Ola minha família!
I am doing great! We had 2 more baptisms this week. Men, priesthood holders. Better yet Rosa´s sons. It was great! the change in that house is unbelievable. It went from a house full of sadness and sorrow to a home of light and hope. I can´t even believe it. I love this work. Unfortunately it isn´t totally happy all the time. Some times people reject you and stuff but really it isn´t too bad. I just have to remember that Christ who was completely perfect was rejected. How much more will I, being imperfect, be rejected. I love Brazil but the religious roots here make it difficult for some people to accept. Luckily things are going great we are finding people ready to be baptized. We are finding amazing people. It is great.
It is weird the change that i have already seen in myself. I mean my personality isn´t amazingly different. the changes really are in my thoughts and desires. I Just want to serve God. A thing that is amazing I don´t even think about other things much anymore. It is weird. It shows to everyone that through reading praying and service everything can change. Things so small and basic it is crazy.
Our new mission president is call President Marshall Tanner. He is good. Way different than President Castro.
My comp is native. He is really a good teacher and a well educated guy. He speaks English and he is from a city 3 hour from the mission. I am getting along with him well and we are working pretty good. I hope i am not to weird to him. I mean i am a pretty mellow guy but i do have my own faults and stuff.
Well it is great to hear that everything is going really good in Oroville. I mean it sounds like you guys are doing amazing. visiting family hanging and having fun. I am happy that you guys are so happy!
Hmm… Taurie and Grandma and Bryce all sent me emails. It is nice to receive emails from other people. I will write taurie today and I already wrote Bryce. Can you send a message to my grandmothers that I am doing amazing I am working hard and I won´t stop. My comps are good and life is great. The weather here is starting to get hot again too I can´t wait for a Brazilian summer. But just let them know that I am doing great I am loving this work and all is well.
Hmm what else… I can´t send pictures to you guys because this computer won´t recognize my card thing I will try to send them next week so that you can see my comp. and the people we are baptizing.
I don´t even know what else to write about. I am kinda out of ideas. I hope this email isn´t too boring. I just want to let you guys know that I love you all and i hope that you have an amazing week filled with happiness and stuff. I just want you all to know that I love you guys a lot. I am doing great and I am working hard. I love hearing about what you guys are doing too. It is great to hear about normal things sometimes. I love you and if i forgot to mention something I will send you another email. I love you and I wont to let you guys know and remind you guys to keep on reading and praying so that you can feel the spirit more and resist the attacks of the devil. Have family home evening too. Só isso.
