Anothier week without photos but, that´s just because there´s not a lot of stuff to take pictures of here.
Tuesday: A normal day of work while everyone went to the bus station for transfers. :( I wanted to go to so that I could see all the people!!!) But, oh well. We did our stuff and waited patiently for Thursday to see everyone!!!!
Wednesday: We had our district meeting in the morning, a lot of new people came in... Actually, only 4 in our zone, but the other district completely chagned. And our district only changed like this (Elder Hiatt left and Elder Marshall came) for the 3rd time I´m in the same zone as Elder Marshall (Viamão, Bagé and now POA SUL) WE then had a normal day of work, kinda. WE cut our hair to prepare for Thursday, then visited Jair and Iara. We then had to go to the church to help one of the members of the bishopric with something on the computer.
Thursday: Happy Haloween!!!! WE weren´t allowed to dress up. Ç( But, we all went to the mission home for our ``Mission Tour`` With Elder Mazzagardi from the 70 and the area presidency. It was super cool, he´s funny and gave a really good training. I also saw a TON of peopl there!!!! Everyone in the North part of the mission was there. So, I saw, Elders... M. Nascimento, Fagg, Staples, F. Silva, S. Silva, Xavier, Tapp, A. Miller, Gagnon and others... But I think these are the names that I´ve mentioned before.
Friday: We had a good day of contacting new people... Including David and Carla... Why are they special?: Well, He´s a (more or less) Famous singer here in Brazil the name of his group is David and Elvis. He´s an RM that served in JOão pessoa and baptized over 300 people. Now he doesn´t go to church too much becuase he has shows on Fridays Saturdays and Sundays. Well, when we first got there he came out with a huge old bandaid on his face and everything swollen becuase he got surgery a couple of days ago. Plastic surgery becuase ``Look is 50%) And he´s got money to do it. I felt kinda at home, they have 2 cars, 2 huge tvs, a macbook (first time I´ve seen one here) and a PS3. And they eat at mcdonalds and Pizza hut a lot. We were invited to mcdonalds after his surgery heals. :D Ha!!! And for those of you who don´[t know, Mcdonalds is expensive here. WEll, he also gave us a reference that we started working with. So, I think he´s gonna stay close to us for a bit. We then had FHE with recent converts!
Saturday: we had lunch and a reunion with our Ward mission leader. Then we contacted people and went to clean the church. After that we went to A less active families house for FHE. We weatched church films and ate Mexican chili, Fish Pizza and Cake. :D We´re almost there with Paulo, though I think the problem is Andreia. Paulo is a member for a bout 3 years. He´s inactiveve for just as long. Though, he´s read the BOM 2, and knows it better than most active members here.
Sunday: Church, lunch, ward leadership meeting, rain, Paulo and Andreia again where we had cookie cake and watched more movies. :D
So, our lunch on Friday was... 5 stars. We have a family here (Cris and Morôni) He´s a chef at a restaurant and knows how to cook, really well. So we had a super good super healthy meal there with Wine! (Without alcohol... though I don´t like grapes so, whatever.)
So on church sunday they were talking about why people don´t make the HOme teacher visits..> They asked why people don´t visit in Utah... I said Because of Football games... Everyone laughted. It´s too bad that they thought I was joking.
“When the Holy Ghost brings light and knowledge to the mind, it is like He floods a room with bright sunlight. Children who grow up in active, faithful homes grow up in that sunlit room. Light and truth is all around them every day. So when the Holy Spirit begins to bring light and knowledge to their own minds, it doesn’t seem that remarkable. In some cases, it is so much like the light they have known all their lives that they barely even notice the light now found within themselves.”
