Hello Family and Friends,
This week was the last week that I had over in F*********. After six months in that city, I got transfered to a new area. So this last week was kind of weird. All of our appointments fell through and we only found one family to teach. We made some contacts before I left, but I'm not in the area anymore to find out what's going on.
So Friday and Saturday we helped a member move to a new house. Friday, we only did a little bit of work, but on Saturday we did a ton . . . it was all the huge stuff and putting together dressers and things like that. Here in Brazil houses usually don't have built-in closets, so they buy a bunch of stuff similar to what we Americans would find in IKEA. We finished everything, had lunch, and then we found out that I was going to be transfered to **********. This is on the northern part of the island of *************. Apparently the ward has an attendance of 180 members. That is a huge ward. And it also has a lot of beaches which now makes my mission look exactly like Hawaii. This is going to be difficult. But, it does have a subway and a lot of surf shops.
My new companion is Elder F******. He is from *****, Brazil, and he is pretty chill. I actually did a division with him last year so I kind of knew him before. So it is not so awkward (the transfer and everything). I am just curious about the members and what they are like. I won't get to know them much anyway since I will be leaving soon. They may not even remember me. But I will work hard.
Time is flying by fast and I am certain that this area will make it go faster since I already like it. I hope this week will go well. I hope the week goes well for you guys. I love you all.
Elder Kevin Brady
PS – About being a day late: Oh yeah about that, we had a crazy transfer schedule yesterday so I wasn't able to email. But everything is OK. Nothing to worry about over here.
