Well this week was a slightly discouraging week. We had to drop some of our investigators and other disappointed us with not coming to church. We'll push through though and everything will turn out great. We were able to do a lot of trainings and things as well with the branch so that it can be ready to be a ward here in a couple of weeks. I'm very excited to receive the stake here in a couple of weeks, it should be an awesome and spiritual experience.
Belmiro and Isabel are doing well, they are making progress with documents and we are getting them continually more integrated in the branch as well which should keep them stronger and stronger.
The power has been out this week a lot which is a real trial just because studies and other things become more difficult and uncomfortable, but it continually reminds me of all of the blessings that I have to live in a good house now and especially of the quality of America. Going home will be an insane culture shock that will probably leave me speechless for like three days straight haha. Also, this week we found another really awesome family who went to church super early and we only sat with them for like 10 minutes the first time. They have a real desire and I'm really excited to see how they turn out. Their names are Fernando and Claudinha.
This week our dryer broke (we are the only house that has a dryer) and we tried finding a new one but not even the biggest and richest shops even know what a dryer is. We do have a phone though and most of our investigators have phones too. We can call them and its no cost to them. Its a little frustrating to try to get contacts when there are a lot of people without phones but most people have them.
We actually have a really nice house, hot water, electricity and all of that. Some of the missionary houses don't have hot water but we do. All of them have washers. The power does go out all the time for long periods of time though. And when the power goes out here, the water also goes out. It's insanely hot and everyone/everything is dirty.
