November 21 Uruguaiana

Hey everyone!

I think todays post is going to be pretty short. This past week has been pretty good, and it only exceeded 100 degrees for two days or so!  I am having a great time here in Uruguaiana, and have spent a lot of time in the Ipiranga area searching for people to teach! The members dont give us a lot of
referrals so we are subjected to roaming the streets finding those willing to hear our message. It´s not too bad though because I like street contacts and  knocking doors. (Or at least I do at the moment. Give
it a few months and that may change.) But as for now I am loving the missionary work. This week
has been anything but fruitful though. We lost a few investigators and baptismal dates. Notwithstanding that, I have high hopes for the coming week. I  honestly think that things will go swimmingly this week. (More on that later)

Whoever said that I wouldnt be eating a lot of meat on my mission was telling a bold
faced lie. Either that or they werent familiar with the Santa Maria mission and thus were lying in ignorance. But what I am essentially saying is that I have enjoyed my fair share of meat in the past week. It has been splendid. The people here really know how to cook. They also know how to force second and third helpings on me, no matter how hard I plead to the contrary.  I may have trouble staying ´´skinny´´ on this mission. But its all good because I have been running with Elder Bott the past few days to help him get back into shape for his track scholorship, and to keep me
from becoming twice the Dane I was when I enteredBrazil.

Theres a lot more to say, but not too much more time.  Also I grow weary of typing. I hope the best for
everyone, and if you have questions, comments, or concerns please send all letters to the following
address, and I will get back to you in a (relatively)timely manner:
