I am good. Transfers were yesterday. I stayed in Castanheira. Elder Seastrand stayed, too.   Next one in 6 weeks. 

Our baptisms fell through last week. They will be baptized on the 27 of February because that is their wedding anniversary. Cool beans. Got a haircut this morning. It's been raining like crazy for a few days. We plan on having 6 baptisms or more this transfer, 4 being men who are 25 or older, and also completing 2 families to be completely baptized. I'm stoked. I've been reading the Liahona from November in Portuguese and it's cool that I can actually understand them. More or less. It was kind of a slow week this last week because of the transfers and all, so that´s pretty much it. tchau tchau.

(Editor:  We got more pix from Elder Tenney this week.  Some are from awhile back but we wanted to share them along with the more current ones).
