Another Week in Brazil

Well the transfer has come and it looks like I'll be staying here for another transfer with Elder Ortiz.  This is my second to last transfer now.  Weird....

This week was pretty cool.  We had Zone Conference with President Gomes.  They talked a lot about how to work with members and how we should work with less actives and recent converts.  I got to see Elder Oliveira, my second companion here in Brazil, bare his final testimony.  I feel like everyone I once new on the mission has since gone home and I don't know any of the missionaries anymore.  Next Zone Conference I'll be baring my farewell testimony. Weird....

Speaking of conference, I'm super excited for General Conference.  Ever since I went on my mission I have gained a new found love for General Conference.  Conference gets me amped.

The other day while we were inside studying we heard a ruckus.  When we looked out to see what the said ruckus was, we saw this huge parade going down the road.  The local Catholic Church had put on a procession for Mary and there were a ton of people walking down the road with all sorts of instruments, flags, and other stuff.  They had this huge bloco, (bloco is this truck that's like 15 ft high, made entirely out of speakers, and have people partying on top.)  Blocos are usually used for parties or small concerts but they were using it to play hymns.  You don't see that everyday in Utah.

So this week we had a baptism for our friend Mike.  It went over pretty well.  We had a lot of the youth at the baptism and he was really excited for it.  He was really big so I was put in charge of baptizing him.  I wasn't quite sure that I would be able to baptize him because he is significantly taller than me.  It all worked out well in the end and the baptism went over well.

Well that's it for now.  Nothing too out of the ordinary happened this week.  Anyways, love you all.  Have a great week!
