11 May 2015

It was a lot of fun to talk to you guys as well! Its weird to think that in 7 weeks I´ll be coming home! He got his tooth pulled but they left a bone fragment there? Thats not too good. I hopefully dono´t have to do anything like that! When do the plants start giving strawberrys and raspberrys? It in the summer or fall, will they even have fruits this year?  Thats cool though! Here they don´t have either one of those two fruits.  I think that you might be able to find strawberrys in Manaus, but they would be extremely expensive.  Pipes have a tendency to clog up here as well :) I have to a story to tell you all when I get home about unclogging a pipe in Itacoatiara.
  This week was pretty good here though  Monday was the normal pday.  Nothing super extravagent. tuesday was working in the are for a little bit, but 5:00pm we returned home grabbed our bags and headed off to catch the bus to Manaus.  Really cool moment of that trip was crossing the Rio Negro bridge into Manaus and looking off over to the side and seeing the Angel Moroni on top of the temple as we crossed over.  We got to stay the night with the Elders of Tapajos, and then the next day we headed to our Interview with Pres. Castro.  He left us with a brief message on the importance of obedience and then started the interviews. While he was interviewing, Sister Castro talked with us about the importance of inviting people and how we can do that even better in our daily work as missionaries. It was pretty cool. My interview with Pres. Castro was quick but it was good.  After the interview, we ate a quick lunch with the elder of Compensa 2 and then caught the bus back to Manacapuru.  The rest of the week was pretty normal.  Friday night we got our reward dinner for answering 3 riddles that the Elders quorum president gave us and we managed to answer. I´ll give one of them to you right now.  After going and getting honey from a few beehives, you and your friend are walking down a path and come to a fork in the path, you need to go one way and he the other, so you decide to divide up the honey.  You have  5 liters of honey in total, but only pitchers  5 liters, 3.5 liters and 1.5 liters.  How do you divide up the honey? If you can get figure it out, send me back the answer :) (No using the internet). Saturday night the ward had an activity for the mothers in the ward that was pretty cool. A bunch of people sang and it was nice.  Sunday we got to call home and that was awsome! Most of this week will be spent in Manaus since Elder Jesus is going home now after completing his mission while he does his interviews and everything. It´ll be cool though! 
  I hope that you all have a great week this week!  I miss you all! Have a great week!
