Tuesday, June 24th, 2014 Elder Anderson's birthday!!
20! Wow, I´m still me! I will celebrate by going out and marking a bunch of people to get baptized. We also had our district meeting today. Opened my package yesterday and was way excited about the pancake mix, and so are my other companions in the house. Loved the pictures too. I have been thinking about getting a Brasil jersey (with birthday money). Brasil is doing pretty good in the cup, they beat Camaron and Croasia, and tied with Mexico, they will play again on Saturday or Sunday which is going to mess with our week because of yesterday and then another day without work will mess a lot of things up. But its fine, one of our housemates went to the temple with investigators and got Ephraim´s rescue so we watched that 3 times yesterday. All the schools are out for a month because of the games and they get done on the 17th of July.
(In response to a question about the cost of fast food): The reason that some things look expensive is because it’s still in reais, divide it by half and you have the dollar value, Mcdonalds really is expensive here, don’t know why.
But this week was good. Had one great day and the others were all right, staying at home a lot has drained us because you just sit around and do hardly nothing so we are just really tired. This week we should have a lot going on. On Thursday our new President comes in and that will change some things. Tomorrow we have our last leadership meeting with President P, it’s going to be good. Got some really good people that we are teaching and got a lot of baptisms planned for the coming weeks. Time is flying so quickly and I can’t believe it. Almost a year ago I was in the mtc. I am sure that it will only start to pick up.
This week we entered the labyrinth in the middle of our area and that was really cool. On the map it’s just a blank space, but that doesn't exist here, so we walked in and were in there for a good thirty minutes just getting references. We also found some macumba (black magic spirit religion) pots with a sacrifice inside on the side of the road. The ceiling the chapel fell in the bathroom because the water box is broken and its leaking.
Hope ya'll are doing good. Just keep swimming!
