January 6th, 2014

HELLO MY WONDERFUL FAMILY!!! So first off, thanks for all supporting me and whatnot, I loved all the emails that I get from you! Thank you so much, you are a wonderful family! So this week was pretty awesom, as are allll the weeks on the mission! So first off all, for new years we went home at like 7 o clock because the streets can get a little crazy in Brasil during the New Years, so we bought a bunch of fingerfoods and whatnot and ice cream... lots and lots of ice cream.... So we passed the New Year playing ping pong with the ping pong things you sent me, eating ice cream and finger foods. It was pretty cool, but of course nothing beats spending Holidays with the family.

A few updates on Claudio and Marcelo, yesterday they recieved the Aaronic priesthood and are still so excited about the church. They are super smart and think of some theories that are a little bit "strange"... and so yesterday they told us a theory they have. Recently in Rio Grande do Sul and Argentina there have been sightings of "o chupacabra"... a monster that sucks the blood out of goats and dogs and whatnot... And they told us... o chupacabra doesnt exist, they said that its vampires that invaded this world through portals that are in the middle of Rio Grande do Sul and Argentina... Yeah... But they back it up with science and it kinda makes sense what they say... Either way they are so happy to be members of the church because they said they can already see a difference in their life.
Anyways we are also teaching Jovelina, who ended up getting pretty sick but she got better and went to church yesterday! She loved it and is good friends with the members already and it is fitting in awesomely actually! She will be baptized this Friday and she is so excited!!! And I am too. She is seriously a miracle! I feel like she was a direct blessing for the obedience that I had with Aramayo, because as soon as he left, she found us and yeah. But I am so happy for her, because she is seeing that the gospel is already blessing her life and giving her comfort, and I cant wait for her to find allll the happiness that can come from the gospel!

So yeah I am very excited for all the cool things that will happen this next week! Thanks for being so amazing all so much! Connor Im so proud of all the missionary work that you are doing!!! Ele é o cara! I love you all so much! Thanks for the support you give me!! Tchau!
