Companion: Elder Thomas
From Herriman, UtahHey guys,
It was nice to get emails from everyone, sounds like everyone is doing good. I hope all of my buddies will get out on the mission asap, it sounds like a lot of people will be going soon. Do you know if Ryan is in the field yet? if so I'm going to email him.
Brian´s looking good rockin the mullet! ha ha.
I'm working on getting a package together to send home to you guys with a disk and some other little stuff. its just hecka expensive.
This week was another crappyish one. Elder Thomas and I are working SO hard... but we´re not getting anywhere with any investigators, we had nobody at church yesterday, we´re teaching people, marking people´s baptisms but everything is falling. We still have 1 marked for next week. We´re getting them married on Wed. and baptising the wife next week. This week we worked really hard, taught a bunch of lessons.
Right now I'm on a division with some Elders in another area. Elder Thomas is in Maceio because he has a meeting tomorrow, so I stayed here last night and I´ll sleep in this area tonight then tomorrow morning I´ll go back to my area and do a division with a kid from my ward.
How´s the hunt going? when I was in Macieo at the start of my mission I stayed with an Elder from Randolph, he´s sick, he showed me some pics of some huge elk and antelope from that area. Good luck pa you´re lookin fresh with your beard. send me some jerky....lol.
Today we´re just hangin out in the center of Aripiraca, We´ll go fishing later in the transfer. I´ll write letters today and try and get them sent. I got your packages and some letters, that is what I call pure joy. ha ha the two sources of happiness on the mission: agua aka baptisms and letters.
I started the Book of Mormon in Portuguese this week. I´m gonna try and have it read before Christmas. I´m just really slow in Portuguese, the language is coming good though.
