It’s another hot day... haha surprise! But the work down here goes on. We have been working a lot with the members down here; Wednesday we did a division so it was just me and a member... AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! haha I asked him how old he was he said 23... I dint believe him I thought he was like 17... maybe 18… turns out he is 23 haha. But anyway it was good; the Lord helped me and provided for me and him; we taught 4 lessons and got some new investigators so it was a good day all in all. Just a bit nerve-racking.
Yesterday we were riding the bus back from lunch and like the buses here have gates so you have to pay and then you pass through the gate. I was getting my money out not holding onto anything and we took this turn really fast, and I flew across the bus and almost fell into the lap of a woman and her baby... she just looked at me and the day went on... Elder Ferreira thought it was so funny ... and it was.

Last night we had a meeting... I don’t know what to call it; it was all the priesthood leaders in the ward and then the priests... I’m not familiar with a meeting like that but anyway it was fun, I was sitting there trying to figure out all the things that were going on... And I felt like I imagine the founding fathers felt when they were writing the Declaration of Independence; in a hot, crowded room, discussing things and not really getting anywhere... but it was only an hour; it ended very abruptly, someone said it has been an hour, every one stopped, said a prayer and left... it was strange... but we did set a date for an activity on the 10th of March where we are having a Chocolate night... I don’t know what that entails but I am guessing I will get to eat chocolate so I am all for it haha.
Life is good, the work is going on, and many prayers are being answered, so please keep me in them :) LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!
Love Elder Howe
