Hello from Brasil ‏ 11/5/07

Hello everyone! Hows things in Idaho? I bet it isn´t as hot as Brasil. It is now summer I believe with 100% humidity, its quite fun. I love my cold showers now that's for sure. There's nothing like coming home after a long days work and taking a cold shower. But apparently I don´t know heat yet. It must still be cold here or something. Everyone wears pants and long shirts still. On really hot days no one wears clothes. It seems the clothes just don´t exist, blah, no good. Today has been kinda just a relaxing day we have no money so we went to a members house and watched a movie and ate the worst beans and rice I've had yet. Very very salty today. Things are going great still. Well people aren´t wanting our message and people aren´t investigating but other than that things are great. We had a black guy the other day say he didn't want our message because we are white that was cool. In his words `what color is God huh? Do you really know what color he is? That was interesting. We had some churrasco the other day. It was amazing. I could eat just that everyday, but I will live with beans and rice. Whats the word on the condo it seems to be coming up really fast. I think that I´m missing the snow huh? No fair do you think you could send me some? Just a little bit though. Al right just pictures of other all will be great lots of them please. Even if you have to print them the cheap way that will work for me. This first transfer is almost through whoo time has really flown by. I feel like I just got to Porto Alegre but it has been a whole month already. I believe by the end of next week I will know if I´m staying here in Nilo Wulff or not. I really would like to stay now that I actually know where I´m at and have some friends. A few people speak a little English so that helps. The Portuguese is still rough, but I´m learning alot more here than in Sao Paulo. That was an Americanized English speaking place. Ya, but it was a great learning experience. I miss it, but wouldn´t want to go back, confusing I know but its true. I never told you all but I participated in a few Portuguese blessings last week. It was was sweet. I anointed and my comp blessed. It was very powerful. I understand most words but am having trouble putting sentences together to figure out what they are saying. I think I speak better than I understand at this point. I´ll keep chuggin along and working my but off. Ya the weight has dropped tremendously. I´m gonna come home hopefully skinny. If i keep going at this rate I will for sure. Something about walking a 100 miles a day will do that to you. Well I love you all and you are all in my prayers. I want Andrea's email address so I can write my fav sis. k . thanks a million love you guys. until next week have a great week. muah! ELDER RAPP
