September 12, 2016

This week we were able to visit a lot of people! Of the 15 people that I said we had to visit last week, 6 of them agreed to come to church and 4 of them actually ended up coming. We do not have a car and the 4 people each live in different houses that are not close to each other. So to actually get them all to the church was difficult. We went and got two of them and then walked to church with them and then left them with the other sisters, left again to get the other two and then walked again with them back to church! Lots of walking! But it is all worth it because we got them to church!!! 

One day we walked about 4 miles... actually more like 10. We walked all the way to one side of the border (of the area) to meet with one of our investigators and then had a meeting on the opposite side with another investigator! A LOT OF WALKING!!! But, like I said before, I don´t mind all the walking when we are actually able to meet with the people here! 

The best parts of my day usually revolve around food. Everyday the members feed us, but if we don't have a lunch appointment we go back to our house and make couscous. Wednesday we had a zone conference and then after we had lunch with the Mission President that seriously was the best food I have ever had. Then that night we had a ward activity... with more food. Thursday we have our weekly free hamburger at Doge Doce. Friday there was a wedding for someone in the ward (more food). 

On Saturday morning we had the opportunity to take one of our recent converts, Antonio, to the grounds of the Curitiba Temple. It was wonderful and the Spirit was so strong even on the outside of the temple. 

On Saturday night we went to visit a member and she gave us this Christmas flavored soup, and they had a ukulele that they let me play!!! We always have the best conversations with them and their family is so strong and the spirit is so strong in their house. The husband said "I want people to come to my house and feel something different than what they feel right outside the gate. We always try to make sure the spirit is here in our home."

``Even though we may feel lost in the midst of our current circumstances. God promises the hope of his light - He promises to iluminate the way before us and show us the way out of darkness`` -Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Love you all! 
Have a wonderful week!
