Letter from October 3rd, 2011

This week was pretty good. With Conference and all it took a lot of our time to work and everything, but we still had a baptism which was cool. We watched Conference and heard the words of the prophets and then had a baptism - doesn't get much more spiritual than that. Conference was way awesome, but a little different than normal. It was a little strange not to hear their real voices.  I'm used to being able to tell who is talking just by their voice, but here they just translate it live, so it's Brazilians talking. It was funny because before every talk there was a couple of seconds that you can hear them talking in English and then they start to translate it into Portuguese. So, I was trying to translate that little part into Portuguese before the translators said it.  It was pretty funny.

Things are going prettty good here. I didn't even realize how big my area is until this week. I knew it was big, but I had no idea that it was THAT BIG.   It's big enough to have at least 8 more missionaries here, but noooooo.  It's just us 2,  but we are making it happen.   If everything works out, we should be having a baptism this week as well.  

The only bad thing is that it's starting to get REALLY hot here, which is starting to suck. Everyone is always asking me if I use sunscreen, because my face is so red (haha). They don't know that's how I always look.  I hope everyone has a great week!
