Boa Dia

Good day mom! So transfers were last week! And I got a new comp!! Hes actually helping me! finnally haha. His name is Elder Magnere. Hes from Curitiba. And hes 25 years old. He speaks pretty good english. haha. So yea still in Marituba! Love it here! So yesterday we had 2 baptisms. It was great. 
``Looks like heaven huh``
We made it possible for one family to prepare to get sealed in the temple and the husband of the wife that I baptised yesterday will get baptised next week. I love doing baptisms. So Yesterday, we went to a members house to eat lunch and after lunch shes like Can yall give my mom a blessing shes really sick. So we went into her moms room and she looked awful. And its sooo hot here, that
when your sick its sooo miserable. So I have no idea how to give a blessing in portuguese.. And this is the most powerful spiritual experiance I have ever had in my life. I put my hands on her head, and didnt say anything for like a minute. And then, I just new exactly what to say. It was way cool. Ill never forget it. But im getting use to everything here. Im not getting homesick as often or feeling
miserable anymore. Im feeling great! Today is my 5 month mark! next month I get to burn a tie!! Im getting way to excited for that
``Movin the ole books in style``

AHHHH SNAP!! So the other day!!! Ohhhhh the other day haha. We get home and were exhausted and I walk in the house and turn on the light, and walk to my desk, and then I throw my pen on my desk and BOOM! A jungle wanderer ran off my desk and onto the wall! I never screamed soo loud in my life.. these are the fastest spiders here. They are brown with suuuuper long legs. and they have a glowing eye. So it was just chillin on the wall for like 2 minutes and we were just staring at it. and I got my camera and gave it to my comp and I was like dude, Im going to get this thing out of here, if I die, give this video to my parents. So we didnt have a flame thrower so I had to use my broom. And I batted that thing out the door and it ran down the sidewalk! AHHH!! I hate those things!! another story. We were in benevides and waiting for a bus back to marituba, (I did tell yall I cover 3 cities right?) And I was like dude, I need to use to bathroom. And hes like just go over there off the road. So Its pitch black, and im afraid of everything in the world out here and I walk like 5 feet off the road, and SLASH! I fell in a hole full of water!! Ohh my comp couldnt stop laughing.. hahaha. My whole leg was soaked.. Sooo much stuff happens out here that I just want to tell you, But Just dont have enough time. Ill just say, Im having the time of my life. I really do feel like a new person. And having this tag on me just makes it a hundered times better. We get soo much respect out here. When people see us for if we ask to come in there home they dont hesitate to give us everything we need. They have such a different view on life than the people in the US. 
``Another day,
another amazing breakfast``
I would love to move back here after the mish. But its just to different of a lifestyle. My portuguese is getting even better. I can understand people, and talk with them. Just need to expand my vocab more. Hows El Paso? I totally forgot about Thanksgiving... Hows all the fam? Well got to send you some pics! Love you all!
