FYI we added two weeks letters into one post

June 13, 2011

So let's see.... where to start.

The normal is happening here. The ward is gossiping about the missionaries and talking trash about them which makes it really hard to do missionary work... so I am just going to baptize... if they choose to help great... but if not, tough luck for them.

Well, now warning about this part, do not start to worry.

So we we're walking to a house. And we were walking down a fairly busy street, actually very busy street. And I was looking "downish" because it was dark and I didn't want to trip on a rock. When I looked up and saw three guys and one speed up and another slowed down and they all split up. Well, we were being robbed. So two guys pull out these tiny little guns and tell us to pass our cell phones. But... we don´t have cell phones... haha
So the one guy working me was like "pass your cell", and I was like, "I don't have one".  And then he said it again and I was like "I don't have one". And he looks at me and says "seriously"? And I was like "serious". And then he gave me that look like I was so pathetic like the biggest loser in the world because I didn't have a cell. Then after they realized we didn't have anything they left. haha

So that was my Saturday night. haha. Not really a big deal. It is pretty normal here.

We also baptized yesterday!!! His name is Anderson and he is 10 years old. He is the first member in his immediate family. But he has a number of cousins that are members.

Yesterday Dante confirmed Samara. Both are people that were baptized while I was here. But almost never do you get to see someone you baptized confirm someone else you baptized because they never get the Priesthood as fast as Dante did. It was neat!!!

So hey, what do you all think about me doing a semester at the BYU Jerusalem center??? I think it would be really neat. I really am thinking it is something I want to do!!!

Well, I am indeed continuing my journal.

This week I also finished studying Matthew and almost Mark; however, in Portuguese obviously. haha

Well, I hope all is well with you all!! l love you all dearly!!!!!!

No.... I have sent you my passwords that I usually use... good luck!!!!!

Well, yesterday we baptized a girl named Samara. She is ten. She hangs out with three other girls we have taught and they tried to convince her to not be baptized. But we did a good job and she was baptized. Her mother went to the baptism and appears to be really excited for us to work with her and her other older daughter. She is one of the ditsiest girls I have ever met. haha.

Yesterday was a kind of sad day as well though. We were walking another investigator home and we made a quick stop off at a member’s house because we heard there were some problems going on. Her husband has apparently been doing something and she only found out yesterday. The first thing she did when we walked in was said that he has been lying for thirty years. So we gave her a blessing... which I still am not sure I made the right decision. My companion asked her for her full name... Which includes her maiden name and her husband’s name, but she would not at all use her husband’s name. So my companion is looking at me with those eyes like... what do I do?... so I just said do what she wishes and cut the Santos. So, I don’t know if that was the right decision. Her son tried telling her she needs the Santos but ya.... 

So how has the journal writing been??? I have missed very few days...

Hey Aunt Virginia sent a mission ties letter but it arrived from there a little messed up like the letters and stuff. Could you ask her what she asked?  I know it was a question but I couldn’t understand it because of how it printed. 

Happy Birthday Logan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was June 1st and I was like whoa!!!! Wait.... Logan’s birthday!!!!! I think Dante sent a message. haha 

Well, I am doing good. 

I am super excited for this package of mine!!!!!

I love you all!!! Have a great week!!!! 

Oh, and give my congrats for all those who graduated!!!!!!!
