In a meeting with the bishop the bishop asked "Sister will you be singing in the mission´s musical fireside?"
"The lower voice, right?"
"haha. You can already tell?"
[that ward member that says everything he thinks] "Well, you don´t have the voice we´d typically expect from a girl like you. If we just heard your voice, we´d expect it came from a 2 meter tall woman."
We are having a really hard time finding people to teach, so we are trying to be really creative with our activities and have more opportunities to visit the church. So many people say "I wanted to visit, but the church is always closed when I walk by." It stinks, but nobody gets paid for their calling. Everyone, even the bishop, is volunteer, so we as missionaries are trying to give more opportunities for people to stop by when the church isn´t usually open. I hope it works! We are excited to give tours and English class starting this week. The problem generally is that no one in our area actually lives here. We find a lot of people for other missionaries to teach, because everyone from the surrounding cities works in Santos. But we know, when there´s a will, there´s a way, so here we go with our will to find the way!
