I am doing well, but sadly the baptisms fell though yesterday in our zone. We had a great work week, but a bunch of last second problems happened and everything fell, including some people coming to church. Satan worked hard this week. I did have two investigators at church, although we were expecting a lot more. We will work for a better week this week. Anyways, all is well. I wish that I really only had to think in one thing, but being a zone leader sometimes seems like it is taking away my focus on where I would like it to be, with my investigators, but I cannot complain because I know that I am were God wants me to be and helping missionaries is part of my personal mission. Thanks for your kind words and support, it really helps. I got pics from Jackson. It is kind of funny to think that he is in the Bahamas and I am in the middle of nowhere. But this mission is the same. I sure love the mission. I am not sure that I am ready to come home. If I asked to stay another transfer, would you mind? I know that some other missionaries have asked and they did not let them. Who knows though? This week I have been doing a lot of exercises so I am hoping not to come home fat. Good thing that I am in a mission were we have to walk in burning heat every day. I think that I sweat about 7 lbs. every day. It has been hot these days, but then again, it is always hot. I am use to it though. I think coming home will be a temp shock for sure. This week I taught an English class of a member who works at an English school. I went with E Grantham, who has 3 months in Brazil. They said that it was a lot easier to understand me, but I do not think that that is because my English is better. I think that it is because I have to talk slower to translate from port to English in my head and because I say things in English the way that they should be said in port. I think that all of you would understand E Grantham better, hahaha. I think that I am getting better though because living with two Americans, we talk English every once in a while. Anyways, I really do not know what else to tell you about this week. It is getting harder and harder to remember what was this week and last week and today and yesterday. It is all just a blur. I love you all and thanks for the Halloween card. It was awesome. Here is Brazil they do not really celebrate Halloween, but as the Brazilian culture is to party, there are always some places that do a Halloween party and dance. Have a great week!!!
Love, Elder Lee
