Sorry, fotos aren't working.  Better internet = no photos??
So, yes indeed, its been a week. So during the baptism in English that I conducted, my companion stayed there, with the other Brazilians that watched, and they understood all that they could. And as for Elder Cacchiotti, he is from Moses Lake Washington. He is a great guy. I got the Paxman Times, which was awesome. I love looking at the pictures and getting a good laugh through all the updates and things. So this week, we had a Mission Counsel with President and all the other Zone leaders. That went excellent. Also, the Wards, from our ward, gave us some Mac N Cheese, which was delicious. That was a great taste that I hadn't had for quite some time. Sister Ward went to the states for the summer now, and there are a bunch of people that are going to the states throughout the year. It is freezing here by the way ...  well for Brazil ... and after you're use to the heat. There is a family here, Familia Fusco, which they are always helping out us missionaries. They have an amazing spirit of missionary work. They brought us all snacks when there were a bunch of us stuck at the church without Almoço. (lunch, kind of, ha). We were able to watch the dedication of the Manaos Temple. The cultural part was pretty cool and enjoyable. Ha. We watched all three sessions of the dedication, and it was cool. We saw another side of President Deiter F. Uchtdorf when they went to put the mortar on the temple. He is a funny guy. It was a cool experience though. So, this week the work is pretty normal, we taught a couple that are interested, they were a reference of the Fusco's. There names are Gisele, and Marcello, and they are pretty cool. We are still working with a couple people, and area always praying for more. The scripture that I would like to share with you all today, is Moroni 1: 2-4. I am always amazed at his testimony, and we all should be standing up for the right and for Christ. And he also shows his love for his brethren. The very people that were trying to kill him, he wanted them to be able to have the joy of the gospel. Let us all strive to be better people, and better livers of the gospel in everyday. I love you all, and hope that you all have a great week.

PS: As for showers and bathrooms and things; our shower caught on fire while my companion was taking a shower. They are electric, and I guess the connection was bad. He came running out holding his towel, and I looked in the bathroom and there was a bunch of smoke. Nothing big though. It didn't even burn long, just melted the wires where they connected. We fixed it the same day though, so it was all good. I connected them a lot better this time. I hope, ha.
