Elder Hunt took a trip down memory lane and visited the CMT this week
Monday-Sooo, we didn't have p day last week, we were to only use our email in the morning and then work like normal the rest of the day. It was cold and rained a ton. This certainly didn't help Elder Messick and I who were super sick. But luckily we had planned an activity planned with the young men and women to integrate some of our teenage investigators. The activity went well, not what we planned, but it went well :)
Tuesday-Today was technically our p day, it was a special day because we went back to the MTC! We went there with a few of the Sao Paulo missions to see a The Brasil Area Presidency speak. While there, we went and picked up one of the good old donuts that I would get when I was in the CTM, and I ran into my CTM comp Elder Mayfield! What a walk down memory lane. Also something sort of funny happened while we were there. We started talking to a missionary from the Sao Paulo West mission and he began to talk badly about our mission and started to brag that their mission baptized 109 people last month, then we told him our mission baptized 271 and he shut up pretty fast- haha. It was very easy to tell the difference from our two missions based upon our obedience and results versus theirs.
Elder Hunt's Alphaville Zone
Wednesday-We had a super cool zone training! Messick and I wore our baptismal clothes and gave our training. WE LOVE USING OBJECT LESSONS, so we bought ice cream, cookies, and sprinkles to make an ice cream sundae, each one of the 3 objects represented good teaching, good planning, and knowing how to work efficiently. Then we added Tabasco hot sauce, salt, and oil, each one of them being, if you don't have faith, or desire, or obedience, it was all bout being the best most complete missionary you can be. The big emphasis was on being the best YOU, not comparing yourself to others and working to reach YOUR true unbelievable individual potential. It was great training with some of the other things we taught and passed to our zone.
Having fun together as a zone
Thursday-We had one of the most incredible life changing Zone Conferences from President Farnes. I work my hardest every single day to continually raise my vision to push the limits of what is possible, but after a conference with President Farnes, Acts 2:40-41 can be made a reality- "And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation!" So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls." President Farnes makes dreams a reality; I am unbelievably blessed to have him as my Mission President.

Friday-WEEKLY PLANNING. That afternoon, Elder Messick went to Cajamar to do interviews for the sisters and I stayed with a rad 16 year old in the ward named Davi. We had some great lessons and followed up very well with our investigators! That night Messick got back at about 8:30pm, BUT all the power in the city had turned off and the buses had stopped service, it was also raining, we ran out of phone credits, and we were VERY far from home. In the end, we got a ride with a member to our house, but we got home SUPER late, it was terrible.
Saturday-We did tons of divisons, tons of Elders, tons of switching areas to get all the zone interviews done! Another night where we got home very late.
Elder Hunt's new love- Emily the Husky
Sunday-An amazing family of five we've been teaching went to church! AND THEY LOVED IT! And they all have baptismal dates for this end of the week ;) Also remember the family I talked about last week, Cristina, Wessley, William, and Emily the dog?
Well, Cristina and her daughter went out of town, but Weslley and William were baptized, they are very special friends and even more special, that was my 80th baptism in my mission. Great day, great week. The zone baptized 10 and we are leading the mission for thr month with 19!

Lunch today with the Elders- All You Can Eat!
Monday-I was working out in the morning with my weights in my back pack and it completely ripped. :( So we went to 25 de Março, remember that really cool place? I bought a new back pack and we went to that all you can eat meat and pizza place, it was great! :)
