HNA hall has been somewhat inferma of stomach during the week, but it is much better now: D I'm trying to do something nice for my mates every week this year and this helps me a lot to love them as my own. : D We are working with a young family, a little flighties but they are very good and want to learn. The only thing they have left to change is they play soccer on Sunday. 
I'm also learning portuguese now: D I'm very good at counting to ten and saying the word tithing: D i just gotta learn it in the next four weeks before she goes home :D

Missionary Dress Guidelines Revised

 to Help Prevent Mosquito-Borne


Dress guidelines for missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been revised for men and women serving in areas around the world impacted by mosquito-borne viral diseases such as Dengue Fever, Chikungunya and Zika. The new missionary health and safety guidelines were announced by the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Friday, May 20, 2016.
In the 230 missions, or roughly half of the Church's missions, where there is significant risk of mosquito-borne diseases, missionaries are strongly encouraged to wear clothing that covers exposed skin, especially arms and legs. Sister missionaries serving in the affected missions are encouraged to wear full-length dress slacks during proselyting activities. They will continue to wear skirts or dresses when attending the temple and during Sunday worship services, conferences and baptismal services. In areas where it is not acceptable for women (including sister missionaries) to wear dress slacks, they are encouraged to wear long skirts to protect themselves from mosquito bites.

The new guidelines apply only during the wet seasons, when the risk for mosquito-borne illnesses is high. Information is being sent to all mission presidents and will also be provided to newly called missionaries. Those areas include parts of Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Mexico, Pacific, Philippines and South America.

In addition, the Church has announced it will now pay for permethrin insecticide solution and DEET-containing insect repellant for all missionaries worldwide. Full-time missionaries in mosquito-infested areas have been encouraged for many years to wear permethrin-treated clothing and regularly apply DEET-containing repellants.

“We are encouraging and training our missionary force to implement these preventative measures and would also encourage the general membership to consider these measures for themselves and their families,” added Elder Schwitzer.

“We will continue to monitor and evaluate the spread of these diseases and, where needed, make adjustments in these guidelines, giving highest priority to missionary health and safety,” said the statement from the First Presidency. “We continue to recommend that missionaries avoid stagnant and standing water, where possible, particularly around residential areas and in their apartments.”
