May 26, 2014 - Brazil Goiania Mission - Uberaba - Week 69

Dear Family,

This week was a tiny bit stressful. Next week will be a lot better, because pretty much all of the areas in the zone have baptismal dates and will have at least 1 baptism, so that will be good, but the zone didn´t end the month that great. The zone only had 8 baptisms the entire month of May. That´s not good at all. But, the zone should have like 10 next week so that´ll be good to start off the month of June.

Ricardo wasn´t able to be baptized this week because his girlfriend didn´t leave haha. He was super sad, but it is what it is. He´ll be baptized next month. He actually gave us lunch this week, which was super good cuz he´s a super good cook (by the way, our lunch appointments with the members this week fell through EVERY SINGLE DAY. So I just had ramen for lunch every day haha (it was awful) and I took a few pictures, but I forgot my link cable haha so you´ll have to wait until next week to get them.

We´re teaching this family right now from the state of Maranhão in Brazil. They´re super humble, and we´ll baptize the daughters this Saturday, Thalita and Vanessa. We had a super spiritual lesson this week with them where Thalita got an answer that this church was true right in front of us. She was saying the closing prayer at the end of the lesson and just started bawling. She couldn´t stop and then she just ended the prayer. Ever since then, she´s been super excited about her baptism and is intergrating herself well with the other young women in the ward. It´ll be great!!

I am worried about the World Cup and how crazy it will be here. Some Elders are asking to be able to watch it. I'm like, No way! President Kuceki will not allow us to watch it. I am seeing the name of a famous Brazilian soccer player everywhere now. Naymar? Anyway I could not care less about soccer lol.

Other than that, nothing else happened. My shoe size is 10 and a half. Love you guys!
