This week was a bit slow going.  The zone leaders came to have a meeting with the mission president again so we had about 18 people sleeping in our house.  That was pretty fun but I had to get up pretty early to take a shower before everyone else.  Our house where I live was planned to be like that though. It has about eight beds and an extra ten mattresses so that if elders have to stay in Ribeirão Preto over night they have a place.  It seems there are always visitors.
We also talked to a lot of people this week.  We talked to 70 people in the street or knocking on doors. Considering the fact that we only proselyte three hours a day I would say that is pretty good.  But it would have better if we had been teaching.  
This week a Senior couple will arrive in our mission.  It will be the first time that a Senior couple will work in the mission office in our mission.  They were supposed to arrive today but bad weather diverted their arrival to tomorrow.  That was quite fun because no one notified us that they wouldn't be coming, so the mission president went to the airport to meet them and they didn't arrive.  We all began to worry since who knows where they got off in the middle of Brazil. It is all taken care of now. 
So I hope you all have a great week. I love you all!
