Tuesday: We worked, made contacts and nothing special happened, I don´t knwo if I wrote anything special down and Elder F. Lima has my planner right now, so I´ll get back to you
Wednesday: We had a training with President Castro!!! All day, we got there at 8, and left at 6. Then Elder F. Lima gave his LIBRAS (Brazillian sign language, yes he´s fluent) class and we went home. During the training I saw Elder Marques and Elder Viana again. It was 3 zones, so I was able to see people! We had lunch at the same resturant where we went when Elder William left. With more than 50 missionaries... Now I know why it´s so expensive to go on a mission. ;) But, we didn´t do the same buffet thing, so I´m sure it wasn´t AS expensive.
Thursday: Back to a normal day of work, our last one before the crazy weekend started!!!! One more time I don´t know if anything special happened because I don´t have my planner. Sorry
Friday: Good Friday! Which people actually care about here!!!! Why? Becuase everyone has work off so it´s an excuse to BBQ and drink!!! So, our DL still wanted to do Distrito Amigo, we tried at least... We walked, and walked, and walked and walked, we made good contacts becuase everybody was happy, but nobody would let us enter becuase everybody was having parties and stuff. So, that was our whole day... Random fact, here Easter is 3 days Friday until Sunday and everybody buys giant way overpriced easter eggs... Well, nobody buys them until after Easter when they become half off. Today was supposed to be yoki, but Mara didn´t want to make anything with meat (good friday tradition), so it was Saturday!
Saturday: One more day of the same things, we were able to talk to members, because everybodeis party was still going, ya, you guessed it, it will be continuing tomorrow. So, today was Yoki, and that´s about all we got done!!!!
Sunday: We were able to teach a lesson with Thamirys (I guarentee you´ll hear more about her) and that was about it, nobody was drinking today but everybody was hung over, so the few people that got out of bed were to sick to talk to us... But, 1 more time the people from the other churches that actually went, gave us their address to talk a different day, everybody was in a good mood, so it wasn´t a complete loss!!!
Random things... Everyone is asking about Elder F. Lima... Just picture a Brazillian Jared Tuckett... Seriously, that´s exactly who he is... About General Conference... The area presidency allowed us to watch conference only on Sunday... Though during our conference with Pres, someone asked about it, and everyone was sad, then someone asked if we could go saturday if we had an investigator... then he said ``Man, you guys really like Conference don´t you?`` We replied with yes... and he said, ``All right then if you have an investigator you can go Saturday... and if you don´t, you can still go`` So everybody is happy and ready for the weekend!!! :D Today in the Central of POA there was a pastor preaching, and our feet were tired so we sat down a good distance away from him, but then by some weird coincidence he started talking about how the mormons are wrong... Uh huh, then a bird pooped on my head, so we decided it was time to leave. For anyone that´s going to serve a mission and buys there clothes at Mr. Mac, don´t get the glue in the pants. It comes out... Just get in the suits where you won´t be washing them every month.
That´s my week in a nutshell! the next time ya´ll hear from me I´ll know my new comp, and be 10 pounds heavier because of all the cake I´ll eat! (It´s Elder F. Limas birthday this week.)´
