This week was crazy. For one, I haven´t fulled dried out since Wednesday last week because of the rain! Rain is not fun here. Generally it is just a light drench but once in a while it just pours buckets and umbrellas do nothing and it´s great when you are just in the street because all your appointments fell through. Oh well. So this week we were clapping at doors in a new area when we happened on a house where an old woman inside came to the window, saw us, and then when we said we were missionaries she lit up and said she was a Jehovah´s Witness and would we like to talk about the Bible with her? Yay. Later that day we talked with two missionaries from another church about our church and lets just say that it was a hard day. We taught some people this week that really are sooo awesome. We went to visit them with the Bishop and his wife and they weren´t at home. The bishop and his wife left and we started to do contacts there. It is an area realllly far away from our house, the church....everything. Did I mention it was raining? Also lots of lightning and thunder! We came to a crossroads, trying to figure out which way to go when we took one step in one direction and a literal lightning bolt hit the powerpole in front of us. really close. too close. It was the scariest thing I have ever seen and the thunder after nearly left me deaf. So we turned around. Woo!
My sunday was really busy. We ran to get a less active and take her to church and it was raining and then went to get our investigator and she wasnt there and then it really started to rain rain rain the street was a river and then we arrived soaked and without our investigator :( and then I had to teach the gospel principles class because the teacher wasn´t there and then I gave a talk about repentance in sacrament meeting! woo! and that was just until 12 oclock! Woo.
Yesterday the power was in and out, in and out. During the first part of church it was out but it returned. When we were teaching later that day....almost night, we had just taught the First Vision when the power went out in the house and we were just sitting there in the dark with our investigator and wondering what to do. So we continued teaching! There. in the dark. until she got a candle and luckily the power came back when we had to leave and we didnt walk in that street without light. It went out again when we were walking and we got a call form the other sisters that weneeded to get home NOW! Because it was getting really dark and the streets didn´t have any light. So we practically ran home and its all good now we have power! So that was my week in a nutshell. We found some good people to teach and I love my mission!! Woo for Brazil! I love you all sooooooo much! Sister Helm
