Later Post This Week

So this week we had interviews with our mission president so our P-day was moved.  So that is why it is so late that I am writing.  This week was good.  We definitely were working much more this week than some of the others and we plan to continue doing that.  Yesterday for example we knocked doors for the whole day because we stopped visiting almost all of our investigators.  I think in a lot of places it is the people who say they don't want to talk to the missionaries, but in Brazil a lot of the time we have to make the decision to stop visiting the person.  This may seem a bit unloving but there are a lot of people who will let you visit them and talk to them about God and the scriptures until the end of time, but they will never go to church.  A lot of them don't even read what you ask them too, so in the end you have to stop visiting them because you are using the time you could be visiting someone who wants to do something rather than visiting someone who doesn't. Therefore, we looked for new people. In the whole day knocking doors we were able to teach a good number of people.  I am quite satisfied with how things went. We are still trying to be smarter though because there is always room to do that.
Last week we also went to the shoe mall in Franca.  It is a mall completely of shoes.  It wasn't really that interesting but we decided that we would go there at least to take pictures of the tourist attraction.

Other than that, we crossed a bridge that doesn't seem very secure but I think it is and it saves time walking.  I will include a picture.  It was quite fun. 

I hope you all have a good week!  I love you all!
