This week was good!
I spent the majority of the week going to, being in, and returning from Chapecó for our zone meeting. We left on Tuesday morning, had the meeting on Wednesday, and returned on Thursday. So there went the majority of the week! The zone conference was good, and president talked with us about Doctrine and Convenants section 88. He also told us he received a manual from Salt Lake City, about the standards and usage of Ipads for missionaries! He said that that was all he got, and doesn’t know anything else yet. But, he says he thinks that they might be sending us Ipads soon! So, I have high hopes that in the next 10 months something happens.
On Friday and Saturday, we tried visiting some people, and ended up just jkocking doors. We taught a guy named Idézio and a lady named Nadier. They both told us we could come back, and we will be going back this week. Idézio is an old man who is pretty lonely. His family doesn’t really visit him. And Nadier was some lady who let us in because she felt bad for turning away the Jehovah’s Witnesses the day earlier. So, we taught her!
Yesterday, we were suposed to have lunch with a returned missionary and his wife, but they forgot. So, another member offered to give us lunch at his house. He lives in a city called Salgado Filho (Salty child/son) and it is 27 miles away! So, we went there, and he showed us around the small town on 4,000 people. We ate with him, and then he told us he would send us back on the 4:00 bus. But, we went there, and it turned out the bus didn’t leave until 5:00. So, we spent the afternoon out in Salgado Filho, and then took the bus back, getting back to Francisco Beltrão at 6:00pm. We then tried to visit some guy named Domingos, that we met knocking doors the day earlier, but his wife told us that he was sick. So, we knocked some more doors!
That was basically my week! We just have 2 more weeks in this transer, and two more weeks of training for Elder Aires, my companion! So, here soon I will know what will happen!
I hope you all have a good week! I will write more next week! Tchau!
Love your favorite missionary,
