50 And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
51 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?
-1 Nephi 17: 50-51

Fevereiro Já!?

This week was hot! We walked so much, but it's a great opportunity to ask people for water - (ya we can just ask random people for water) and then after we drink it, we invite them to here a message or visit the church with us next Sunday. It's a really good opportunity. 

This week was good.  We met one lady named Maria that wants to get baptized but has a crazy schedule so it's really hard to get into contact with her in person.  We also had another baptism on Sunday. His name is Rodrigo, and he´s the son of our first baptism in January. After her baptism, he asked "How can I do what you guys are doing?!"  We answered, "Uh, get baptized, quit smoking and drinking, and follow the commandments... then you can start preparing for being a missionary...can you do that?"  He replies "Porque não é facil não?" (translated it is:  Why not it's easy, no?)  Haha, It was really cool!  He´s super pumped to get the priesthood and start preparing to be a missionary! 

We literally have rice and beans everyday but the members get creative with it, and we usually have chicken, too. We have to always eat with our utensils... it's hard to do with a chicken leg!

That's about it as far as exciting things this week.
