Workin hard, or hardly workin?

This week was CRAZY! It seemed like we blinked and the week just happened. We've been running around like a halve dead chicken. Its been good, But even with all the work that we've been doing, We still failed to get all of our investigators in church this Sunday. Bummer. BUT, Its alright, everything happens in its due time. 

Some of the highlights this week have been, 

Well, on Tuesday, and Wednesday  we went out and did divisions with victor, a young man that just moved into out branch. Victors 20 years old and is preparing to serve a mission. He just moved here from cuaiba, which is a city like 500 miles north of porto alegre. Anyways, this kid is just awesome, Super prepared to serve a mission, and just an all around awesome kid. He always gets us to laugh, and he loves coming out with the missionarys. We love taking him along because it really help us out and sometimes hes help out translating our accents,.... ahhahaha. anyways, It was a good old time. WE also had TONS of success these days. Seemed like alot of our appointment just worked out and we were able to find like 4 new awesome families. 

Friday, we worked. ATON. on friday we taught over 10 lesson in one day. It was a day super duper good. Like seriously good. And we were able to meet with some less actives that I didn't even know existed in the city. its was a good day. 

Saturday, we decided to try something different to get people to church so we spent it swing by as many people as we could to get them pumped up for church. By the end of the night, we were feeling pretty sure that we were going to have a ton of people in church... everyone said they were super excited and that they would for sure be there on sunday...  

And then sunday morning rolled around... Its pretty sad to basicly have all your work of the week mean nothing in less than 15 minutes... But! whatever, we have one more week to try and get all of the peeps in the doors of the big white building. !! 

Oh, and I gave a talk in sacrament. GULP. 

Yes, I talked in portuguese, to like 50 people, for 30 minutes. WHAT. 

originally I was only going to talk for like 10... and then the other speaker didn't show up... and as much as everyone like leaving sacrament 40 minutes early, the branch president wouldn't have been too happy about htat 

This transfer has flew by and now we are at the end of it. I'm not sure whats going to happen but theirs a pretty big chance that I'll be heading to a new area. I'm not really sure how I feel about going to a new area, whatever though.  

The one thing that I've learned from this transfer is patience. Me and elder Allen have been pounding this area to the ground. Literally working as hard as possible, and yet, we haven't seen the fruits of our work. something, that at times is pretty frustrating. The lord has a different time schedule than us. At times we want our fruit to be ready immediately, we in reality we all need to wait until fall to harvest. All though me and elder allen haven't been seeing the fruit of our labor, we both know, through dedication and work here that the lord is pleased with what we have been trying to grow. I don't know If I, personaly, will be the one that get to see this area explode, but I do know that the work that I've put in has pleased the lord. 

Love you all, have a safe week
Elder Heiner
