"...there are too many people to teach and too little time!"

The baptism of Laynife: Me, Elder De Azevedo, Laynife,
Luciana, Luciene, Breno (the ward mission leader), and his wife Luiana

So on Tuesday Elder De Azevedo headed out. Elder Prado got in at about 3 or 4 in the afternoon. We have basically been shredding it since his arrival, more than ever on my mission. We pretty much set a Quebec record for people taught this week, it was boss, and we found a ton of new people. Elder Prado is a pretty cool guy...for now he is planning on staying on the mission, so that is good news.
My legs were very, very, very sore on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I didn't warm up or stretch or anything before playing soccer on Monday. Before the mission I always just went straight to work shooting and running fast and there were no repercussions. But my legs are aging and warm up will be a necessity from here on out.
Time is going by really fast, there are too many people to teach and too little time! But we found a bunch of dope ones on Saturday and Sunday. I'll just give a brief description of them.
The most boss is Junior. We found his name among old references that past missionaries got. We passed by his house on Saturday and he is dang rich. Generally rich people give us their name and tell us to pass another day just to get rid of us, and I feared the same with Junior. But we rang his interphone and he let us in after putting his rottweilers away.
He is dang sick, he is Presbyterian and lives with his wife. We taught him the restoration and he understood, which is super super rare. He got stoked about the BoM (which we are teaching in the first lesson always now. We used to not talk about it til the second visit.) and promised to read it. So we are super stoked about him.
Shortly after leaving Junior's house, we found Erica, who is also dang cool. She is a journalist and doesn't go to any church. She also payed attention to what we said and understood, and also got psyched because of the BoM. She is really busy most of the time, but said that on Sunday she will go to church.
There were other people too, but I don't have time to talk about all of them.
Love you all, have a good week. Oh also, my "heartburn" passed and the doctor said it was probably just gas. That is relieving. Love
Elder Prado and I

"And the story goes on
there's no glory and the worry takes a toll on
his own body but his buddies wanna roll on
It's all bloody when the car comes to a stop
the police with the big glocks pull 'em out
they say freeze but there's only one one comin out
there's two dead with a legal gun to his head
It's stupid, he shoulda played ball instead
