Jordan in Rio

January 9, 2012

Well the holidays were not very cool for a missionary, we just stayed on the road all day, and talked to last minute shoppers who were still on the road. New Years was worse because the biggest New Year party in the world is in Rio and it wasn't in my aria... so by 7 there was not 1 car driving in the street and nobody was on the road, this week was much better... we started off slow and then my comp got sick and had to stay home so we sent the bishop and the ward mission leader to go and teach and they did swell with the lesson they taught.

We should be having a baptism next week and I am sooooooo happy for Marcia- she loves the church and the Book of Mormon and knows its true and the members have been helping a lot to teach and help us with her, so that should be very good for us and the ward. We also have been marking (scheduling?) many family nights in our area and this has been helping the work a lot. We give people the invite to work and bring new people plus we bring our investigators and together we just have a big fun time and get a lot more teaching in, sometimes we get enough appointments marked that my comp and I go on divisions and we are both teaching at the same time! Not a whole lot more has been going on then that. just lots of work.
