Well here we are about the 6 month mark. All is well and ive learned a ton already. Im not quite fluent but i understand quite a bit. I love it here and i love doing missionary work.
This week was pretty cool. We didnt really have the best numbers but i was happy. Ill tell you a little why. Our area has about a 15 Km radius and has 6 regions in it. Oh.. and we dont have a map.... So getting addresses are a little difficult. Some days we walk up to 13 Km. Some days though.. we get lucky and people will give us a ride. Some times the bus passes and he opens up the back doors so we can sneak on and not have to pay. only when there are few people on the bus. haha.
We have 2 baptisms coming up! one Is Benedita who is a senhora and the other is Adrian who is 8. They are both really excited and i cant wait to help them progress more!
We had a service project this week. It was out in the middle of the forest. We cut grass, cleaned it up. trimmed a tree.. burned a bee hive, harvested mandioca and planted new ones again, oh and backflips :) we also ate sandwiches so it was a success :)
That was basically our week. ill try to send pics here in a little.
Tchau! Boa Semana para vocês!!!

that he was being represented!

evil spirits of the venue that shall not be named.
He LOVED it!!!!
