So first off with transfers. The first area of my mission was called Embu das Artes and it included another municiple called Itapecerica da Serra. A couple of transferes ago it got divided into two zones. So they almost sent me home (mission lingo here for first area) because now I am in Itapecerica with one of my old dl´s from my first transfer as a zl. His name is Elder S and he is from Kansas with one year and 7 months, this is his 2nd full transfer as a zl and my 3rd, so we are both new and crazy. We have a great zone with alot of potencial and we are going to make this place fly. We live with one of the dl´s from Ecuador and another elder from the states. We had 3 baptisms in our area this week and 6 confirmations and I got to do 3 of them which was cool because it was the first time that I have done it on the mission.
So for the world cup every time that Brazil plays we have to stay inside, so last Thursday I think we stayed home and tomorrow too and next Monday so I will email on Tuesday. It’s not too crazy when they are playing, every time they get a goal they light fireworks and go crazy for a couple minutes, but when they win they have huge parties and everyone gets drunk and we had a few fights outside of our house the other day. But we are all good at home, live on the second story so we are probably safe. They have a lot of English stuff here because of the people that come here for the games. The trains talk English with a Brazilian accent and it’s really funny. This week we started teaching a guy and he prayed and said that the response was like someone was talking to him, which we got really excited about that. We also saw the missionaries from São Paulo oeste (I think means West here) because our area makes the division with them. HAPPY FATHER`S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love ya’ll have a great week!
