Thursday afternoon we were able to go through an endowment session in the temple. Diane said she could understand most of it in Portuguese.
As we were wondering what to do on Saturday we got a call asking if we wanted to go to the zoo. It sounded fun, so we went (and did have fun). We had been before so we were able to just wander around and see whatever we wanted to.
On the way back from the zoo we had a bus ride, three metro rides, and another bus ride. While transferring from the blue metro line to the green metro line we stopped briefly to check directions. By the time we got to the platform there was no train and no other people - we missed it and the other missionaries left us behind. Fortunately there was another train within 2 minutes and the other missionaries were waiting for us when we got off the train. We all made the yellow line together.
Friday we caught up on a lot of work. After work we went over to the Shopping to get some goodies. One of the things we like are the R$2 ice-cream cones from McDonalds. I eat the ice-cream on top then give it to Diane to eat the rest of the cone.

Elder Zaugg asked if I would be willing to help translate missionary applications. The member that was doing it passed away last week so they asked Elder Zaugg to fill in, but he has his own work to do as the Area Auditor and can't keep up with the number of applications. With several of us sharing the work we should be able to keep up our own work and the translations as well.
