Cefer baby!!!!! my 2nd and last transfer gere in the Cefer Ward and I couldn't be happier!!!

Last Monday we had to leave the LAN house early to get home before the Brasil game started (G-MA said to me in a letter last week that, seeing  as how I am in a poor area that maybe the cup excitement isn't as bad.... well, to answer that question, it might be worse because nobody has anything better to do than drink and watch futbal!)

On Tuesday we had district meeting that ran late so we cancelled our lunch and ate at a restaurant with the Elders from Intercap (they have basically infinite credit at a restaurant by the church)  We then used our list of members the whole day to help divide the stake! (we had to finish this week!)

Wednesday lunch with Irma Suzete before using the list until we went to Ana Paula's house.

Thursday, lunch with Celia (she didn't know about it even though we talked to her daughter on the phone the night before. Though I won't complain because I was able to see a good part of the USA vs. Germany game while we waited (USA USA USA!!!!!)  we then used the list until we got lost in the vila and went to visit members to have them help us. (asking them if they knew anyone)

love ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, here we go!!!! week 1/2 of the world cup!!!

On Tuesday everything was normal because the cup hadn´t started yet, we had lunch with our ward mission leader (even though he wasn´t home, it was just with his wife) We taught Maria and Milo and spent the day cleaning up the ward list (We have a job to divide the stake here in Partenon/Viamo. The only problem now is that the Partenon side (Where I´m at) that the preisthood to member ratio is too low. So to help with that every ward on this side of the stake is going to everyones house on the ward list and seeing if they still really live there and haven´t moved or died. So, that´s what we´ve been doing for about 2 weeks now.

Wednesday we had lunch with Eliane again, same as on Sunday, (I do like her, she is very nice)

Thursday... Here comes the problems, we worked until 3:30 then we had to be off the streets studying until 1 hour after the game ended (Rule all through out Brasil, kind of sad isn´t it) So, that was our day. For some reason today was REALLY hot...

Friday: I thought that it was just going to be hard to work on the days of Brasil games but boy was I wrong. Starting at 1 is the first game, then games go basically non stop until about 10, and everyone that´s home stays inside glued to the tv... It´s even worse than I thought it was going to be. It doesn´t help that it rained a TON today.

Saturday, different day same story... Lots of rain, lots of games. We had a ward activity in the morning but it got cancelled because of the rain, which we didn´t find out until we got there.

Sunday! We got a new phone, now we can talk to people again!!!! I got a cup cake from Elder Melo (He got them for his bday.) At night we went to the Stake President´s house becuase his wife (Rosangela) Had some grocerys for us. As we were there getting our snack on President Suffert (Stake president) And President Castro walked in... haha, oops. They were visiting people in the stake. But luckily Rosangela new that it was possible that P. Castro would go over so she invited some friends for us to teach. She saved our skin!Â

GO USA!!!!

Ps tell dad happy fathers day and that I love him!

on tuesday (sorry the shift button isn´t working) we had lunch with natalina then we had a normal day of making new investigators

wednesday the zone leaders came to our house early in the morning to give us big news (becuase we don´t have a phone at the moment) Elder bispo and i will be training wait, what? Well, we went to the mission home at 3 after lunch with the stake president to meet our children haha, we will be working with  couple missionaries and helping them learn the area and the ward. elder and sister dornelles from santa maria, rs, brasil. after the meeting with president we went with them in the car to show them a little bit of the area. i think i could like this, they´re super funny,. and it´s nice to have a ride places. haha.

Thursday the zone leaders went to our house to do weekly planning with us, then to start our division. i went with elder menezes to their area and elder bispo stayed in cefer with elder thiago.

friday; we had zone conference in the morning, then after lunch it was my first day of work with the couple well,  now the bad news.;( looks like elder bipo worked them too hard on thursday becuase only elder dornelles came, and he just came to tell us that they weren´t going to stay with us because the area is too difficult for them... (we were ready for that because we knew it isn´t a good area for them) elder dornelles went with us though to visit one family before he went home to be with his sore wife. haha.

satrday i went on a division with elder melo (in my district) to help him out because he´s not doing so well.
he´s supposed to get hernia surgery, but it´s taking too long, there´s problems at the hospital. it was a goodish day.
