Here, pretty much everyone comes to the chapel on Sunday in church attire, but on Saturday, about half watch at home. They have translators who are translating conference in real time and that is what is broadcasted to the chapels across Brasíl.
I don´t know if it is just because I´m a missionary and therefore more sensitive to comments about missionaries, but it seemed like just about every speaker talked about the responsibilities of members in helping the gospel grow.
The missionary work in Ipê is going well and we are preparing what will be a wonderful wedding and baptism! This coming week will be very busy :)
Also... The mission rules have changed regarding email. We now have more time to send email and can send and receive emails from anyone who lives outside our mission boundaries, and people of the same gender within. This includes anyone back at home who would like to. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
