May 18, 2015

Sorry I'm writing late, we went to a chacara today, that's like a ranch kind of thing, not big enough to call a farm, more like a house in the forest.  Anyway, it was really cool, I feel like it's been years since I've been able to walk in the grass and climb trees and stuff, haha!  

This week was good, we were able to get some good work done and Aline and maybe Aparecido will get baptized this Saturday!
I did the little daily blurb thing, so here is it.
Monday - Stayed home, read, and slept, had zone meeting which was pretty inspired!  We went to do some visits at about 7 o'clock but none of the people we planned to visit were home so we ended up having dinner at a members house.
Tuesday - I didn't feel very good this morning, I think it was from eating dinner so late.  We visited the houses of a bunch of less active members but only a few have any interest in the church anymore, the ward is asking us to visit a lot of less actives to see who still lives in the area. It rained at night and we had a great lesson with Leonard, a young man who will be baptized June 13.
Wednesday - Spent a lot of the day searching for less actives, finding referrals, and doing street contacts to find new investigators.  We were able to find quite a few people and have some really good appointments marked for the weekend.  We had good lessons with Aline and Aparecido who should both be baptized on the 23rd.
Thursday - I forgot to write about this week...
Friday - We had zone conference from 9 to 4 and we live in the next city over so we got home about 5:30.  The train was so packed I couldn't lift my arms if i tried, haha!  We visited Leonard and Selma and her family
Saturday - We went to rehearse in the chapel this morning. Elder M. Santos is going to participate in a special young men program in Sacrament meeting this Sunday.  Only young men and young men leaders are going to talk and all of them are going to sing "We'll bring the world his truth"  and Elder M. Santos will play violin.  We had some good lessons especially with Valdinete and her family, she is a less active and their family is having some problems, but they are progressing.
Sunday - Church was great, 5 investigators ended up coming to church and the young men program was great, all the young men either gave a talk or testimony!  We did some visits and at night there was a Primary fireside with a great Primary choir, it was really cool!
So that's what generally happens in our week!
