9 March 2015

The pinewood derby is coming up again already: Thats seems like it was just here! Its was always fun to do the Pine Wood Derby, but it always seemed like one of the Fordhams would win, so kinda took some of the fun out of it:)  That sounds like it was a fun birthday part.  I don´t know if they ate more than us.  I remember my 16 year old party, we ate a bunch of food for that.   Did they say who the guest conductor would be for Zachs concert.  That would be cool to see who it is. 
  This week was pretty normal.  P day we made taco salad for lunch as a district.  It turned out pretty good.  The meat here is a little weird so it didn´t turn out exactly like it does in the US, but it was still really good.  Monday night we got to go to a Family Home Evening with Irmão José who is super cool.  He owns a restaurant that sells some of the biggest and best burgers that I have ever seen. Anyway we had a family home evening there with one investigator that he introduced us to whose name is Ezekiel.  He is 19 years old and is super interested in the gospel.  Its really cool to see him so interested and have such a thirst for the gospel.  Tuesday was District Meeting which went well.  We are teaching a lady whose name is Luani and she is the daughter in law of a member who we had lunch with which is who we met her.  She is also very interested in the church and we are excited to be able to be able to teach her.  Its cool to see how much she wants to learn about the gospel. The rest of the week was pretty normal.  Taught a bunch of lessons this week.  Geneleza is not really progressing anymore.   She didn´t go to church this Sunday and this makes it a few weeks.  Samuel and his family didn´t go as well.  We´ll talk to all of them this week and so whats going on.  Hopefully they´ll all be able to go to church this next week.  So cool lesson trick I learned this week from Elder Sanderson.  So you take a cup and you explain to everyone this that it is the world.  Then you take a handful of pepper and tell everyone that they are sins, and that the world is full of them, pouring the handful of pepper inside of the cup without mixing the water and pepper, just letting the pepper float on top.  Then you get a volunteer and ask them to dip their finger in the water and take it out without getting pepper, or sin on it (the key to this is that the top of the water is completely covered in pepper).  They will try it and will fail, getting pepper all over their finger.  Then doing putting a drop of liquid soap on your finger, secretly or publicly, your choice, tell them that it is through the power of the holy ghost that they can live in the world, but not get covered in sin, and proceed to dip your finger in the water and watch what happens.  Its pretty cool.  We used it on an investigator this week and it  blew his mind, really funny to watch!Sunday night I got to play piano for a devotional.  It was a lot of fun!  This week hopefully will be an awesome week!
 I hope that everything is going great at home! I miss you all! Have a great week!
