This week was a pretty normal week, we worked with the members, and taught a lot of lessons. On Thursday and Friday we had a big service project. We built a shed, cleaned everything in the house, painted, laid down tile, and pretty much made the house livable. It was a lot of hard work and we had to wake up early to leave our house about 8. After our work on Friday, they took us to Outback, which was amazing, it is always good there. I was able to teach a lesson to one of the workers. It helps being an American because everyone asks why we are here, and all sort of stuff. This week we also worked in a favela....as I said before it is like the hood, but worse. We didn't have any success, but we were able to help some people. About "The World Cup", we watched it was some other missionaries, after the game they were all mad and sad. People don't want to work anymore, their mindset is to stop caring because of the loss. Soccer is their life and if they win they are happy, but if they lose it is like someone died in their family. Our president said that we need to be careful because most Americans look German and the people of Brasil don't like them right now, so we just need to be more careful.
A little service is all part of the work
Even missionaries get to have a little bit of fun!
