Monday- We sent Sister Whipple off to Lucas...it was really sad. :( But after we went to the family night that we had planned. It was fun and everyone asked about her.
Tuesday- I went back to the doctor to show him my ultrasound results and he said that there was a lot of gas in my stomach so he gave me some medicine to take and told me to come back in 2 weeks. Then after that we went and visited Marli and Armando! :)
Wednesday- We had a district meeting, it was fun! WE now have 10 people in our district!! Then after lunch we went to do some visits but NO ONE was home!!!! We even went to their houses twice!! But we managed to find one person so we taught her and then we did some contacts and taught them and then we went to a family night at Luzia's house.
Thursday- We did contacts again.....we found this girl named Alexandra and we taught her about the restoration. She is really awesome! She said that she really likes us. :) A mission isn't all about making friends but it really makes you feel good when you know that they like you. :) After that we went to the church and taught an English class to Armando and Marli. :)
Friday- We literally spent ALL day doing contacts!!! It was VERY tiring!!!! We went to every house on this road......
Saturday- Today we visited with inactive members and then went to the church for the English class. :)
Sunday- Mother's Day!!!! :D And we had a fun experience at church when 2 missionaries from this new church called A Igreja Adventista Renovada Laodiceia. They came in because Bishop invited them when they stopped by his house and started talking bad about our church and then Bishop told them that he is a member and bishop of that church and invited them to come and see for themselves how it is. So they did...and we started talking to them and they asked a lot of questions....they were really interested in the temple.....so we were careful what we told them but explained about temples to them. Then they tried to talk about their church with us....they said that the only thing they eat that comes from animals is eggs, and they don't eat sugar.....they are basically vegetarians to the extreme.....it was an interesting time.....
