WEEK 14! November 7, 2011

hello family!!!!!
another week has come and gone! it is crazy how fast things are going here! this week was difficult with teaching, we had a hard time with "time" during the lessons. people are very busy... this week we found lots of families to teach! it is pretty great! i am slowly getting better at speaking with people and teaching! it is really neat teaching, because i still have a really hard time speaking and such but when we go to teach i have a clear head and am able to explicar pretty clearly and it appears that they enderstand so that is a great blessing! there are so many tiny miracles that happen every day that you just cant describe! i think dad would understand, but for example, last week i think thursday, all of or appointments fell through! and no one had time for us to share a message, so we spent almost 3 1/2 hours knocking doors, at 7ish we went to a house that said we could come back that day and we were able to teach their family! and there are 7 people in their family! it was so neat! it is amazing how a day can be going so bad and then 1 little thing will happen and it is like the whole day was great! here when we find someone that is really excited to learn about the gospel we call them "eleito" and it is so neat to be able to teach!
grandma sent me an email and said i would have difficulties with english when i return, i~m already having problems!!!!! hehe! i think there are a few words in portuguese here and others i had to spend some time thinking wat the word was in english! crazy!
this week we get to go to the temple! on the 9th! i am pretty excited! and don~t worry mom i will take a picture for you, i can now! i love the temple! Trevor, Dallin, Adam, Macie, & Daniel, PREPARE FOR THE TEMPLE IT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
mom and dad, thank you for the scriptures you give each week! i study them and i even use some of them in lessons! thank you so much!!!! right now i am finishing up the book of mormon in english and i am in 1ne 18 in portuguese, it is hard in portuguese and slow moving buti understand for the most part! it is really helping me! the book of mormon is so amazing! how many times did you read through the book of mormon on your mission dad?
