I am serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Brazil, Porto Alegre North Mission. I post on this blog every week, so check it out to hear about my life as a missionary!

Week 29

Last P-day all the elders in our zone grouped together and we visited a park in Santa Cruz famous for caves, waterfalls, ruins, and free-roaming monkeys. It was quite a cool experience. I can now say I´ve seen my first wild monkey in Brazil! During our hike around, I was impressed with how dense the forest is. It would only take 10 steps in to get lost. One of the coolest parts was that we could hear a ton of different wild birds, insects, and animals as we explored. We took with us a young man from the Vera Cruz branch who helped us around because he´d been there before.

On Thursday we visited Maria & Sebastião and found out that their marriage hadn´t happened! They missed the date scheduled and so they have to reschedule for another date. Sunday we had a good turn out at church with 3 new investigators. With the Lord´s help this branch will have a good amount of baptisms the next transfer.

Speaking of transfers Élder Lemes and I will stay in Vera Cruz for the next transfer beginning tomorrow. It´s the first time for both of us that we´ll have the same companion for 2 transfers. We´re excited to work together for another 6 weeks, and we have quite a few potential baptisms in the future. Happy Páscoa (Easter) everybody!
