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 tell.

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!!
