Some pics of when we hiked up to the Peak of Jaraguá last P-day.
We went with some members:
Mais um of the Peak of Jaraguá. Translation:

Óppía! Another week is already gone. wow. So yes, my companion collects ties, and he uses them, but I don't know why he wants so many. Ha. Its funny though, we'll see if he uses them more than once. Ha. Elder Nogueira has been here one transfer before I got here, so he knows the area pretty well. I also went to on a division this week with Elder B. Rodrigues in Taipas. There are some dangerous areas there, but all is well, nothing happened, the Lord protects us. I don't think the size of our area is affected if we are leaders or not, its just one area that is good distance from all areas. I don't really know how they are chosen. Church here is good. We have two wards that meet in our chapel. The missionaries in our zone are spread out among a few cities. We have 6 companionships in our zone. My companion and I are working with several people to prepare for baptism. We are working with Samanta, a young women who went to church this week, and is really interested in the church, and likes what we have taught her. We also are working with Samuel, and his family, including his mother Lucimar. Samuel doesn't want to be baptised for who knows why, but they are a great family. We are always looking for more and working with less actives and recent converts. This past week we also had "Conselho de Líderes da Zona" which went really well. So This week I wanted to pass a scripture in Mosiah 18:21. We should always strive to be one. Especially in the church. We can help all our Brothers and Sisters and show forth our love for those around us. When we are united, we are strong, and we can do anything. God loves all of His children, and wants us all to be happy. I love you all, and hope you all have a great week.
