My week was pretty good.

Maria and Dora are still making some great progress…they loved church and are loving to study with us…we had a way cool family home evening with them and a member friend they have and we talked about the plan of salvation and it was great in the end they said they want to be baptized but that they don’t feel ready yet…i did get a little sad because they did not come to church this week…

My English class is going sooo well…i invented a curriculum and its going really well…i submitted it to president cabral and i think the rest of the mission might start using it in the English classes. There is one man in my class that is basically fluent and he loves me. he is like 75 years old and super cool. he is atheist but a way cool guy. we are going to his house this week to talk a little more. He told me that i am the hope for my generation so that was cool.

Elder Hernandes gave on of the best sacrament talks I have ever heard…this ward is super irreverent, its unrealistic, and he talked about the sacrament. he said that the priesthood represent Christ, willingly preparing, blessing and braking his body and then offering it to us. He said when we partake of the sacrament we are destroying the body of Christ because that is what we did throughout the week when we were sinning and making Christ suffer more. in the end he said the sacrament is like a funeral and that he had already been to a funeral (his little brothers, but only i knew that) and that while he was there he could not laugh, gossip or even talk, but just think about the life of the person who was now gone…it touched alot of people.

today we went to a huge fishing dock…it was so cool to be that close to the ocean. It really is crazy beautiful here…

But yeah that’s my week…this up coming one is Carnival so we will see how that goes haha

Love you all!!!

Love Elder Winstanley
