ! So it was great to see how the members are helping out here. This first week here has been very busy, especially with trying to adjust to the new area. We have the whole city as our area so there is alot of work to be done. We take buses from one side of the city to the other everyday to visit all of our investigators. We had a cool member named Jonathan and Luis who go on splits with us to have more lessons with member and it helps the people alot when they see the members bear their testimonies for them. I like teaching here in this city alot more because the people can understand me and several have stopped me on the street and have told me that I speak super well and so I´m starting to feel alot better about my Portuguese. Its so great to have so many great people to teach and to see how the gospel is changing the lives of so many people.
