July 15, 2013

Hello family and everyone else! 

This week we didn't have too much happen. But it was still pretty good. We had our first multi zone conference with the new mission (which was actually still all missionaries from the Ribeirão Preto mission so it wasn't too different) and we had transfers this week! I'm staying here in Recanto, but Elder Kevin is leaving. 7 of the 13 missionaries of the zone are leaving, actually. They've gotta mix together the two missions now, so there's gotta be lots of changes. We're still unsure of who our companions will be or where everyone will go, but we should know in a bit. The transfers are actually happening on Tuesdays instead of Mondays now, so that's a pretty big change. 

This Saturday, we found a new family to teach. They have 7 children. So it's a family of 9. That's a lot of people. When we contacted them, they told us that they were going to the Assembleia de Deus church, and had been there for 8 years. Which isn't a problem at all, since we're here to show people the true church, right? So we taught them the first lesson, where we talk about Joseph Smith and all that, and it goes really well. The mom and dad were really interested, which is all that really matters. When we get to the end of the message, they tell us that they had only been living in São João for 1 year, they moved from Ceará to here. When they got here, they had only gone to their church two or three times, and then stopped because they didn't like the people! And then they said they wanted to go to church on Sunday! So we arranged a ride for them since they don't have a car, but when the member got there, they were all ready, but something had just happened with the mom, so they couldn't go... That was kind of sad, but that's alright. They said they would go next week. I look forward to teaching them again!

That's about all the cool things that happened this week. But I saw a cool sign. I'll send a picture. Maybe not. The computer is being dumb.

Love you all! Have a great week!
