Hey guys! This week was great!
First of all, we got a great referral from our district leader. His name is Luan and he is the friend of a recent convert in our district leader´s ward. He went to his friend´s baptism and became interested in the church and wanted to have the same change of lifestyle that his friend had. 2 weeks ago he was atheist, but now he´s going to church, saying his prayers, reading the Book of Mormon and says that now he can see that God really exists. He´s just a great blessing. We are also teaching his brother, Junior, who is atheist too. But is starting to pray too. Their mom supports everything and they all promised to come to church next Sunday! :D
We also got a referral from a member who´s son is a less active and got married recently. Her name is Isabel and is evangelical, but likes our church and she is way cool too. We´re going to make a goal to have her baptized in the next month and have them sealed in the next year.
These are the main two people we are working with right now. We also had a ward activity (I think this is the second ward activity I´ve had on the mission) and it was a hit! We did Master Chef Desserts! All the members brought a dessert and the people who were visiting were the judges. It was great! Isabel went and loved it and we also got a few referrals from there too. Ward activities are a great tool in missionary work (hint hint!!)
We also had a meeting just for the sister missionaries at the Mission President´s house which was cool. They had a bunch of Sisters who work at the Headquarters of the church come and give talks. It was awesome. Then they bought us pizza with the crust filled with chocolate (you will never taste anything better than pizza from São Paulo with the crust filled with chocolate, trust me.) The best lunch ever.
That´s about it for this week. I made french toast today for everyone in our house and Sister Thomas gave us maple syrup. It was heavenly. Here´s some pics. Love you all! Until next week!
