This week was one of the craziest we have had. It flew by and this one will too. On Wednesday we will have the chance to hear from Elder Andersen of the 12! We are all excited for it. This week we got some new missionaries, some of my friends came in from the states and some missionaries from my old district- because it was an emergency transfer. Totally forgot about the 15th being the renewal of the Aaronic Priesthood. We were running all over the place this week and managed 7 baptisms in the zone, which was the best in the mission. We can’t believe that we are in the middle of the transfer already. On Saturday we rode in the back of an army truck to get home from an interview after running from one side of the zone to the other, luckily it’s geographically small. The water heater is still not working right and the cold months are coming; it’s alright, cold water cleans more sins. My comp and I are having a lot of fun. He is so cool. He used to be a pro. soccer player and is amazing. We are always playing soccer with rocks on our way to appointments. My comp really likes a thing called chimmarrão. It’s like an herb drink and you use special wooden cups with a funny straw, I remember that uncle NT, had one when he got back. So we have been looking for them for a while and finally found a store that sells them! Went and got them this morning! Will send a picture of us. I have been learning a lot about the atonement this week and about miracles. We heard a talk by C. Skousen that was really good that he gave to missionaries in Texas in 1980. Hope all is going well, good luck with school and work! Only 3 more weeks!!!!!!!!!!!
