Because I’m in the middle of a transfer, I may just keep this short.
I am in a new area with a new companion, Elder Deffense, from California! We are re-opening an area where the missionaries almost killed themselves. One of the first experiences we had when we arrived was talking with the members on our street. They all think that the missionaries are children and just play around. Sooo…. we have to rebuild the confidence in missionaries here. But as of right now my suitcases are still in Barroso with Elder Mondonça. Hopefully, I should be getting them tonight.
Today has been a rough day with transfers. I have been riding buses all day. I’ve had one of the craziest adventures of my life dealing with Elder Deffense’s suitcases!!!!
The house appears to be nice... but we’ll see. We’ve only had time to drop Elder Deffense’s suitcases off. But, I noticed that the materials the previous missionaries used for making their “fire rocket thingy” were all still there, and the sink is broken because they ripped the faucet off the wall for water. So who knows? But we are planning to really work this area, to work this area a ton. This area is good and missionaries can leave this area with a ton of baptisms
I have not had a real companionship study in a long time. However, my Portugusê is way, way better because Elder Mondonça spoke no English. So that was rather good for me. I have been speaking Portugusê enough, that at points today I had trouble speaking in English which made me really, really excited!!! Well, happy.
It’s really weird to think that I am slowly coming up on 5 months. I can’t believe that I have been here for this long!!!
Oh!!! I received a ton of letters this past week! Unfortunately I can’t remember who, but I will try. Jessica Boggs, Kendra Boggs, Maren Dunlop, one from you with a bunch of people... one or two from missionties. One was from Grandma and Grandpa. Sorry... it was like 10 letters.
I still haven’t gotten your package, but maybe my Zone leader picked it up today for tomorrow delivery. I did see him with a box, but I don´t know if it was mine.
Well, that is all I have for this week, hopefully we will have more for this upcoming week!!! I miss you all and love you all so much!!!
