SO.. Yesterday we had zone conference! It was a very building spiritual experience! President Parrella and Sister Parrella are so amazing! We also heard a talk from a stake president that was so funny! He told stories about his mission! I can't wait to get back and tell all of you all my stories from my mission, the good times, the hard times, the ups and downs, and the many miracles that happened on my mission, I am enjoying every day at a time and I am so focused on saving many souls! Sabará is so amazing and I know without doubt that the Lord has his hand in all things, I'm here for a purpose and I am going to give all I have to find that purpose!

So 2 days ago we were on the street knocking doors and there was a lady that passed by, that was on drugs, she was really gross, she asked my companion if he would give her love, and him not speaking well and not understanding, said he loved all of Gods children, hah then she tried to attack him, saying all sorts of gross things, and I stood in front of her and told here to leave, then she tried to attack me, then a man yelled from his doorway to hurry and enter his house, we ran and she followed, as I was entering she gave my butt a squeeze and I hurried in and my companion hurried in behind me haha well, the guy that let us in now has a date to be baptized haha Welcome to my life in Brazil!
love you all have a great week!

SABARÀ Wednesday, February 9, 2011

So yes I was transferred! I am in Sabará and I'm with Elder Ty Hilton, he is from Salt Lake City, I opened this area so there is nothing here, but there will be soon! My companion only has a couple weeks on the mission so he doesn't speak anything. So many people cried last night when I left, and I almost did, but I didn't because I'm a man haha jk, I didn't hardly sleep last night because I was a little nervous, but I'm here now and it is so beautiful here with so much green and tons of hills, its a historic city here with tons of Catholics! I have to go now, because we have a couple of appointments, love you all tons!

Alright so this week has been good! Time is flying, I cannot believe that this transfer is over almost, this next week I can get a call from president! I love it here in Veneza, it will be hard if I get transferred, Ii love everyone and there are a lot that love me! There was a couple days that we were without water in the city, there were some hard times, but everyone helps everyone out, its horrible to lose water in this kind of heat, wow I can't imagine how it would be if they had a disaster here, no one is ready for anything, we are starting to push the six month supply of food here, help the members start getting well prepared! The Lord is at the doorstep and these next 10 years are going to get crazy! No one knows when he will come but lets be ready! Everything spiritually, and everything physically!

Love you all! I am going to get a bunch of letters sent off today! love you all have a great week!
