Hi guys! Another week down and many, many, more to go!

This week was pretty good. We had some really special investigators in church. We taught some good lessons. And I made a lot of tapioca. 

Tapioca is a north Brazilian food. It is made with a special type of flour, oil, salt and water. It is cooked in the shape of a pancake then you put whatever you want in it. One of my roommates taught me how to make it. So I made it almost every day this week. This is a picture of me and my companion at an investigators house making tapioca. 

I had a special experience this week with the language. Before this one lesson I was really worried about my ability to speak Portuguese. My skills are improving but are still weak. Anyway I said a pray before we went in. Then we taught the lesson. After the investigator asked where I was from and was surprised to hear I was from the United States. I probably spoke the best Portuguese I have ever spoken during the mission. So that was awesome. 

One of our investigators is awesome. He loves learning about the church. He has also changed a lot since we first met him. I know he will be a great example. He really has a true desire to know the truth. On Sunday he rode his bike all the way to the chapel. We offered to have a member pick him up but he refused. I was a bit worried he refused because he didn´t want to come. But come Sunday morning I saw him riding in wear jeans and a tee shirt with a Book of Mormon strapped to his bike. It’s amazing to see how the gospel changes us. 

I am very grateful to be here. I love you guys very much thanks for your support!
