Ola boa tarde todo mundo!One more great week! This week rained and rained and rained like crazy, but it was very good, and we´re not letting the cold and the rain get us down.
The week started off crazy on Monday night when the assistants called to tell us that we had to go the the bus station right then to pick up Elder Kakuscke´s new companion, so we got to give up the rest of or P-day to go there. We were sad to see him go, after a few good days of working with him, but we were happy that his area will be opening up again, so now we´re back to 8 areas in the zone. Not as big as zona tarumã, but its still a good zone. When we left them in their area and were waiting in the terminal for our bus back to our area we found out that the city was having a strike to lower the bus pass prices, so the terminal was like completely shut down cause there were a bunch of people surrounding all of the exits, and because the trusty Brasilian police system didn´t feel like stepping in, we got to sit on the bus waiting and waiting and waiting for like 2 hours, so we got home a little late. In the whole country of Brasil the people have been going on strike for a bunch of stuff, and it´s been crazy, in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro we´ve heard that they´ve been setting cars on fire and a bunch of crazy stuff, but here in Ponta Grossa it´s been pretty relaxed so don´t worry.
Tuesday we had zone conference, so it was the last time that we´d see president Cordon, it was sad to see him go after so long, pretty much everyone was crying when he said bye.
The rest of the week was good, we got rained on non-stop for about 3 days, so it was pretty good to go on a swim, it´s been a while.
