***Good Luck with his spelling, I'm hoping it's because he has learned a different language!***

hello there my wonderful family how are things going there. well i know just about every week you guys get mad about me not sending pictures so i think i have to right to get mad at you guys as well hahah jk jk but seriously what great news i have another niece however NO PICTURE!!!! there is a problem here hahah jk jk. but reallly ill be looking forward to next monday to see a great picture of my new niece.
Anyways things here are going great! another great week for us here in the mountains, things are well going and well how can i put this i just hope things arent slowin down again lol but i dont think so we are still workin hard and having tons of fun with the work as well. =) this week actually wasnt too bad with the end of carnival we actually stepped up our game the last couple of days and got to teach a lot more people so that is the good news =). My companion is well great he loves to work and we push each other along the way. he is all about work so that helps a ton as well. However one thing that i will not miss is sundays. sundays are the worst day i´ve decided, one there are so many people home but they dont want to talk 1. either they are drunk or 2. well you know the carls jr. commercial where they say ``burger fries and a drink dont bother me im eating`` yeah well here its more like ``sunday, television, and soccer, dont bother me im watching soccer``. yupp especially this time of the year all the teams in rio are playing to see who is atually the best team here. so every sunday there is at least 2 games, que chato! and of course i will not miss going to pick peoiple up from church i mean every day of the week for sure im going im way excited lets go to church and then sunday comes.....nothing.....nothing....and more nothing. i think its funny cause yesterday we went to go pick up a family and knocked on the door a couple times and what happens the youngest kid comes out who is like 3 yrrs old and says my mom left. oh yeah kid who are you here with mom already left hahah is your brother here no....oh so you´re hrere a lone ....ummm yeah hahah oh what lies haha. for sure one thing i will not miss.
So this area is still great i love this place, this week has gotten pretty cold though its been raining a lot as well, just about fall and winter time here in brasil though. about 3 more weeks and it will be getting cold here in the mountains. The people here are way awesome so nice and everyone talks to us as well, unless they are from the church ``assembalia de deus``...then they call us false prophets and sing please god burn them hahah....yupp thats right we had that happen to us we walked out of a house and went one direction this guy starts yelling false prophets and yells please god burn them hahah and than starts singing some other stuff....hahah oh what you see in but really that is the only bad thing that hapened everyone is really friendly. as for the investigators welll we had a pretty good turn out at chruch a little lolo...but we have gootten some pretty good investigators to work with. We are teaching some incomplete families, so thats who we really are teaching some of the members are giving us some family to teach and they are bringing others to church so who knows what will happen these next couple of weeks in the transfer shoulld be good. well i better get running i love you guys and miss you também. =)
com grande amor
