But, still no visa yet, so i will get my reassignment next wednesday! I think they might let me call home when I get it, but that might be just a rumor! I just want to get out in the field and teach whether its in Brazil or not! My Portugues is getting a little better! Sometimes in my journal I will accidently write the Portugues words instead of the English words on accident! Carson! Parabem para beisbol! Isso e muito otimo!!!! Eu gosto as picturas! You rock buddy! I loved getting your letter! And that was a very good self portrait you drew on the back! Hahahah!
I hope Connors volleyball tournament went well! That is so exciting! It sounds like there is alot of cool things going on at the house! I miss you guys so much its ridiculous! So this Sunday is a general authority sacrament meeting so everybody is going to be meeting together with a general authority, porbabaly one of the apostles! Im so excited! I am going to use my district leadery powers and try to sign our district up to pass the sacrament so I might have the chance to pass to a general authority! We will see!
Also!!! I finished the Book of Mormon today! I started reading it from the beginning the first day of the MTC and I just finished today while I was at the temple! Oh my gosh, it was one of the most powerful experiences, ever. I finished it and like felt absolutely amazing I can't even describe the feeling! So cool! So now I am on to the New Testament and I'm going to try to finish that by the time I leave here!
We are starting new Progressing investigators (our teachers acting like investigators and never breaking character) and so I am excited for that! I can officaially teach a whole licao em Portugues without any notes or anything! Its pretty cool! Its funny becasue I can teach about almost any gospel lesson, but if I had to buy something at the store in Brazil I wouldn't know where to start! So, thats what i'm working on this week is non gospel talking! Its is going to be pretty fun!
I also love my district! We pulled an awesome prank on Elder Wilkinson yesterday! He always is worrying and talking about visas and so I walked in and said Elder Harris and Lydikson needed to go get theirs form the zone leaders and he was like flipping out!! Hahaha I love them.We know how to have fun, but we do a great job of working hard I think!
Anyways thats whats happening here! I hope everything is going well back home! Love you all!!!!
