Man was this week busy. So first thing was that we finally had this activity that was planned weeks back (or at least mostly planned). So this past week, our LZ [zone leaders] (because even though it was our activity, everyone in our zone was invited to bring investigators, especially since our mission president was speaking) wanted to do a little skit about the Plan of Salvation. So this past week we did that in the morning instead of studying. So we prepped for that, had our usual meetings with the ward mission leader, and the activity began on Saturday. It was a lot of fun and everything went smoothly once it started. Then the other dupla [literally ‘double’, meaning companionship] had a baptism (and Bairu but the next morning). Then we had something insane happen on Sunday.
So we usually have two wards at this building but on Sunday, they announced that the two wards were merging and is now called “ala Bairu” (which was the other ward already). So that also means that all the missionaries here are now for Bairu because there is no more Grajaú. But then we had the call for transfers, which also means I finished my training! That just means I am a normal missionary now. But we got the calls last night and I got transferred.... to the other side of my house.
Yeah so I am now just with Elder Papalino but because of this ward change, everything else got moved around. For example, Elder Western will be training again (haha boa sorte [good luck]) and will be the district leader in Manchester (still in Juiz de Fora). Elder Pereira will be coming into our house with another elder, Elder Bledshoe (I think that is how you spell it). The zone leaders got moved to the house in Bairu (where Elder Pereira was) and Elder Smith got transferred to Conselho Paulina (Elder Smith just arrived two weeks ago).
So this week has been an adventure and I am glad to continue here in now Bairu!
