This week was transfer week so it was kinda crazy! We found out Elder Dos Santos (my pai) and Elder Vieira were going to leave for Natal Tuesday night. They left Wednesday morning. I did not realize how sad transfers really are. Leaving the people, members and companions is really quite hard. Not looking forward to that happening to me. I love Mossoró!
The following day it was just Elder Mauter (the other American that lives with me) and I. We cleaned the house, went to downtown with a member and picked up the new missionaries! My new companion´s name is Elder Wilson and he is American--which is really odd becuase 99% of the time a companionship of Americans never happens. He is really cool! He has 1 year and 6 months in the mission, goes home in November. From Miami, he is half black so everyone here thinks he is Brazillian. Especially compared to me haha so its fun to joke with the members and say he is Brazillian.
We have been working hard--finding new people to teach and learning the area. I had to teach him all about the members, investigators, etc. I felt pretty cool because usually I am the one following.
But since we now have 3 Americans in 1 ward, we are going to start a English class 3 times a week at the church. It is a great way to get to know the members more and they could bring friends! I think it will be super cool!
Also, something funy happened this week. Elder Wilson brought the "Insantiy" workout DVD´s. Every house has a mini DVD players used for training (watching the "District" and stuff like that). So the very first morning we did a good, hard workout--or at least I thought it was haha I have never sweat so much at 6:30 in the morning. The sun is alreay out and is around 85/90 degrees in our house. But the funny part was that for the next 5 days it hurt to walk. I was sooooo sore hahaha but now I know!!
That is all that happened this week. Love you guys and keep cool! The church is true!!
Scipture of the Week: 1 Nephi 19:23- Apply the scriptures to your life. They are not just beautiful words but life lessons!!
Fun fact: In EVERY room in EVERY house has two hooks for a hammock. No matter what house you got to, built into the brick work are two hooks on opposite sides of the wall. So I bought myself a cheap, portable hammock and I used it! Pretty cool and relaxing!
