of all we had two companionship exchanges with Elders: Thompson (MTC
companion), Lucero (Paraná), Fialho (Rio Grande do Sul), and Parrish (Utah).
Both duplas came to our area and it went pretty well!
ending up being a snooze. There were so
many people dying in our area that they decided to cancel all the blocos just
to be safe. So we pretty much returned
at 5pm every night until Wednesday for nothing. But it was good to relax and
study. They ended up having one bloco go
on yesterday (which wasn’t even part of carnaval).It was just a normal bloco - nothing crazy.
found a LanHouse! wayyy up in the other side of our area.
week has been pretty chill and normal. There
hasn’t been too much Carnaval excitement here in our area. Basically everyone
has gone to the city center to get their party on. A member showed us pictures
from the city and there were tonnnnnss of people at the Galo da Madrugada. I am
kinda sad because I thought we would have to run and try to escape people
throwing rotten eggs at us. Mardi-Gras would be the closest thing to Carnaval,
but here it is like 100 times worse.
week went super great. We are still teaching Severino and he is progressing a
ton! Unfortunately he couldn't make it to church yesterday because of his spine.
He is 71 years old. We visited him and
he is doing great. He makes these sweets
that are made of honey, banana, coconut and other stuff. And it is so amazing. He is my third grandpa.
