God is giving us many blessings

February 16, 2011

My comp. is from Fortaleza. His name is Elder Barroso. He only has 4 months left but he isn’t trunky.  He cooks really well. I just got done eating some homemade pizza and it was pretty amazing. I made a salami, cheese, olives and tomato pizza — it was pretty amazing. I loved it. I am pretty tired now though. Pretty tired.

Well, this last week was pretty good. We are making a lot of progress as a zone and we are really getting a lot done. I mean it is pretty sweet. We have seen some amazing improvements in these last two weeks. This last week in our area was pretty good too, we were able to find some really awesome families to teach. Really elect families, so it is really going pretty well here. God is giving us many blessings. So many blessings.

It also rained hail this last week. It was a terrible day and then it started raining hail the size of marbles. I am not joking they were immense pieces of hail. I didn’t have my camera so I didn’t take any pictures. Sadly I didn’t take pictures.

Yeah, I don’t know when this whole passport thing happened, it was pretty recent I think. Our mission is only getting 3 missionaries this transfer and 7 or 8 are leaving. We are getting 2 Argentines and 1 Uruguayan so it will be pretty interesting because Brazil hates Argentina. So if he gets in that would be sweet but we don’t do multi-mission stuff. Actually our mission goes into Minas Gerais a bit. I could be going there one day. I sure hope he gets here that would be sweet.

Man, it is great to hear that everything is going well with basketball. I hope Preston can go play in state that would be great for him. Wish him good luck for me.

I did start taking more pictures. So don´t worry. I will also make a few short films because that is always way better than photos. I made a sweet one of my companion and me passing through the jungle to get to another appointment — you guys will like it.

I got my haircut and I got my gel. Now I am good.

Sorry, you will have to forgive me my comp. is anxious to leave so he can sleep so I’ve got to go.

But hey, it is weird that so much is going on. Can you believe that it was a year and it passed by so quickly? So fast. Everything will be different when I get back I am afraid.

Well, we are doing a great work and we are having a great time. I mean it is all good. I will explain a little bit more about the families that we are teaching next week all right. I love you all and I hope that you all have a great week.

I also ate this crazy cool fruit the other day. It was pink and purple and the part you eat in the middle is clear. It was the coolest fruit ever. I will look up the name so you guys can see it too.

All right I am out. I love you all and I am learning so much here. It is crazy that my understanding and everything has grown so much — I am so happy. I love being a servant of the Lord, it is the best. I hope you guys also are doing the missionary work!!!

See ya - tchau!!!
