Sao Paulo Temple

São Paulo Temple

well this last week has been crazy go nuts...we went proselyting on friday...i was scared out of my mind, willardson did everything...we do it again on friday...hopefully i´ll be we went to the são paulo was beautiful...really it was. mail was on strike yesterday and this morning...its weird...i haven´t got my package yet but i might soon..."

Many of you have heard about our little accident coming home from Utah last Sunday. This was Jed's response to that:
"HOLY CRAP! THAT IS SO CRAZY!!! i´m glad that everyone is alright...i want you to know that i prayed for your safety like crazy...i´m so thankful to the Lord for His protection of my loved ones..."

Jed answers our questions. He is really good at it. He just cuts & pastes our questions to his e-mail then answers them. However, that is mostly what his e-mail is. If we didn't ask questions his e-mail would be less than a paragraph! I think next week I won't ask any questions and see how long it is. Here are some of the answers to our questions:
"What are you doing for exercise in the CTM? running...spinning...some stuff like that
What are your Sundays like both in schedule and feelings of the day? sundays are a very nice day...we have sacrament meeting and regular like church. then alot of freetime...its nice we also get to see a "film" mostly they are old devotionals from the provo mtc...but they're good.
What will you do for General Conference? Will they broadcast it in the CTM for you? yes they will...we get everything in english...priesthood will be on sunday morning...i am so excited! "

Thanks for stopping by the Jed Blog!

There were prayers for your safety from all over the world!!! There is NO question that you all were watched over. Love those missionaries! I'm grateful Jed is serving; having a missionary out blesses many but especially the family supporting him/her.

I remember the first time I went proselyting in Brasil - I had just arrived in my first area (hadn't even unpacked my bags) - it was so hot and I was a strange combination of jet-lagged and nervous (in my defence, I had just arrived in the country, and I had been lost for most of that day trying to get from the mission home to my first area - the bus driver let me off at the wrong stop and I had to use my pretty pathetic Portuguese, and the Spirit, to get to the right one). But the Brazilians are the most wonderful people in the world, so there's nothing to be worried about.

I also love the Sao Paulo temple. It's this wonderful oasis in the middle of a very large, very loud, very congested (but very wonderful, very magicial) city.

Your friends in London haven't heard about this accident. I hope everyone is okay.

I'm so excited for Jed. He's going to have a wonderful experience in Brazil. (This is Luke, BTW).
