Transfer week has happened... and a bunch of big
news with that! We're opening 3 new areas here in Luanda! One new area
in the existing Viana branch, and 2 new areas in the brand new Benfica
branch!!! WOOOOO!!!! Plus, I get a companion! His name is Elder Kelsey.
He's one of the older guys, and is actually in the next group to go
home. He's enlisted in the marines, and is pretty hilarious. It'll be
interesting though, because the area that we're in is the area that he
used to work before he left for the provenance. I'm excited though. I
can't wait to do some major work with him though!
Other than that, the week has been pretty quiet. I didn't have too
many lessons, but of the ones that I did have, they were all extra super
spiritually powerful! I'll tell you what, faith is awesome!
birthday went well. Thank you all for your birthday wishes, and my
present! I loved it! I kept my birthday pretty quiet from everyone. Very
few people actually knew that it happened. Next year though, I'm going
to voice it from the roof tops, because Elder Tolman says that you get a
TON of stuff from members that way. »:) haha But I loved my birthday
card, and the muffins tasted great! I'm excited for Christmas!!
I have a couple of ideas of what I want Owen to have for Christmas...
I'll send them in a separate email though. Mwahahahaha!!!
is HOT here! When it rains, the humidity sky rockets, and it rains
about every 2 or 3 days! It's getting super hot. I'll have to listen to
the radios in taxis to get a temperature for you all, but it's going to
That Christmas card looks pretty good! Hahaha. Can't wait to talk in a few weeks!
I love you all a TON! Let me know if my letters get to ya, I sent 2 or 3
your way about a month ago. As for packages, I wouldn't worry too much
about them. I think most other people just pay through the nose to send
them, so if you do send anything, just send a small one under 2.2 lbs,
and I'll be happy to get it. I'll ask around to see if there's a cheaper
way, but if not, don't worry about it. Just send me a million
I love you all a bunch! I'm doing well here, and I'm pretty sure this next transfer is going to rock socks!!!
Love, love, love!!
