Cabeça Carreira


Elder Andrew Todeschini

Week 28: "nu ta kaska midju" (We can shuck corn)

Like every other week we walked txeu but its totally worth it. I'm lovin the work here and I'm excited to see the work in Cabeça Carreira keep growing. The two things that stood out the most to me this week both have to do with corn, which kinda makes sense because our house is in the middle of a corn field. So on Tuesday we get to an appointment and the lady is shucking corn, so we rolled up our sleeves and got to work (except we were wearing short-sleeve shirts so we didnt actually roll them up). We ended up working for about an hour and a half and our pants were super dirty by the end but it was a small price to pay to be able to help someone. Then on Wednesday we had an adventure after teaching someone. We went to her house from the church so we took a road, but to get home it was faster to cut through a corn field. So at 8 oclock at night we cut through a corn field and walk for 10 minutes before we find civilization again. It felt a lot like we were part of a horror scene. I dont have a ton of time to write more but I just want to leave my testimony that I know that God is our father, and that He will respond to all of our prayers according to His infinite wisdom. If we dont know something, we have to study it out and He will answer our prayers when we ask for this knowledge (James 1:5).
Love yall!
