Hey Mom

Hey mom!

So my new comp is named Elder L. He's African. 

He's from Cabo Verde and is definetly the most exciting companion I have had so far on the mission. 

I cannot believe how long Uncle Eric has been suffering.. It's kind of ridiculous

But anyways that's that. Our baptism fell through again! 

We have a lot of people on date for the 5th.

Yesterday was tough... We went running trying to get people to come to church and NOBODY came... We were sad ariving at church but then a miracle happened and this dude named Maranhão came to church!

I Could Talk More

Dear Mom

Reading your letter brought back a few memories this week. It looks like now I'm not the only one who has broken a bone in this family. And Drew broke himself worse that I did, so it looks like I lost that record. Oh blast...

God's hand is in all things. Can you see it?

So this week was good. Yet another 2 baptisms fell through, but this we we will baptize for sure! It really is quite saddening when somebody uses their agency the wrong way.

I could talk more about what happened this week.. But I think I would be able to express my feelings better through my testimony,

I know by the power of the holy spirit that through the atonement of Jesus Christ we can be cleansed of all impurity.

Hey Pops
That's really louco that Drew broke his self. Yeah we stopped teaching R. a good missionary must be ruthless in dropping his investigators. I remember the first person I ever dropped was named J. I got really sad.

I know that Jesus is the Christ. 
and that Joseph, is the Smith.

Hey Mom! 
So first things first... There is a Brazilian missionary down here who is patiently waiting the email of the S daughter. Please respond.

This week was tough because our baptism fell through... which was a real bummer. But at the end of the day we found a  less active family with children who are not baptized and they want to come back into the fold and baptize their children! So that was a milage de jesuis. (miracle of Jesus). Then I remembered, there is no such thing as a "bummer" on the mission. just milagres. just milagres. (miracles)

Elder P is very new... we still have some of kinks to work out before he becomes a more effective missionary. It has become a challenge.  

Our teaching group is real week.

L Tom Perry died yesterday. He is one of my favorites.

love you all

(I replied to his letter right away with the concern that sharing an email of a female relative of his with an unknown Elder in Brazil seemed weird.  This was his reply)

Awwww mah it doesnt have to be like that. This is the true church of Jesus Christ. He's just a missionary. In the mission people trade emails all the time. I honestly don't even know which one to ask... I guess the one with the most appropriate age. Yeah ask her Mom's premission! but also you've gotta be smooth about this yo. Just tell her that there is a missionary that would like to talk with her. If she says no it's alright. I think she might like a pen pal. Don't make it sound like there is a Brazilian stalker guy who wants her email for unrightous purposes, because it's none of that.

Love you Maham!
yo sun.
