Olá minha amada Família,

Yes, Elder Eggers called me to inform me about the bank info. I haven't made the transfer yet because I wanted to get the information that you sent him. More than likely I'll be doing it this week.

About this new year. Now I can say that I will go in this one! Eu vou nesse ano!

One more week until transfer day, and unfortunately one more week without any baptisms.  Henrique, Christiani, and Richard, didn't go to church this passed weekend meaning they will have to wait a little bit longer to be baptized. Good news, Christiani gave birth to Hector on December 30th, or 31st. For this reason they didn't go to church.

A missionary survey took a majority of my time, and I've already gone over the limit... Oh well. I'll continue writing.

I'm becoming a little bit anxious knowing that the next transfer is the second to last transfer. I'll really need to turn up the gas to not relax or get distracted. Next transfer I and my group will be in a meeting called "Meeting of the dead"

I think that when I return home I'll install that aftermarket radio in my car again, so I can play music from my phone. I love my car in all, but I want to buy a car with a manual transmission, like a Chevrolet Cobalt or Cruze, to learn and to drive something more complicated yet simplified. But, who says I have to sell my car! I'll just wait until its time to change rides to do this switch.

The tumble weed game sounds so much fun as well!

Elder Burt just commented on the spelling of Wendi's name. I think he thought it was strange to see Wendi spelled with an "i".

I caught up in my journal, then numbered the pages. I have 62 pages remaining in my journal. I'll write as normal then buy a smaller journal, if I run out of space. I was thinking that I will digitized my journal by typing it in the computer.

I’ll be sending photos of New Year’s next week Sunday.


Eu Te Amo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm being transferred! I'm going to the Ala Cotia 1 (Cotia 1st Ward). You can bet that this will be the last time packing my bags before April 3rd. The new ward building is the Stake Center of Cotia. Rua Doutor Ladislau Retti 71, Pq. Alexandre Cotia, São Paulo 06714-150 Brazil. 

I'm not sad at all, actually I'm really happy, for a number of reasons. My ticket has arrived, there is no more confusion about the scripture covers, And I'll be leaving the city, and going to the ward that frequents the same chapel as Geraldine. I mean the new area isn't 100% countryside but I believe it’s a little bit more country than neighborhoods. My new companion will be Elder Brown from the States. Elder Ramos will be training a new missionary.

I've moved my seat on the way home to window seats, here are the seat numbers. DALl104 (GRU-ATL) 15J, DAL987 (ATL-MSP) 23A, SKW4605 (MSP-AZO) 2A.

The missionary survey is a survey to evaluate the things were doing, but it is anonymous. It is for every missionary that is in the field.

The "meeting of the dead" is a meeting for the missionaries who have entered into the last 12 weeks of their mission. The purpose; to help them not slack off before they're on the plane.

I learned about President Thomas S. Monson on Wednesday, during District Meeting. President had appeared at another district's meeting in the same chapel, and afterward showed us a painting of President Monson next to his wife with Jesus Christ. At first I didn't understand, so 30 seconds later I needed to confirm with President Thomas what I was thinking.

If you’re going to send another package I do accept more body wash, and shampoo. If you haven't sent some already. I'm not running low yet, but I might need some more for the last transfer.

I Love You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
