Anyway this week has been golden. Yesterday we taught 2 new families and they seem interested in learning more about the gospel and are going to read The Book of Mormon.
My companion is now District Leader so that’s cool. More responsibility and pressure to work hard and set a good example. We have a transfer in 3 weeks and i hope to have one more with my beloved companion Elder J Franca. He has been in Ponte his whole mission (7 months) so it’s possible he will be transferred. But he was just called as a District Leader -you never know with transfers what’s going to happen. It’s possible I’m a trainer, who knows? I imagine I may be staying here and he may get transferred (just because of how long he has been here already). I’m so stoked Ian is heading out into the field tomorrow! I sure he is bouncing off the MTC walls with excitement! I was dying to get out of the MTC the last few weeks. I hope he gets to call you guys from the airport.
Thanks Joe for the RHCP paraphrasing and surf lesson reflection. Im going to put my best foot forward and have a good p-day and an even better week! “Plant your feet and stand strong.” I better coin that phrase. hahaha soon you and Renee will be enjoying the pacific ocean again. That’s sick you remember that I told you to plant your feet and not move them when you were learning to surf. I do remember that day. It was so fun. hhuueeaahh! I get surf withdrawals and start shaking sometimes. One day I will have to come back to Recife and show these Brazilians how we do it in so-cal.
Hey guess what? My birthday is on Mother’s day! Waahoo! It will be a great day to talk to family! Thank you for your prayers, they help a lot.
