Week Fifteen - Missionary Choir and a Halloween Party

This week went by quickly, again. But it was a good week. We also had Stake Conference Saturday and Sunday. The missionaries in the Stake were part of choir which was ... "fun". The chorister asked President Gomez for our help, and the President and his wife came to all the sessions and spoke which was good. During the Priesthood Session we sang Elders of Israel. The last part we were supposed to sing "precisamos cumprir" again, but slowly. But there were a lot of people who thought it was "Sagrada missao precisamos cumprir" so when everyone started singing different parts it just died and sounded like "prreeuuhhhhmmm" and blank faces. So yeah there's that. The other sessions went better.

We made 2 new investigators this week. Venilson and Jessica. Venilson was like perfect. He already had a good firm knowledge in the bible and he was also very open minded. Like almost all of his family are already members. He was keeping our commitments, and really wanted to believe what we were teaching. Then on Thursday he moved to a different area.  So that kinda sucked. But we planted a seed and passed on the reference for the other missionaries where he is moving to.

One day this week we were at Melena and Genillson's house. We had already finished our lesson, and the mom and brother of Melena showed up and we talked a bit because the brother is a member of a different stake. We ended up talking about Halloween because Melina thinks that it is a pretty holiday. That kids get to go and ask for candy. And she was explaining it, and played a video on youtube for her mother to understand. The music of the video was Thriller by Michael Jackson. Genillson put a blacklight in the electric socket, turned off the light, and put this strobe light that he built and put it on the ceiling. For like 2 minutes we had a pretty banging Halloween party.

Still excited for November 7th. But right now we need to continue to find new people. We have one reference that we are waiting on right now. A member wants to have family home evening with them, and have us there. But we have a few that are close, they just have a few small hang ups, and we have a lot that are difficult to find, because they are never in their house when we show up. But that's the next 2 years of my life haha. Less than 2 now but you know what I mean.

I hope everyone is doing well! I love you and miss you all.
