Not much this week ... just a torn suit picture. Que Alegria! Ha.
Its Monday again, believe it or not. Ha. So, I would love to make cuscuz when I get home, but I don't know if they have it in the states. It comes in a sack, and you make it with the steam, with a plate and cloth, or in a cuscuzeira. (That's a special thing just for cuscuz). Anyways, this week, we had a mission conference with 4 zones. It was great as usual. My companion and I gave a treinamento about doing contacts, which went well. This week, we really put that into practice. We did a whole lot of contacts. (Contacts is talking with people for the first time, like in the street, "knocking" doors, ect.) Unfortunately, only a few accepted our visit, and most of them were gone when we went to their house, or they were just too busy sitting there. Life of a missionary, Ha. We were able to find three families that hopefully will progress in the Gospel, and be baptised. None of them went to church, and we'll see how it goes. We have talked to Silvio, and he is still interested in the church, he said that he likes how everyone studies there, and how you can learn a lot. He really likes the organization. He wasn't able to go to church this week, but we'll see him tomorrow. So, this week I want to pass along the scripture in 4 Nephi 1:15-16. The true happiness that we all seek, comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If we keep the commandments, we will be happy. Temporal things bring temporal happiness, but eternal things bring eternal happiness. What is this, our life, compared to eternity? True and eternal happiness comes through living the gospel, and helping others to do the same. I love you all, and hope you all have a great week.
