Another week Gone. Strange, não é? So this week we talked to a lot of people as well. Also, Believe it or not, this week is Transfers yet again. Wow, how time flies. We'll see if I'll stay here, or if I'll have a new companion and all that jazz tonight. I'll let you all know next week. Other than the transfers, there really isn't much exciting. Ha. We are working with some less active families, and working with a lot of pesquisadores that hopefully will progress, and in the end, be baptised. We are planting a lot of seeds. I went into a favela this week for the first time in my life, and that was cool. Nothing happened when we were there, and the Lord protects us. Ha. Its nothing to worry about though. Elder Nogueira and I are working hard, and we are really trying to help people to come unto Christ. That goes perfectly well with the scripture that I want to send home this week. It is Ether 12:41. We truly need to "Seek this Jesus". All the Prophets since the beginning of time have prophesied about Christ. Truly there is only one path to return to live with God in His Presence, and that is through His Son, Jesus Christ. While all of the religions in this world are trying to get to God, God is reaching to us through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As missionaries, we don't preach about a church, we preach about the the Kingdom of God, which can only be obtained through God's authority. This authority, was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and only the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have this authority. If we follow and seek this Jesus, by being baptised and enduring to the end, we will have eternal life through His grace. I love you all, and hope that you all have a great week.

PS: I heard something about a postal strike, and that's why last year the mail took so long about this time of year. I don't know how it will be this year...    As for things being up to date here:  yes, they do have big TVs and stuff, but I'm pretty sure they are very expensive. Its a small house with a big TV type of stuff. Only the really rich have dishwashers, and that's not very many ...  They don't have very many clothes dryers here either.  But otherwise it is up to date here. As for Halloween, they do have a "Day of Witches" which is their Halloween, but its not celebrated too much.
