Sem Tempo (Translated is...Without Time!)

Wrote an e-mail but it got erased.

I don't have a lot of time this week, seeing as how I happen to be writing this e-mail from Presidents house. We are going to eat lunch here and we're going to go to Conference with him. It should be good.

I had to help them out a bit with their computer seeing as how I am the office tech. Totally just kidding but yeah I really am. Yesterday somebody asked me if I was an assistant and I said, "I was the Assistants to the Assistants and Secretary to the Secretaries." it was funny!

Ben is tall and uses saggy pants, silly Ben. (In response to a picture of Ben receiving his 1st class rank advancement in Scouts. And yes his pants looked a bit saggy! Bad Ben!!)

But anyway I love you all and hope you have an awesome Conference.

New Posts!

I've been out of town for a couple of Saturdays! Here are Jed's latest emails!



Dear Family,

We used the internet really early today because we’re going to climb a mountain. I'll take pictures for you all. So my p-day on Saturday has its positives and negatives...but overall it’s good.

There’s really not a lot of news to tell you all. On coming to get me Pres. said just send an e-mail to him telling him you want to pick me up, and after that contact church travel.

The office is going good. We are starting to get stuff ready for the changing of Mission Presidents. A LOT TO DO! Everything has to be registered that’s why we’re starting early because it’s a lot of stuff to do.

There’s a lot of new missionaries coming in this transfer, like 20! 18 Americans, it’s gonna be nuts! But it'll be good for the mission, open up a lot of areas. It will put 2 companionships in a lot of wards and branches. All three branches in Sao Borja will have 2 companionships. It’s not a really rare thing here in the mission, seeing that the areas are big and we're all on foot. It helps the unit a lot.

Office work is good. I decided I’m going to take a networking class when I get home, because it’s my weak point. I've been putting stuff on the network in the office. It’s been kinda hard. Elder Rossetti worked as a network specialist in a bank so he helps me.

But yeah I don’t really have all that much news today. Tonight we have a baptism, Juliana, a girl we’ve been teaching. It will be good. I love what I’m doing right now. Loving my area and loving my companions.

And I love you all...



Love you all

Saturday is a special day. It's the day that I have P-DAY!


Ok so here's what has been happening the last few weeks...

My Companion went home... he was super sick....

I'm now in the office which means Saturday p-days. I didn't write last week because there was no time. We went house hunting and had to clean ours. So I'm super sorry everybody.

The office is good...lots of work...but I like it. I actually feel accomplished at the end of the day. It's a lot easier to see what I've done. We still get to teach 3 hours every night and we're having really good success. We have a lot of good investigators. Here in the center it's a lot more difficult to knock doors, so we mainly work off of referrals. But I really like the branch like I said 2 weeks ago.

Stake Conference was good... There were a lot of people there...almost 1,000...(which is alot for Brazil (considering not many people have cars)) the Stake is going to split here this next year. That's cool!

i saw people from Sao Pedro...and Parque Pinhero.... it was good.

But I love you all and hope that you all are well.
Have fun on your cruise mom. (I did and that's why the posts are late)
I now know how dad feels at work. (Working with the computers in the office)
Lipe is a cool kid...the Bishops son in my last area. (He found Annie on Facebook)

But that's all I have for today. I hope Grandma gets better, and I hope that you all have a good Gaucho Day tomorrow! (state holiday) love you all!

Tchau from your Brazilian son....(That's right...I'm Brazilian)

Love you all!
