week 23 

This week was really good! First off, the World Cup started on Thursday, and President said that we needed to stay inside our houses when Brasil plays. So Thursday, we worked in the morning, went to lunch, worked for a bit more, and went back home and studied. It was pretty cool though because we could tell when Brasil scored by the screaming in the neighborhood. I sent a picture of me on Brasil´s game day when we stayed inside.

Missionary wise, we met a really awesome family this week a mom, her son (wesly), and the moms sister. We taught them twice, and they committed to church. But then on Friday, the mom said she is going to northeast Brasil for 15 days so that was disappointing. The mom´s sister is new to the area and doesnt know where the church is so shecouldn't  go. 

We are teaching another really cool family also. Irmã Antonio and her husband João. They committed to being baptized in 3 weeks! But they have a problem going to church. We passed by their house yesterday before church, and they said they couldn't go because of one reason or another. 

Story of the week: This week we searched for more Less-active members. So first, here in Brazil some houses have the same addresses for some reason. We went looking for one member, and the address was to this huge house. And we were like this cant be right... but we went and the member didnt live there. a probably 16 year old girl said if we couldnt find the member, we could come back and teach them. And I guess the member moved because we couldnt find the house. So we went back and taught the girl and her probably 20 year old friend. After we started teaching, the mom came in and was saying things like ´´we already know everything, we dont need y'all.´´ Then we explained we are sharing The Gospel of Jesus Christ, from the bible. And she was stunned anddidn't  know what to say. We invited her to sit down and listen to the message, but she went to her room. When we taught the 2 women, the spirit was so strong! One of the girls accepted baptism in 3 weeks! Haha it was so awesome! They could feel the Spirit for sure. 

Anyways, I found out last night that im getting transfered. My new area is called Cáceres. Its a 14 hour bus ride from where i am right now. I leave Sinop in a couple hours. Ahhh im going to miss this city. I love all the people here. They were my first family in brasil! But i know the Lord needs me in Cáceres now. 

This was my week. and I love you mom!
