Im seeing long sleeve shirts for a couple days :) :) i love the cold!!!!
Ya this week was pretty rough for us on the trunkiness. (trunky: to be homesick/want to go home/talk about home a lot/ready to leave) Elder Baird just left to go home yesterday. Elder Phair, my companion, will go home on the 6th of october. so ya everyone here is saying bye and talking about how it will be when they get home and so being here with them its going well. ;)
We had the privilege to have Elder Andersen come and speak to us. I was excited for the English burning but he did it in Portuguese. Yes he knows Portuguese and Spanish and french as well. Ok well it was spanguese. but still it was super cool. We talked about the atonement and about how we can help our investigators as well as ourselves with this great act of love. It was super spiritual and we all loved it.
On Sunday we had 5 people go to church and one we didn't really plan on taking but we just stopped by her house on the way and she said that she´d go super quickly. We got to church and we had a good time. Setembro should be a really good month for us. and its also Phair´s last month (are you seeing this trunkiness?) Anyway after church this lady went home without saying bye or anything so she just left and we thought she had found her way home. but we found her on the road completely lost... haha. we called a member to give us a ride home cause she is old and was really tired of being lost. plus the hot sun didn't help. so we took her home and outside of her house there was a bunch of people in white looking around and yelling her name. we got out of the car and she did too and everyone ran over and started talking to us. They thought that she was stolen and we just said that we took her to church with us and her son (who is like 40) knew she went. from 10 til 130 they were all looking for her and her family was crying and this dude was just sitting not saying anything to anyone and watching it all. So that was fun. That church is called macumba/banda. they were all in all white and they worship saints and spirits and stuff. its dark stuff and we think she is usually involved in it. When the people told her that she needed to tell someone if she was going to leave she said"im a grown woman i don't need to tell anyone" haha. she really liked our church :)
Jose was confirmed today. She is going to be a good member :)
this is a passion fruit and a papaya. in portuguese its called maracuja and mamão.

that grayish blur in the background isnt just the pollution but its a favela. basically the ghetto. pretty chill :)
