Thank goodness its P-day.
This week was nuts.
Not really, but man I am so tired.
So this area is very different from my other areas. When I was in Goiania, it was nice, because the office is so close so if you need anything, you can practically just go pick it up. Here in Rio Verde its not so simple.
I love this area. Rio Verde, I was already telling dad, is a lot like Kaua'i. Its supppper country. A ton of red dirt. No one speaks English. Everyone is super brown from the sun and probably the dirt as well. Its very hottttt. Thankfully yesterday, it started raining. It was funny, everyone has been praying so hard for rain because its been higher than 40 degrees Celsius. The wind is hot, the sun is hot, the shade is hot. It reminds me a lot of Las Vegas heat. Just that we have to walk miles after miles after miles in it. But I like it. There are a lot of really cool people here.
So for a couple of days, we were without power in our house. I don~t really know what happened, but we were unable to contact anyone because we also don~t have a cell phone, so finally we were able to use the cell phone of the Elders. I don~t know how we got power back, but we did, so I~m super happy about that. But then pretty much everyone was without power yesterday because of the heat and the rain. i don~t know what happened, but we taught a few lessons yesterday in the dark.
On Saturday, we were walking this one road, that normally is okay to walk on, but it was the weekend, and everyone was drunk. and it was pretty deserted. We were walking, and out of nowhere someone behind us was like... GOOD NIGHT. I freaked. out. I turned around and it was some drunk guy, he was like.... noo noo noo I^m your friend. And then he told us about how he wanted to find Jesus, and then he started praying really loud in the middle of the road, and then he was like.. yeah, i like to have powerful prayers ya know? and then he started praying again. Me and my companion were just laughing. Afterwards, he was just like... well, I~m off to buy some drugs. And disappeared. It was probably one of the funniest things thats happened on my mission, but me and my comp probably won~t walk down that street at night anymore hahahaha.
We~re teaching this one lady, Senhorinha. Its funny that her name is Senhorinha, because it literally means little old lady. But she~s hilarious. We taught her the first lesson, she accepted baptism, this week we passed by to teach her the plan of salvation, but then she told us she smokes more than a freight train, so we decided to talk about the word of wisdom instead. Everything we teach her kind of just goes in one ear and out the other, so when we teach, I repeat everything about 500 times. But she~s so funny.
Wellllll, thats about all that I have to say this week.
Love you all!
