My district.

September 1, 2014

How are things in Brazil this week?


Do you have Elders and Sisters in your district?

Eight including me. 4 sisters, 4 elders, 4 Americans (though Elder Martinez has Hispanic parents and speaks Spanish as well), 2 Argentinians, and 2 Brazilians

How many Brazilian companions have you had on your mission?

None still.

Is that unusual?


Do you know what your release date is yet?

I will be home by the day 19 of November, if not the night of 18.

Any idea when you will find out?

Not really, the last transfer.

In what ways were you spiritually impacted this week?

Well, we had a baptism of 3 people, a whole family! that was really spiritually uplifting.

Also, one thing that I learned today that was really interesting was how to run a ward council meeting and how not to run one.

The meeting was disorganized and was a bunch of ranting about the missionary work. I will say that this is one of the most succesfull areas that I have passed, but the members were complaining. I didn't understand.

Afterwords me and the other missionaries were making comments about the meeting, and we noted a few things.

1st an organization like this needs sub organization. for example all of the organizations make the plans and go to the bishop in this meeting to seek authorization rather than ideas or bash on the work of another organization. rather than so burn, propose an alternative to build up. before you burn, seek to understand the situation.

What steps are you taking to make sure you finish your mission with as much enthusiasm as you started. This is the time that endure to the end - well comes in to play.

Don't worry, I'm just as excited as ever :P BRING ON THE BAPTISMS! PEGA FOGO PEGA!
