Apparently today is Halloween, but that isn´t really a holiday here. The store is already decked out in Christmas stuff and playing carols. Yay -.-
We taught an old, very old gentleman by the name of Morse last week and he not only promised to come to church, but he would invite all his friends. Mind you, everyone says they´ll come, but he really did! So we show up to his house and he has chairs all set up in a semi circle with 7 friends sitting around. We´d teach a little in Portuguese then he would pretty much repeat it just way more animated in Portuguese, then Xichangana (no idea on how to spell it) for the older visitors. Really crazy and kinda fun experience.
Last week was transfers and there was a bit of confusion. Elders Stegman and Griffeth did leave ;( but they didn't get replaced.... Elder Griffeth and I got `transfered` kinda to T3 A/B.... We now have 2 areas. I mentioned our area was huge before, now its freaking gigantic. When we tell people where all we work they don´t believe us. On the positive side of things, we ´inherited` some really cool families. We had 15 investigators come to church, and we have 9 with dates marked (lots working on marriage papers) Each week after this I´ll try to highlight a family and whats going on with them.
Random facts of the week:
1. We average 11-12 miles a day of walking, this weeks high was 14.1 miles in one day.
2. Frozys (330ml soda things) have increased in price from 12 Met to 15 Met on average.
3. I found a baraka that has super cold, kinda frozen, water bottles for sale. Way nice (30 Met though, but its 1500ml).
Yes I do look super tan in the photo with the family. That is because I have gotten a bit darker, and have fried a bit because I have no sunscreen... but my skin doesn't really burn anymore, so that is good. I have a pretty gross looking watch tan line, and neckline, and worse than a farmer tan farmer tan.
These are some investigators kids that like running around us. They call us Tio (Tea-oh) which means uncle. I feel old. The record for someone guessing my age is 37... Like a serious guess by an adult.
Until next week!
