That is really neat that Bryce got his mission call! England is just perfect for him.
I think it is funny that the Harpers moved back into our ward. Lol, every one is moving back it seems like.
The Ogdens house is almost done!! That is crazy. Time flys fast here.
Sounds like Remmington had a really fun birthday party! I celebrated his birthday by making a wendys frosty. We buy milk here in boxes so we froze one and then blended it up and put a lot of chocolate milk powder in it. It was yummy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KID!
So, I like to listen to music on my speaker, but my ipod wont play on the cord that I have, so we listen to a usb drive that I bought. It just has some songs from conference and also conference talks, but my companion doesnt like to listen to them at night because she cant spéak in portuguese the next day. So today I downloaded some in portuguese, kreyol, tongan, and Japanese. I am excited to listen to them. :)
This last week we were looking for an address of an old recent convert that we found in our Area book. When we finally found the apartment we were greeted by a bunch of friendly Haitians. They were really nice as always, and just learning how to speak portuguese. One of them spoke English, so we talked with him and the others listened. We were using French book of Mormons to hold up my bed so I told him that I would bring more for them to read this next week. They really are my favorite people to listen too, and to talk to. I was so happy that I almost sang head shoulders knees and toes for them in Kreyol because at the time that was the only Kreyol I remembered. lol. It was really funny.
Sister Larson knows portuguese. She is just a little bit of a perfectionist and wont talk if she knows it is not right. She will talk to people in our lessons willingly, but she wont ever talk on the phone. Which is fine I like talking on the phone, but she is always telling me I have to do this and that and when I ask her to try she wont... But all in all we get along well!
I have noticed that I tend to just go more with the flow and will work with others well, but the missionaries that dont come from good families tend to boss everyone around. It is amazing the influence parents have on the ways that we work with others. Thank you mom and dad for being such good examples! I will love you forever for the things you have taught me!
The ward is great, their are a lot of great families here. We are just looking for new ways to include them in the work, and also work better with the bishop and his desires for our ward. We had lunch with him on Saturday and he gave us a whole new viewpoint on the life of a bishop here in Brazil. It was very helpful. :)
We also had zone conference on Friday. It was really good and really fun! We all were at the Stake Center waiting and then the electricity went out. They were going to be working on the lines next to the chapel all day. So all of the missionaries in Porto Velho and Ji Parana went to catch a bus to the other chapel near by. It was crazy. Conference was good and I got to recieve a lot of letters! I was very happy to recieve them.
My companion has the weirdest laugh ever, and at all of the ward activities it is the goal of the youth to make her laugh. It is the best :) She gets so annoyed, but its so funny. Especially when someone has not heard her laugh before. It is the loudest thing ever and every one turns around and just stares at her. lol. A yound woman in our ward got it on it on camera.
Anyways, better go and email Presidente Klein!
Vos-ama! :) :)
I am sending a letter this week, their is something for mom, dad, and each of the two boys.
