. Multi Zona.. I don't even know how this picture happened but all the missionaries were singing happy birthday to everyone that has a birthday this month
We learned alot of new techniques and we talked alot about our desires and actions it was motivating. I always leave multi zona feeling like there are so many things that I can do better. So this week Sister Pontes and I decided to put into practice what we learned and we worked our butts off inviting everyone to be baptized, infelizmente nobody excepted, but hey we are practicing our faith.
Batismo de Cristinao!!
We had an interesting experience this week. Cristiano, our recent convert invited other missionaries from another religion to come and talk to us...oh my gosh..we showed up at Cristianos house you know already to teach him and everything and then these other missionaries show up and they see the book of Mormon and they start asking all of these questions you know trying to bash our doctrine saying all of these things why our church isn't true and what not and my companion and I just sit there like "okay cool dude" And then he is all like "And women should not be teaching men about Christ" I just wanted to be like EXCUSE ME!? But we just let him talk you know waiting for our turn and finally when he was done I was all like "Sorry but we didn't come here to bible bash with you we came here to teach Cristinao, and we know that through the power of the Holy Ghost, though feelings of peace and love, and happiness we can know all things and quite frankly sir I don't feel any of these feelings with you" and then my companion was like "We are representative of Jesus Christ we have been called by him to preach to every creature the way of eternal life" Dude the Spirit was strong, and Cristiano was all like yeah Mórmons do have the truth.. The other missionary there didn't even know what to do..haha he was all like, okay, sorry, and then he left.. goodness. life of a missionary.
Honestly like I said before, I think all religions are good, I think it is so important that we show respect for one another, but I really don't have alot of patience for people that disrespect others..not cool.
But yeah we had a good week, trying to find people that want to go to church.
Nothing to exciting happened. But hey here is some pictures, love you all,
So when people ask me what my first name is I'm like "Mallory" And they are all like "What thats too hard to say" and I'm like "no you know the brand of the Fan" And they are all like "Ohh..cool" yeah sou eu!
Last Pday some members took my companion and I to some Japanese Gardens it was really cool.
My favorite Family that we are teaching
Mayka and Mauro aka best ward members ever.. love them!
Guys I love waterfalls..you don't even know
Took a min to do some exercises...só que não
So we were feeling fancy and decided to go to the churrascaria!! Its like a buffet place where its all you can eat, but the best part is that the people walk around with these huge knifes with steak on them and come to your table and slice off the meat for you (I don't think I explained that very well..but oh well)! It was so good..and I ate way too much. I think I gained a couple of kilos but its fine..
So there is this American couple of Utah here in Poços De Caldas..they are teaching english, and they wanted to buy us ice cream :) they´re cool
