Search for Spiritual Experiences....

Bom dia com muita alegria!

Hope everyone´s doing well over in the states.

This week went pretty well. We didn´t work too much in our area this week.

ON Wednesday we went on splits with the Elders in a nearby city called Arapongas. Elder Manz is there right now! He was one of my companions like 8 months ago. My comp went with Elder Manz, and I went with Elder Krewer. He´s a super new missionary. He´s like a month in on the mission but he totally loves to work. We were in his area knocking on a few doors when we asked for water from this lady that was sitting outside of her house. She let us in and we started talking to her a bit. She told us that a minute or two before we knocked on her door, she said a prayer asking for someone to come into her life to help her out. WOW! She had just moved here, and she felt alone and confused. We invited her to church and she said yes full heartedly. crazy awesome spiritual experience. There are just tons of small experiences like that on your mission that help your testimony grow a lot stronger. She went to church yesterday and the Elders are teaching her now. We´ll see what happens.

Mothers Have the Most Important Calling in the World

What´s up guys!

Man is was so great talking to you guys yesterday. I just realized yesterday that I´m never going to speak english again the way I used to, haha! jk! We´ll see after the mish. Actually a few weeks ago Tiago looked up the video of my mission call opening, and I heard my voice when I read my call! MAN I spoke so stinking WELL! I don´t know what happened but I was like fluent in English. haha!

I´m in Apucarana! It´s super awesome here! The members are really great and they treat the missionaries really well! My companion is Elder Fagundes. He´s a super cool guy. He´s a super good missionary and has had a lot of success on his mission! We´re really excited to work hard this transfer.

New Adventures.... A Transfer to Apucarana!

Brother Paixo (Just got his mission call to Sao Paulo North Mission)

Bom dia!

I´m getting transferred! I´m going to Apucarana! It´s a city close to Maringá. I´ve heard it´s full of steep hills and stuff, so I guess I´ll get a pretty good workout! I´m pretty excited to work in my new area but also a bit sad to leave my area. It´s been for sure a great experience here and I´m really gonna miss a lot of people. 

Mother´s Day is next week! I´m stoked to talk to you guys! Haha, it´s kind of hard to believe that it´s gonna  be my 3rd skype on the mission. Time´s going by fast.

Elder Nascimento caught the bus to go to Londrina last night. He should be getting home on Wednesday afternoon. Man he is a really great guy. I´m sure gonna miss him. Lots of laughs.

This week was pretty good. But I´ll be honest. With this week being Elder Nascimento´s last week, we didn´t get as much work done as we wanted. There were a lot of dinner appointments with members and stuff. But it was pretty good! We sure ate a lot! Haha!
