FAMILY!!!! How are you all doin?? This week went a lot better than the last one! haha thats for sure! It is rough opening a new area. We dont have a lot to work with so we have been making tons of contacts, talking to everyone! The people here in Biguaçu arent super open to hearing about the gospel, but we have found some that are accepting of a visit in their house.
We got stopped by a lady named Renata who has a husband and two kids. She asked us more about family search, so we are going to meet with her tomorrow. We are going to to help her tomorrow, as well as teach her the first lesson. She said that she practices a little bit of Budhism, so it should be interesting!
We also made a contact with a lady named Sonha. She said that her daughter had heard a little bit about the Mormons from a friend of hers. Before we could even ask to come to her house, she invited us. We went there the next day like we had planned with her but we couldnt find her house. Everyone we asked didnt know where she lived. We asked so many people in the neighborhood. Then we decided to say a prayer that we could get a hold of her. We kept askin around and askin around, and we were lucky to find a lady who knew exactly where she lived. We went to the house and her cousin gave us her phone number cuz she wasnt home. We called her and we hope to visit her this week. The Lord answered our prayers cuz we were able to get a hold of her.
Other than that, we are trying to find more and more people to teach! I have never walked so much in my life and I have never climbed taller hills! haha. But we will keep talking to everyone and find the people who are looking for the gospel. Yesterday we had a stake conference and I played prelude and the opening hymn on the piano for everyone. I was nervous out of my mind! hahah. Austin and Hayden, Practice Practice Practice. Especially hymns. Mom and Dad were always right when they said I'd use it on the mission. I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week! I cant wait to call home in less than two weeks! Tell Morg that I love her too!
