January 11, 2016

Well this week was really great. To start off I have officially been in all four of the Brazilian States that are in my mission boundaries. Distrito Federal, Goias, Tocantins, and Minas Gerias. We did a trade with one of our districts that was getting alittle down. So we hopped on the bus and went to Unaí, Minas Gerias. The first few hours on the bus ride I was passed out. Then I woke up and we were in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. We were passing through the green mountains that were covered is a fog. I felt like I was heading up to the Zion Ponderosa and that Utah finally receive some rain. I was completely amazed by the beauty and how well of a job God had done to create it.
 When we finally got there we divided into 2 groups, planned our day and went to work. It was one of the best days of the mission. We were able to put everything we had to give this missionaries something to look forward to. The hard work paid off. Each pair was able to find many people to teach, taught alot of lessons and we topped of the day eating pizza. We saw alot of miracles for sure that day. That night we talked a lot with them to keep working hard and a few strategy that would really make a difference in there work. It was great to visit them. I learned a lot from them. This is what I love about the mission, it doesn´t matter how much time you have on the mission you can always learn from others. Before we left we had to eat some of the famous things of Minas Gerias. Pão de quejo and doce de leite. Lived up to its expectations
 Then we got back to our area and we went to one of our favorite members wedding, Tiago. He is awesome and helps us so much. He was a great missionary so he is always giving us tips on how we can improve and have more success. Congrats to him and his new journey ahead. The wedding was great and made my comp and I excited for this moment in our lives. Also so we were able to get alot of references from his friends and family members at the party.
  In our area we have a part that is super rich with builds and the other part is alittle more humble. Since all of our investigators are traveling in the richer area, I thought it would a great adventure to get to know the other part. Lets just say it was a workout and half. We walked down this mountain and after we found some great people to teach we had to hike out of it. (picture included)

we are working hard to prepare a few people. This week Victor and Julio are going to receive the priesthood! We are so proud of them that they are making all of these sacrifices to follow the Lords commandments. I feel like this is my last week in Aguas claras since we have transfers but who know!

Love my mission

Com amor,
Elder Seth
