Oi y'all,Hows my favorite fam doing this week? I'm doing great!!! This week was one of my best in this area. I didn´t baptize but it was still one of the best working weeks here. We have been teaching Cinara for something like 5 months. Wanting her to separate from her bf or get married. She ended up getting separated and we thought we were gonna baptize but we went back to do the baptismal interview no one could find her. Well with enough faith anything is possible. We went into a members home knelt down in prayer and asked for her to show up and give a good reason to be baptised or not as she likes drama. Well she showed up. Prayers are heard and answered I can testify to that. She told us she cant live alone without `making cookies`as Andrea would say. OOOOOO So that baptism will have to wait a little longer to gain a testimony on the law of chastity. Bummer I know but I know she´ll get her head on straight. Well it has been hotter than CRAP this week!! throwing down 90´s and the humidity. Its only spring so why the heck is this going on? Life is like this though. Summer is getting closer now. I'm so excited for General conference. It is the best tool I have as a missionary. The best opportunity for investigators to feel the spirit and gain a testimony of a living prophet. O it will be so great. Its my 3rd conf and I only have 1 more then I have to go home. Scary. This week I've been out 14 months that's 1 year in the field. Wow that's really crazy to see how much I've grown and how much I've accomplished. I wish every young man would take this opportunity and fly. It is so rewarding and has taught me and still teaches me so much. We threw down another churrasco today. I have been name the gaucho here, man I cook a mean churrasco. Well have to make one the first week when I get home. Is meat as expensive there as it is here? Man we use a ton of money in one day of partying as a district. Today was 10 a person so it was 80 bucks or so. So I did something Saturday that has been about a year and a half since I,ve done it. Guess guess... ... ... I Welded. Never though I would go to Brasil on my mission for 1 and 2 I would end up welding.; Bam, I'm good. The Bishop liked my work. But something horrible happened. He didn´t have a welding hood for me to use so I burnt the crap out of my eyes. To put the story straight, I didn´t sleep that night because my eyes hurt so bad. But I gained 1 more testimony of the priesthood. 4:30 in the morning, I woke my comp up to give me a blessing. Slept like a baby after that. I was dumb in the first place to not use any protection. We did The helping hands project that the church is known for world wide. I painted walls, welded and ate a bunch of food. So, that was my good week. I hope you enjoy your longer email this week. It wasn´t boring and it was full of stories. I love you all so very much!!! Keep being great. Be missionaries always. Muah Love you all!!!ELDER RAPP Enjoy conference!! Take notes. Go into it with ?´s in mind. They will be answered I promise. Invite some nonmembers over to watch a session or two or even all four!!!
