"Oh okay, come on in! I thought you were the Mormons!"

1. Working hard cause the field is white and ready to harvest!
What a great week we had! We were able to do all the paperwork for Roger and Marciele´s wedding so here in a month they´ll get married and if everything works out baptized the same day! We´re working super hard here, but our members make it easy. We basically just teach member referrals and incomplete families. For the second straight week we had 10 investigators at church so that always makes an Elder happy:)

2. The Talent Show
This week our ward had a talent show! It was a super fun activity and whatever excuse we have to open the church for investigators is great! We had 200+ people present! Well we got thinking and we put on a little skit. I dressed up as a "gaucho" and my comp tried to teach me, and I was your typical Brazilian cowboy, and everyone loved it! Then we sang our mission hymn that talks about bringing the gospel to the gauchos. It was an amazing night!

3. Zone Conference

This we put together our zone conference with President Louza! We had lots of training about the Book of Mormon, how to be better missionaries, etc. President Louza never fails to inspire us and bring a doce spirit to the room!

4. "Well, what church are you from?"
A quick funny experience. We started talking to this lady in her yard and we started explaining to her the blessings of the gospel and such and we asked if we could share a message, and she skeptically looked at us and asked what church we were from. Well of course we said The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And she said "Oh that´s okay then! Come on in! I thought you were the Mormons." Then we went in and taught her the restoration:)

Have an amazing week!
