well ive been working harder than ever... its awesome i got into missionary mode its awesome... 
the only downside.... we had lunch with some members in their apartment complex and as we left the daughter left with us to unlock the door for us.... unfortunately we had to take the elevator,,, 4 guys one girl... lemme correct that 4 missionaries 1 girl and 1 tight elevator,,,, we all squished in reluctantly and ya.... she literally had a 1 foot personal bubble while the rest of us were smashed up against the wall hahaah.... then the door opened and we exploded out like a can of soda.... #girlaphobia #daaaangit
well that was the funny story,... as for the Lords work its rolling.. This area was dead sauce when i came in... now we´ve got tons of baptisms marked.... it seems like we´re never stopping its awesome.... the more i work the faster time passes its crazy.... but ya we´re working with a family right now and everything is going smoothly its awesome.... im so stoked for everything.... i hope that all goes well and that i dont get transferred. we´ll see :)
ill go where the lord wants me to go

Well this week was alright...

things didnt go 100% right but they still went pretty well
i bought a little soccer ball that i would kick around on pday and walk around the sidewalks with... but my comp kicked it into the street into oncoming traffic.... but thankfully we are in brazil!
there was a huge semi truck coming to run over the ball buuuut he swerved in the name of soccer.  HE cut off another car to avoid running over the little ball....
im happy to see that brazilians are considerate enough to put their lives and other peoples lives in danger to avoid running over a ball that has gone astray.  
I love brazil
The mission is amazing
im here for the Lord and not for anyone else,
I am learning almost too much ahah
Love you all,

Tea N' Reflections

Just a random Grandparent shoutout...  I love you guys thank you so much for finding the church and staying strong in it so we could enjoy these blessings :)

so this week bascially i went to the temple this week that was ahhhsum

the session was in portuguese! it was so cool except for the fact that all the voices were lame sauce.... thats all ive got to say about that...

i bought a book of mormon in german... so i may or may not start learning some german ya know to convert those people that speak german....  i´ll probably give up in a week.

Welllll i have been a little sick lately so every night before sleeping i sit at my desk and drink tea while gazing at my bonsai, Taiwani.  I usually feel better after that meditation time.

We have been contacting tons of people lately and we´ve found a bunch of new families to teach.  I decided to be more like Jesus and invite everyone to baptism whether or not they want it.  So ya we had tons of marked baptisms for this week,

next step is to weed out the non-believers... 

Great things are happening because of our faith and diligence.... dont worry im still alive but im barely breathing... mostly because i have to climb a cliff every day and my comp has freaking long legs so me and my stubby legs try to keep up with him.... it gets tiring.. haha

but ya be good i love you guys thanks for the emails and support.

if you write me a letter im sorry but im really slow to respond... but dont worry it will come back some time... 
Love yous guys
