We had a good week.
We went to Açailandia for district meeting and also to do a division, I stayed with the district leader there who is this awesome newer elder (like 8 months in the mission). I sat with him and we talked about the work he was doing and all this stuff. He is really doing great work there his district is full of excitement and love for this work. He taught me many things in the 24 hours that I stayed with him about being bold, and Excited for the work. At one point we were coming back from his city to end the division in a van with 12-13 people and he got up told them who he was, what he was doing in Brazil and where the church was. He paid attention to the reactions of the people and those he saw who were interested he got the addresses at the end of the tip. Truly an elder devoted to the lord.
This week the members from the stake left for the temple. The met at 8am at the stake center on Sunday morning and will return Saturday (20th). All were excited and happy to have the chance to go to the house of the lord to there be taught from on high. I have truly learned a great deal about the temples and their worth even though, or maybe in part because I have not had access to one for almost 2 years... It is the house of the lord. Go to the temple as often as you can.
One night as we were walking home we passed a bar that was playing Michael Jackson music and were then even more enthused when we realized that on the other side of the street.. Not completely out of the traffic there was a man dressed up and dancing like the king of pop. It was a good memory of American culture and just another reason why I love Brazil.
I hope you all have a good week!!!
Vai com Deus!!
