I have been called to serve the Lord in the Joao Pessoa, Brazil Mission. Joao Pessoa is in the NE region of Brazil and is the capital city of the state of Paraíba,
it was founded in 1585. It is also known as "the city where the sun rises first". The nearest Temple is 75 miles away in Recife.
Please follow me as I embark on the Lord's work love, serve and share His Gospel.

We worked and worked and worked. I ate a lot and gained a
few pounds. But on the plus side, my pants still fit!! And, we found an amazing family! 4 people actually. Mom, Dad
and two sons. The mom and dad didn’t go to church due to work, but the boys
went and they loved it. We told them to get the parents excited for next week. They
all said they would go next week. Maybe if they all go, this family will be my
lasts baptisms on the mission. That would be nice to baptize a whole family
right at the end. The boys are twelve years old.
I am sorry I am so late emailing today, I couldn’t get
on. The stupid internet here has always been horrible. But the LAN house - like
crashed!! I really have nothing else to
say actually. That’s really all that happened. People had Christmas dinners,
but since nobody eats until midnight, we didn’t eat anywhere! But we did happen
to find a pizza place open, so we ate pizza with nice cold Coca-Cola! Merry
I am getting super trunky; I am just missing and
remembering things from back home. I am trying to stay focused, but I didn’t know how hard
it would be near the end. I would like it that everyone goes to the airport, especially
the ones that wouldn’t be able to come over on the 18th for the Open
House and because our house is kind of almost in Canada!
Howard comes back the week after me from Porte Allegro, I
know that Ammon will be over a lot or I will be there a lot and Emily emailed
me as well - She is having a good time, but obviously a little frustrated that
she doesn’t have her visa to Fortaleza yet!
Missionaries who were leaving to go home used to be able
to go to the Temple the night before they left, but we stopped going to the
temple when the new Mission President came. Usually the ones leaving from their
mission would go as there last day, but we don’t do that anymore. Kind of sad,
but it’s like whatever!!
With our Mission President, we will have lunch with him, and then
we will leave to visit something’s, and then we have our interview and then that’s
it. Nothing more. Then the next day we get all of our stuff and go to the
airport. I am flying out of Atlanta through Delta at like 9 in the morning or
something like that back to Seattle.
I would love to visit Brazil again. But, no I would not
extend my mission even if I could. I would only stay in Brazil if I could
without being as a missionary. I love
the people here and I always want to visit them, the only thing is that I could
not live here forever. It’s the same apartment as before, when I had this area
in Campina Grande, in total there are four of us and it is still the red and
What is planned back home for New Year? On New Year’s in
our mission, we literally can do nothing! Nothing is planned and nobody even
invites the missionaries to anything. We have no plans for New Year because we
have to be inside by 9:30 p.m. I would leave and go to a member’s house and eat
the food and see other people, but it’s at midnight and not everyone in the
house wants to go!!
I still have money and yes I was able to get the rest of
the money out of the Credit Union finally!
Please just bring my coat to the airport, but in all
honesty I think I will be fine when I get home. It will be like continually
taking a cold shower when I arrive. I already take cold showers, so I think I
will get used to the cold again – it won’t take long – lol!
I have to go now. I love you a lot and I will talk to you next week. Hopefully it
will at the expected time next week around 5:30am your time!
Oh, and I already assumed I would speak on the 19th. Who
else will be speaking with me?
