Hey hows it going everyone! 

This week was a bit hectic i got to talk to a bunch of crazy people and what not so that was cool. We had some guy enter the church and he raised a staff and started to speak real loud during the passing of the sacrament so that was intresting. He said he just came to take santa ceia because God will bless him with a beautiful and rich wife... Not to sure if thats how it works bud... but that was something funny that happened. 

Other than that I have to go. This week Im short on time Ill be going to fly a kite here soon.

 Hey, hows it going everyone!

This week was pretty interesting we had an emergency transfer and 2 people from my district went to a city out in the middle of the sticks so that happened. i have a new comp now hes american and has about 5 month out in the field so i have to translate a fair amount because at time he dosent understand or the other person dosent understand so thats always fun. thats waht happens when your a district leader you just kind of go withthe flow you help the people transfer when that kind of thing happens. 

This past week i made 9 months out on the mission and times flying. it snaps by and your at 3 months then 6 then next thing you know your at the end. this can apply to life also so take some time and dont live life to fast slow down and smell the roses.

I was doing a contact with this lady and some lady who was high came up and asked me if I was mormon and if I was going to kill her children agan along with some other stuff. Then she asked me if I was dead. I really wanted to say yea Im a zombie and Im living again talking about God and bringing the gosple to everyone here in brazil. but... I held back and didnt say anything it wpooould have been funny if I did though.

Hey everyone hows it going!

I hope the fourth of july was good! I saw a bunch of picture in the emails you all sent of the fire work. 

This week I would like talk about Back Home. This past week was the Fourth of July at times we forget what this time of your is really about. This time is a time to honor those who have fallen protecting the American Dream. A time to honor those who died in order to make this country what it is today. Living in another country has made it very apparent to me how great life is there. The american dream isnt just apart of our own country its a part of the world. Everyone else in the world has seen the things that are possible and want to be able to have the same kind progress that we have back home! Use this time to be thankful for what our armed forces have done. Be thankful for the fact that you have the freedoms that you have because some one was brave and took a stand. America is the greatest country in the world. Dont forget that. Thanks to alll of the brave men and women of the armend forces who have made all of our dreams possible.
