So one of my favorite things in the world is looking at shirts that are in English. They NEVER MAKE SENSE. Live Like Sunset, Save to Planet, a girls shirt that says, I want to be your boyfriend, Life is Wonderfull, are just a few of the better ones I saw this week.
A few weeks ago, we went to the mall with Kadri, and someone who worked there was trying to speak English with her, and was like... so where are you from? Kadri said, ´´far, far away´´, he was like... oh, thats a nice place!
In other news......uh........
This upcoming week we have a baptism! A____, the one who is trying to quit smoking, quit smoking! Woooooo! She~ll be getting baptized this Saturday! SHe was struggling to quit smoking, so we asked her if she would like a blessing. She said yes, so we dragged the Elders over to her house, she received a blessing, and since then, she smoked one time, but felt so bad that she couldn~t smoke and hasn~t since! Its incredible because when we started teaching her, she was smoking a pack a day!!! She is so excited to be baptized. Her son, L______, who was super timid at first, finally started opening up. He will be getting baptized as well!! WOooooooooo!!!!! I love that family. They are pretty legit.
What else happened this week? Seriously, I~m at a losssss. We have been tracking down tons of people we~ve talked to on the streets, but a lot of the addresses don~t exist, everyone is drunk, or no one is home. It~s soooo annnnnoyinggggg. But its all good. I guess its a part of the mission.
World Cup is coming up! Wooooo!!! We weren~t really sure what we were going to be doing during the Brasil games. But seriously, there were like... 2 practice games where brazil was playing panama and servia. Like seriously, where the heck is Servia? Everything SHUT DOWN. I was walking on the street, trying to talk to people who are running to their house to watch the game. I would be like... so who is Brazil playing today? And they~re like.... we don~t know. but brasil is playing them. We got an email today that during the brazil games, we have to stay in house!!!! It~ll be cool though. It starts this week Thursday!!! Wooooooo!!!!!
Yeah, there~s not really a lot of news that I have to pass you guys this week. But I~m here still. I love it in the area. I love Nova Esperança. It~s really hard, but I love serving here! What else. What else. What else.
Yeah, that~s about it.
So let me know when you guys know whats happening. I was going to send a letter home, but seeing as I don~t know where we~re going to be living, I think I~ll just wait a little bit because I don~t know how long it takes to send mail home..seeing as I~ve never done it haha.
oh, and happy birthday mom! I forgot it was last monday.
