a long overdue email

Alright. Let me tell you things.

First of all, I realized that I never told you guys about how sucky our house is, which is hilarious. It REAKS (is that how you spell that?) of dog pee because the lady that lives under us does not clean ever aparently, and like, everything only kind of works, you know? So it already was horrible-with our shower that sprayed mist that was so hot it burned and a bathroom that the light didnt work and our oven that doesnt have the shelve things inside so we have to cook everything right in the fire (cookies dont turn out that great like that btw) and then, to make matters worse, our ceiling fell. that was a great day. Literally, everyone was so done like, the four of us came out and just stared, and there was a good 30 seconds of silence before we all just sighed and left the house anyway.

So then someone came to fix everything and we had the best week of our life, taking warm showers with slight water pressure and we all felt so clean and so happy

And then the shower broke again. Now we take cold showers with like, one stream of water. Awesome. Actually we're heating up water in the microwave and taking showers with a cup and a bucket. #thisisthelife

BUT we found a new house and President already approved it! So if I stay here next week (transfers already...I'll probably never see this house) we're moving to THE BEST MISSIONARY HOME I HAVE EVER SEEN. Big, well ventilated, WITH A BALCONY (it took me so long to remember this word , president made fun of me a lot)

so. yeah. Then there's the political situation in São Miguel. In brazil, the election for mayor is like, a huge thing? All the canditates have their own music which is ALWAYS PLAYING REALLY LOUD IN THE STREET ALL THE TIME. I don't even know how to explain this to you guys but its like a WAR OF THE MAYORS. Every day during our study freaking jó clemente parks in front of our house with his speakers on max playing "jó clemente é 12, jó clemente é 12, eu também sou 12 todo mundo aqui é 12!" and it could not be more annoying. Thank goodness the election is this week. His face is everywhere. Its terrifying.

We're trying a million new things this week to find investigators. Since there are like 2 members living in our area, its really hard for the ward to help us and talking to people in the street is just not working, like, they all already know us and hide because all of them are very strong members of the Assembly of God (is that a real church in the us, I'm translating the name but like, someone told me they served a mission for the assembly in the us? idk I've never heard of this church before brazil but its EVERYWHERE HERE)

I think thats it? This week was rather uneventful. Actually this month as a whole. But yeah. love you all?
