Drunk Man Thought I Was His Son (Week 4)

Hey Everyone!

It's officially been one month since I left North America! Things this week were a bit more vibrant. I thankfully have not felt sick, and I thank my Guatemalan immune system for it haha. I am also happy to mention that I have not gained any weight for the month that I have been out here. I constantly have to walk/run up 6 flights of stairs about 4 times a day so I have been staying in good shape. 

This week I got to go out with my companion to place Book of Mormons to anyone willing to listen and read. One of the Elders gave a homeless man a Book of Mormon, but out teacher said that they just use the pages in the book to smoke! Not cool! At one point we had some native people ask us for directions. Thankfully, we managed to get them to where they needed to go. We also ended up speaking to this one man who was drunk. He somehow thought I was his son and constantly kept calling me his son and then shortly after fell over. We also had one homeless man randomly ask us if we had a gun. Never a dull moment out here!

I also have made lots of native Brazilian missionary friends. One of my friends, Elder American can rap and sing in Portuguese, which is awesome! I think my favorite part of my entire week was helping give a blessing of health to Elder Case. He hasn't been feelings his best, so prayers out to him! 

In other news, I was just made District Leader. I made some people cry during my first devotional so I think I am doing a good job. They cried because they felt the spirit! That makes me so happy. Elder Mercado is my favorite person in my district. He conducts our meetings very well, and is a funny funny guy. 

I am also trying to avoid women. I don't want them to think I am flirting with them so no talking to women unless they are going to get baptized!! That is all. haha

Well, I love you all! Thank you for your emails! Gracias! Obrigado!
