Week 49 - Training in Cuiaba

Monday- So today I got to basically do my new favorite thing......FAMILY HISTORY!!!! :D I helped an Elder (from Dallas) learn how to use Family Search so we did his family history! It was awesome!!! I felt the Spirit so strong!! I know that there were happy people in heaven!!!! :) And we listened to this 

Tuesday- So today we had a training with the new missionaries and then one for the trainers. It was really good!! And then I got my new companion!! Her name is Sister Whipple! She is from Blanding, Utah and she served one transfer in New Jersey. :)She is super awesome!!

Wednesday- We had to go to the Federal Police to register her with Brazil. Then we tried to go back to the doctor to show him my results....but he wasn't seeing patients so we went back to the office and the Elders gave her her training because her plane got in later and so she didn't get it with everyone else. 

Thursday- So today we really DID see the doctor. He said I'm fine. He thinks it was like an infection with a short life span and because I'm feeling better he thinks it's gone. THen after that we went to the gas station to get food and we talked with the two chashiers and we ended up teaching them there un the gas station about the Book of Mormon and gave them each one. :) It was really awesome! They are really wanting to learn but they work a lot. One of them, Josi, actually works two we will probably be talking more with Dasi. 

Friday- So today was a lot better. We had a lot more time so we worked alot. We don't have an Area Book or anything yet so we are basically starting from scratch. So we went and did contacts. But becasue we are in the city there is a lot of apartment buildings....which are really hard to get into because they only let you in if you know someone......please pray for us that we can get in!!! :/ 

Saturday- CONFERENCE!!!! So fun conference we had lunch early with a member but because lunch ran late we stayed with them to watch the 1st session and they said that Sister Whipple and I could watch in English.....but then the other computer wasn't picking up the I decided to watch in Portuguese and let Sister Whipple watch on his phone in she was watching and everything and she looked into it. So everyone was happy for her! But then when we left and went to the church to watch the other session she told me that the member had her on youtube to watch conference and he actually just typed in "general conference" and then the first talk he saw.....little did we all know (because she didn't say anything) he was just clicking on random conference talks from various years!!! She wasn't watching the right conference!!! But when we got to the church we watched in English. :)
Sunday- CONFERENCE PART 2!!! So to go to conference our ward rented a bus and we all went together and the Relief Society made lunch for the ward and while on the bus we all started singing hymns! It was super fun! And then we all had a yummy lunch together and then after conference we all went home on the bus and we sang again!! It was awesome!! :)

Monday- SO this morning we started washing hand....again.....because the faucet is too small to connect it to the washing machine so we need to buy an adaptor. So I just started washing. And then halfway through the Elders asked to borrow our blender and so when I gave it to them they asked why I was wet and I told them about the clothes and they were like "oh wait! I think we have one of those at our house!" and they did! SO we put it all together and now we are washing clothes the lazy way!! :D But then we cleaned the laundry room because the elders left it REALLY dirty! We felt productive!! Haha!
