Another great week! We got back from Campo Grande on Wednesday, and while we were there we met President and Sister Oliveira! They're a great couple, and they're bringing a lot to the Brazil Cuiabá Mission. Along with the training, they had individual interviews with all of the misionaries. During the training they talked about the importance of "opening our mouths" and talking with everyone about the incredible messages we bring. "There's no school like the old school" as they say. Horay for street contacts and knocking doors. Sometimes, that's just what it takes. In my interview with President, among other things he told me that I should probably decide on something to do after the mission....yet another sign that my time here in Brazil is drawing to a close.
Anyway, because of some miss-marked tickets we ended up getting a ride on the "executivo" bus back to Corumbá. It was wonderful. Slept the entire ride long.
We got right to work here in Corumbá, and finially had a break through with Gonzalo and his family. Once again there is hope for them. It won't be easy, but with the Lord's help it will be possible to help them really make these covenants with our Heavenly Father.
Among other things, our District put on a Branch Activity all about the Book of Mormon. We all dressed up as BoM characters, and I was Nefi!! I never knew you could make a costume with a blanket, towel, tie and saftey pin, but it turned out all right.
I hope everyone has a great week!
