Crazy Week

So this week Elder Cordiero was sick, and it was really bad, so we spent the day in the hospital. By the way the hospitals here are nothing like hospitals in America! We had to wait for about an hour (and we were in one of the better hospitals, apparently its usually more like four hours).  Elder Cordiero is feeling a lot better right now, so hopefully this week will be a little better.
It rained a lot this last week. The streets turn into rivers and everything gets soaked. It's also been pretty cool (it's about 15 right now.)
We had an emergency transfer, so Elder Silvestre is now in Juiz de Fora, and we are currently waiting for our new Elder. 
We have a few good investigators, but they all need to stop smoking. Yesterday, we went to go pick up Claudir and bring him to church, but on the way to church he backed down.
 Pedro and Anezia don't often come to church, but they have been investigators for a while, and they got married, but Anezia is having problems with the word of wisdom. We haven't seen Ricardo this week, but we think it was because he was with his family (he has been separated from his wife because of his drinking and smoking, so we are hopeful)
Tomorrow we have an appointment with a friend of a member, who has gone to several activities, and has expressed interest in getting baptized.
My Português is improving and I can understand a lot more, and can usually get my point across. My accent is still awful, and I imagine that it will be for quite a while.

The other Elders in our ward had a baptism this week, which was really exciting.
The food here is really good, and the members basically force you to take two plates weather you want to or not. 

When ye are in the service of your fellow men ye are only in the service of your God

I love you all, and pray for you
Elder Lindsey
