Well this week has been good!
This past week we ended up doing a split with our zone leaders and I ended up going to a city called Feira de Santana. We spent the day working there. It was cool to work in another city.
We had kind of a cool experience while I was there. We were heading to our last appointment of the day, and we were heading down this street that didn't have much activity of people. My companion and I were talking and we heard something weird and out of the trees and bushes two guys appeared. One of them was holding a pistol and they told us to give them our money, cell phones, everything we had....
So we started to give them our things while we talked to them and told them that, "We are missionaries of the Church" and when they saw that we were missionaries and didn't have much money, they both looked at each other, and they gave us everything back but 4 reis.
Before they left from us we gave them cards with a picture of Jesus Christ and invited them to go to church haha. I sure am glad that Heavenly Father watches over and protects us each and every day.
This past week we were able to put 4 baptisms dates on our investigators, so I hope they keep progressing. This is a picture of a big grasshopper that we found in our house and one of our investigators and a family that are members here in Santo Amaro. Well that's about it for the week.
Sorry don't have much more time, hope all is well with you guys.
Talk to you next week. Love Elder Nickerson
