This week was... Cool. On Tuesday we had ``Distrito Amigo`` Here and we found 14 new investigators in 2 hours. Me and Elder Ritz found 1 family super cool, hopefully they´ll go somewhere!!!!

Wednesday: WE took a big ole rain shower as we crossed our area to go to an appointment in the sketchiest part of the area. I don´t know if I ever told ya´ll that I´m in a pretty... less safe area. ha. But, I like it here. :D 

Thursday: The rain continuted and we did too, we visited our Recent convertrs at night and during the day we visited some of the references from Distrito Amigo. 

Friday we got rained out again but, we worked through it. We visited 2 investigators (Ananda and Gustavo) And contacted a bunch of people because we were needing to boost the stats (numbers) 

Saturday more rain... It was starting to get annoying by this time.  But, we visited 2 less active members at night and we studied after lunch and a meeting with our ward mission leader. until about 5. The rain was too ridiculous to leave. 

Sunday was a good day. We had lunch with Jair and Iara. Then we had a bday party for a kid in the ward (Wasn´t even a party we just ate a ton of cake.) Then we visited a less active member and ate more... Yesterday I almost threw up because of how much I ate.

Well.... Transfers are in, but nothing changed so I don´t really care. Ha.
Thursday we have the inventory of the mission and Elder Mazzagardi (President of the area) Will be here to look at stuff and give a training.

Funny story at church on sunday there was a little baby that kept farting, and I lost it laughing because I was thinking about the time when Soren let to big ones on my leg during church in Utah. 

Happy birthday dad!!!!

I hope everything is going well! HEre everything is going well, normal.! ha, but I´m happy! Just tired, like always. And nothing cool is happening so I cdon´t have alot to write about. :(

Well on Tuesday we had zone conferences, 3 zones went to the mission home and had our conference, it was super cool, we then had lunch at a restaurant and went home at about 7.

Wednesday we went to the temple! We left at ten thirty, ate lunch down town with our zone then took another bus to the temple. We had the session, took photos then we went home, getting home at about 8 after eating a snack in the center.

Thursday we had a normal day of work ya know? Nothing super interesting happened.

Friday: We went to a recent converts house that lives way far away. they picked us up at the church and made us a dinner, before that we visited some people. When they were taking us home they took us on top of a mountain and we were able to see the WHOLE city, it was super cool, though I forgot my camera. Next tame I´ll take pictures. ;)

Saturday: English class in the morning (No one went) :D  So we4 visited people after lunch going to a lot of Less active peoples houses and that sort of stuff. We got some good info on why they went inactive.

Sunday: Church, then Gre-Nal (Grêmio and Inter played) So nobody was on the streets!!! We visited members then hade a marked dinner with another member.

Our ward mission leader had his baby (his wife actually had it)  The branch ``Chui´´ Opened up Why is that so cool, look up that city So everyone wants to go there to open up the work!!!

Well, I won´t lie... tuesday we did absolutely nothing... We studied in the morning then went to the church where we had our zone training and interviews with Pres. Castro. That took the whole day... Until about 6 actually, then we were hungry so we went to a less active familiies house for dinner.

Wednesday: We did a ton of stuff, nothing that was super memorable, we went to confirm the baptisms but... They weren´t home so, ya... That´s that. 

On thursday we confirmed the baptisms for real then we played uno with them for a little bit!!! We taught Heber visitied the recent convert here in the ward that´s pregnant (She´s 14) That was good to talk a little bit with her.

Friday we went on splits so that our DL could do the baptism interviews. I stayed in the other ward with Elder Hiatt and we walked a lot because everything that they planned fell through. Cool right, as if it´s not bad enough when that happens in my own area, now I have to deal with it in other areas!!! :(

Saturday I came back to my area, we had our classes at the church (English and guitar) We taught Heber again and then we went to get the church ready for the baptisms, the tank takes forever to fill up so we had to go the night before.

Sunday: We passed by their house to walk to church with them... Nobody answered. We were a little bit late so We thought maybe that they were at the church already, we got there... Nothing. we called and called and called... Nothing. Well, after 2 hours of calling one of them answered said they were on there way. They got at the church about 20 minutes before it ended and we got everything ready really fast...

What happened (basically) The baby cried the whole night, they didn´t sleep unti 5:30 and didn´t hear anything. It was a tiny bit more complex than that but ya´ll will have to wait for that story. :D It´s a lot to type.

Here we go...

Monday. Nothing]

Tuesday: service lunch, then we had to fix our shower, that broke... Again, for the second time this transfer well... As you might know here they don´t store the water and heat it in a tank, the water gets headed at the shower head as it´s coming out so the shower head likes to burn out... Turns out we had a little bit of a  problem with the wiring in the house so a member came over after lunch and helped us(He did everthing) fix everything in our house so we could stop taking cold showers! after that we had a FHE with a less active family!

Wednesday we had our district meeting, then everyone went home to eat lunch and then we had our ``Distrito amigo`` Well, there I went on splits with an australian that has 3 weeks in the field, lets just say I taught everything that day. Though it was kinda cool, it made me realize how much that I´[ve really learned here in the last year and month.After that we went to our baptisms house and talked with them, it was a good  night! Everyhitng is ready for Saturday! :D

Thursday: We had a service project in the morning (But what´s new here we serve... a lot, it´s good but I kinda miss studying) Then it rained, and it rained, and it rained. So, we did some indoor service projects while visiting members (We were actually just hungry and tired of the rain, it worked. ;)   ) That was our whole day, eating and talking with people out of the rain!!! :D

Friday: We finally had a good day with decentish weather and a lot of people to visit and invite to conference!!!! We started off running, and continued running until the end of the day, inviting everyone to conference and... unfortunately to say, it didn´t 
go so well. Nobody went. The stake center is pretty long from our area and..f. I don´t know, b ut nobody went. fOh well, at least I got to hear the prophet... :D And on Friday when I got home I recieved a phone call from Fátima and Letícia! That made me happy!!!!

I´m waiting for your cards to get to me, also waiting to send cards because the post office is on strike... What a pain for a missionary isn´t it?

Conference was great!!! FOr the few people that were at the stake center watching it. Ha. :D Between the sessions on Sunday we went to the River (Guaiba) And took pictures (looks lieke the ocean doesn´t it.) That´s really my only cool news!

last story, so. After conference yesterday we were trying to go home right... Right. Well My grandpa (Elder Vianas trainer) Was with us and told us that this bus would get us home. We believed him...A After about 15 minutes we realized that wasn´t happining and we were headed for the central! SO, hereés this photo. In the end we had to go to the central, then take another bus to get home. We were on the busés for about 2 hours last night! That´s the only kind of cool story that i have. ANd, the picture didn´t turn out so great becuase the bus was moving.

this is the guy that trained elder Viana (My dad) He married and is now living in this stake
