We've been working hard

Hey Guys,
It´s going good here in the area. We´ve been working hard. We have a lot of good investigators, but nobody went to church because it was raining way hard yesterday, so we´ll have to work hard with these people this week to mark their baptisms. We’re teaching 2 brothers and their cousin that play soccer a lot at the church, we marked their baptism but then we found out that their dad is an ex Mormon and hates us, so we´ll have to see what´s up with these kids they really like the church and received answers, but i dunno if the dad will sign the baptismal ficha. We´re also teaching a 14 year old girl, named Leninha and her mom. Leninha already has a kid; they are interested in the church but were all super sick all last week. We´re also teaching a couple that all the kids were baptized, but need to get married. A really nice little family.

It´s pretty ghetto here but i like it it´s super easy to enter the homes and teach people. My area is super, super poor. I´m coming from one of the richest to one of the most humble.. there´s parts of the grotas that are super sketchy. Theirs a bunch of drug traffickers. there’s always hold ups and robberies, but everyone know the Mormons so i feel pretty safe, the branch is kinda weak too as far as the leadership and stuff, and these people destroy the chapel. it´s kinda sad.... but I´m liking it here overall

My comp is way cool. he’s a hard worker and likes to talk lot so he helps me out a bunch.

Today we went bowling for p day. it was super fun. I got the high score of the zone, a whopping 108!!! super weak heh??? lol

Bowling with Zone
 But it was fun. I´ll send some pics. Elder chandler was kind enough to remind me that today he and i made 1 year and 4 months. that means that 2/3 of my mission has passed. crazy... (Elder Chandler is the one we met at the missionary mall when we were shopping for Bradley’s mission)

We helped build a house this week.

I still haven’t gotten any letters or packages, but we have interviews on Wednesday. we will be interviewed to get our new dvd players. we will get use them for comp study to watch trainings.

Thanks everyone for the emails, it sounds like everyone is doing good.

has bubba started driving yet?

Have a great week and be safe.
