November 7, 2011

Well, basically this week went fast. We had transfers this past weekend. Nothing for us changed, just that now we are taking care of only one ward and luckily we ended up with the better of the two. However our house is going to get two more missionaries and half the house doesn’t even work so we are calling secretaries people to do reforms and it seems no one can do anything!!!!!!!!! So we are getting frustrated. The house really isn’t going to work so well for us all.  I am looking forward to this week. It will be hard with a ton of missionaries in the house now.

We had a good week, low numbers but good. This past Saturday we had an activity to gather references and we ended up with 38 references and will prepare everyone for our “White Christmas”, but we will have to work a lot.

I don’t receive much mail nowadays. I got the letter from Monica. It would be nice to get an email with some other pictures of everyone to see how everyone has changed.

I don’t know when I will email next week because I will lose my P-day on Monday due to the visit from Elder Bednar and Elder Costa.

The talks we have to read for their visit are good. One is in the Ensign, but I don’t remember the name of it and the other is a special one he gave to the CES or SI, whichever it is now.

By the way, I have tried to send pictures each week but the computers won’t let me for some reason.

I would like some cold weather haha. It is really, really hot here.

It was weird to watch Elder Ward leave yesterday. It was weird to think that I am close to it being me.

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

This past week has been an interesting week. We have had two huge arguments in the house. Let’s just say the Brazilians don’t get along. The one has to be better than the other. They are ridiculously prideful. Last night they fought really well, and then they come to us, the Americans, to take sides.
  So, we just stayed out of it. Then I talked with my companion explaining why he was wrong. They both think they are right. It is really quite annoying.
It appears that President Souza will be making a number of changes this transfer. Next week is the transfer and people are saying he will make more districts and zones and stuff.  We aren’t really sure what is going to happen. We also had our house here looked at to get a reform done. It is ten years old with missionaries that don’t take care of the house so it is pretty bad.  Elder Ward is getting ready to go home now. He will be home next week so it is kind of weird to see him leaving.

So Elder Bednar will be coming on the 13th of November snd it appears the temple ground will be opened. The President sent some talks for us to study before he arrives so that will be fun!

Well, right now it is hot. It rains in the morning then is really hot in the afternoon.

Well, I am doing well, still healthy, just tired.

Well, sorry that today’s email is a little shorter. It took a little bit of time to print the two talks that President wants us to read.

This week we are hoping to baptize another two people.

I love you all!!!!!
