Another week came and went in the mission field. It was really awesome to watch General Conference. I watched it all besides priesthood, I liked the talks. I dunno if it was just cuz I´m a missionary, but it seemed like they all talked a bunch about missionary work. It was all in Portuguese, They didn´t have the English TV set up. I love the prophet. I felt the spirit so strong when he was speaking, and especially when he was sustained as a leader and prophet of the church.
On Saturday we baptized 2 rapazes. Jaqson and Junior, they both are great young men and will help this branch out a lot. My area is good. I feel like the youth here are way more accepting than adults in this area.
I got an email from my son( Elder Carniero) that he baptized Maelli, a girl I taught with him in Grageru 2. That made me super happy, she was an awesome investigator.
But it´s going pretty good here, we are probably gonna start an English class here in this area; we might start this Saturday...
Thanks for all of the pics. It looks like you guys had a good weekend. Cut you hair Brian and Brandon!
(We went fishing)
It´s starting to get freakin hot. I´m not looking forward to the summer heat.
This Wednesday I have to go to an all-day leadership training.
How´s everyone doin? That’s crazy Kendrick is going to Thailand. (Mission Call)
Dad is super funny, he is just so proud of his new truck. I know how he absolutely loves to get a good deal. I can’t believe he got such a good deal, it´s good to know how to work on cars né?
I´m doing good here, I´m glad to have baptized!!!!
I know that this church is true. I am glad to be here in Brasil as a missionary.
Love, Elder Ludlow
