This week has been a crazy one. I don~t have a lot to tell you guys, so this email will probably be really short. Sorry. I just have a couple of questions.
The new house, how many rooms, how many baths?
What is the address?
Markells brother, do you know where he will serve? if not i~ll ask her.
I heard Bryan is in Salt Lake right now? Will he return when the whole ebola thing ends or is he in Salt Lake for the rest of his mission?
Anywyas, things are good here. I~m really tired today, but yeah, things are really good. This week, we went to the Bus Station to pick up a few sisters who were transferred. The sisters who get transferred always stay with us because our house is really close to the bus station. So Sister Hathaway, Sister Simões, Sister Silva and Sister Freitas arrived Tuesday night. It was great. I love talking to the Sisters just to see how the mission is in other parts of the mission. The mission is receiving a lot more missionaries because we~re starting to have a lot more baptisms. President opened one more area that is about 12 hours by bus. Can you believe it?
I~ve never had that whole bus experience, but I will. We had interviews with President this week as well. He was very happy about the baptisms, and he was laughing because I~ve served my whole mission in Goiania Norte, but he said that this will be my last transfer here in Goiania Norte, and my new area will be an area very far away where no one has ever heard about the church. I~m a little excited, but at the same time I~m a little sad because its my last transfer, and I won~t be in the zone where I know everyone. I~ll be in a zone where I know no one, and I probably won~t be serving with other missionaries. It will probably be just me and my companion in the boonies of brazil. I~ll be sure to buy all the stuff I bring home while I~m here in Goiania because at least here, everything is pretty cheap. But that won~t happen for a while. We have about 5 more weeks of this transfer, so I^m making the most of my time here. This is my favorite area of my areas I think. It will be really hard saying goodbye to the people I^ve met here in this area. But its a part of the mission, so you do what you can do I guess.
One of the Elders in my area was really sick this week, so me and my companion were running to and from the hospital bringing them food and clothes. Luckily I think this Elder will be okay. I really don~t like seeing people in pain, so the whole hospital thing isn~t that fun, but it is really funny because he~s really drugged up right now. The other day, he looked at me, started laughing and told me that I look like a Pokémon. The next day he looked at me, started laughing, and told me that I look like a banana. I was flattered. No ones ever told me that I look like a banana before, or a pokémon for that matter.
One of the times we went to the hospital, I called every member in our ward with a car to see if we could get a ride with them to the hospital, but none of them were disponivel, so I sat down and I prayed, and after I had this response... call S-. So I call S-, one of our investigators, and he says he and his wife would be happy to give us a ride to the hospital. Not only that, him and his wife made food for the companion of the sick Elder. S- is someone really neat. I~m pretty sure when he gets baptized, he will shortly become a leader in the church. But seriously. We asked him about church, and he says he really likes it, and he misses it during the week. Awesome right? Its hard to find people like that. The only problem that he has is that he smokes. He smokes a lot. This week we~ll teach him the Word of Wisdom, and see if we can help him stop.
Anyways, that was my week.
Love you guys, I~ll be sure to send some pics. I didn~t take very many.
