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, Continued From LAST Week
Hello, hello, and CHRISTMAS!!!!
We had an eventful week, we ate and went to a conference and
found more interesting things. So, I tell stories.
In the last couple of weeks we've been working with marriages
and people that are rather interesting. We've entered a few homes and are
teaching a few families that are quite caught up in the culture of Street
fighter, a few gold investigators. and STAR WARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (my current
companion is a little crazy about that) In the end I have some fun stories to
We were warned about it, but one of our investigators
Salete, IS TRYING TO FATTEN US!!! In our last two visits we've eaten cake like
gluttons. In the last visit, almost against my will, I ate more. She is very
excited about learning and will likely be baptized here soon.
We have that other family that let us in almost without
explanation of who we were. The father works like a machine, but he's very
receptive and I hope we'll get to go back and talk more. We'll likely be
talking about them quite a bit here soon.
Street fighter and old cars is another fun topic. The Bird
on the chest of my comp. is the pet of the dad of two investigators (His
daughter and his son-in-law.). And they play Street Fighter together. Along
with that, they have an old bug and a Chevette hanging around in working
condition. They aren't new, but they sure are sweet.
Christmas is coming, AND SO... Missionaries go caroling, did
you know that? I DIDN'T! and they had a violin so it wasn't so bad.
And after a conference where we got up at 4:30 in the
morning, drive for about 3 hours, and then return after 5 hours of conference,
I WAS TIRED. But all's well that ends well, and I learned a lot.
Star Wars... We're hearing about it, we want to know more,
BUT DON'T SPOIL WATCHING IT FOR US!!! We actually have a lot of nerds around
that are all over it now. If you guys are putting light sabers on your wall in
that Face book thingy, be wise on the colors you choose!
In the end, it's been a great week, Thanks everyone for the
letters, E-mails and best wishes! Merry Christmas!!
