January 25th

Yeah, a few days ago, we went to go get açaí which is like ice cream, and the news was passing with this giant snow storm crossing the entire east coast. They talked alot about New York and New Jersey, but I was thinking "hey maybe the family wont have school!" And I forgot this was dads first time being able to use the 4 wheel drive in the new expedition. I'm sure it was nice. 

Yeah that snow board was mine a long time ago, and after trying out real snowboarding, its a lot of fun. Just the first two or 3 days hurts a lot because your rear end spends a lot of time on the ground. 

Last p day, we had to go to the court house because my comp had to sign some official paper work to get a package from his house in Chile, and we saw some people waving at us to go talk to them. They started speaking Portuguese, but after a minute they said that they are from Utah, close to where Jordan lives, in Bountiful. They are Brazilian doing some official paper work, and so the wife took a picture of me and sent it to you! We saw them at church, then ate lunch with them at the stake prez house. They are good friends. They just left to go back to Utah yesterday. 

The Broadcast was really good! It had like 3 or 4 general authorities, and they talked a lot about teaching repentance and baptizing converts. It was a great training about how we cant look at investigators as objects that we need to throw in the water, but as people we are trying to help to change their lives. Baptism is a part of true repentance, not the other way around. 

This week we taught a ton of people, and were able to have 3 at church! two teenagers and one 22 year old. All guys. They liked it, and in fact, the 22 year old was asked if he was going to be baptized and he said not today but he will in a little bit. It was cool. He is actually one of the funniest investigators I've taught. I told him that my birthday was next Sunday, and he started singing happy birthday, but with the words Merry Christmas because he confused them. I started laughing so hard and so did he when he realized it. Then he asked me how do you laugh in English. At that point I couldn't control my self. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. 

Today we have our first pday with our zone! Its actually going to be really cool. We rented this place with volley ball courts and basketball, and we are going to have a giant barbecue afterwords. 

Love Elder Moss
