hows it goin pops?
before i forget, yes i get the pics you send. sounds like chads doing well. they say to learn a language you have to mess up at least 1000 times to become fluent, or in other words, hes one error closer to being fluent haha. but i dont know if that applies to bergquists haha so i dunno....that would be pretty legit to have cp3 and dwight on the lakers. weird at first. but really good. but who knows they always talk about trades like that and never do them ha. byu is a joke. but i hope they continue with this kicker just one more season. that would be great! well see. ha the 9ers are lookin good, and the ward too. i think about the missionaries there often. how little i helped them. i feel terrible at times. ha. ive repented and ill make up for it when i get home. but it sounds like weve had a couple of good duplas there....and some good member missionary work. que bêncão! love ya pops. and im here til january dont worry. unless theres some kind of emergency. tchau!
well, lets see, im sad i havent seen pictures of Krew yet, but its all good, ill have a monte a semana que vem ne? ha tanners a good guy. ha miss that kid, but im writing him so its all good. i dont know if blake said anything to you, but i wrote him last week. i wrote a book to him. ha but really it was long. but he didnt write back...i hope it went through...you scared me with all that talk about grandma. nossa. i hope all is well...and about you getting better and me praying, yeah i'll pray for you, but i dont think my prayers are any stronger then the rest of the family haha. did you think about a bencao de saude?
Well, how was YOUR week? wonderful. 3 of our recent converts bore their testimony on sunday. it was amazing. Shirlei's was probably the best, most spiritual of the meeting(not to brag. it wasnt me that converted her. i was just an instrument...) and tawilly and pauliene bore their testimony together. but litterrally together at the pulpit. it was the first time i had seen that haha. good stuff.
Who all are you teaching now? the whole bairro de sao salvador, gloria, sao jose, ipanema, california, novo progresso, laguna, filadelfia, and a couple others too haha. were teaching everyone we can!! ha
How many investigators did you have at church on Sunday? 4 ha. todos homems! que bencao! haha
How big is your ward? on the list? about 800 haha. frequencia? about 80-100. they say that an american (bonitão) passed through here and baptized like 80 women and girls and guess how many are active? i think they said 1 haha. okay so its not really that funny, but a little. i dont know how these missionaries do that. haha
Do they help you with referrals? yeah, not a ton, and ate agora havent been super successful, but they give referrals sim
Are you doing a lot of tracting? yup. you know me i love knocking doors. (actually, now that i think about it, i dont think you know me exactly how i am now haha) i think back to wyoming and how many doors i knocked and talked. (i think 1 haha) ive changed a little bit on the mission haha.
What is the weather like there? its like 90 degrees and rains almost everyday. we took a good shower saturday and monday. good times. its sucks because you leave the house in the morning and its like 90 degrees and sunny and then you knocking doors like 5 oclock and BAM! flash fllod haha. its worderful.
How are things going with Andreas? pretty good. hes just a little insecure. were trying to figure out exactly why, he says he just wants more certeza.
How is Murilo? hes doin alright. were gonnna have a family night at theie house tonight! like 20 or 25 people vão. :D
Anyone ready for baptism? were working with the jonas, the profet, we rescued him from the whale and were trying to point him in the direction of where he needs to go. we'll see where he ends up going...
When did you feel the Spirit the strongest? well i told you about shirleis testimony, we had a really spiritual lesson about repentace today with tawilly and pauliene and luciene. it was really good.
Do you know an Elder McKell or a Sister Corin? I think they were both at your Christmas conference.... i know of elder mckell. mas sister...nao ha i dont know any sisters ha
Have you gotten the packages I sent yet? (the one that Kelli sent got sent back because she didnt put enough postage on it! so she is going to send it again) no. do you realize you sent them like 3 weeks ago? it takes like 3 months for them to get here haha. and bem feito kelli haha. gotta go my credits are acabando! tchau!
