Life is good and I am happy. Tired and exhausted but happy! I am healthy and the ward is helping a ton! 
 I know its crazy to think that in a few weeks I will have 6 months in my mission! 
 Our mission is getting divided so maybe I will be serving in a new mission and a new area as a trainer for all the new missionaries entering the field
This Sunday we had lunch with our ward mission leader, he is awesome and a return missionary and so is his wife. SO of course everyone shared crazy mission stories about how the beat up robbers and such. After a while we got into scary ghost stories and I was totally freaking out all day hahahaha
This week we had a ton of service projects with the sister in our ward that coordinates are lunches! She is doing a lot of construction in her house so she called us for help! The first thing she had us do was move a couples things and remove nails and such from the walls. After that she said that she wanted to make a window! So i was totally down with that! She handed me a pick axe and I went to town on that wall and made a window! She was like ELDER GET ANGRY. So jokingly I was Screaming like crazy AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH And everyone was cracking up like funny!
Today we went to Sao Pedro which is a town in our area which is kin of far away and so we don't have many investigators there. So we went and talked to a ton of inactive. WE talked to one family which use to be so firm in the gospel then they started working on Sunday. It was really sad. We talked about the blessings they could receive and that their family could become more united and have more peace and happiness cause their family was having some rough times. It was really sad, and we bore our testimonies and we were all crying so much because the spirit was so strong. We invited them to church this week but they couldn' next week maybe. It was so sad... but we are going to visit them more and help the return to the church! Which I am excited about because they have an amazing family and they have a son who is  9 years old who hasn't been baptized yet! Love them.
The 23rd WE had another service project with Irma Marta! IT was so fun I got to work with my hands, mix cement and just work; MY companion was a little hesitant with getting dirty but he got into the work!!! He is awesome! SO I helped make a ton of cement and helped place tiles on the wall. SO it was a fun service project and their house looks awesome now :)
This Sunday was awesome! I gave my first talk in Portuguese about the importance of references from members. I talked about how king lamoni and ammon worked together and that king Lamoni had given Ammon many references and baptized many people! I thought it was a pretty sweet talk! I will send you it in English :) But all the members came up and congratulated me on a successful talk :)

So this week was awesome. WE are preparing Joao Batista for baptism this week! So I am really excited about that! Honestly he is an elect of God because we didn't have the opportunity to talk to him a lot during this week but he came to church on his own!!!
Well that's all the happened this week Until the next :)
