another week gone ‏ 9/12/07

Hello everyone. Everything is going great. I´m finally starting to pick up on Portuguese. Our Brasilian roommates left yesterday. It was sad. I already wrote you all an email but the computers crashed so I'm back trying it again. Good thing cause now i can tell you what candy i NEED, ya need. I'd kill for some candy right now. Um lets see, skittles, tropical ones. Por favor. Watermelon sourpatch, Jordan will know which ones. Lots of jolley ranchers, some twizzlers any flavor but black, jolley rancher again. Chocolate will probably melt so none there, and chocolate down here is amazing for that matter. Anything you can stuff in there, letters you know. Its all good. Pics of everyone. Well i´ll do my best with the little time i have now. Stupid computers. Last week went very well. I went proselyting again, this time in a park instead of a busy street like times square. It was great. I learned that I must always have a prayer in my heart and did much much better than before. The spirit was really working hard through me and my comp. It is really amazing to see peoples faces light up and fill with happiness and peace. My testimony has grown so much every day that I´m here. I spend all my time studying and its paying off. My Portuguese will come with time, it still has its frustrating moments. We got a new elder in our district that was supposed to fly with us from SLC on to Brasil. He broke his leg like the week before so he has been in Provo for 5 weeks. Elder Cavacante and I have been helping each other with our languages, but now he left me. I was just up in my room a little while ago and they set some new places for roommates, so hopefully we´ll get some more Brasilians. Its starting to get really hot. I´m dying in this 1000 degree tiny 4x4 shop typing in the sun. j/k It isn´t quite that hot, maybe 80 -85, somewhere in there with some humidity. Way to kill my shirts with sweat stains. Thanks alot sun. I need you to send me like a bank report so I can see what the card is charging like. I´m going to have to take out 80 reis next week so it will be about 40 bucks us dollars. I ordered some stuff for my scriptures, and of course some snacks for my last couple of weeks. So if you would send me a bank statement that would be wonderful. I need to know if debit is cheaper. I think it is but am not 4 sho. I used it like twice already for internet usage. Tell my brothers i love them and keep working on Jordan to write me. I appreciated what I got from him, it made my day. If you guys like dear elder better, that comes for me on Thursdays, so that would be fine. Emails are great, whatever works out best for you all at the time. If you haven´t already sent me that blank card for Meghan, you can send it with the book. Um just to be safe send the package to Porto Alegre because packages seem to be taking a while to get here from the states. Sister Smith can only send so much from the ctm to the mission home, so just go ahead and send it straight to my mission. Por favor obrigade boa tarde. Well time is running low so i must be going. Thanks for everything. I love you all. Tell everyone hello and I love them. Thanks for all the prayers. Give Meghan a great big hug for me and tell her thanks for the package. I know that this church is true and that the work I´m doing is called of God. The blessings are all receiving now and in the future are without number. I love this gospel and I love the spirit being a missionary brings me. I get to be engulfed in it every second of my day. That alone is priceless. I love you all. Be safe. You're all in my prayers everyday, which by the way is about 500 times a day that we missionaries pray. Love you all, ELDER RAPP
