October 21, 2011
So last P-day I went to viente cinco de Março (25th of March) a street famous in Brazil b/c they sell everything there. Its a big street full of knock offs, stolen stuff, pretty much everything. So that was sweet got some really nice ties and a soccer jersey. I chose Corinthians, a brazilian team, I guess they are kinda like a raiders or bengals of the NFL. Havent really won anything in 100 years (Cubs....) and their team is kinda sketchy. So as a missionary I had to chose them, it was an obligation more than anything. Then we saw the police beat some guy with his nightstick which was intense, I guess here they dont take any crap. We also taught a family and it seems like everytime there is more people there which is great, but they dont come to church, we will teach them tonight so we will see how that goes. We are trying to get a blind lady who is really sweet and her kids to come back to church. the frustrating thing is a lot of people say they will go to church and then wont. We also joined the stake choir, they didnt have many men I guess. The Portuguese is coming better, I can make out the general idea of what they are saying....normally it is still a struggle everyday but its getting better. The women here always feed us when we go to there house and always say come mais (eat more) come mais haha. But good week, thanks for all your support. Love you all!
