Dear Family and Friends,
I am always glad to hear that everything is going well back at home. And yes I enjoy all of your letters, both emails and handwritten. It's interesting to hear about the different weeks that people can have while all living in the same house.
This week was crazy. Tuesday we had to get up early to go to Florianopolis to pick up my new companion Elder C*****. Then we went back and had lunch, all three of us. We then returned again to F**** because Elder A****** had a meeting for those who will train. We got back at 7:30 PM and then headed over to a recent converts house. We got home late.
Wednesday, we didn't have much going on. The only thing different was that it was three of us doing everything instead of two of us. I am trying to recall exactly what it was, but it wasn't much. We had to go to the store to get more detergent and stuff.
Thursday we had to go to Florianopolis in the morning because Elder A****** had a leadership training meeting. Elder C***** and I went back home to have lunch and then we went back to Florianopolis to pick up Elder A******. As we were waiting, I saw my old companion Elder F******. He is leaving tomorrow and we caught up and talked about crazy mission stories and how we will hang out most likely after the mission. I also saw Elder B*******. We talked as well and caught up. It was good to see them again. Then we went home.
Friday we went back to Florianopolis in the morning to drop off Elder A***** so he could catch his bus. He had to go to the other side of the state. We then went home and started to live a normal missionary life of just two in a companionship rather than three. Later, we went to k**** to see the wedding of some of our investigators. We then had a Burger King and sea food wedding dinner. I did not eat any of the sea food and I am glad I didn't because my companion ended up having diarrhea and threw up. And people ask why I don't eat sea food...
So, it has been a very hectic week and not exactly productive but that is sometimes part of missionary's life. Sometimes there are just fast paced weeks of nothing. I am not complaining or anything. I thought it was fun to see all my friends again. Good times.
This week we will have a conference with President ******** (or something like that) who is in the presidency of the area of Brazil. I think the second quorum of the seventy. He will come over and talk to us. Not exactly sure about what but it will be exactly what our mission needs to hear. I am sure it will help a lot. I am excited to hear what he has to say.
The work is progressing here in ******** and will continue to progress. We plan on marking some baptismal dates with investigators for this month. I feel that we have found three investigators who really want to learn more about the gospel. We will work hard with them.
Thank you all for your letters and support. I love you all very much. Have a great week.
Elder Kevin Brady
