Hey everyone! That is pretty cool that everything is going great there in little ol´ Oroville.
I am doing great this week. I am passing a phase in my mission where everything has gotten easy to do. I just need to find some more elect families to baptize and I would be in paradise. I mean, it is way hot here and I have to wear a shirt and a tie always, but I just am loving it. We work really hard and we are meeting really cool people and the members here are awesome. I am really loving it! Time is flying by too. Can you believe that in a year I will be looking for a wife? That was a strange thought that quickly passed through my mind the other day – it’s so weird how time flies.
We have our difficult times too. There is a lot of persecution of the church here, but it is normal. There is like a church war going on and it is tough sometimes because of the pride of others, but through these difficult times I have grown a lot and I now have a strong and unbreakable faith and testimony. It is so great.
Well that guy Thyago just wants a camera like mine. You can buy it and then just send the camera and the software and the other stuff in the least expensive box. He will be real happy.
This week was also a good week. We are doing a good work here and the members are happy. Today we will bring some investigators to the temple and I will have some photos to send you next week. You should like the temple photos a lot — it is such a pretty place. What I would do to have a chance to visit the Salt Lake temple.
Preston´s court of honor will be pretty sweet. I am happy that he got it. You have to take a lot of photos. I still haven’t received any photos of Christmas.
I didn’t even really want to have a court of honor. I have changed quite a bit. but I’m still basically the same guy. The changes aren’t really exterior in the way that I act. I speak differently and I am a bit more determined and spiritual. I am a lot more confident and strong. But the other changes are a bit more deep. My heart has changed. It started working better. I have a few more feelings and I am a better person. I am more like who I should be. It is a really cool change. I am also really, really red. Not tan, I am red like a lobster. It is really weird.
Kloey… I miss her. I am really glad that she is doing well — following the Spirit and stuff. That must be pretty cool.
Well what else… Oh Carnival. I don’t even know what it celebrates, it is really strange. I think it is just one big party. I will ask someone what it is about.
It has rained a lot this week too. It is pretty cool. I totally destroyed my umbrella yesterday. I mean, it rained so hard that it just broke. Yesterday was a good day. We did a split with our ward mission leader and he helped a lot of investigators so it was pretty cool.
I love you my mother. I have to go clean my house now. It has a strange smell. Next week I will send you guys some photos for sure. At least I hope I will be able to.
I love you all and I hope you finish Alma today.
I hope you have a great week. I know that I will Good-bye. Tchau!!!
