Well, like I said last week, I am now with Elder Way. He is really helping me with everything. He said by the end of this transfer I will go Senior, unless I stay with him. But right now we are really working our area hard. It has had a lot of troubles in the past so we are here to turn it around! Everything is changing. The area is changing, I’m changing, and it is going to change a lot of things. The days are just going faster and faster.
This past week has been really stressful for me, because I have been Senior for the week. So I was stressed about having people for us to teach, not getting us lost, making it all work. Fortunately, I never got us lost. But basically we cut everyone we were teaching before. So it is like we are starting over, but that means we have the most elect of all the people. Every night last week I would sit at my deck and just go over everyone I knew, everyone we had ever taught. Some nights I would sit there from 9:15 until 10:20 just trying to figure everything out. But we are slowly getting into the hang of things. But I have survived my week as Senior. It was fantastic!
So, it’s my understanding that a lot of the Americans waiting to come to Brasil might have to go somewhere else. I really do hope that Spencer, Brenna and Adam get into the country. They have lowered the age for missions here to 18 so they could get more missionaries, and right now there is going to be a surge in December. Between the two wards that we cover, we had 4 or 5 people that met with the Bishop about a week after that announcement came, so a ton of Brazilians will be going out soon.
It is nice to hear about everybody, the mission calls, the weddings, etc… I wish the best of luck to all of you no matter what direction you are heading, as long as it’s a good direction!!!
It’s too bad I missed Layton’s visit to Oregon. Why did he have to visit while I wasn’t there??? Man, I would have loved to talk to him!!! Oh well!!!
Somebody better be taking care of my trombone!!! I still plan to use it!!!!
So how is the fishing and duck season? How is my puppy?
That is about it for this week!!! I really miss you all! and Love you all so much!!! Until next week!!!
