I am doing well. I've been really focused and I'm having a great time. I love the work. The one problem I had this week is I got sick. I had a really stuffy nose and stuff. My head and throat hurt. I wasn't able to work for 2 days. That's what made this week a little hard. I love being out here on a mission though. I can't believe how fast the time is going by. I guess it flies when you're having fun and working hard. I can't believe it's already been 5 weeks since last transfer. It's pretty likely I'll be getting transferred this time around. Transfers are feb 8. I really don't want to leave Ron and Dee though. They are the coolest recent converts ever! When I fly into Salt Lake to go back to school I'm totally visiting them! This has been a crazy week though. Even though I was sick I had so much to do. It was stressful not being able to work when we had people we needed to see. I still had a good time though.
I think time is speeding up here. I realized 2 years is short and I can't waste any time being discouraged. January is already over and we've had 200 baptisms mission wide. I think we'll reach our goal of 3500 this year!
Ok so our zone, North Zone, all got the Standard of Excellence! President Winn took us out to Tucanos. It is a Brazilian Churrasco. They bring you all the meat you want! I'm still full! It was amazing they had tenderloin and sirloin and mango cod and chicken and bacon wrapped turkey! I also tried chicken hearts. They were pretty good. My favorite thing was the grilled pineapple. I ate like 2+ pounds of meat! Then we came here to email.
Guys, When i sent that sad email I was kind of venting. I have done a lot of praying and all of you back home have helped me out a lot. I'm doing a lot better and I want to say thanks. The one thing I missed most wile I was laid up in bed was study. That was something I always had to look forward to, but last week I felt too sick to. I'm excited to do that again. It's really helpful. Thanks again for all the help.
The kid we baptized was awesome! His name is Angel. He's the one with all the video games. He's so cool. We had a fun time at his baptism.
I love you!
