Hows everyone doing? hope everyone is doing well! Sorry about last weeks email, but we had to hurry and catch the last bus out of town. Seems like we are always running to try and catch the bus. Anywho, this week was pretty good! spent a good portion of it in porto alegre, but thats alright, we got to have some great experiences there. 

Monday-Tuesday we spent in Porto Alegre. Elder villena had a meeting with all the leader ship in the mission, and of course as his companion I got to tag along.  Monday night was pretty awesome! the temple here in porto alegre just completed a lodging facility to help the member here had the opportunity to do more temple week. Well, turns out on Monday was one of the first days it was open and we got the opportunity to stay their! Its all Americanized and that was waaayy nice. Clean beds, clean showers, and a wonderful thing called air conditioning. needless to say I slept like a baby. The best part was we got to go through the temple on Tuesday morning. The temple here is very similar to the temple in kona Hawaii, where I was able to go through for the first time. It was cool!

Friday we had another meeting in porto alegre. This time with our zone. Got to see some old friends while I was their (elder efros) and listen to a bunch of training and talks. It was pretty good day! always nice to have a day to recharge our batteries to continue to teach. 

The rest of the week was spent on the usual missionary grind! This week our lessons just seemed to click and we had a lot of success. Heres some cool stories from this week. 

On Wednesday we were out walking to a investigators house when we ran into one of our old investigators and Her less active husband. They were one of the first families we had the opportunity teach here in cachoeira, but for some reason they we lost contact with them. We had been trying to contact them but for some reason were unable. anyways, we ran into them in the street and started talking to them when they started shareing something amazing. Turns out they had been going through some extreemly hard things the days before with their daughter. She was in the hospital and had been really really sick. While they were in hospital they began pleading with god to let her live. She had contacted some kind of virus and their wasn't much the doctors could do for her. As they finished their pleading with god the a nurse walked in a stated that she didn't see anything wrong with the child. All the vitals were normal and everything that they had been monitoring seemed to go back to normal. the Doctors did some more tests and found out the it was like nothing was wrong. anywho, this couple had just been thanking god in prayer and were going to pick up their daughter when they met us. The father then broke down crying and just kept saying that he knew what he needed to do now, that the spirit had manifested to him that he needed to bring his family into the church because his daughter had some important work to do and this is why their daughter was healed. It was a pretty cool experiance and now we a  appointment every other day to teach his wife! 

anyways, thats all I got htis week.

Love you all!

Elder Heiner
