Well, this week was hot!! Summer is definitely coming.
On Tuesday, we taught two friends of a less active youth in the branch. One of them, Gabrielle, was interested in the church. We taught them about the restoration, and gave her a pamphlet and The Book of Mormon. She said she likes to read, so she would read a lot of it!
Wednesday was a holiday. It was a holiday where people go to the cemetaries and leave flowers and stuff like that. I figured it was similar to Memorial Day, and we decided to go to a cemetery to find people to teach about the plan of salvation. It sounded like a good idea, until we got there and I discovered that it is a Catholic holiday, we were in a Catholic cemetery, and it was pouring rain. People weren’t staying there too long, and it wasn’t giving time to talk to the people. They were busy doing prayers and lighting candles. So, we didn’t have too much success there.
We spent Thursday and Friday in Pato Branco for our district meeting, and went to a family home evening with the elders there. We were helping an 11 year old boy complete some Faith in God requirement about learning about the restoration of the priesthood. We acted it out in a theatre-like setting, and then we all ate pizza together!
On Saturday, we walked a long way to get to where we had been teaching some people, and tried to see if they had been reading what we left. We weren’t able to find a lot of people home, so we spent some time knocking doors to try and find some new people to teach. We found a couple that let us in and heard our mesage, but that was it. The day was full of sun, heat and walking!
Yesterday we tried to go visit a few less actives and try to share a message, but none of them were home!! So, yesterday wasn’t too eventful.
This last week was the 4th week of the transfer, and we are now into the 5th week. The transfer is coming to a close, and the time of hearing about transfers is coming up!! I will let you know how this next week goes!!! Hope everyone has a good week!!
Love your favorite missionary,
