I don't have much time at all right now, but I am uploading pics right now, so that will be good.
How are all of you? How is school? I hope you are all having fun, and learning to play your instruments too for all of you kids who are up to that.
Things here are good. We may have found somebody to baptize! His name is Vitor Jesus, and he has been talking with missionaries on and off for something like 15 years. Elder Jacobson and I had been teaching him for a while, but then he left to São Miguel and we lost contact. I think something finally clicked with him, because he called us up the other day saying he finally new that our church is true. He wants to be baptized. He has a smoking problem, but he has already stopped drinking recently, and has cut down to only 10 cigarettes a day. Pray for him, and for us, because he could really use the blessings of the gospel in his life.
Quick funny story for all of you. Early this morning I woke up in the middle of the night. I didn't know why. Sometimes it is hard to sleep at night with some of the stress of the missionary life. Anyways, so I am laying in my bed, wide awake, trying to go back to sleep, when all the sudden, I hear a voice come from the bed of Elder Tucci. He asked me, 'I'm going to take a shower, do you mind?' I had no idea what he was talking about, and thought maybe it was later than I thought. But I was still pretty sure it was early, so I was like, 'What?' After a second he replied, 'Tão bom' which basically means, OK. At that point I figured he probably wasn't awake, so I asked, 'Elder, what time is it?' He reached up behind his head, still asleep really, and grabbed his watch. He turned on the watch light and answered '4:15'. I think after that he finally really woke up, and I started laughing pretty good. We kind of had a weird conversation and then went back to sleep. It was weird. When I first woke up in the morning I wasn't sure it had actually happened.
Anyways, I need to get going. But I love you all, and hope you all have a great week. Have fun at Bud's house, it sounds like it will be a great weekend!
Love you all!
Sorry it is early again =( because my companion is from Australia they are ahead of time quite a bit, so he likes to do email around this time =/ But how are you!? I'm great. The weather here is taking a turn too...
Man, Shane didn't email me again this week. How is he doing? He sounds busy but man it also sounds like he is having a lot of fun. He says there isn't anything happening in the world of girls but that's just baloney... that's what class time is for ;P
We will watch conference in our chapel. We are ahead of course so we will watch 1 session on Saturday I think, and then the other 5 (priesthood included) on Sunday. It will be a good rest for my legs. How is little Jet doing? Any good stories? Will he start school after I get home, or have 1 more year? I hope one more year.
Well, I have to go. I love you. Kiss and hug the kids for me.
