The World Cup or apostasy?

How do I even begin to describe the world cup? I cant remember if it was Ays or Sag that asked me when i come back if i will be obsessed with soccer. well ill be honest, my feelings about soccer still havent changed much... what sport ends in a tie?! 

I am however getting more of some brasil pride. you all would not believe how psyco people are here about the world cup. EVERYTHING is green, yellow and blue. during the first brasil game there was NO ONE in the streets and everything is closed. its just one big party.

we had a noite familiar with an interesting family. with that being said it was one of the most spiritual experiences of my life. this guy, Andre invited everyone he knew to hear about the gospel. he is handicapped and im not sure exactly what problems he has but it was made very clear to all us missionaries that he is one of gods powerful leaders. he has a body that doesnt function but yet he is doing more to build up the kingdom than like anyone else. it was incredible to see and be a part of. 

food: ive been really into making fry bread lately, ya know gotta keep my native heritage alive. i have attempted making red mac but they dont have tomato juice, just tomato sauce, i have tried everything to make it like normal but it just doesnt taste the same... also just so you all know i have eaten literally every part of a cow. they make this stew that normally is just the cow foot (how you can eat a foot i still dont know) but when we got there we could tell there was definitely some other crap in that stew. but we were smart and waited until after to ask. yeah found out we ate the stomach and all the intestines too... lovely. 

the first day of the world cup was fun because we got all dressed up in the colors of brasil but we werent able to teach anyone that day, we just had a noite familiar after that was sweet... all about the world cup we turned it into a giant soccer game, i dont know how to explain it but it was a hit. 

our activity that we had in the chuch this week (we do one each week) was a treasure hunt with scriptures, it was so funny. the end was the scripture knock and it shall be opened ask and ye shall recieve. so everyone is running around checking all the doors for the treasure and about ten minutes later bianca (my first baptism here) was thinking really hard and just asked us for the treasure..... ding ding ding. winner winner chicken dinner. 

my comp and i are still good. most likely i will be transfered in two weeks though, so thats really really sad for me to think about. i will miss this area and my companion. have i told you all that my comp is shelby to a T? she even sold marykay before the mish and is always hookin me up. she literally is bertus. i remember when she first came here she was super serious but now thats over. yes, everyone just imagine being companions with shelby... its like the most exhausting thing with all of her energy but its great, and everything has to be pink and she always has a story to tell me about her life, and she never shuts up hahaha, i told ya she was shelby. 

mom i got your package today, im slamming the rolos right now like mad. my comp is obsessed too because they dont have them here.  also right now in the place that we email they have aerosmith blasting in my ears... life is good haha. 

i got grams C letter... thank you!
also i got the package from shelby.... thank you! seriously i have been wanting CTR rings to give to people soooo bad, this was perfect! 

An elder here gave me maple extract so i can make syrup now!
mom could you send me a recipe for bbq sauce and peanut butter please?

everyone wish me luck during this time of the world cup its super hard to teach people every house people are just glued to the tv... the world cup is a religion. if brasil had a game during church i would honestly be surprised if anyone came to church.

Lily still knows everything but still doesnt feel prepared to be baptized... what is this? nah its all good, God has his own timing. 

Well thats about it folks.

I didnt even know it was fathers day because its not celebrated here... but happy fathers dad! sorry i forgot!
