Sounds like you guys had a fun time at the beach. That's cool you guys were able to do a surprise bday party for Grandpa. I bet he liked that! The beach looks cool, and the house as well! Looks like you guys did a great job with it!
That's good Carter is doing better. Hopefully the recovery process will be faster this time around. Nick is trying to take me out to lunch tomorrow. We'll see what happens. Haha. Murray probably wants to stay inside the house and hide from the sand! Having a black lab at the beach is probably a lot of fun. Does Finn love the water and digging in the sand?
Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun family bonding.
This week I got a new companion named Elder Raposa. He's from Salt Lake. He's a really cool guy. We worked hard here this week. We were able to find some more cool people to teach, and this week we're going to try to visit some families where not everyone is a member. This Thursday I'm going to have to go to Porto Alegre to a meeting from 9 in the morning until 4 so should be interesting. We tried going through the area book and visiting some old investigators but it didn't work out too well, a lot of them didn't accept or didn't live in the designated address anymore.
We found Julieta again. We ran into her Saturday night and she told us we could come over. So we are going to return and see if she will want to go to church. On Thursday I gave a training about the importance of using scriptures in lessons and we did some practices and it went well. This transfer will be my last as District Leader. It will be interesting to see where I'll go after this area. I've definitely learned a lot being a leader of different districts on the mission.
Well hope all keeps going well, and I hope that I'll be able to report something interesting this next week!
