Saudade de dormir (missing sleep)
Well... that week flew by... let me tell you a little about my area....
So my area is the area of the temple and above. so if you can think of all the people that have already heard about the church and all the people that "think" that they know about the church you have the right place. Ya its kinda rough. Its hard to find someone that lives here and that wants something.. but ya we are trying our best.
the week was spent walking around, doing contacts and trying to find some cool people that would accept us :) Lets take a tour..
Some of the few places
Estado Morumbi. São Paulo Futebol Clube. Yup. my area.
hospital Albert Einstein. thats pretty sick.
Here in brazil anyone of these houses are huge. Even in the states it would be a big house. Did you count the people in the streets? Well if you saw one they dont live in my area. They just work for the rich people haha.
So we are working our tails off and we are planning trainings and still we have to keep up on our area. Most of the nights after following up we finish about 10:20. Then finding time to do anything else is impossible. I think i got to bed at 10:30 only one time this week. We had to finish up some trainings and plan for the next day and there isnt enough time to do all we need to do and still be obedient. Its a rough life.
We had a few miracles happen this week. And in this area... its really miracles...
Miracle 1: Im not sick. Its been raining the entire week and i dont use umbrellas. So im in the rain a lot. but thanks to the lord he has blessed me with health :)
Miracle 2: For new years president freed up Just Dance for our zone to have a little party. That was super fun :) and a miracle haha
Miracle 3: We did a contact with a man on the street on saturday and he said that he had been in the hospital for 32 days. He said he´d go to church... and he did :) We´ve already taught him with the Elders Quorum President and he is marked for the 24th :) besides him we had another person who came late to church saying that he wanted to get to know it. He works in piracicaba but lives here. (Koby ill be sending you a reference so that you can teach him while he is gone alright? haha) So ya another miracle! We also had 2 other people there that we took with us. So... 4 people that went to church. for this area thats super good! Last transfer the most they had was 1 so really we had a good week :)
Miracle 4: I have from 1 til 6 for pday today haha ;)
We are trying to work more with the members to get them to help us out in the proselyting. we are passing by and asking for tips to make them feel important. Also we are making them help us out on the references haha.
have a good week and happy new year :)
Our party. ice cream of jubuticaba.
my dad: Elder Cinezio is my zone leader. cool right? haha
