Little Rough to Say Good-bye

Hey Guys,
Well this last week was a little rough. We had our last Zone Conference with President and Sister Vieira. It was really good. He told us to just welcome the new President with Open Arms.

After we went up and gave them a hug and talked to them. President told me to just take good care of my comp. Then I told him how grateful I was to him. Then he gave me a huge hug, it was like ten times a Brother Norton hug, it was the best. I will really miss President. I then talked with Sister. She told me about how proud she was to have known me. She said something that really made me feel good. She said that when she looks at me she sees a light. She says it is the best thing ever. She told me to share this light with everyone. I am really going to miss sister also. They were just the best. I am so grateful that I had 7 months to get to know them and just how warm and I don´t know how I can explain how they are, they are just the BEST!!!!!!!

Well the lady that sent Matt the Email, well she is coming out to Utah next month like the 23ish. Well she wants to visit you guys. I gave her the address and phone number. I hope that is okay. She just really wants to see you guys. I thought that is really cool. Hey I have a question how much is a 2 day and 3 day Disneyland pass? They are going to LA when they come up, so I told them I would ask the Experts how much.

Well nothing really has happened. Well I love you guys, and could you include my comp Elder Busico in your prayers to help him get better, that would be great. Love you all!!

Sent: Mon, Jun 21, 2010 05:02 PM
Hey guys,
I had an awesome birthday. We had a party at a members home. That was so much fun. Well my comp is doing a little better. He has an ulcer in his stomach and has gastric problems. Well he is taking medicine for that. I am really sad because on Wednesday is our last Conference with President. Well I have some news for you guys. Aaron is going to get a new mission President too, and he is in the Omaha Nebraska mission. I don’t know if you knew that, but I thought that was cool.

Well things are going great. I am doing what President told me in an interview 2 weeks ago and that was to take good care of my comp. Well it sounds like you guys have had a good week. Hey and how is Toy Story 3? Well I love you guys so much thanks for everything that you do. Um grande abraço e beijo.

Well my comp was not feeling good so that is why I am emailing later. Ya I watched the World Cup and Portugal beat North Coreia 7 to 0. Well things are going good. Tell Matt to check his email. A member sent him a Birthday email. Hey and what wii game and Jersey did he get?

Well we are teaching some people. There is a kid about 18 that we are teaching and some others. Nope not yet, some we need to get them to stop smoking and have them get married, but things are going good.
Um grande abraço e beijo.

Feliz Anniversario!!

Hey everyone,
Well today we decided to go to the New Mall here in Ribeirão. It is really cool. They have a Walmart and I bought a doughnut, it was a chocolate creme filled. Hey and guess what they also have a Cinemark here. It is really big.

Hey that was a crazy US game. Well I am hoping that the US wins on Friday. Well the games are pretty exciting. The Germany and Australia was a blow out. That was crazy I really wanted Australia to win, but I knew Germany would take it. Oh well...
Well I think I am going to use the money for my B-day and buy some World Cup Jerseys. I am thinking about buying a US and Brazil one. So I will be using my card here soon.

Well I am loving my new comp Elder Busico. Guess what he is a twin too. His twin is in Italy right now. Hey loves to travel all over. His dad works for the Airport so he gets free flights, lucky. Well he loves D-land too. We just really click together. Well he is doing better.

Oh guess what on Friday I had a dream in Portugese. It was pretty cool. It is my second one here on the mish. The first in the CTM and now. It was pretty cool

Hey the computer that I am using does not have a USB port available so no pics this week, sorry.

Well the interview with President was really good. I found out why he is going home. He said that he has a problem with his stomach, like it is eating itself, he does not sleep and he is just really home sick. I thought that is just too bad. Well I am hoping that he can just get better, because I really love President Vieira. He is just so awesome. I am really going to miss him, and sister.

Well the family that I met this past week. Well the dad is from the US. His name is Bob. He is really funny. Hey reminds me a lot of Grandpa Shelley, stories and joking around. Well he is not a member, but he has been going to church for a while, so we will see. Well he lived in Indiana then moved to Louisiana working on a farm. Then he moved to Italy for 20 years doing farming and pigs. Then he moved to Brazil and has been here for 20 years. It is pretty cool. Hey tells us all about the basketball and is just fun talking with him. Well things are going really well here. My area is a little hard because it is the richest in the mission. Well we are trying our best. Well have a good time at the concert and have a good week. Oh and Matt HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Feliz Anniversario!!!!!!!!!! Well love you guys. Um grande abraço e beijo.
