February 16, 2015

No.  I'm not trunky.  That's just what the Email is called.  It means that you're going home in six months and you have to send in all your stuff for them to buy your plane ticket home.  Yep, and I got it today.  WEIRD!  I hit my six months to sexy this last Tuesday.  That's so weird!

This week was good.  Carnaval started, so it's been interesting.  I'm not anywhere near a big city, so nothing happens on CARNAVAL.  But things have got to be CRAZY in Rio de Janeiro, Recife, and Salvador.  Those are the 3 main cities with the biggest parties.  Every big city has a little something, but when you think of the iniquity of Carnaval, it's these 3 cities mainly.  The rest, even here in the little cities, is just a lot of alcohol.  Which is a normal weekend here in Brasil.  HA!

It was a pretty good week workwise.  We had quite a few lessons and did lots of contacts.  The problem: Work and Carnaval.  So sadly none of our investigators went to Church on Sunday.  But, hopefully they will this Sunday.

The highlight this week was that Elder Magalhaes hit 1 year on Friday.  and it was Friday the 13th.  We bought him a cake.  I also found what I thought was silly string, but it wasn't.  HA~!  It was "artificial snow".  So, it was really just white foam.  but we still sprayed him with it Friday night.  Haha!

Friday was also interviews with Presidente Brum.  It was really good.  The assistants also did a little training with him before starting the interviews.  I was one of the first ones to be interviewed since we're from another city.  So, that was probably good.  I got to him early before too many missionaries bugged him.  HAHA.  But he shared a message with us about all the characteristics of the army of Helman.  Obedient, Strong, Humble, Diligent.  but the main thing, they had a vision of what they could be.  All of these traits without a vision of what we can be will ever take us to our full potential.  Because if we don't have a goal that we want to reach, any path will do.  But, any path will not take us to oru full potential.

I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, Elder Scott JACKSON Taylor
