The Chocolate here is SO good! We get some every night during snack time. They have these chocolate turtles and these trufflish things that are muito good I could eat them todos as noites.
I passed out my first Book of Mormon! ...to a homeless person. Not even sure you´re supposed to do that xD But we went proselitismo em Downtown São Paulo. Our instructor said it was a famous street but I don´t really know xD. As our district was walking up to begin giving out BoM´s (6 per companionship) a homeless man started walking at us yelling cuss words and calling us "Americano Garbage!" Irmão Viana (our instructor) told us that meant "Welcome" in Porutugese haha.
I met lots of nice polite and friendly people. Some who I would have wanted to be amigos with but who weren´t interested in learning more. I met a family living on the streets with 2 little ones, and a woman with 2 little ones asked if I could hold her sleeping little boy while she bought something at the drug store. I smiled a lot and shared why we were here sharing Book of Mormons even if they didn´t want one. I still had one left over afterward, but I decided to keep it because I wanted to read it too.
I sang in portuguese in front of the whole MTC! ...in a quartet. I sang "I´m trying to be like Jesus" with three other Americano sisters while two others played the piano and the flute.
I am so glad I got to come here. I have been so happy here, and have made so many friends! I can´t believe next week I have to take what little portuguese I know and enter the mission field. I am so glad God called me here. Brasil is the best country in the world (in my opinion) xD
Fun fact: a lot of the street shops where we are don´t have doors. You can just walk right in, and when it rains or they´re closed, they have like a garage door.
