Enseada - Week 10


The best thing from this last week...teaching Joel's mom, Lurdes, she's really cool. For you to get an idea, she looks EXACTLY the same as Joel. Just with a lady face. It's super funny. She's also in that grandma mode, so she always gives us snacks and stuff. Plus she lives by herself, so she talks...a LOT. But it's okay. She said a prayer in the last lesson, and she said "I will participate (in the church), I want to participate", so that was AWESOME. Me and McCain just did a silent fist-pump during the prayer :) Just kidding, but we did it in our heads I think. I did at least.

Lots of good stuff happened. I dry-cleaned my suits for the first time (56 reais, but worth it) in my entire mission (ick), and it turned out really nice. Also, we had lunch with Angela on Friday and then with Magda on Sunday. It was the bomb. Magda made this awesome pasta with white sauce, oh my. One night, they also made caldo verde for us. Ask Dad if he ever had that.

And also this past week, two of the travelling Elders stayed in our house. That's a new thing that President Cabral invented, all the missionaries who are going home this transfer or the next are basically just travelling around the entire mission, passing in the areas and then just working there for a day, or two, and they just get new references and investigators for the missionaries in that area. So Elder Lucas and Elder Evans stayed with us for like 5 days. They're super cool. So I liked that a lot. It was a good week.

Yes, it's been raining a lot, which is AWESOME. I like just walking around in my capa de chuva [raincoat]. :) It's been great. Oh, the bishop took us to Pizza on Wednesday night. It was good, but it made me miss American pizza. Although, do they have dessert pizzas at like Domino's or whatever? Chocolate pizzas? :D

Something I learned this week. I learned that even when we do things our own way, instead of the Lord's way, we can still have success or happiness for a short period, but in the end the only correct way to do it is the Lord's way. That is the only way that everything will truly work out.
