Hey guys! Sorry in advance if this email is extremely boring!
This week went well and fast. Our mission president is putting a lot of emphasis on making our priority every day finding one new person to teach. It might not seem like it, but it is a pretty hard goal! So, on Monday we went out after 6:00 to find someone new. We did end up finding a woman named Sueli, and taught her. We haven’t been able to find her at home since, so I hope we have more luck later.
On Tuesday, we went to visit some people we had already taught before. Unfortunately, no one was home. So, we went looking for someone new to teach. We found a guy named Jonny, and taught him. We also have not been able to find him at home again, so I really hope we have more luck this week.
On wednesday, we left early in the morning with the elders from Pato Branco for Chapecó. We had a zone meeting on Thursday, so we had to leave early Wednesday morning. We got to Chapecó and stayed in the missionary apartment there the rest of the day. The elders from Pato Branco and us decided to go to a Rodizio of Pizza (endless pizza buffet) because we were all hungry and pizza is good. We ate soooo much pizza, and I was really full. The elders from Pato Branco had a competition between each other to see who could eat more pizza. They ate so much pizza, and started to complain about how much it was hurting after we left. We stopped at a farmacy, bought some medicine, and went back to the apartment. They took the medicine, but both ended up puking up the pizza. I thought it was pretty funny!
On Thursday, we had our zone conference with President Silva. I got a box from the primary back in Boone, and that was awesome!!! After the Zone conference, we took a 4 hour bus ride back to Pato Branco with the Elders from there and stayed the night.
On Friday, I did a baptismal interview for the elders in Pato Branco, because that was why we went to Pato Branco after the zone conference and not Francisco Beltrão. Then we ate lunch with them and spent the rest of the day there.
On Saturday, we got up and took a bus back to Francisco Beltrão. We then spent the day trying to visit some people that we had already taught. We managed to teach Nilce again, and this time her husband was there, so we found a new person to teach for the day!!
On Sunday, we went to church and had the branch conference. All of the people from the stake were there, so there was a decent amount of people there. Our lunch appointment fell through, so we ate lunch with all the people from the stake. The branch members had made food for them since they had to spend the rest of the day traveling. There was a ton of rice left over afterwards, and they sent us home with it. That was good, because that will last us a while!
That is basically how the week went! It was the second week of this transfer. 4 more to go! I will let you guys know what happens this week! Have a good week!
Love your favorite missionary,
