This week was great, it rained... a lot. My shoes were soaked and that's not really what you want waking all day long. But in spite of the rain it was great. At the beginning of the week I did a companion switch with an elder called Elder Batista, he's our district leader here and he is from Fortaleza which is in the northeast of Brazil. People from the northeast of Brazil are a blast, they laugh all the time and are just a happy people. I also had a chance to talk with president Canuto, we have interviews ever now and then and it was a great chance to hear him give advice for my life.
These past few weeks have been great, elder D. Silva and I were knocking on doors and found a young lady named Carina. We shared the story of the restoration with her and she loved it, this past week she went to church with us and asked us if she could get baptized. It was a surprise and so this next week we will have the baptism. We are excited. She had her father pass away recently and the Plan of Salvation really hit home to her.
I'm doing great and loving the city of Santa Barbara. I will have 6 months here soon and i think that my time is coming to an end at the end of this transfer, which is in two weeks. I'm glad to be here and a part of the Piracicaba Mission.
