"I like poop"

i dont have much time this week to write but ill try to get as much in as i can!
i love Itatiaia! its amazing. the people are very humble and very receptive to the spirit! we have new investigators that are amazing, they are just have problems with authority and with understanding that there is only one true church.
my companion is great! she is very obedient and teached me new things everyday! portugues is coming along pretty well! its still kind of hard to understand sometimes when people talk really fast but im getting better everyday and i know that the gift of tongues is real and that the Lord is with me and helps me everyday. I have also started an aula de ingles (english class) its awesome! the first day like 20 people came! and a lot of them were less actives! so that was a great miracle! 
My area is a really small town where there is like nothing haha but this week i go to go to my fist district meeting and it was so exciting it was like driving into new york! ha there were so many people and buildings, it was really fun! also i made a joke about skinny dipping and my whole district was like whats that?(im the only american in my district the rest are all brazilians) and so i told them what it meant and they all laughed so hard and now they joke about it all the time, its hilarious. they also like to make fun of me a lot. i accidentally said i like poop... its very similar to coconut, they literally just move the accent over, but now everytime they see me they just tell me to not eat poop cause its bad for me.. they think they are very funny haha
well im out of time but i will try to write more next week! i love all of you and always remember to follow the example of Jesus Christ!

This week was crazy!! i left the ctm at 9 am on tuesday and our flight to juiz de fora was supposed to leave at 12:40 that afternoon but it started raining and apparently thats a huge deal in Sao paulo... so our flight got delayed 5 times and finally at 6 pm it got cancelled. we had to get our suitcases and call the ctm (its like 2 hours away from the airport) they said they didnt know what to do and so they called pres. cascardi and he didnt know what to do either. so we had a great adventure and slept at the airport until a flight came in at like 4 in the morning, the funny thing is that it was like a 40 minute flight... haha but all is well! it was very fun and we started prosleyting in the airport! im sure thats why it happened there was probably some who desperately need to hear the gospel that day! 
we got to juiz de fora at like 5 am on wednesday and our poor president had been waiting the whole time! he let us go sleep then we got up at around 11 am (so weird!) then we ate at his house and got some orientation and then we got our trainors! my companion is sister Nascimento, she is incredible!! i absolutley love her! she is such a hard worker and she is exactly obedient which is fantastic! our area right now is Itatiaia which is actually in rio de janiero. its a very small town and we have to walk everywhere because there isnt really public transportation.
 the first day here was crazy, we taught 5 lessons and i taught the restoration basically by myself which was really scary but it went really well! we made 20 contacts and walked more than i have ever walked in my life! when we got home at night i was so tired and dead but i was so happy! i love the people here so much already! they are all so poor and humble, and its incredible to see how the Lord prepared His children to recieve the gospel! i see miracles everyday! we contacted a few people on the street and invited them to come to church on sunday and three of them came! its amazing how the people here are so receptive!
we have a brand new investigator, her name is Leanes and she is awesome! we contacted her on the street and when we asked for her address she said that it was close by and that we could share a message with her right now! it was awesome we taught the restoration and she had a lot of questions but she was very enthusiastic! she is not married but living with her boyfriend which is something we have to resolve but after that she is ready for baptism!
i wish i could write every single thing that im exeperiencing because its amazing! but i dont have very much time so ill have to settle for telling you bits and pieces haha but i love all of you so much and i hope you are all doing well! remember to always follow the example of Jesus Christ and use His atonement in your life every day!

Ao Campo!!

So im finally leaving the ctm (centro de tortura mental) inside joke haha but no it was great here at the ctm and i had a blast!! but im leaving here on terça! im so excited to go out to the campo and teach people! i feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be serving here in brasil and i know that the Lord has prepared people just for me to teach them about this incredible gospel!! i dont have much time to write today but i wanted to say that i love all of you and i hope you are all doing well!  
tell joe and ash that i love them very much and i miss them soo much, tell them i say to do their best everyday and to read the scriptures and pray everyday! as i have been out here i pray and read the scriptures all day!! and i also teach some lessons but 10 hours of my day is just praying and reading and i can testify to you guys that is icredible the difference these two things can make in your life! at times prayer and reading your scriptures can seem like small things but its through these two things that we are able to stay on the straight and narrow! these are two of the most important things you need to be doing in your life! if you are not reading and praying everyday then you are not progressing and if your not progressing than you are digressing and that is not what Heavenly Father wants! the first principle of the gospel is fatih, and faith without works is dead so if we are not faithfully reading and praying everyday we are not obeying the laws and principles of the gospel. i know you guys are amazing children of God and i know he is proud of you and loves you so show him that you love him too and are worthy of his blessings in your life! i love you all sooo  much

mami te extraño muito! quiero q sempre estes feliz!! te amo te amo te amo!! gracias pr ser la mejor madre del mundo!!
