Haven´t been able to talk in a while huh ‏ 10/8/07

Hey everybody!!! How's things in the great state of Idaho? Sounds like things are going great, hunting season in full swing and snow on the ground. 2 years and i´ll be back in the woods. I´m missing my mountains. I´m in the southern part of Porto Alegre called Nilo Wulff. It's completely flat. Cobble stone roads, dirt roads. you know. We do have hot water every now and again. I have had 3 meals since I got here on Thursday. I´m doing great. I do have some advice for you, Feed the missionaries. hahaha I thought that would make you laugh. But really we don´t eat a whole lot. I´m grateful to be here though. My new companion is E. Rasmussen. He is from Utah, imagine that everyone is from Utah. Things are going great. I love the area, the people, my companion. We have 10-12 baptisms scheduled right now so we´ll see how those turn out. A 14 year old young lady named Brenda is supposed to be baptised on Saturday. I´ll let you know how that goes next week. We contacted a lady named Cristiani last week and have taught her twice now. She agreed to be baptised on the third of next month and seems to be doing well. We continue to pray for new investigators because we aren´t finding a whole lot right now but we have been blessed with lots of references and other contacts. We ´ll continue to work hard and let the spirit work in their hearts. Conference was great. I missed Saturday night and the priesthood session but the rest of it was great. I saw the trees changing colors on temple square. I miss that but oo i´ll be alright. I need some more pics of home. Anything would be great so send them in the mail if you would. I need some hunting pics of me and everyone too. How is hunting season going by the way? Is anyone even going now that i´m gone. The mission field is great i can understand a word or two here and there but that's about it. It takes alot of patience most of the time and can be at times really frustrating. I´m learning faster here than i was in the ctm. I have my patriarchal blessing and Meghans ady so i think we're good there. I believe it is right so i will send her letter there this week. Last weeks was sent to the house. So ya, how long is it taking to get there? I have limited time this week so I love you all and pray for each of you personally. I know that this gospel is true and the blessing are without number. I know that this is where I am to be right now and things will be great. We will learn from our trials and grow so much. Pray always and know that your Father in Heaven loves you. I love you all. Thanks for all the prayers and letters. Keep sending them, it is good to here from ya´ll. Love, ELDER RAPP
