" experiences of my mission was on Sunday."

Some post rain recovery in Maxi (Brasilian word for Sam's Club)

A horse

This was a dang sick week. We had a ton of people at church including these two kids, Elber and Clayton. They are pretty guaranteed baptisms on Sunday. So we are stoked for that.
Today we had lunch at President's house because our zone had very clean houses when Sister inspected them.
We got there and did some practicing and then got a surprise present: 2ish hours of soccer! We have two ex-professionals in our zone, one who played on the u-15 Brasilian national team, so it was pretty dang sick. Elder Allred and I slayed like always.
We worked a lot this week and had a lot of results. We have a lot of new investigators and people moving forward. Probably one of the best experiences of my mission was on Sunday. We were at a members house teaching Elber and this dude named Rodrigo. We were teaching about repentance and baptism and stuff. In the middle of the lesson he was like "I want to talk privately with you guys after the lesson." So we were like alright whatever.
We went with him to the kitchen of the house and he was like "After you guys visited me for the first time I didn't really want to change that much. I drank, smoked cigarettes and marijuana, and stole things since the last time you visited. I didn't even read the Book of Mormon. But now as you guys were teaching me I realized that really I wasn't just lying to you guys, I was lying to Christ. Now that you said the things you said, I want to change and get ready to be baptized."
It was pretty dang sick I felt way happy for him, probably kind of how a bishop feels when someone comes to repent. I'm really glad that now he will be able to progress and be baptized. He is Clayton's brother, I think they will really help each other.
After the lesson we had to cross a big bean field and Elder Amaral and I made a dank freestyle video. Then there was this theif-looking dude at the end of the path and elder Amaral was like "Your camera is gone" But I was like no way, so we cut a different path across the field. He was in a urinating pose the whole time, like four minutes, so that is pretty weird.
In the box I could use some stick antiperspirant deodorant, Degree. That's all I can think of.
Word to all my friends at Utah State and around the world.
Thanks for all the help, love you all
