As usual i wake up at 6:30 and get ready for the day. Usually we read and study the bible and the Book of Mormon from 8-10 but you already new that. Whats different here in Brazil is the walking. Right now i think we walk about 7-8 miles per day. I had one day I was working with another elder and he got lost in his own area, we walked for about 13-14 miles that day... needless to say I wasn't very happy. But we walk a lot. We decided where we are going to work in the city depending on where we have our lunch appointment. Usually we eat lunch with some members of the church. As I've said lunch here is the biggest meal of the day. After that we head out into the city to try to change lives. I will admit the Brazilian people are way more open to listen to us than American culture but here are still a lot of people that don't want to listen to us. Thats probably the most anoying thing, we come on missions and give up 2 years of our lives to help people change their lives for the better and they dont recognize it. But I don't feel to bad about it because when you find someone to listen, all the rejections fall away. We had some miracles this week, we have two couples come to church, they love the services and they will come next week. They are named Nelson and Patricia, and the other couple is Anderson and Carina. I hope to help them progress.
I read this scripture today and i thought i would share it with you its from the Book of Mormon.
“For my soul delighteth in plainness; for after this manner doth the Lord God work among the children of men. For the Lord God giveth light unto the understanding; for he speaketh unto men according to their language, unto their understanding.”
--2 Nephi 31:3
Thats about it.
