Not Sick Anymore!

Elder Olivier sent this email today!

Working here in Manaus is definitely a lot different than working in my last area. I´m in a different state so almost everything is different- the people, the culture, the food. It´s crazy how within the same mission areas can be so different. 


I´m still adapting to being in Manaus. Manaus is wayyyy hot. This week I actually got a little sick with dengue, so I had to rest for a couple of days until the effects passed. Now I´m 100% better! 

This week we had zone conference, which was actually combined with another zone. The zones separated and we gave a short training to our zone, then they combined again and President Castro, Sister Castro, and the assistants gave training. Good stuff. 

A thing that Sister Castro challenged the mission to do is to read the Book of Mormon, underlining the names and titles of deity. It is amazing to see how much the Book of Mormon talks about the Savior. Joseph Smith once said that through reading and pondering the Book of Mormon, a man can get closer to God than he can through any other book. I know that to be true. 


Have a great week!

Love,
