Week 46

why are there panguins in richfield?
A teacher brought these to school and put them outside they are like real stuffed penguins it was hilarious and they look so real it is scary.  I told Taylor its colder here than where they live. haha
hey we had a good week. my neck is feeling better. i need those p90x cuz it makes you have to do the work. when i exercize without a video i do a little then lay on the floor haha 630 is still too early for me haha. i know that i will stay here there is a lot of work to do here. i think that i will get a new companion though. yeah this transfer was hard because of christmas and new years then we were sick. this was the first week where we were able to work all week long. actually from our count i will be home in less than a year. when we did the count i could actually be home by christmas! it all depends though. but usually you loose 2 weeks from 2 years so that would be in january when i come home, i dont know the date exactly though. when do you need to buy your tickets? i think that i will be home before jan 13 even without going home early. i read the book of mormon in portuguese just like it was englich now. there are some words that i dont know that i have to look up but hey there are words in english that i dont understand in the bom haha. i have talked to both of them. i will send you her email.
so this week i did a split with jonas, the guy who served in the states, we found this lady named Nivea. she is so awesome. she told us that she was having problems in her family and that she was needing our message that day. it is so cool when you find the people who are waiting for you. this area is kinda hard to find people. most of our area, and the closest part to the church, is downtown. so its really hard to teach people there. then where there are lots of houses its really far away and they dont want to go to church haha. the good part is jonas really likes me so he has been helping us a lot. we have been doing a lot of splits. this week we have interviews with president so i will get letters and packages!
how are things going there? what is new? when is grandpa going to sell me his truck? i dont remember if i told you but i got an email from the ustrc and the wrangler ropings like the end of the year and i made the us open finals and the top 20 in the wrangler. i thought it was cool because i was only there for two months haha. i love you guys have a good week.

Week 45

hahah yeah it is crazy to think that i will probabaly not see one day of 2013 in the states. yeah we all started a goal to not drink coke at home.... i ts 930 and i have all ready bought one hahaha., but seriously i am going to stop... or at least slow down on the pop. you said you are sending stuff for the house? what kind of stuff. but yeah here you dont flush tp here haha it like breaks the pipes or something haha. i had some good luck with companions because i had american companions until i could already talk portuguese, so if brazilians wanted to talk about me i understood them. I have had mostly cool companions though. that was probably so cool for ryder to have baby calves. he will love it. we never had calves but i was at quinns so much that i got to have that experience so that is way cool that kycen and ryder will too. The part that sucks is that they were born in the toughest part of the year. heck they could be too big for kycen befor the snow leaves haha, but maybe they will be so tame that it wont matter. yeah you guys might have a lot of work cut out for you if you hae a bunch of calves in the winter with first time moms..... good luck haha. you could email quinn and ask for some advice haha. we do serice projects on whatever day that we can do it. like this week we are helping a family move houses on thursday. so this week was pretty lame. i was a sick one day and Elder ferreira was sick like three other days. we barely left the house this last week. it really sucked just sittin home all day. dont worry i wasnt that sick i just had a bug i think. Did you get all the way better yet? so i cant believe how fast time is passing by. i only have two more weeks in this transfer. its so crazy it seems like i just got here. this week we made a lot of good goals some high ones. we are going to try to make up for the week we lost last week. so i have a question for you. these last couple weeks when i try to do push ups or pull ups after a little when it gets harder to do them and i have to excert myslef i get this sharp pain in the back of my neck. it is a pain like i pinched a nerve or something. it gives me a throubbing head ach too. i have stopped doing these exercises this week to try to give it a break and see. what do you think ? do you think that its just a pinched nerve? i love you guys i hope you have a great week. 

week 44

haha i am so glad that you got my package. the jersy with the hart isnt a jersy it was a shirt that our zone made haha. the hats are made out of leather because that is what the cowboys wear here. they chase bulls through really thick country so they wear leather everything. they even put leather on there horses. the other jerseys i sent because i was running out of room in my bags. so last night i heard some bad news. Elder T was sent home. I talked to madsen today, and he said that he just didn't change. Madsen said that he whent home with honors though so at least that is good.  the rest of the week was good. Me and Elder Marcolino made bbq saturday night. it was so good. it was a little hard to work this week because here on holidays everything shuts down. Like all the places to use the computers are shut down today. i lucked out and a member had a computer so i could send this to you today. i will email some more tomorrow because i only have a little time today.we live close to the church here it is like two roads away. and yeah we have a laundry machine . all the missionary houses have clothes washers. the new years here was pretty docile. they had some fireworks but not a lot. they weren´t as big as they are in the states either. we climbed up on top of our house and watched them. time is going by so fast. i cant belive that its 2013. like i was trying to remember what i did last new years and i kept thinking of the new years from two years ago thinking that it was last year haha. you will have to send me some pictures from christmas. i hope that you guys get feeling better. we have been a little sick here. not bad sometimes we just get headaches. i think it is from the sun. one of my new year goals is to drink less coke. i know that it would be an unreal goal to say i was going to stop compleatly so i am just going to slow down haha. the next package i will send you guys so dvds and cds from here. some that have the videos of there vacajada ( mexican rodeos haha) love you guys i will write you more tomorrow.

we made hot dogs and just meat haha you never really know what part of the bull the meat comes from you just cook it real well and bless it before you eat it hahaha. what ever part it came from it was crazy good. haha. our neighbor is the missionary mom here and she had a bbq thing. it is just a box on a stand with a place to put a stove thing then you put coals in the bottom . i will take a picture and send it to you guys next time. yeah i hope that he got your package for him too. i didnt even think to ask madsen if he did or not. yeah i really did learn a lot at the double dollar. mostly about how to handle myself. it amazes me how many people here dont know what it is like in the real world. they have lived there entire lives in a sheltered box, haha i know i made a lot of bad decisions but i am glad i did sometimes because they helped me grow. i love you mom i hope that you get feeling better.

hey can you send some stuff from home to elder marolino he will pay me for it . he wants a real rubix cube, maple, skip-bo, and some american candy. if you can i will tell him how much it is and he will give me the cash. thanks love you. (The Brazilians want American too)
