Behold, the field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God - Doctrine & Covenants 6:3

Brasil..... Ç And All Those Fun Accents!
Olá, e BOOOOM DIAAAAAA! [Hello and Good Morning!]
So after one more week of fun, conferences, and DRAMA!!!!
I'm still in one piece and still in Guarapuava as transfers just shaved my
head. We have a few fun stories to tell, I don't know if last week’s email made
it to the blog so I'm hoping that it's alright to just go forward.
I'm still working with that amazing investigator that fell
right into our lap, Jose Carlos. He's already stopped with the coffee; we're
now working on cigarettes. It's all good, he only smokes 8 a day. Other than
him, we have the family of a recent convert of the church that will be ready to
marry on the 20th of next month. Baptism the day after.
So my story this week comes from the trip from Xarquinho. We
were happily running along home with a member driving us when suddenly out of
the shadows we saw GARBAGE!!!! Or more like a cross dresser trying to get
picked up. Garbage. Alright it could have been worse, but ever since we passed
that corner with a member, there he/she/it was, every night, 8:40 pm on out. We
came to call this "visão urubu" [vulture vision].
But that said, we did have a cool experience this week. We
were working closely with a family that only the sister and daughters are
members. The fun thing is, ever since I've been here, the sister has never
wanted to get married, has always wanted to finish college and then work with
her parents. Everyone here knows about my study to be a fashion designer, so, she asked me to design her graduation dress and (to my surprise) wedding gown. (I
CAN'T SPELL!! English is a problem my friends.) But I think she's accepting
that she needs to get married.
Take care! Amo vocês, Cuida suas responsabilidades! Fica
firme na fé! [I love you, take care of your responsibilities! Firm in the
