hello everyone,

so this week went great cause there was a baptism this week heck yes! We baptized maria do carmo which was awesome. This week was good cause we ran into a bunch of gold investigators with only minor problems. There is this one kid who is the nephew of maria do carmo and he is good to go and baptize, we just got to get him to church. So the baptism went real good we threw this fiesta afterwards and she loved it. We also spent so much money on it too i only have 50 reis until probably next p-day or something. but the money is not the big problem, were going good as long as the miracles keep on coming along. So yesterday i went on splits with another missionary and it was tough. i only got a couple of lessons, and because of yesterday now i know how hard it is to be a senior companion. but I'm ready. Yesterday it stormed like crazy during a lesson and it was windy and it even started to hail it was crazy. The aftermath was nuts too you just see all these trees ripped out these stores all broked, buses broken, all the lights were out. So when this happened we left. It was a bit funny cause we could not see but everyone could see us(because of our white shirts) so we just went home. the week went well and we might baptize some kids this week too yesssss! awesome week
love, elder rodriguez

well hello everyone,

I'm doing terrific not only because of conference but because i got the packages. it was awesome to have them finally and i got a butt load of candy which is awesome. grandma got the camera and dad got the package of the shirt and the beef jerky and the pen drive and Annie Anne(Aunt DeAnn) thanks for the candy. nice! So conference was Good and i was not really paying attention because i just wanted my packages so i eventually got them which was cool. i also got a boatload of cards too which i will reply too to. The week has been cruising smoothly and guess what? we are going to baptise that 65 year old lady this week. that is not it, the other missionaries are going to baptize too which will be cool. This whole week we have ben keeping on top of that lady so the devil wont have a chance on her, and so far it has been working. Yesterday i said hi to a lady and she yelled at me!! man, sometimes there are just weird people here in Brazil. but you know a mission would not be a mission without these things ha ha. the weeks have been pretty hot and one night a car almost hit me again but I'm fine. with my cat like reflexes nothing can touch this hahaha. so it has been going good here an I will try to send some pics to you.

love Elder Rodriguez
