Hello everyone. So this week to come will start something very interesting here in
. . .
The World Cup. For any American out there who doesn't know, the World Cup is
only the biggest sporting competition in the world (perhaps second only to the
Summer Olympics) and this year it is here in Brazil !!! The first game is this
Thursday. But for us missionaries it is really just an annoyance because we
don't watch TV and when Brazil
plays we have to stay at home because everybody goes crazy It is safer to be
inside, I guess. People have already stopped working and school gets out this
week for the World Cup and doesn't start again till it is over. This place
likes Soccer. Brazil
This week continued to work as normal even with preparations for the Cup going on. I have now been a missionary for more than six months. That’s a quarter of my mission, people! What’s crazy to me is not that that date came but that my mission continued after that. It’s interesting how the days just keep coming. I feel like I just got here still, when really I am a good way into this whole thing.
I don't have a whole lot else to say this week. It was a good one. I hope you all are doing well. I hope everything stays normal for you all unless you wanted it to be different and then I hope it changes. I love you all.
P.S. We had stake conference and it was a broadcast from
Did you know that Richard G. Scott speaks Portuguese? From his
accent he probably speaks Spanish as well because a couple of times during the
talk he spoke the wrong language, but I think everybody understood what he meant
just the same. Salt Lake
