This week was super awesome because I got to talk to the zone leaders of Guaripiranga, my last zone, and they told me that one of my investigators got baptized! Don’t know if ya'll remember T, we went to the temple with him, I think that I sent some pics, any way he disappeared for a little bit and I didn't get to talk to him again and then this week I find out that he got baptized! So that was awesome! Council was sweet too, love helping make decisions for the mission and receiving instructions from President. Then on Friday we had follow up by the assistants and we were stuck in traffic for a good hour getting back. On Saturday we helped in a move, it was incredible the difference that there is between moves there and moves here. I don't know if it is because I have only know LDS moves or if it’s an American thing but we showed up and there were a bunch of guys drinking and just talking and a pile of stuff to be moved to another house on top of the other. We helped a little but then had to go. My companion and I were at a loss about what to do, ask if we can help and they say that they are managing. Don't know if they were talking about downing all the beers or moving the stuff. But anyway I am very grateful for the sense of responsibility that there is in the church. My voice got back and we are staying warm, found a suit coat that an elder left and it makes a great coat. This week I was sleeping and started hearing a ping, thought it was nothing, but turns out I have a leak almost right above my head. Luckily we were able to get a bucket and a cloth and it’s a slow leak so that's good. Thinking about moving houses next week. This week there were so many times that I felt physically weak and then I received physical strength. I know that God gives us the strength that we need to help his kingdom. I know that he is blessing our family, and will continue to do so, if we obey all of his commandments. Read scriptures and pray together every day. Love ya'll and have a great week with graduation! Love ya'll!
