Hey y'all, Its always great to get a letter from everyone at once. Sorry I don´t have time to write everyone of you all the time. The time just passes by too fast and I type slow anyways. I hope you all understand. I love you all and am always thinking about you and praying for you. So we had a baptism Saturday. Everything went well. And this week we have another one. Starting out the transfer well. My district is has baptised 7 in 2 weeks. We have another 4 this week as a district. Wednesday we have interviews with Pres. Johnson. That is always a good thing. He always knows the answers to all of my questions. He is a very very smart man. Well all is going well here. Normal stress of life as a missionary. As a dl it is even worse. I tried calling some of my Elders last night to see how the week went for them and I ended up getting ahold of the slackers after 2 hours. They got home way after curfew and I had to show a little hard love. Stress. Don´t know why I was called to be D L but hey I'm learning a ton. So we wasted our whole day today trying to find some museums in town and they ended up being closed. grrrr we also tried to go to the ort once more, people can´t go in without working there. So internet is my only highlight of today. So I'm anxious to see some pics of a few 30 pointers hanging in the garage next week. Pass that on to my daddy and Bro. So its not as hot here on the bottom of the world. Bagé was wicked hot but here always has a breeze from the ocean. It's great. I don´t know how the summer will be however. So we turned the clock forward an Saturday what is the time difference now? So I am thinking that I'll only see my package here in the first week of November at zone conference. But I had something I wanted you guys to send me. ... don´t remember ... still nothing. One of those cheep o body armour from Walmart, remember the one I always was using. I think I still have that one if you all could take a look in my drawers or in a clothes box. Speaking of my stuff, is my room still how I left it or did you guys pack it all up and put it in a corner? Well my time is running down so I will rapp it up. hahaha rapp get it. I love you all so very much and can´t wait for all of my letters next week. MUAH!!!! Have an amazing week. ELDER RAPP

Hey y'all, Hows the worlds best family doing this week? Well life is full of nothing but great news... ready... ready... alright I´ll just tell ya. I was sent from Bagé to Pelotas Monday night from Pelotas to POA Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon another six hours back down to Rio Grande. My area sits on the beach. Ya baby, thats the life. I was Called to be district leader here. I have tons of responsibility now and less time to work. I threw down 4 baptismal interviews last Friday having never done one in my life. It went well. We are looking at 5 baptisms here soon. Hopefully we work out a few problems with an investigator and throw her in the water this week. The 25th we are looking at 4 more. The ward here is tons stronger than the last one. My first day here lunch was interesting. We got there a bit late and the guy is very retarded and didn´t give us lunch. But the spirit touched one of the Sisters in the ward and she had already prepared lunch. Heavenly father knows everything that will happen and watched out for 2 Elders that were hungry. Tomorrow I have to give my first district meeting training. OOOO don´t know how that one will go. No really it will go very well, I'm not worried at all. My companion from the ctm is a zone leader here . ELDER ZUNDEL will give me a hand if I need it. SO life is going great my new comp rocks. He has 6 months or so out and is a hard worker. We are doing well . A few very strange complications with some investigators but all will turn out well. So I loved the pics. I miss my family tons every time that I look at pics from home. Tell dad that when he puts the 30 pointer to the ground I would love to see some pics. . So hows my fam. Anything new and exciting. This will be the last year you all will go to the condo without me. Just don´t go cancel everything and never go any more. If all the kids have to chip in, we will so that we can always have our family trip. So the weather is alot colder down here. It gets chilly at night sometimes. I'm trying to send you all some pics from the beach but it's going way slow. I will send more next week at another internet place. Here is wicked slow and I'm not liking it. Hows Jordan doing tell him to write me. Tell everyone hello for me. Have a great week, know that everyone of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm going to start looking for nativity scenes soon so I will be needing the green stuff for that. I had to use money last week to travel because I had nothing but that money was reimbursable and I will get most of it back. Thanks for everything you all doing for me. Until next week MUAH!!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!! XOXOXOXELDER RAPP

Hey y'all!! I'm running like crazy today to get everything done. Transfers are tomorrow and I got the boot. I'm going to Pelotas at 5pm 2 your time, then from there I'll leave at 6 or so tomorrow morning and go back up to Porto Alegre. Sweet, I'll be able to go back to the temple. So that pic in the cardboard box, I actually slept in that box that night. I think I'll stay at that house again tonight so I'll pull it out again and sleep in it. Hey sweet story... I killed a dove this last week and just happened to have churrasco for lunch with some members... Thinking what I was thinking. Ya baby, I cooked him up and ate me a dove. O churrasco meat we use alot of ribs and normal cuts off the cows and pork and chicken. The drumsticks are wicked sweet. So conference was so great. I only saw Sundays sessions. But they were good ones. The apostles really were throwing down the hard core burns on people. They told it how it was for sure. I just laughed. I watched it in English, it's alot better that way anyways. The translators don´t usually get the funnies in there very well. We had 6 investigators there. Man I've never been so happy in my life. But now that we are going to baptize, they are kicking my butt out of Bage and sending me back to POA. Well I love you all and am so grateful for the sacrifices you have made for me so that I can be here. Muah xoxox It means the world to me. Well have a great week and next week I´ll let you all know where I'm at and who my new comp is. Love you all !!!!ELDER RAPP
