Another day in paradise ‏ 8/15/07

Hello again, It was great to hear from you guys. Wow give me the chills with your cool stories. I might have some for you that will make you happy. Mom it is the ctm down here, everythings backwards. I went to the temple again today. the Campinas temple that is. I love p days because the temple is such an amazing place. Brasil is so great i don´t know if i told you but everyone is nice. They all saw oi hello sorry on the street. Some little kids flipped us off earlier so i guess not everyone is nice. haha Well everything is still going great i mean i have my frustrations with the language but they´ll work out. Don´t worry about me not getting fed whoo they feed me 3 times a day and big huge meals. I have gym 3 days a week to compensate for it. The food is great i love all the fresh fruit they have for every meal. not like the u s but like papaya pineapple guava man that is good grapes the size of my head. The food is good. Would you do me a favor a make sure Justin reads these I want him to know that i love what i´m doing and i know that the gospel is true. Tell him how much i love him and i pray for him everyday. Jordan i miss you buddy. your my best friend and i got to be your best friend for the last cuple of years. It is good to hear your doing fine. Some advise once school starts is to work hard and study hard. seminary is a huge blessing. You WILL grow so much in being there and participating. I never was one to be really in to the lessons and participating, i think that was why i was so shy. Now that I have been here and been enveloped in the gospel i wish i would have done more in seminary. Be an example be a friend to all. I promise you that if you make the effort and strive to bring yourself closer to the Lord you will be happier. I want you to know that I love you and you mean alot to me. Hang in there and keep making good decisions you will see a change and have a special feeling about you. I love you Tell Meghan that i love her she is an amazing girl. Take care of her. Let her know how much i appreciate her love her encouraging letters and her sacrifice. Give her a great big hug for me. txt her and tell her that i love her. Hang in there bud. I love you your an amazing kid. Please pass these emails to andrea too! They dont give me much time to be on the computer so i can´t get to every one. Mom and Dad i want you to know that you´ve done well. i´m exactly the person i wanted to be. The mission has brought me so much closer to the Lord. There hasnt been 1 prayer that hasnt been answered while i´ve been out. I know that my prayers for my loved ones back at home are being answered everyday. Its good to hear the improvement of so many. I have had a headache everyday since i got here, and i asked my comanion what i should do. Wow i look up to that kid he told me to pray about it and rely on the lord. I've learned that when i want to talk to the lord i pray and when i want the lord to talk to me i read the scriptures. I recieved an answer to my prayer in Alma 31 verses like 30-35 i believe is where i was directed to. What a great blessing to me to know that my father in heaven loves me that much. The language will come i know it will so i´m going to keep my spirits high and shoot for the sky. My faith increases everyday. I am grateful for both of your examples to me. Never back down your children do learn from you. I have grown to love my whole family so much through out my life and i feel your prayers and your love and blessings going out to me. Read Moroni 8: 2-3 that reminds me that i need not worry about what is going on at home everything is ok and your sacrifices for me are priceless. Thank you soo much for your love and support. I know that you are being blessed as well. Eu sei que José Smith é um profeta de Deus e Gordon B. Hinckley é um profeta de Deus. Jesus Cristo vive. O Livro de Mórmon é verdadeiro em nomé de Jesus Cristo Amém. i love you all your in my thoughts and prayers. Love, ELDER RAPP TCHAU
