May 4, 2015 Counting down: 364 days left! haha

          364 days

well that can be a little trunky right? well if im not wrong and i did my math right, about the 3rd of may i should be home. that means this mothers day will be the first and last one on the mission. but who knows right?

So this week a lot of stuff happened. We got a short time missionary in our ward like a trial time. He will only be here for 1 or 2 transfers to see if he wants to serve full time. 

I got a package from koby with a bunch of stuff in it so that was a good birthday surprise :)

One day we were doing contacts and EVERYONE was telling me no. I was getting really sick of it and i just wanted a yes. I talked with this one lady and she gave me a thumbs down and said "im atheist and i dont like God", as she walked past me. I turned around and yelled after her, "Well then GOOD LUCK!!!" it was kinda nice and helped me feel better. but she isnt going anywhere nice after this life. 

We did however have 1 investigator who is progressing. Her name is Karina. She is married and has a daughter. We taught her the restoration and she understood the first time. Like thats is hard to find. Also when we came back she was asking us more about joesph smith and what happened. We showed her a video and she was a lot happier with the response we gave. She said she would like to go to church so we are still working closely with her. (the last church she was in is called the ´snowball´ church.... Go Brazil!)

On friday we had a devocional with Elder Christofferson. That was really cool :) We were able to shake his hand and ask him questions and he taught us about D&C 6:9. Say nothing but repentance. Also some other things but most of it was based out of this scripture. It was really cool and really spiritual :) 

Good news! After the devocional we came back to our house and we had energy again! that was a miracle only an apostle could have done ;) haha. 

We ended the week good. On saturday we had a member from heaven take us to Outback. Now.. i know outback in the states isnt too fancy. but here its like a big deal. They had the same break with butter, buffalo wings with hot sauce, cheesy fries with bacon on top, and RANCH!!!!! that beautiful white dipping sauce that doesnt exist here. Also we got some ribs smothered in BBQ sauce and it was so freaking delicious :) Also we each drank about 1.5 liters of coke so that just made us all happy. i didnt want to leave cause it reminded me so much of home. Also the member that took us is an american so we just spake english. Man that was the best lunch ive had here in Brazil. 

anyway i hope this week goes by smoothly for you guys and that you have success with whatever you are doing. 

Com amor,
Elder Kyson Sullivan

They are trying to "bring more water to the city of Osasco" so they destroyed all the sidewalks and leave them looking a lot like this. but its alright cause theres a pipe in there now. How do you like that dad? haha
