Everything is just so awesome here. I'm not sure that
I deserve to be this happy! (Strangely, it turns out that you can be
happy without electricity... or water... or money... or a clean house)
But seriously, this week has been awesome. We've got 2 people set up to
be baptized on the 6 of October. S N and I are finally
being baptized. We are very very excited for them. I hope I can get you
all some pics, but everytime I try to send any, I get a return email
saying that your domain didn't accept it because it was too large. So, I
may have to send pics one at a time... Oh well!
So things, like I said, rock! We've been doing a lot of work, having a
lot of fun, and I think our house is slowly getting better. Today for
Pday, we went to a praça called the Bem-fica art fair. I got some
AWESOME stuff there. Finally some legit African souvineers. What did I
get? Well, I'll just surprise you all when I come home. ;) But I had a
lot of fun bartering the people down from the ''white'' price to the
''fair'' price. I think I got some good deals.
But other than that, I don't have much to report on. We've taught
lessons, met a ton of new people and are just working with them all.
Elder Hyde is almost done training, just 4 weeks left! Wow! That time
sure went by fast. Time is crazy here. It's like each day is forever,
but when you wake up the next day, the month is done! For example, when
we talk at Christmas, I'll be at nearly a year! WHAT!?! That is crazy to
But enough about me, tell me about you all: I like the laundry
make-up routine. It made me laugh. Also, mice? There's not much to do
but poison EVERYTHING under there. We had a mice problem at my last
house, and it was because we had a rat the size of a beaver leading the
army. We left before the next Elders finally killed who we called ''Big
Ben''. But that's how we took care of that.
Thanks to Luxana! I always love her pictures!
Where's Owen? I
like never hear from ya more bro! What's up at school? Is sandcreek
doing well in Futbol Americano? Who's the latest shammy? Write me bro!
Since when did Chris start doing law enforcement which involves macing? That through me off this week!
Weston, I don't have anything for ya this week, but when I do, I promise that I'll let ya know. ;)
I love you all lots, and I hope that everything is going well. It
looks like 1 or 2 pics will attach and send to ya, so I'll get a bunch
from last week off to y'all. I love you, miss you, pray for you, and
I'll see you in like 15 months or something like that. Love,
Elder Alex Hobbs
