so this week i walked in the flaming hot sun everyday! i talked to people in portuguese, i got really sunburned and realized just how white i really am, we worked real hard, with little sucess.. but nothing new there! haha
now ill give you the details!
so this week was a real stuggle to find new people to teach! we did everything you can imagine to try and find people! we decided to do a fast on saturday.. (well it was fast sunday and here in brazil the main meal is lunch so we start our fast saturday after lunch!) but we had a pretty good day planned, we had done contacts and had planned with a few people to pass by there houses that day! so we were going around to our planned events and we had this one around 4 in the afternoon that looked really promising, when we close to his house we saw him running away, drunk! so that was a bummer.. i was pretty down, walking away from his house when his neighbor waved us down and told us to come in and teach her! she told us how she wanted to follow christ and how she had talked to missionaries a while back and she had invited them to come and teach her, but they never showed! she was really interested and told us how our message had answered many answers that she and her husband were looking for! it was real legit! some times the lord works through the drunks to get us to the people who are ready to accept what we have for them! it was a real cool experience!
went to a churrascaria here.. ate soo much meat that i think i might xplode! there is no way that it was good for me.. but it was really good so..... what do you do?!?
we have been having lots of sucess with Auracele. she is married to a less active member and they have been having lots of dificulties with there marriage! we have been helping her try to realize how followin christ can help her and her family be more united and have something that they can found their family upon, the Gospel. we have been teahing her lots this week and have had lots of really awesome experiences there! hoping this week to work more with Ricardo, her husband and try and reactivate him to help save their family! makes me real greatful to know that my family has an eternal perspective of things and that this helps us work through our differneces and disagreements, and to work together towards our eternal purpose!
