Awwww , just another freaking fantastic week here brazil. Crazy as always, but all the same super good. This was the last week of the transfer, Pretty crazy, Ive been here in Brasil for six weeks. LOCO.
Anywho, things were good this week, to start things off on tuesday we had a MASSIVE service project lined up. Here in pelotas it is suppper humid, all the time, winter, summer, spring, fall. They also don't have any sort of ventilation anywhere, the best I've seen so far is little window Air Condition units. And those are in the super nice homes. Anywho, because of this there is mold EVERYWHERE. All the building, homes, churches, walls, have this black scum the grows. Well, to deal with the problem, they just clean everything with bleach every year. So, on tusesday, we helped an investigator scrub everything with bleach in their house. It actually pretty fun. Stink, and pretty gross, but fun at the same time.
Wednesday, was spend back on the missionary grind, visiting people, sharing the gospel. In the short time that ive been here Ive really come to love the people of Brasil. They are just sooo kind and loving. For example, we were out talking to people on the street and one of people we contacted invited us over for dinner! Unfortunately we had another appointment, but that kind of stuff is pretty much unheard of back home.
Thursday was interesting, we got a call at about 730 in the morning that our zone was going to have a ''study'' session with President Cruz at 10. So we hurried and left the appartment because it was about an 2 hour walk and we didnt have any money for the bus. #missionaryproblems. Anyways, we made it to the study session, and it was great. President is just like every other brasillian. very very very excited, loud, and crazy. It was good, I think everyone walked away with quite a bit more knowledge on what we can do to improve.
Friday was the Rodrigeuo, Alicia, and Deisie baptism! Everything went awesome. I got the opprotunity to talk about the gift of the holy ghost... in portugese, in front of 50 people. It went fine, though. or I guess so. The bishop asked me to give a talk in sacrament in two week afterwards so I guess people must have understood me. haha Oh the joys of learning a language.
Saturday- just a normal Missionary Saturday. Food. Contacts. Lesson. Walking.
Sunday, Sunday was another great day. I got to confirm Alicia in church. That was awesome, such a spiritual high that carried on through out the day. My first conferição here in brazil. Woot Woot!
With it being the end of the transfer, this morning we had transfer calls. Turns out elder Cardoso Is outta here! I be staying here in fragata, and Ill get to meet my new companion tomorrow night. Woot WOOT! Super pumeped.
I hope everyone had a fantastic week!
