Week 18 - First Baptism

Tudo Bem,

This week was packed!  I got my new companion Elder Roque and we went to work. Elder Roque is a super great teacher so I definitely got lucky. I have definitely used more Portuguese this week than any other week on the mission!

Week 17 - Aniversario‏

Hello Gente,

This week was super fun!  On Wednesday I got to go to the temple in Recife.  It is so pretty and has all these palm trees and a fountain and grass. That was definitely a highlight of my week. We traveled down there and then got Burger King afterwards.

Week 16 - Pernambuco


So I dont have a ton of time to write because we are traveling to the temple today.  It will be awesome.  I haven’t been to a temple since the MTC.  We will travel to downtown Recife and probably go to McDonald’s afterwards.

Week 15 - May the Fourth Be With You‏

So my topic line actually has significance because there is a guy in one of our District wards on a mission whose name is: “Elder Lucas Skywalker Bezzerra dos carvalhos.” Haha - like who names their kid Lucas Skywalker?!?  That is serious dedication to a movie - Only in Brazil, but maybe not.
