Padre Bernardo Week 12

Holy Cow! What a week. This week was full of rain, freaky animals, and ended in a little disappointment. Let´s get started.

So Tuesday morning things kick off rather swell as we come home and find the most terrifying spider I've ever seen (a tarantula), fortunately it was dead, but just knowing that these exist right here was way scary to all of us, and then we all took pictures. That same day we encountered another very strange spider outside our back door, and let's just say that I'm not the biggest fan of spiders.

This was also my first week with the Elder Peralta from Bolivia and he is a way cool guy and a great missionary. He is getting to know the area and, being a very experienced Elder, he has a lot of experience to pull from in helping this area grow. He also taught me how to do a Rubik's Cube so I like him.

The sisters are great as well, we have Sister Gimenez from Argentina and Sister Heperi from New Zealand who has only been in Brasil for a month and a half and speaks worse Portuguese than me. But they are great and are going to be a great help here.

This week also happened to be the week of crazy rain, like it rained so hard that my umbrella broke because of the wind, and then it continued to rain everyday after that as well. So it was a bit dreary. But we really needed it, Sometimes you forget that rain is possible in Padre Bernardo because of how dang hot it is.

Our investigators this week were just great, we have an older couple who fed us dinner in the midst of the rain, and they are just very nice, they even said they would come to Stake Conference this week along with several other investigators so that was neat. We plan on working more with them.

For Stake Conference we rented a bus to take us to Brasilia which ended up being awesome, everyone that went, loved it. The only problem is that every single one of our investigators that said they would go, ended up bailing on us at the last second... so that was sad but this next week we have hope for miracles!

Anyways I love you all, and I hope you all have a perfect week and that Halloween was amazing,

Elder Hyer
