Translation, Translation!

This week for us was very slow too. We found some new people to teach, but they quickly fell off of the face of the earth. Pretty interesting how people show a desire to learn and then just don't want anything to do with you the very next day. We did have a pretty cool Sunday though. It was ward conference and as you know we're the only Brasilian branch in the mission, so all of the leadership of the stake are English speakers. So what did I get to do this Sunday? 4 hours of translation because of multiple trainings we had. Wow was I tired yesterday. It was really cool and fun though. The members said they were impressed, so I think that means I've been accepted as one of there own haha So the missionary broadcast was crazy! They've changed a lot of things! How it's going to affect our mission? We'll find out tomorrow at a mission conference. But they've pretty much changed our whole schedule around for our day to day work. For example, P-day will now start at 8 am and end at 6 pm. We don't have nightly planning anymore. We'll do all of the planning in the morning and what not. It's interesting. The other big change is they took away most of the key indicators. They kept 4. Baptized and confirmed, investigators at sacrament meeting, investigators with a baptismal date, and new investigators. Very interesting indeed. The rest was a reminder from last year to teach repentance and baptize converts. So, some of the youth in the Brazilian branch know that I'm staying for a few days after I get released and wanted to hang out one of the nights that I'm here. Is there a night available I can go hang out with them for a couple of hours? Just hoping that'd work out cause the youth in this branch are pretty awesome. One of them just got his mission call to Orlando actually! Super cool. Anyways, love you tons! Thanks so much! I bought some new pants because my old ones were NASTY. But, that's about it for the week!
