This time I had less time to write cause I’m finally sending photos! I hope the quality ends up still good cause I cut the size down with some Brazilian program on the computer. lol That’s how it works. =)
Let’s see…. the package of goodies- I miss skittles and Reeses and root beer barrels! Yup, that’s basically my request. Doesn’t even have to be big. Ha ha
So the rest of this last week, we had a reunion with two 70s, Craig Christiansen (of the presidency of the 70) and Marzagati (I think that’s how you spell it, idk). It was way cool! I ran into Elder Dial there. It was fun to talk with him quickly. Let’s see…. this week we had a lot of appointments fall through but we got some really good new references so I am excited to start working. We might have 3 baptisms here in 2 weeks, with 3 more on the way, so it’s going very good! I hope that all is well in Washington with everyone. Wow, this keyboard’s space bar is broken - it drives me nuts! erg.
I am really starting to learn a lot about being a missionary cause I am studying a lot the stories in Alma about the sons of Mosiah! Also I was reading the BOM in Portuguese and Spanish at the same time, and I found a grammatical error in Portuguese. Woo! Cool, neh?
I am pretty exhausted. We are running around a lot these days. I have started using tie clips and now everyone in the zone is using them. It has become the new popular thing. =`) So yeah, I’m cool.
I still can’t believe that the time is flying by so fast.
Oh, we had interviews with Pres Pinho Friday...nothing new or fantastic, just normal.
I have been eating lots of chocolate.
How’s Erin in Spain? Is it spantastic?
Sorry, there aren’t question marks. This keyboard is in English, but programmed in Port, and there is 1 more line of buttons here, and so there isn’t a way to make them.
Elder Sabino is alright. He’s still super depressed all the time, but I goof around with him always. I’m learning how to just always be happy, it’s kinda fun. I will survive!
Pictures that Elder Blackford sent. I hope I have identified them correctly. Sometimes it's not clearly labeled when he sends them. :-)
