July 8, 2013

FAMILY!!!!  How are you all doin??  I hope everyone had a great fourth of July!  I sure didnt see any fireworks! hahah.  This week was a great one with Elder Neris.  He is my new companion and he is from the northeast part of Brasil.  He is a shorter brown dude and looks just like Carlton Banks off of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. haha.  He is a great kid and we are working really well together.  His birthday is on the 13th of this month and then mine is the week after.  We are gonna have some good times.  There is also a new American living with us from Pennsylvania.  He looks just like Harry Potter.  I am living with tons of famous people here! haha.  I am missin Carvalho tho, thats for sure!

This week we knocked a lot of doors and talked with a lot of new people to try to find people to teach.  We taught the first lesson, the Restoration, a lot, which is normal.  We found a lady named Maria.  She is super catholic, but as soon as we got talking about the first vision, she went absolutely silent and just smiled! haha. it was pretty cool!  we left her a BOM to read and we are going to visit her tonight.

We also met with Bruno again and taught him the Plan of Salvation.  His mom listened to our message for the first time which was really cool.  They are such a great family!  The lesson went good, but we still have a hard time getting them, and our other investigators to come to church.  We are going to visit them again on Wednesday.

English Class is getting a little better.  We have about 3 students each class! hahaha.  But we did find a new investigator to teach.  His name is Ariel and is really curious about religions.  We taught him the first lesson and gave him a BOM as well.  We will follow up with him again on Saturday.

Our neighbor that we met this week has a ranch with tons of fruit.  He is such an awesome guy and invited us to go visit it.  It looked like the Amazon rainforest! haha with tons of trees, a small waterfall, and small ponds and streams.  He let us pick as many pieces of fruit as we wanted.  So we brought home about 10 sack fulls.

I hope everyone is doing great at home!!  I sure did miss having the 4th of July with you guys!! haha.  I love you all and hope that you have a great week!!!  Tell Morg that I love her too!
