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

WHAAAA....... Brasil 2.0
the first email of the year) IS BRASIL, after seeing the whole year I now know
what to do, what not to do, and in case of emergency what to break.
The week was
full of adventures in the rain, and a few of us just messing around. I was
quite excited to learn the lessons that I needed. The good news is next year
about this time I'll be taking a break; I'm tired about 80% of the time and the
other 20% I'm sleeping or doing something active.
stories of the week: We are going to be senseless until we get to watch the new
Star Wars, and this past week we had a rapid debate about what the first things
we'll be doing when we get home. Star Wars marathons was on three of the four
lists. We also have this great card game that we all seem to have gotten hooked
on. It's like war ... only with cars,
tractors, four wheelers, fish, etc. It's
of what happens in the apartment. We have a group of people that have
CATS.(see the photo below) The kittens
are crazy. And they sleep on us while we're teaching. We also played volley
with our feet in the church grounds, which was really fun. Unfortunately, some
of our investigators have been traveling these past weeks, so that's been a
true pain. We hope they all come back this week! And then we have some good
news, and some bad news, the transfer is almost over (that’s good) the
unfortunate part is I've been here the longest, which means that I'll likely be
traveling here soon. :..(
being awake for half the night (everyone and their dog lets off fireworks on
New Year’s, EVERYONE!!) we went to lunch and we found a dog, that happened to
fall asleep in the "Idoso" parking space, which is reserved for the
aged and disabled. We are still working out if he was really "Idoso"
or if he just wanted to wake up closer to the market doors. Then there's the
endless churrasco (barbeque)! AND DON'T YOU DARE COMPARE!! We have steak and
ribs and all that good meat:a barbeque
isn't anywhere near in the States; hamburgers and hotdogs is a sad comparison.
all for this week, have a great year, enjoy the pictures, and STAY HAPPY!!!!
