Dear People Who Gave Me Life,
Hi Mom! Hi Dad! :p
|(Elder 10-e: 26 December 2009)|
Uneventful week. Let's start from the beginning. Last P-Day, I forgot to tell you about my bus ride home from soccer. There was some guy from a different church who got up in the front and started preaching. He then went around telling us all how we could be saved. Then he took out some sort of perfume/oil (it was blue, I remember that, and it smelt funny) and wiped it on our hands, then he went and brushed everyone's hair with his hand saying "be blessed, be blessed."
A little awkward.
Then people gave him money.

Elder Gannon & Elder Tenney on the Amazon - 23 Dec 2009
(One week before Elder Gannon completed his mission & returned home)
Anywho, we had an FHE with some people. It was fun. Then we had another. Fun, also. Then we had another. Can you see the pattern? They are fun to have, though. Ana Paula and Joseneire are getting married on Friday next week, and Ana Paula is getting baptized right after. We planned the wedding last night with some ward members.

(Elder Tenney's First Baptism) - 28 November 2009
We have a golden investigator. Her name is Elcy, she is about 35 with a little 6-7 year old son. We have been teaching her and she is getting baptized on the 22nd... This Friday! Eu estou animado!! She is super accepting of the messages, has lots of good questions, and an open heart. It's super awesome.
Also, a man and his wife are set to be baptized on the 29th also after the wedding. Names: Fabio & Suelem. I hope Elder Gannon reads this. . .
Also, we may baptize Joseneire. He may need a little more time, but he is thinking seriously about it.
I love those moments when you can just feel the Spirit vibrating all around the room. É bem legal.

Well, that's the missionary work. Now, for elder 10e.

Yesterday I found a huge spider the size of my open hand in our house. I took some bug spray and sprayed it and it just started twitching like crazy. Then one of its legs fell off and it just curled up and fell from the ceiling to the floor. NinjaKitteh Strikes Again!

One of the lines for our water is broken I think, because we have no water pressure in our shower. Also, every time we flush the toilet bad smells come from the kitchen sink. What on earth is going on?
We are allowed to listen to motab- type stuff from 6:30 to 8 in the morning, and 9 to 10:30 at night. On pday we can also listen to disney-type stuff and soundtracks from movies and classical and all that stuff as long as it's not bad. I don't have any way to listen to music on cds here. If anything, take my i-pod and load as much music as possible and send, but I don't really need it...
But yes, we are allowed to listen to music.
