This week went a little better! We had a division on Tuesday after our Zone Meeting and it went smoothly. We did a little bit of running around and taking care of things the better part of the week. But not too much. On Wednesday morning, we had a surprise meeting with the district and zone leaders here in Teresina. It was just in the morning so that was good. It was a good meeting that helped us as leaders know how to better lead and guide our districts and zones in a more effective way. We were able to receive instructions from President Melo and his assistants. We also ended up going to the doctor a couple of times because my comp isn't feeling all that well lately. So we went to the doc to see what's going on with him. He went and the took some blood to do some tests and we will be going back to the doc on Wednesday to see what is going on. We have been after new people to teach as well, but that too hasn't been too successful. We found only one new investigator this week. Even though we work hard and all, we just aren't having the success that we would like to. In spite of all the trouble, we were able to have 7 investigators in sacrament meeting yesterday! I was really surprised to see some of the people there that went, but they went! So we will work a little more with those people to see what happens with them!

As to the food on Sunday, I really liked what we did when I was leaving! (the cafe rio food) I also had a special request for a family dinner! The classic pot roast (took me a while to remember the name) with mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans! Oh how I love that dinner!!! Glad to hear that the activity went well and that a lot of people went! We are also starting to put on some activities here in the ward that I´m in and it´s going good! That´s one thing that really lacks here is activities with a good attendance. Not so glad to hear about Carter.

Do you know if Conner and Renee have anything planned for their summer break? Or just relaxing? I'm also guessing that Conner will continue working? I can imagine that 3 straight semesters with work is pretty stressful. But glad to hear that it all worked out! Hopefully they´ll take some time to do some temple work as well! Good luck to me! At least in the beginning I won´t have a wife yet. So I´ll be able to get settled in better. All will work out as it is supposed to! Maybe not as smoothly or easily as we would like, but it will all work out!

Have a great week! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
