Mensaje Nuevo

If I could sleep for half a year like a bear, I would!

Hey everyone! 
This week has been a bit weird for me. We've had something to go to or be at almost every day this week. Oh, and that's other than the normal mission stuff.

To start out, Monday we had choir. Yes, I'm in a choir. It's a choir of selected individuals from all of the mission. We meet two times a week to practice. Our first performance is on the seventh. We're singing some hymns in Spanish, and a version of the Twelve Days of Christmas in Portuguese. It's interesting, because Portuguese is really close to Spanish, but... different. It's kinda hard to explain.

Tuesday we had our district meeting like normal. However, right after, Elder Campos had to go to emigrations, so I went on splits with a member of our ward. Boy, was that difficult. I had to do practically all of the talking, contacting, and everything else Elder Campos and I worked together on. That was an adventure.

On Wednesday, we had a multi-zone conference with our mission president. It was a big training thing with three different zones, and they talked about stuff like health, stress, and other important things to remember.

On Thursday, We went and helped with some service for the pensionista of the Hermanas. We sanded her walls, and did some painting.

On Friday, we had Choir again! YAY! However, after choir we had to do our weekly planning session, which always takes about two hours, so that was fun.

On Saturday, nothing happened.

On Sunday, (yesterday) there wasn't sacrament meeting, because they had elections down here, and the time for voting was right at the time of the meetings, so there just weren't any meetings. Another thing that happened was that we didn't have anywhere to go for lunch. (On Sundays we always eat with the members, but because of the elections, the schedule was messed up), so we called one of the members and they said they would feed us. Anyway, it was also a pretty normal proselyting day, and at one of the houses, they invited us in to try a little food. It turns out, a "little food" is actually a lot of food. After this, we had to go to the members who'd invited us too, so yesterday I had four meals. Breakfast, Lunch, lunch, and dinner. 
In the afternoon, we had a satellite transmission for all of the South American countries, so that was interesting. It was about "Hastening the Work of Salvation."

Anyway, that about sums up this week. I love you all, and wish you un ¡Feliz Día de Gracias! I could make a list of all the things I'm grateful for, but I don't have another hour to write it. Thanks for all your emails and all your support!

Well, I'm off to eat something either (1) salty (2) sweet, or (3) ew, what is that? Thanks!

-Elder Dañel Jacob Smith

P.S. So, I've started a collection on copies of the Book of Mormon. Right now, I have one in Portuguese, French, Spanish, and English :)
