Week 2 in the MTC

Week 2 feels a lot longer than week 1.  All the days are long and they all sort of blend together, but we're learning lots and the language is coming along fine.  We're able to understand our teachers pretty well but then we try to watch a Mormon Messages Video in Portuguese and only catch about 5-10%.  The natives talk A LOT faster.

We have two new FAKE investigators, Roial and Paulo. Paulo smokes pot and Roial usually falls asleep during our lessons.  During our lesson with Roial, he offered us "invisible" food and it took us about 10 minutes to figure out it was a Strawberry Cupcake.  If they talk about church stuff I can understand it but anything else, I'm clueless. They're definitely trying to prepare us for the real mission field.

We had a surge of Visa's come through in our zone.  I think we had 7 in total but they were all from the Atlanta and Washington, DC consulates.  Houston needs to pick up the pace.

Rumor is we're getting another Apostle to speak for Thanksgiving.  Hopefully we get a nice Thanksgiving meal too!
