This week was pretty normal, but was also pretty awesome. This week, Elder Aitukaitis was here in Goiania because of the ´´devisao da estaca´´. I don~t remember what its called in english, but it translate to stake devision. Here in Goiania, we have THREE STAKES now. For those of you who are not members of the church, I~ll explain a little bit what is a stake.
We have chapels. And in these chapels are ´´wards´´. A ward is like a congregation. A stake is a group of 4 or 5 wards. Because of the recent growth in the church they are creating more wards or more congregations, and because of this, they are dividing the stakes. I don~t know if that helps you understand or not, but anyways...
It was super cool. Our bishop rented a bus and we all went to the stake center to watch the broadcast of the conference. It was cool. The quality was awful, but you do what you can do.
This week was really hot. My companion passed out and so that was cool, so we had to stay in for a little bit until she was feeling better. So that was cool.
There were a lot of birthdays this week, so i ate a lot of cake.
Oh, and last but not least.
This week, I went to take out money from the bank and my card was working. So I went to another ATM, no luck. I went to tons of ATMs and nothing was working. I just about had an anheurism. So one day, we went to the mission office and I had to call bank of america. I feel bad for the first person I was talking with, because I was unable to speak english fluently. So he was really confused, I told him sorry because its been a really long time since ive spoken english, and after he transfered my call to another person. I~m talking to her for a good while, turns out my card was a part of a ´´mass compromise´´. they cancelled my card and sent me a new one to our house at hares den, which would explain as to why you guys never received my card. so i asked them about what i could do. they kept transferring me, and finally a lady unfroze my account long enough for me to take out some money. i took out about 200 dollars. but to be honest i don~t even know how much money i have in my account agora. one person told me i had one number and another representative told me another number.
but everythings good now. they are sending me a new card that schould get here next week.
lets see. oh! be sure to tell the young women thank you for the post cards. i receieved them this week. it was really fast!!!
other than that, I don~t have any other news for yall
