Ôla! How y´all doin'?
I´m doing great. This last week was pretty fun. I said goodbye to a bunch of them because I got transferred out of Castanheira. I got transferred to the Center Zone (Zone Central). I´m in an area close to Castanheira and Mauazinho. It seems like I am meant to just stay in the Southeast areas of Manaus. Oh, the area is called Lagoa Verde (Green Lagoon). We live in a neighborhood called São Lazaro. It´s in a place called the Bola da Suframa which is a major industrial place. It is a bit of a richer area than the ones I have passed through so far. There is the giant 7th Day Adventist Hospital and a McDonald's in my area. By the way, it's the R$4,00 menu, not the $1 menu. The new thing here is the Cheddar McMelt or something like that for R$7. Ouch.
My new companion is Elder Tanner Woolf from Spokane, Washington. He is like 3/4 Canadian, so he´s a blast. I´m already loving this transfer. The only problem is there is no teaching pool, (again), in this area. Lots of other elders were telling me this area is a "hole" right now (in a slump) so I said the classic "Well, I´ll just fill it up with water and baptize everyone then" line. The house rocks.
Neto and Sandra are getting baptized and married (not in that order) this weekend so I am going to miss it, but hopefully I get photos from Elder Ammon if I´m lucky.
Hope you all are having an awesome week. Safe traveling and good luck with your endeavors!
