Wow so i don´t know where to start. I think i´ll just
start with the good the releif that I received to know that i´ve got a
job! That is nice. The bad part. My new companion. He got here and
just wasn´t showing desire. He doesn´t talk to the members almost at
all or to anyone for the matter. Turns out he had problems with his
knee and was in rehab for the last 2 months and President gave him the
choice try and stay or go home. He is still on the doubt about it. I
lost my cool a little and said some stuff I shouldn´t have. I don´t
know if I´ve got it in me to help another missionary out....it seems
like thats all I´ve gotten on the mission. But i´m giong to try
harder. I want to end the mission well...i was just hoping to stay with
my other comp because he wanted to stay and had desire. I guess we
don´t always get what we want. It helps us grow. Thats all the mission
is...growth. I guess I needed more that other people.
But I do agree with what you said about leave the past in the past with
my old comp. We are actually on good terms. He talked really well
about our work together. He was like we baptised everyone that you and I
found together. His comp was a huge slacker. I´m happy that they
baptised the group the we left there, I just wish that I could have seen
it happen as well.
Today we played soccer. It was fun....i played a lot better today so
that was a plus. Its always the worst when you suck it up. I´m super
sore though. I´m so out of shape. I´m trying to do what I can to get
kind of back into it. Jump roping and such. Its better than nothing.
Happy Birthday Dad! You´re only as old as you feel. When I show my
pictures to people they are like your parents are so young! So that
should make you feel good. Especially since everyone here has 3 kids by
the age of 17. So you are really young.
It has been super cold here these last few nights. I´m almost dying. I
have to sleep with socks on at night! I´ve never done that in my life.
so yesterday of all days...we help a member moves some stuff. Well
because we are in Brasil no one has a car so we walked stuff from one
house to another. It was horrible. It sucks to move in the first place
and worse when you walk a half a mile to the other house with a couch
or stuff. Oh well...its the last time I do anything like that.
Well I love and miss you all. But these last few weeks should go by pretty fast.
