7/6/11 Miracles do happen...

You're the man! I love you. so you're 54 this year huh? haha and 52 years at
the reunion. good stuff. thats comedy what chad said too haha, what a little
flipper. Hes gone for two weeks and thats how hes gonna text you... yup were
all moved in. and it definitely does feel good. having a room for study
slash workout, a room to sleep, a room for our clothes and luggage, a
bathroom and a kitchen all to ourselves. i feel like we live in a mansion
haha compared to our one room and a kitchen and bathroom we had before to
share with another guy. sounds like we finally got some good elders. i
remember going out with the ones we had. they had some interesting teaching
methods, im sure theyre still improving with time though... sounds like a
pretty legit 4th of july for them too, id like to go hit some balls...but
looks like ive got a little while to wait, you'll have to reteach me
when i get home. the nba and nfl players are psychos. they want more money?!
seriously? oh and by the way i literally laughed out loud when i read you're
"i'll have to meet the neighbor, or do some missionary work" comment haha.
good stuff. i think this bishop position is doing you some good. hahaha
anyway, love ya pops. até o próximo! tchau!

Miracles do happen. oh and to answer your question about when i felt the spirit the strongest this week, thats your answer. seeing the answers to our prayers, to my prayers, seeing the miracles that still happen in todays world, and not just out there in the world, but within our own family. :D
Jake, Honduras? really? is it tegucigalpa? ricky's mission?? thats would be sweet!
Chads staying at he oconnors really? that seems kinda weird...they better keep their eyes on him and kelsey, and on kaitlin too haha we know ow much shes obsessed with chad. im so excited to see weston. brittany is crazy, but thats legit, and that shirt is pretty cool too. looks like Di is actually starting to show a little, maybe the next picture the bump on the front wont be parallel with the arch on her back hahaha. tell the frogs thanks so much and i love them! i'll see what i can do about droppin them a line. and thanks for the addresses.

Yeah, that Livaldo got baptized, did you perform it? How old is he? Did he get the Priesthood yet? look at the pics. ha and hes like 28. no not yet, he was travelling sunday so he gets confirmed this week.

10 investigators at church!!! THAT is awesome!!! Did you go visit them all? Any committed? not all of them, a lot dont live here, they were visiting family. not any committed yet, well one kinda but shes mole, we'll see.

Did you have a baptism this past week? nope

Any set up for this coming week? yeah, i think i told you about angelita, we found her last transfer right at the end and shes been at church like 4 times and suddenly she decided shes ready to be baptized so we moved it up from her mole date of the 20th to this week!

AND, 100 people at church!!! WOW, THAT is awesome!!! How was this week? yeah it was awesome, but uhh...not 100 ha thats for sure.....

BTW, WHERE do you guys meet since you dont' have a building? we talked about this on mothers day, its like a warehouse thing, i dont know how to explain it

How about the guy that you taught at his gold store? he didnt show up at church, he liked that we were american though. ha

When are the next transfers? the 20th or something, por aí

What was the surprise that the sister had for you at your new house? well she cleaned all our stuff, and gave us chairs and a guarda roupa...and all that other stuff i said last week

Tell us about your "new house"... well it has a kitchen, we bought gas for the stove/oven, got the fridge working, a nice bathroom, and three other rooms, one is like our clothes and luggage room, our bedroom, and study slash workout room. it feels so huge. its bigger than most peoples houses around here...

I WANT pics!!! youre gonna have to be patient! ha next week

Did you take another pic of you out in the streets??? (for your plaque) no....i already gave you like 4 choices...what else do you want?? and what scripture should i use???

When did you feel the Spirit this week? (yeah, I know I ask this every week, but I want you to share it with us!!!) another time was in a lesson with a lady who lost her husband like 8 months ago and hardly knew anything about christ or the gospel. its crazy how excited i got inside when she said that and i had the chance to bare testimony about him to her. its cool to see the things you get excited about on the mission that i never would have before. ha and i could see parts of my patriarchal blessing being fulfilled in that lesson :)

I am trying to decide if I should teach the pearl or the Old Testament next fall, what do you think? i have no idea, i know nothing about either, i need to study those more. my comp says old testament and look for apostasy haha.

Feel free to tell us more than what I ask!!! :) no. ha jk...kinda...

I love you all! this was a great email! thank you :) some good news. hope things keep lookin up :) Te amo! Até a próxima semana!
Um abraço!
