Visiting the statue of Christ!

Hey Fam!
So this has been the strangest mission week for me. Tuesday was McIntire´s last working day so we said goodbye to some people. Then I went with him Wednesday to the office and we did some office work until night, where we ate dinner at President´s house with his wife. Then Thursday we got up early and visited the Christ Statue, and then after that visited some other families, and then he went to the airport to fly out that night. I met up with my new comp Elder Asto from Peru. He was working in another ward in our district, so they took him out to work with me, and made his comp a trio with the ZL´s. He is really chill, has about 1.5 months in Rio. I´ll try and learn some Spanish from him, haha. We visited some really good families this week and are trying to get them to church next week. One visit was cool, the Dad of the family had just suffered a small stroke, and was recovering from paralysis in the side of his face. A protestant preacher arrived during the visit and did his prayer and everything, and then left. After that we taught about the priesthood authority and gave him a health blessing. I don´t know if he did, but I could feel such a big difference between the two. Not that the preacher had bad intentions, but that he lacked the priesthood. How happy I am to have the priesthood again on the earth. Besides that it was a good, but short week. We are really excited to see what this next week brings though. 
Love you!!
Elder Ottosen
