Sete Cinco {7.5.}

Monday-We got pizza to celebrate Elder Flores' 22nd birthday!!!! 
At A Division in Itapevi

Tuesday-Early in the morning, Elder Flores and I headed off to Zona Barueri where I did a division with Elder Ellis in his area of Itapevi! Good day! Itapevi is a very interesting city with tons of hills, and it lightly sprinkled all day.

Wednesday-Today was also interesting. In the morning we met and had a meeting with the Stake President of Barueri. It was a good meeting, we talked a lot about how we could work better with members and improve on our side and theirs, it was a good productive discussion. Then we ate lunch with the Bishop of Itapevi and then we ended the division.
After, Elder Flores and I worked in our area like normal!

Thursday-We found a ton of new investigators, and followed up with all the people who were going to church and who were going to get baptized! 

The dog's name is Flower

Friday-TODAY WAS AWESOME!!!! So If anyone remembers, back in Brasilandia with Elder Medina we did a game with a chocolate called BIS which involves opening a chocolate with 2 spoons and socks on your hands while a dice is being rolled, it’s super fun and everyone loves it! Well, we did it with two different groups of investigators and recent converts and it rocked! 100% success! 

But the coolest part of it all was our 9 year old recent convert Rodinei and his little friend 8 year old Rafael, who we baptized this week. These two little guys were some of the best missionaries I've ever seen. We asked them to take us to everyone they knew and they did! They talked to everyone in the street and invited everyone they saw in the street whether they knew them or not, to go to church and to get baptized! They are so awesome!! I love them! :)

We got gaxgazzo coxinhas

We even went up to a place called "Sete Cinco," which is a favella that I’ve been hearing about since I had arrived in the area in October, Sete Cinco. It is known as one of the most dangerous places in São Paulo because of the drug violence. It’s on the very top of the favela but I never knew how to get there. But these two little guys took us up there to meet people and the drug dealers were very impressed with these two little missionaries. The good thing about Brasil is that almost all people respect church stuff a lot, so usually we're fine, but I will say, if we'd gone up there without our 2 little body guards, I don’t know how it would have turned out. But in the end of the day we had found 30 new investigators and a family of GOLD. Today was absolutely amazing! I loved seeing the desire and eagerness to preach the gospel of these two little missionaries Rafael and Rodinei.  A truly awesome day, awesome experience!

 Saturday-We followed up with everyone who was going to get baptized and go to church the next day! We even made little reminders to help everyone remember to wake up on time to go to church!!! It was great! :)
