Week #61: 14 Months! Week 6 of Transfer 9

Hello, Hello, Hello!

So, this last week was pretty good. We have been teaching Janderson´s brother, Jonathas, who was marked to be baptized last Sunday. There was a small speed bump in the road, but this next Sunday he is all up and ready to go. Jonathas has an extremely large testimony of the Gospel. He even bore it to us the other day. Basically we are just making small visits this week to keep him pumped up and excited.

We had made a contact with a man in the road the other week. We marked to go back, but I got a little lost. We decided to go to a house on the street we were at to ask directions. Turns out, that house had an inactive family in it. How are they now? Active. It was a miracle. Then the man we were looking for ended up yelling at us to come over in the road and we kept teaching him. He had started reading the Book of Mormon and was extremely interested.

Yesterday, I made 14 months in the field.... Seriously, it is going by extremely fast. Too fast for my liking.

Today we went to INPA. It is like a zoo/science study place. They do studies of the Amazon Forest. It wasn´t all that exciting, except that the animals are allowed to roam free through the zoo. Except the crocodiles. The monkeys went swinging around over our heads at one part. I got a pic! So yeah, it was cool. There was the world´s largest leaf there from the Amazon. It was bigger than me!

Transfers are coming up next week. Who knows where I am going to be this next Tuesday! (Day of Transfers) More areas are closing because there are about 10 missionaries leaving and only 2 coming in. It's a rough life.

Well, that´s about it. Love you all tons! Happy Thanksgiving next week! Happy Birthday, Blake! Thanks for the amazing email Grandma Tenney! Love you!

So happy the work is progressing in his area. We love Elder Tenney and trust the Lord will pour out blessings on Brazil despite the visa issues that persist.
