march 27th

March 27th

Something that was pretty funny this week is the food that we ate. I don't know why, but we ate a lot of acai and drank a ton of juice. There was one day where we found a stand that sold unlimited sugar cane juice for only 4 reals, which is a little more than $1. I drank more than a liter of it and after i was feeling a bit sick but it was still super good.
But as far as missionary work goes, it was a bit tougher this week to be honest. We spent a lot of time looking for new people to teach, but weren't able to find a lot of people. Yesterday we sat down and figured out how we can improve and find more people, so we're going to put our new plan into action next week.
Our main investigator, Dienifer, is still working on getting a testimony of the Book of Mormon. Its kinda tough with her right now, because she knows a lot and I know shes already received an answer, but something is holding her back and we don't know what it is. We've been thinking and praying a lot to know what we should do, but until now everything we've tried hasn't worked. There have been at least 3 or 4 lessons where I know she felt the Spirit but she still says she isn't ready. But, I still have high hopes for her that she'll be baptized, we just need to be patient with her and baptize her when she's ready and when the Lord is ready. 
One night we went out with Dienifer and her family to eat pizza and a restaurant and the guy that owned it lived in the states for 3 years. It was really funny listening to him talked about his time there. He was going off about how much he loves every part of the states. We were talking in English and Portuguese, and I noticed pretty quick that he picked up a pretty colorful vocab while he was there if you know what I mean. After we got done talking he gave me a huge hug, and every time I pass the restaurant and he sees me he gets excited, its funny! hes a good guy though.
Something that we have been sharing with lots of members during lunch is the First Vision. The church released a new video about it that's super cool! Everyone should watch it for sure. We're also inviting the members to pray and re-recieve an answer that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true, and I want to invite you guys to do the same. You already have received and answer, but this is something we can do again and again and will only strengthen our testimonies, because Heavenly Father will give us answers as many times as we ask, not just the first time! Then, pray and ask Heavenly Father if it's true and if Christ restored His gospel though Joseph Smith.

But that's it for me. Talk to you guys next week and have a good one!
