This week we've been working hard here. The weather is hot, the people are lazy, but the Lord is with us, so I´m sure that things will all work out in the end. We´re teaching a few good families. Now if we can just get them to go to church we´ll really see some miracles here. I've officially made it through to the bottom of my sole in some spots on my shoe. It´s socks to the ground here until I get a chance to buy new shoes, but I walk so much that my feet are basically Hobbit level strength and I really don´t even feel it. It´s kinda cool honestly. My first Zone Leader here had shoes with a hole in the front and in the back, so apparently it worked like air conditioning! We´ve been playing a lot of chess here in what little we have of free-time, so thanks for the chess set Grandma! It´s been doing good work.
As for cool Brazil stories, we saw a group of people in the plaza here doing a demonstration of Capoeira. It´s a Brazilian Martial Art that involves a lot of spinning kicks and almost acrobatic moves, all low to the ground. It´s also a dance form! They have a special instrument that looks like a bow for archery with a big gourd on the end, and it makes a really cool musical sound. It was pretty sweet to see people from up to my size down to short fat guys all doing these sweet moves to a sweet dance beat. I really felt the Brazilian culture.
