Wow, I guess I’ll have to go shopping after this e-mail. I have a lot of things to get you! It´s hard to believe, I only have this p-day and then one more after it.
That’s neat that you talked to Amanda. I´m planning on buying a present for Danilo and Amanda today, so that I can give it to them on Sunday. I´m also going to buy a present for Wallison and Emanuelle. I´m going to develop photos from their baptisms, and then buy a picture frame, and give it to them as a present.
Well, things on this end are accelerating, each and every day. I´m trying to bear my testimony to as many people as I possibly can. We´re still in search for new investigators to baptize, but the Lord´s chosen are out there, and we´re going to find them. Elder Morales and I are doing great as a companionship, I feel kind of bad that I’ll have so little time with him. The time truly is short, but during the week, I act as if I still have a lot of time left on the mission. I´m going to continue learning, continue getting better, and continue being a leader until the moment they take my Missionary Placket away from me.
Ben and Andrew both sent me e-mails. Haha, I could tell just by Ben´s letter that he´s a little lost. Andrew´s letter was great, too, it´s amazing to see the difference in him just by the letter. However, I will say that his letter left me trunky :/
Wish Autumn a Happy Birthday for me!! She´s 18 already, I can´t believe. Her letter should be getting there soon, I sent it a couple of weeks ago. I´m super excited to see everyone, Alicia, Bentley, Mom, Dad, family! It´s going to be great.
I got my hair cut today, for the last time in Brasil. :( But the barber was one of the most interesting barber´s I’ve ever met, he´s an old man of 63 years. He moved to the US and lived there for 11 years. At one point, he decided to move to Mexico, and lived there for 4 years. He then decided that he wanted to try to cross the US-Mexican border, so he swam across the river. He was telling me that a lot of Mexicans drown in the river, or die while they´re crossing the desert. Hahaha, I thought it was the craziest story I’ve ever heard. But then, his Mom called him, and told him to come back to Brasil, so he did. What a life!
Well, I love you all lots! Tell everyone I said hi, but I’ll see you soon anyway.
Just one more e-mail from me!
