Jan. 19, 2015 1st baptism!

          Week 31

Have you ever had fish eggs? yeah, they are the weirdest textured food ever.

We got a little raise in the money we receive every two weeks, so what did we buy? Subway! Guess how much we paid on a 6 inch sandwich. (hint: it was called the cheap of the day.) 


We also bought a hamburger called "x-tudo" or extra everything. It is basically a heart attack on a bun. I have been feeling that burger the entire week. It has started to wear off now. 


The week went really well. In fact, I had a suprize BAPTISM!!!
We invited our investigator's son, Em, to be baptized and he accepted, so we scheduled the date for Sunday. My companion wanted me to baptize him, so he told Em how awesome it would be to be the my first baptism. Em smiled and wanted me to baptize him. 

He is really quiet and the way we got him to accept us is from us visiting him at the soccer courts. The baptism was awesome. Now we have to convince the parents why they should join our church and not stay as a Catholic. Catholisism is basically their culture.

That is it for this week

I think. I heard that it is 39 cents is 1 real.

Maybe it isn´t so bad of price with american money, but the wages are the same down here and the money is worth less.

From Elder Kyson, a few hours south in Caucaia, Brasil: 
it was ~12 R$. about 5 bucks. youre nuts i wouldnt ever go there. its pretty expensive. everytime i go i turn around and walk out crying empty handed. haha.
