So I know you all are wondering if I stayed in my area so I get right down to what my last few days have been like. Today I was transferred to a new area. My new area is called (Almirante Tamandaré) it’s a little closer to the city but it still has a small town feel to it and with a few small mountains close by and a lot of dirt roads so I still feel at home. (well not exactly...) But you’re really going to think that the world is small after I tell you my next news with my new area, I also got a new comp. He´s American and from REXBURG, IDAHO!!!! Wow huh! it kind of shocked me that I was put with person from my own town. His name is Tyke Roberts and has 5 months in the mission. I think I remember seeing him a few times when I was in high school but he remembers me but he was in Jakes graduating class. Were going work supper hard and baptize!! It’s going to be really cool. I’ll try to send a pic of him if it works in this internet place. The ward is good from what he says and the house is ok.. I’ll have some cleaning to do when I get back, I probably won’t sleep until it’s all clean to my standards. The house was flooded a while ago but they fixed the house up a while ago so it’s about like my first area house. I was able to get all my stuff into my bags again. I’ll probably send some books home to gain space and lose weight. The bad news is that my wheels on my bags are broken so it’s going to be really hard to fix that. I’ll probably end up just dragging the suit cases around for 2 years.... :(
Anyway it was hard for me to say bye to the people in my last area. I really don’t like goodbyes but there are some really good investigators that are there! This week while at an investigators house, there dog got hit but didn’t die. They were all crying, and the dog was almost dead. I thought I was going to half to finish killing it with a shovel so it wouldn’t suffer (Which I was glad I didn’t half to) but it almost stopped breathing a few times...
Charton was doing fine, but is having a hard time understanding the law of chastity.. He stopped smoking and everything but hasn’t obeyed the law of chastity. But I’m sure he will be baptized soon and there are a few other investigators there that are really good.
It sounds like it’s getting warm there finally that’s good. I hope the flowers look good and pretty but I better try to send some pics. I hope everyone is safe. I received some mission ties and I have a lot to respond to for some reason they have been backed up for 3 weeks. I got like 6 letters all at once but I’m doing well. This week will be adjusting once again and so I’m sure I’ll have plenty to write next week after I get to know my comp he’s still quiet. I love you all, thanks for the missionteies and e-mails. Be safe. Love, -Josh
