This Just In...

Hard Week...

Very Rewarding...

Gave Talk In Sacrament Meeting...

Need more money... I just need to buy a few more things.

These past 3 weeks have been the hardest of my mission...

Do you think that the hour layover in SLC will be enough time to see people who go to the airport?

I really don’t know what to say... let’s just say that I’m super nervous... WOW... it’s coming up fast.

IM FREAKED OUT FOR THE FUTURE... I really don’t know what’s going to happen...

But the work rolls on... we laugh we live and we(as most missionaries in Brazil do)WALK!

Yesterday we had a really good lesson with a kid named Tiago... it was good... he recently got back from Haiti. Brazil is on an U.N. Peacekeeping trip there. The whole Earthquake thing has hit pretty hard down here. It was a really good lesson he has a lot of potential to be baptized... too bad I won’t be here to see it. You see the have to get married.

But yeah... it was good last week...


That’s awesome... 2 Stakes in Santa Maria.

But that’s my life... pray for me to be focused these last couple weeks... LOVE YOU!

Elder Jed Breinholt

você está Trunkie?!?!?!? (Are You Trunkie?)

Well it appears that the head wound required a few stitches, his first ever!
Also about my head... remember how I hit it...well just look at the attached picture. I'm fine but let's just say that recently it has not been an awesome thing for me.
Wow what a rush...

OK so this week has been ok... just a few experiences...

Monday to Tuesday Ipuked my guts out. I got food poisoning for the first time in my life, in the mission, but I'm totally better now!!!

About the work. Let's just say its going slow.

This week we had a pretty good experience. The testimony of an investigator is gold. We had a lady, Rosi, that we were teaching the Restoration to and at the end we invited her to pray. She said, "I don't need to pray I already know what your saying is true." It was probably the best experience of the week.

It's been a really cool experience coming back to one of the same areas where I already passed. Because you go back to old investigators houses. We were doing that with a family I taught here, a lady named Katrina and her son Mateus, it's going good.

The other photo is all the kids from Davis County in the mission... DCC Davis County Crew!

You All Trunkie?

But love you all and I want you to know I'm praying for you!

I Live...

I spoke too soon. This is what we got from Jed this afternoon.

Dear Family,

This past week has been really good.

Pres. told me to write you guys. So I'm just writing you really quick to let you know that I'm alive...

Time is passing by so fast I can't believe I only have 5 weeks left!

I love you all and talk to you later

I promise you next week I'll write on time

This week we had a counsel with all the mission leaders that took too much time!

You'll get some photos as well next e-mail.

Elder Jed Breinholt

No e-mail Monday

No e-mail yesterday. We did get an e-mail from President Myhrra that Jed has been made the District Leader.

We are 1 month 5 days away! WOW! We haven't received his travel plans yet. There is a possibility that he will come through SLC. If he does we will let you know if he has a lay-over and those of you in SLC may want to go to the airport and say hi.

He will be speaking here in our ward on Sunday, February 21 at 9:00 a.m. Anyone who wants to come on up to Gillette is more than welcome we would love to have you!
