this week went just fine! we had some good lessons and busy times doing office work! monday we had a few things to do around the office but once we left we were finally able to find a family that we had taught a few months ago. antonia diogo edmundo and jaqueline! we taught them the restoration and we had commentary from many view points because of the mixed religious backgrounds but there was a spirit felt by all! in the end Edmundo said that he was feeling very good and really enjoyed hearing our message! the first time we had visited they werent so open to us hahah so we can see the progress we are making and the way the Lord opens up that hearts of the people.
tuesday was a normal day nothing of great import. imagine me speaking with people in the street and typing things on a computer. wednesday was also fairly bland but i had a call with the people from the reference center in the provo MTC. gave me some good training about how to better pass the media references or from members to the missionaries.
thursday we had a lesson with Sara and her niece and friend. Tiago went along with us and we taught them about the Book of Mormon being another testament of Christ. it was a cool lesson and we were able to meet some new gators. Sara was a reference from Haziel, who is doing well.
friday we visited vivaldo and his family and had a long chat about.. fruit. they had some weird orange coconut they got from their farm but they didnt know its name. but once we started going, Vivaldo told us that he really had a desire to be baptized and loved going to church with us. we were trying to set a date with him but its a little difficult because of some stuff with his "wife" (not actually married). apparently for like 30 yeras she wanted to get married but he didnt and now he wants to but she doesnt! love it!
reading the scriptures this week i was really inspired by King Benjamins speech and how amazing the teachings are. dude was a good guy and loved the Lord! we can always benefit from humbling ourselves and being unselfish and more loving towards others.
