Chicken Hearts and Testimony
Greetings from Osasco, SP! Things are going well down here in the beautiful land of jungles and smog and we had a lot of fun this week in the Novo Osasco B area. Here´s the down low:
After district meeting while we were waiting to do follow-up with our district leader, we started a foosball competition with the zone using the table that the church has. Elder Lopes, a missionary from Cape Verde, and I totally DOMINATED. Six games in a row, baby! I give him the credit, as I think foosball may be the national sport of Cape Verde. I have no information to base this claim off of, but I´m going to go with it.
I definitely ate a chicken heart this week. Wait, scratch that. I ate FOUR chicken hearts this week! I guess it´s kind of a delicacy here in Brazil. Why they eat chicken hearts, I do not know. It´s cheaper to buy lunch meat down here than chicken hearts, haha.
Had a great experience this week where we were working in one of the poorer parts of our area. An appointment had fallen through so we stopped to say a prayer and ask for direction on what we should do. We felt prompted to continue a bit further into the neighborhood and walked until we hit a dead end. There we met a family, introduced ourselves as servants of Jesus Christ, and were able to pick up a lot of investigators because of it! You never know how the Lord is preparing his children to hear the Gospel.
We had Elder W. Rodriguez´s birthday party this week at a member´s home. It was pretty awesome, mostly because I got to drink Guarana and eat cake with Kit Kat bars.
That´s about it for this week. Keep the faith!
