I don't have a lot to say about this week. We have started to work in a new neighborhood. We are finding a few people here and there, but this week we didn't get to do a lot of teaching. Lots of people were busy and so we just gave summaries and marked return visits.
Our recent convert Maria is going really strong. She made cake and calda de candica for us. She waits in the window for us to pass by and talk with her and she already entered in the lunch calendar for the missionaries. She has a strong testimony and loves the change that she has had in her life after her baptism.
Sunday was Father´s day here in Brazil. So Happy others fathers day dad. But because of this the church was a little empty and we didn't have many investigators there. They had all planned to do things as a family and I wasn't going to tell them not to do family things and go to church. So I hope next week we will have more investigators at the church.
The stake president gave a great talk about the importance of fathers in the home. How it is their responsibility to provide for the family. He told the story of the dad who brought his son with him to work. He worked raising bridges to let boats pass beneath and then lower it to let trains pass. That day he was distracted and his son entered in the chains and a boat was approaching. He was panicked and started to run to save his son, but knew that if he saved his son the people on the big boat would die. So with tears in his eyes he pressed the button to raise the bridge and sacrificed his son. This is what god did for us so that we could live. It is a great story to put in perspective what god did for us.

What is your favorite song on the drives we sent?
To be honest right now I haven't been listening to music. But I think the favorite song right now is called Pergunte. It is from the Brazilian FSY music.
What talk is your favorite from last conference? Or one that you've been studying lately?
I haven't studied a talk in months. I am just reading Jesus the Christ and the scriptures.
