October 3, 2011
Well, I am actually watching the Priesthood session right now as I email you.  Conference was very good. I was a little "put off" by a number of the messages though. Last conference was about what... marriage... get married fast!... this time... there were some parts about children... faster and sooner! I heard that and about died!!! I was like, I am still getting use to the idea that you want me to get married and not play around... and now this!!!!! Wait for me to get home first!!!!! haha.
I am in Conjunto Ceará with Elder Harris. He is from Riverside, California. He started his mission in Pocatello, Idaho and then got his visa and came here. So he has nine months, six here in Brasil.  I am actually almost back in my first area. I am right next to it. This area is good. I am actually taking care of two wards... which meet in different buildings... on the opposite sides of the two areas... at the same meeting time... someone didn’t plan this out real well. haha.  I still miss Parquelândia. But the ward members here appear good. We were supposed to have two baptisms yesterday, but they were there and decided to wait. It was rather disappointing. But, hey, what can you do. We were kind of caught off guard by them changing their minds.
It is weird, every once in a while I have one of those moments where I realize I am coming to a close in my mission. I am living with a missionary that has less than 5 weeks now and I follow shortly after. I have only four transfers left. A lot of time if you look at it but living a little over five months as a missionary is nothing. It is weird.
We are short on missionaries here, really short. We need like another 20-30 but we don’t have them. They have asked Brazilians to stay more time if they can and would. I asked President if I could stay, but we can’t because the church won’t pay for another visa renewal. So I am still coming home on time.
Yea, I want scripture covers as well, but it looks like no one here does them anymore. So whatever, I’ll just stick with what I got.

I will start buying stuff in a bit. I will just bring it all home with me. It would be over 200 or 300 reais to mail a package home. But I will leave almost all my clothing here for the other missionaries.  I will have a lot of space to bring stuff home for you.

I sent two emails home with pictures and hope that you got them. If not, let me know and I will try again the following week.

Tell the man at work that we go on missions because it is a commandment of God to do this.

What is the band show this year? What is the theme? Try and send a video!!! haha

So since you asked me to start buying stuff I wish to ask a question as well. Mac... or PC... If I have a pc, I will prolly play games. If I have a Mac, maybe not. But if I buy a PC I save money if I buy a Mac, I will not. So which do I get a Mac or PC?

 Well, my time is up. I love you all and wish you all a good week!!! Send me news from home!!!
