Elder Pereira had his first District Meeting last week. "We did a lot of Roleplaying! It's crazy how much we do it as missionaries! :O I swear, there are two things I think I will be a professional by the end of my mission: Acting and Gardening! ;) hahaha" but Elder Pereira finds roleplaying really helpful for learning purposes. They also discussed how important the Book of Mormon is in convertion.
And it seems like it was a week for firsts as Elder Pereira went on his first exchange with the Zone Leaders. He went to Preston with Elder Francis (a friend from his home Stake) and said he learnt a lot!
"Oh my goodness! :O The Zone Leaders are Zone Leaders for some reason! You know that scripture in Ezekiel which talks about hunting under the rocks and in the holes of the rocks and stuff? Yeah, that's them!"
They went tracting and teaching a lot and Elder Pereira found it to be a really great experience. A surprise he wasn't expecting though was that while Elder Francis and him were studying in the morning, the Olympic Torch went past their street and they were able to watch it.
On Sunday, Elder Pereira was back in his assigned Ward with his companion and they had the opportunity to serve by giving talks and teaching Primary children. He says he loves his Area a lot.
Keep writing to him!
