Brazil and all the stuff!

Well, this week was awesome. The weeks fly by, holy moly. I've learned a good lesson this pass couple of weeks. Whenever I walk so much that my start to hurt, I just walk even harder. Now, I don't even feel pain and my companion struggles to keep up with me. But I've decided to apply this principle to everything I do. When something gets too hard to handle, just do it even harder. Awesome results will come. So heres a highlight of this dandy week:

-The sky was really cloudy one day and we were sure that it was going to rain. I felt something hit my head, and I turned to my companion and said: "Eu sentei chuva" (I felt rain). So we kept on walking for a tad and then my companion looked over at me and started laughing. I felt the side of my face and, boom. It was bird poop.

-Every in the square of the city, we set up church paintings and do an Expsição dos Quadros, where we show the photos and talk to people about the church. It's super fun. And you meet a lot of cool people.

-Bianca, our investigator that was supposed to be baptized last Saturday, wasn't baptized. :( She really doesn't pay attention and she started to get really apathetic. It breaks my heart.

- Can I get some letters please? :) They're much easier to respond to with specific questions, and I have much more time to write letters. 

-Our ward got really excited about missionary work and their totally working their tails off. It rocks and its so helpful. The best thing you can do for missionary work is to be an awesome member. 

-One of our inactive members served a mission in the north of Brazil and he says he knew an Elder Steuer. He looks about Dave's age too. His name was Elder Machado. He wants to know who Dave's mission president was. 

-Can I get a recipe for oatmeal cookies?

Alright, well I love all you guys a ton. In D&C Section 4, you learn a lot about missionary work if you study it right. It lists characteristic and attributes that we all need. Study those characteristics and practice those atrributes. The more you gain and work on those, the more miracles you will see in your lives. I promise. 

Well I love you all tons. Keep on rockin' Europe n' stuff.
