I was totally blown away! tell me that is a coincidence and i will call you a lier! that is the Lord workng in his way and time so amazing!!! so this area is good i am liking it. we do have to stay in the house a little still but it has given me some good study time. i am half way done with the book of mormon in english and am through matthew in the bible in portugeuse. i cant beleive how much more i get out of thee scriptures here. so things are going good here. i thought i was in the getto my first transfer but i think i was just shell shocked. haha but remember when i told you about those houses on stilts? thats what alot of my area is. o and something cool about my area is that part of it is on the coast of Rio Negro (negro river) it is way cool but they have some places to fish there so it is torture to see people fising haha. but i got to go i will call sunday afternoon to give you the number to call. i wll try to time it where you aren't in church but i don't know if you have church in the morning or in the afternoon but if you dont answer i will call later and i will call your cell phone mom. talk to you guys sunday love ya
