Dec 16, 2013

Hey family!
So this week was such a great week. 
But to start it off. I need to know how I skype you guys. LIke to what account I will call. And I need to know what time. It will probably be better for April to call first. Or we call together? I dont know. You guyd figure it out and let me know. 

So.....I did not get transferred. I cant believe it. I am really excited to finish the 12 weeks of training with my comp but this is my fifth transfer in this area....I know this are better than people who have lived here for years.... 7 months in the most difficult area on the mission. President Andrezzo told us that Bandeirantes is the hardest on the body in the entire mission. And he never ever leaves someone in an area longer than 4 transfers....haha Beleza. haha. No honestly I am excited because we are working with a really solid group. I am excited to get back working with them. Obviously there is something that I am not getting right here cause the Lord is asking me to stay another 6 weeks. Maybe this time I will be able to get it right. haha. 

So this week was pretty sweet. We had a good time. I forgot to tell you but two weeks ago I think I might have broken my big toe playing some soccer in the street against some kids. If we won, they had to go to church. If not, we had to buy them a coke....haha. Ya my toe got destroyed because the street is so uneven. haha. But it doesnt matter because we won 7-6 and they all went to church that next Sunday. And two of them will be baptized. haha. That was in the area when I went with the Assistents. It was sweet. 

This week was good. Like I already said. Nothing too crazy has been going on. We are working really hard with our group. We have an investigator that is progressing in everything. And I mean everything. Expect....she doesnt go to church...Well at least she hasnt gone yet....Man its hard. I dont know what to do with her. I dont want to let her go becuase of all of the things she is doing. But three weeks and she hasnt gone to church yet. Its tough. I might shoot her. But we will pray about it tomorrow in weekly planning. I think we will keep her. 

That sweet little family is now down to just the teenage girl. The Mom went freaking crazy! And said that we cant teach anyone anymore. But we still go over there and teach them. haha. Shhhh. But honestly, they dont want anything anymore. Only the teenage girl. Maybe one day when they all grow up. I hope that we were able to plant some kind of seed inside of them. 

We had Stake Conference this weekend. It was sweet. M. Russell Ballard spoke. But he spoke in English and they didnt have the translation for him. SO me and another American missionary took turns translating for the entire stake. It was....pretty nerve racking. haha. It was tough. But we were able to do it. 

Lets see what else....It is really hot. Thats normal....
You all know everything about my area. Well at least you should. ALmost 7 months here. I know it better than Provo. 

O I had the chance to ordain Gabriel, my first baptism in this area, as an Elder. It was a special and emotional experience. The way the gospel has transformed this young man is unbelievable. 

Something we need to work on is trying to contact more men. Then problem is there are so many men that wont even talk to us and when they do they act like punks. But we still got to do it. 

I cut Elder Browns hair today. It turned out really good. Mom and Nicole would be proud. I used scissors and all. He liked it a lot so that was sweet. 

Alright. So that was how my week was. There are probably more things I am just not able to remember them. haha. I love you all. I hope all is well. I am excited to see you all next week. Give me the details about what time and to who I will call. Love you all and be safe.
