Stayin' Alive

Bom dia peeps!

Its been another good week down here in the hood! This week has been a week of some crazy adventures! I have seen some really messed up stuff haha!

First off I got to have another experience with spiders! They are a lot bigger in this area than the last! We did a service project and we were cleaning out this old ladies backyard thingy and we found the motherload! I was wearing my Jesus sandles and had a trianchula run across my toes..... yes I freaked out.. yes I jumped.. and yes I did scream like a little girl... I went to kill it by stepping on it.... it didnt die from my weight and started freaking out! So I beat it to death with a shovel haha! Just when you think it doesent get any worse, we found a nest of trianchulas..... probably had 20 or so that were a little smaller than a baseball..... yup that was fun haha I totally handles that like a man should. 

Now to tell you about the more beautiful bug I want to tell yall about the butterflys here! holy flip!! They are incredible! I have seen every kind of color! Black pink blue green orange yellow!! They are so freaking awesome!

We have this guy that we are teaching and he is freaking awesome! He teaches English so we got to go to his english class and act like celebrities for all his students! They thought it was so cool that we were Americans! I felt like a pretty cool cat im not going to lie! 

A little more creapy story is about one of the members in our branch. He is around 15 years old and has a very strong testimony.... when hes not possesed by demonds.... Its really creepy because he actually sees them and they control him and our mission president says that we have to help him and it gets really interesting. His house and his property is haunted. Like I hate going there. Its the most aweful place I think I have ever been in my life. But we are helping him so we have to go.

hmmmm what else... I baught a switch blade knife from a member for like six bucks so that was freaking awesome haha! And I saw a dead guy on the road.... Also saw a guy that was hit by a car, that was really gross. Oh and we were in a car race with one of the members and we were jumping speed bumps haha...... yeah that was my week haha! oh and the best way I can explain my companions is with two words... glee club.... yup. haha gotta love it!

Well I love yall and love to hear from ya!

Hey der peeps!

So I got transfered today! Really Really Really far! haha! I had to get up at 3:45 to catch a taxi to the bus station and then take a four hour bus ride to my new area! Im a little tired im not going to lie! I sat by a sister on the bus but I didnt talk to her because I didnt want to try and translate that early in the morning! She was american though and neither of us new that haha! 

I think im on the other side of brazil now... I really have no idea! CanĂ´inhas is the name of the city im working in. Its a small little town and it is a farming comunity planted in the heart of a jungle! Like a real live jungle! With vines and tarzan lives here! Its crazy! When you go by the trees you cant see in ten feet! 

On the bus ride I saw a deer crossing sign and this is going to sound weird but it was one of the most comforting feelings I have felt here haha! I was so excited just to see a picture of a deer on stupid sign! Im such a redneck! Also this town has John Deer tractors so that also made me feel pretty awesome! I can tell Im going to like this area a lot! 

We have a senior missionary couple here and they are my favorite people ever! The Browns. Elder Brown is good friends with Bishop Field and lives in Roy. He is the only person that doesnt try to speak portuguese with me 24/7. Its real nice to talk English to people. Like you have no idea how amazing an English word sounds when all you hear is portuguese.

Well Thats all folks. Ta Ta!
