Coconut Head

The latest news from my goofy boy:

SO I got a coconut drew a face on it and replaced it with my head. I

t's going interesting. But the week went fine. Honestly not too much new things happened this week. We were able to help out some families get to church this week which was awesome. This one guy is really super interested and has a lot of questions so he really goes after the knowledge that we're helping him find. We also started working with this Man that is interesting. He has a drinking problem and approached us asking for help. It's good that he shows a lot of interest because of that. And we're working with him to really try and help him avoid the situations in which he starts drinking. It's cool because you start to see how the gospel and the beliefs you have are really very extremely important in the different healing processes that people have. And you can see how the atonement is better applied in peoples lives. 

 Also we found someone who has peanut butter. His daughter lives in the US and sends it to him. It's been too long. I love you guys

Angela and Jambu

The latest news from Brazil:

So this picture is Angela at her baptism. 

It was this week and It's somewhat sad I wasn't able to be present for her baptism. I stayed working with her for quite a while before we had to let her go. She wasn't all the way ready. But this week I received the news and the picture. And I am so happy that she finally got baptized. She's from my last area. 

But the week went well. I was super happy Sunday, cause this one family that we're working with a lot came to church. Like, they got there late and it was even better because of that. I'm very happy for them. especially seeing as how they are all working together to get it all done. But that just goes to show what we need to do. We gotta have some people around us to help us keep going and do what's right always. Because if not. Then it doesn't work out. I love you guys

I totally do not understand the meaning of the title of his email this week. I was at work when it came and didn't have a chance to ask. Also, I notice a disparity between how he feels about the time he has left in the mission and how we at home feel. Here is the fabulous new email for the week.

The time passes really freaking fast. Not the biggest fan of that. Seeing as how this week I reached technically a milestone. 3/4ths is gone. That's weird. But, we celebrated with a crap ton of Guarana. Which was awesome.

And I used my(rather limited) Theatre knowledge to kinda half make myself old. Which worked out. Except no. I didn't really have much in the way of supplies so I used what I had on hand. Which sorta worked out.

But, This week we had the baptism of Michael. He's a really cool kid. He's gonna turn 12 this week I think. But his brother is already a member and honestly they both are going great. They both work together on the gospel stuff and are reading the scriptures and whatnot all together. SO this is being a big thing for the family. I really hope that this helps their parents gain more interest about the gospel in general.

 But I love you guys.

The Weddings and Worms

I've been at Young Women's camp all week and haven't been able to post the latest email. Oh. My. Goodness. The boy ate a worm. What the Heck!? 

So I did not get worms. at all. But I did eat one. It's called turu. Which I just learned that in english ( thank you google) is called teredo. It's this kind of worm thing that lives in wood. It's kinda hard to get down you're throat because you want to chew but nothing happens when you do. and it's kinda slimy and in the end you just have to kinda swallow and it goes down.

But we also had a wedding of some investigators Saturday. Their baptism was not held because there are some things that they are still needing to resolve but they are showing an amazing amount of progress. So it's really awesome to see that.

I was Super happy with our ward this week. We had this new guy visiting. He was invited by members to be friends on facebook, whatsapp, every other social media they have + invited to every ward activity we are having for the next month. The guy absolutely loved his visit. And made friends. That's how it should be. Walking in there makes you a friend. I love you guys
