American Companion

Opa!!! so it turns out, my companion was involved in a mini transfer so I'm have a new companion now, Elder Wagoner, an american with exactly one more year than me. It's kinda weird to walk around with an american all day I won´t lie. I'm still not sure about this speakin english business. Anywho, he's basically the MAN and we get along really well. Also, he reminds me alot of Jeff( as in cousin Jeff) which is cool. Our area is going pretty well now that were doin that work thing where you actually leave the house, we had a ward integration activity on friday which went about as well as the last one I did in Jordão. Which means we had a million children uncontrollably screaming and running around while we tried to tie their legs together to do a three legged race and organize other such activities. It was good though I think everybody made it out alive. As far as other interesting facts, today I went paintballing which was quite the Pday activity. I only won one of the games but I guess I just wasn't a born fighter. I suppose chistmas is around the bend, or at least that's the word on the street, but I'm having a hard time believing it based on current cliate conditions. Excited nonettheless. Well I dont really have much Pday left plus my hair is looking pretty shaggy so I'd better run take care of that but a good week to all.

December 6, 2010

Well, we made it through the weekand it looks like my companions alive, but I'll have to verify that just to be sure. It was a pretty eventful week if you know what I mean. I didn´t quite finish my BOM goal but at least I got to about page ten. I actually ended up doing divisions and working in the office inputing baptismal forms into the computer though. I guess President wanted me to keep working or something, but I haven´t quite nailed down why yet. It was actually kinda funny though, the other two missionaries in the apartment got sick too. I think they started wondering why there was just one missionary free of disease. Luckily I'm pretty sure they never realized I was poisoning their food so I think I'm good. I found out that lady in my last area who had a dream as a response to her prayer got baptized yesterday so I'm pretty happy about that. It was a pretty neat experience. Anyways, I'm outta time but thanks so much for the emails, Dan it´s good to hear from you, I'll try to get a letter out soon. Have a good week!
