Holidays... in Brazil

hey yins! i´m alive still, i´m saying this because of fast sunday.. Fast sunday was so much easier at home. I didnt burn any energy there. Its a little bit different when its 115 degrees and humid.. So, there were 2 holidays this week.. lets just say that when there´s a holiday in Brasil, EVERYTHING shuts down! It was quite frustrating. I feel like i´m preaching to the lamanites sometimes. We had a baptism this week though! Rogéria was baptized on tuesday and confirmed on sunday. Elder Ribeiro baptized her (it was the same day as his birthday) and i confirmed her on sunday. We found 2 new families this week that are willing to get married and are receiving the discussions well. The first is Michel and Angelica who live one road from the church! They have a good income, she is a professor and he is a salesman. and they have 3 kiddos. The other is Mauro and Conceição. Mauro made a contact with us in the road one day so we went to visit him a few days later and to our suprise he had already read and filled out the whole pamphlet of theplan of salvation. They live in a little mud house, but have a good knowledge of the bible and doctrine. We had zone conf this week as well. It was focused on controlling stress and managing a missionary schedule. I used a few of clyde´s tactics on my companion this week (yes, it was funny). Thats about it for this week though,
Much love,
Elder Larsen
