This week was good. Tuesday we had our zone meeting. Our whole zone came together and we had a good meeting. WE had 90 minutes in districts, and 1 hour in the zone. Then we ate lunch and spent the other 4 hours interviewing everyone and doing all the needed practices with the new missionaries. It was a good meeting.
We had a cool idea to help our members work a little harder with us. Since Christmas is coming up, we got a Christmas tree and put it in the chapel entrance. But there were no ornaments. We gave a paper to every member and told them they had to put their name and the name of someone we could go by and teach. A referral. Each person that gave us the paper back with a referral on it got 1 ornament to put on the tree. Each referral is 1 ornament. The idea is to get the tree looking real nice and pretty, then we will start visiting all these members and get the address of the referral and go there with the member. If one of these referrals is baptized, we will put a present under the tree. We will put a sign over the tree that says, "Give a present to Jesus Christ". The present is one soul for Christ to save. Everyone got pretty excited and we got a bunch of referrals. We are also doinga puzzle for every family in the ward. The puzzle is a magnet and there are 9 pieces. Each piece has something for the member to do. Like bring a friend to church and introduce them to the missionaries. Or invite 2 friends to a family night and invite the missionaries too. Stuff like that. 9 pieces. Each time the member completes one, we will give them that piece to put on their fridge. And the goal is to complete the whole puzzle. They all got pretty excited about that too! I hope it goes well!!
This week we will have a big meeting in Belém so we will have to travel a little bit, but it will be super good.
I am loving my mission. It is super hard sometimes, but we see tons of miracles everyday and are always having spiritual experiences.
Sorry I don't have much to write today, I will try and do better next week.
