November 3, 2014

haha thats awesome she called you. elder dickson was super awesome... We got along great together he was the first companion that made me able to teach in portugeuse I wouldn´t be where I am without him. We had alot of fun times together me burning food, lady that wanted me to baptize her dog, the crazzy guy all kinds of fun things. He knew how to teach super well the gospel and now Im am starting to speak portugese alot better than ever before this week I started saying some phrases without any accent! And now I can say the first vision without any accent as well I think at the end of my mission I´ll be able to speak without an american accent but we´ll see!  Elder Dickson was deffinetly one of my more normal companions for sure. I liked him a lot we are still in the same zone for another two weeks and so every thursday we see each other so its fun.  You stay strong mom!

I don´t know what I´ll do today -  mby make some cookies! Its weird because pday is the most busy day for me at least it not super relazing!! I have to write letters, clean the house, cook food for lunch, and I ran out of all my clean clothes that hasn´t happened in awhile but ohh well! I think the next pday we will go to a hisoric site of the area and see canons that had shot at people 200 years ago. Also has the first road of cobble stone in the state of Rio Grande do Sul ( Big river of the south is the name of the state that Im in) 
Soo this week we did somthing new in the area we left. We found out that there is a whole entire city that never had missionaries! So we left for the city of Pantano and it was interesting usulally people when they see us look away, cross to the oposite side of the street, or start walking super fast when they get close to us haha. But when I arrived in Pantano the people didn´t know what to think of us! We started knocking doors right away and taught a woman named Maria the first lady taught by missionaries in Pantano, she liked our message alot and we will return there on wednesday. We also found a lady who had gone to church in Rio Pardo twenty years ago! Her son Philipe had gone with us to church 3 weeks ago but had been sick so we decided to visit them. His mom Rosari had alot of questions and we ended up teaching her for two hours to answer all her questions about baptism and the book of mormon man it was a long lesson but she agreed to have her son baptized on Sunday. He is 26 but because of his accident lives with his parents but is a fairly normal guy he just seems alot younger like 18 or 20 but is super cool and is very interested in the church. We had the interview with the district leader and he passed and chose me to baptize him the next day. I was super excited but then we got a call from his mom saying that she didn´t want him to be baptized until the following week and becuase it was raining -__-  So we´re going to visit them this week and prepare them as a family for baptism this coming sunday and I hope that they can all go to church together. We also had a couple who went to church for the first time after four weeks of teaching them! They loved church alot and I hope that they can keep going. So this week over all was good Im starting to get alot better at planning and not getting lost anymore which is good!
Halloween: For halloween here in Brazil they don´t carve pumpkins sad right? But don´t worry I carved a watermellon instead it was awesome!! The face glowed red in the dark it was sweet and now we have tons of water melon to eat! 
Crikets: For some reason my mom sent me crickets in a box... And I ended up eating two of them! And the other three missionaries with me also ended up eating some crickets as well! Thank you mom! Haha my companion wasn´t able to eat it and ended up spiting it out and started to cry!
But all in all this was a pretty great week! It was fun to take the bus to another city to teach the gospel. Love you all and hope you all had a great week!
