Beast of a Man


Hows it going in Alabama? Its good to hear that you are enjoying yourself there. I already got that one picture of Jesse's homecoming, yea he's a fetching beast of a man already. I was hoping that the mission would have that kind of effect on me but I'm rapidly losing hope. Cam comes home in May right? Wow, the time went pretty quick. Its getting pretty hot here. But the weather is still not sure what it wants to do. the day starts out really cold and then rises to like 90 degrees and then back down again. Let me know how my sisters are doing, and let them know I'm praying mightily for them. I love you.

Hey Family,

Well this last week flew by compared to the week before.  We started working in another area because we were kinda sick of being rejected by the same people and we didn't really feel like it was the place we should be working.  We moved our focus to another area and we've already met some awesome people.  I love teaching about the restoration.  Its so awesome.  And I think we are starting to learn how to get in houses better too.  We just give a big ol' smile complimented with a strange accent =P
Its officially become hot.  I've already gotten started on a pretty sweet missionary tan.  The "tie-tan-line" hasn't taken full glory yet but I'm hopeful for the end of the month. 

I hope everything is going well at home, stay strong and stay happy.  Its tough but very do-able.  I love you!!

Hey Family,

The new area is pretty massive and we had a good week. It's just us now so we get to make all the moves.  We taught 15 lessons in two days and marked 9 baptismal dates. And I'm still feeling the effects from it lol.  I'm so dang tired all the time now.  But me and my companion officially have 9 months on the mish today!  Can you believe that? Pretty crazy. 

Pres. Cordon challenged us to become like Moroni for just one month to see what miracles would happen in the mission.  You never really have respect for someone until you try and follow in their footsteps; Moroni is the man.

These last couple days we talked with some members and we are really stoked.  This branch is a huge branch.  They have like 110 members, and are still a branch.  We want to start doing some activities here to get everyone excited about missionary work because the only thing that is lackin in this ward is lessons with members and we would just be baptizing every week.
So I gave my first district meeting training this past Monday.  Lets just say that I left plenty of room for improvement for the next week.

My comp is a stud, and everyday is a little more funny.  From lessons with lightly buzzed bearded men holding hands with my comp during the prayer to giant rats in the street running after us.  But my time is up and I have a picture to send but I have to go, Love you and have a great week!!!

Conference and Transfers!

Conference was way awesome!  Its impossible to watch conference and not believe that those men are inspired of God.  I wish my investigators would note that lol.  We had one person watch conference and in the end all she had to question was "why do all y'all Mormons have so many kids?"  At least she noticed the important role of the family in Heavenly Father's plan.

So I got transferred again.  I am here in another city called Quatro Barras.  And something really cool happened; I am companions yet again with Elder Van Horn!!  Yay!  He was my companion in the MTC and now here in the field too!  I'm super stoked.  He's really pumped and ready to work so we are gonna try and turn this area around.  The ward isn't a ward its a Branch but the branch pres. is the man and the members are really awesome.  They haven't had a baptism in 6 months but we are gonna change that.  At least we can't make it worse lol.

Its already really funny, we both speak about the same and so when one is lost and the other one doesn't know either we just laugh.  So we laugh a lot. =P
Love you and hope everything is going good at home!!

These pictures are of me and elder v.h. and the other is of my other comp and a really awesome family  from my last area, they are all returned missionaries and took really good care of us.  And they a few of them speak English.  They fed me a lot.  Almost everyday.  Therefore I love them =)
