oi 12/10/07

Hello family... hows my great family doing this week? I think my mother reads minds... I've been looking for a nativity scene for quite some time now mother. Crazy minds think alike neh. oooo this week was slow for me. We worked our butts off but didn´t get much in return. We had alot of new investigators but other than that we had troubles finding people at home to teach. We had like 18 new investigators I think. Oh I spoke in church yesterday, as usual but the branch Pres. hasn´t figured out that I don´t speak very well in Portuguese. He thinks I can take up a 20 minute block of time... hahaha. Man let me tell you what that's tough in Portuguese. That's tough in English for me. Blah it was interesting. We went on a division with our zone leaders Tuesday an Wednesday so I was in Pelotas for the night. It was good. Their area is completely flat, mine is nothing but uphill everywhere. Oh lunch there was amazing. I don´t know what it was but it was good. No not anything interesting, just amazing and not beans and rice. I never thought I'd say this but I actually like beans and rice. Maybe not for every meal, everyday but its good stuff. I had something I needed to ask you guys to send me but I don´t remember so maybe later. A can of mountain dew would be good. Hint hint next package pppplease since you love me so much. We had churrasco the other day ba! que bomb. It was amazing! Nothing like some good ol bbq every now and then. They don´t know how to cook fish down here, they throw it in some grease for like an hour until its black. Ya not so much liking the fish. I miss the good ol salmon and trout from home. Man reading through this email, it's probably the most random thing ever. I sent you guys something the other day. Let me know when it gets there hopefully not too late. It was 65 reis to send it the faster way so I decided not to send it that way. I´m a missionary, I´m poor. We have zone conference on Thursday. Sweet, maybe I´ll get some mail or packages. Who knows, oh and the conference Ensign. I´ve been waiting for that for a while now, who knows we´ll see. Hopefully we´ll have something interesting to write next week. Speaking of interesting, did I tell you guys about the drunk man? We were walking down the road and there was a man sitting on the side of the road crying. We asked him if he needed help and he just cried. We helped him up and walked him home. Man he was toasted. He couldn't´t even walk. Pretty much had to carry him home. He kept saying amen amen amen to everything we said. It was very interesting. Well I´m going to go for now. Have a wonderful week everyone. I love you all. Thanks so much for all you do for me and all the missionaries out there. You all are always in my prayers. love, ELDER RAPP
