038/066 100222 What, a Carnival?

Picture: Carnival - Rio de Janerrio
I just want to tell everyone how Carnival was. It was incredibly nothing. It felt like normal. I was so sad!

Busy me. I hope the best for you all!

037/067 100215 Happy Birthday Hannah

Happy Birthday to Hannah! I hope all is well for her on this special day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

So you'll probably want an explanation of why you have emails early (Friday 12th instead of next Monday 15th). Because of Carnaval, we are using the Internet today. There will be a load of crazieness, and as such we won't be able to use the Internet until much later this next week, so President told us to write now.

President Bezerra said, "The city will become a literal Babylon in those 4 days of carnival, then it returns to the wonderful city we love."

Things are good here. There was a baptism this Sunday (Feb 14) of a girl named Vitoria.

Note: Hannah is Nathan's niece and turned one year old on February 12. When Nathan turned in his missionary paperwork, he identified his available date to be just after Hannah's due date. Then, surprise, surprise, she came five weeks early, one day after Nathan opened his missionary call letter.

My week was good. There was a baptism, that lady that loves my blue eyes, Vera. That was good. I am learning a lot here. It is wonderful. Look at Mosiah 23:21-22. Its a good one.

035/069 100201 I Love My Nation!

Picture: Zone Conferance 2
So this week we talked to a lady talking about how here in Brazil it is so hard for someone to change social rank. How people will do everything, they will study, they will do well in school, and will work hard, and still not be able to fully progress in society. When she was talking about this I became so much more grateful for my wonderful USA. It is truly wonderful that I feel like when I get back I am not going to be restricted to those people I know in order to progress in society. I will be able to choose the path I want, and if I work hard I'll be able to take that path, even if I don't know someone with loads of money that would sponsor me. It is a wonderful thing.

I love my nation!

That's all for this week!
