My Birthday

Hey everyone!
So this week went super fast once again, especially being conference week!! This past mondey while working in our area we passed by a church called asamblea de dios, which means assembly of god, and the funny thing was they were actually singing on of our church hymns! We were heading towards an investigater who was progressing but turns out when we knocked her door she fled from the living room into the kitchen, seeing through the glass door, and sent her mom to answer the door and tell us she wasn´t home, we going through that and listening to excuses like two or three times a week. The worse part was that she was one of our progressing investigaters. This week was also my big 21st b day, i had a really good day, enjoyed my self somewhat and we also had a really good day working. I still don´t feel like im 21 or even that i have to much time in the mission. Oh and big news for brasil the 2016 olympics will be in here in rio de janero, everyone here is going crazy.. even my companion and i cause brazil is just awesome! As far as conference when we didn´t have any investigaters come to see the stake center is actually really far away (in another country) and we even had problems with some of the members getting there on time. But i would have to say that holland gave an amazing talk, he just calls my attention so much when he talks so strongly that i become so interested that i dont even bother to take notes. As well i love how richard g scott loaths pornography and teaches it so well, im really excited for the ensign in november. This week went fast for a lot of reasons but mostly because we´re trying to work hard, this full week we´ll have to work even harder though. The head is turning up too, we´re still doing good but im sure it will get to a point where we might have to stay in all the afternoon! Love elder chase parkAnd yes i didn´t wait to open my present, i just don´t have the self discipline and you´re way to smart mom! Oh yeah and for my birthday i had cake smashed in my face! First time ever in my life! I didn´t really like it

Guess Where I am

In Brazil

This past week went really awesome, for the preperation day we went to our area where on a hill it has a big statue of a Christ! It´s was sweet to see our entire area too while being up ontop of the hill. This past week went really well with our investigaters we have a family and another sister who we are teaching who are progressing a ton. The family is already finding alot of questions and doubts through the book of mormon and this Sunday they went to church, as well we have another sister who has been reading the book of mormon like crazy too and we went to teach her the plan of salvation, she practically already knew it and was teaching us.. all three of them are being prepared to be baptized on halloween!! It´s going to be awesome.. this past week was pretty hot though, right now the coulds are covering the sun and the wind gives a cool breeze but later on in the week it´s going to heat up again like it always does. Funny story.. my companion and i met an old guy who was about 86 years old. He was talking to us about how strong he was, and show it he punched my companion in the arm by surprise… it looked pretty hard. So my companion was kinda angry then the old guy said to grab his leg to see feel his muscle. But the thing is grab in portuguese means to punch in spanish and my companion with an already angry mind undertood punch my leg… to which he did and the old guy starts freaking out.. it was actually hilarious in the moment. But all is still well here in brazil, im going good still learing portugues right now it´s not very hard at all.. and thanks mom for the money, i went and bought myself a soccer jersey and probably will buy another scrupture case too. And the pants do fit me thanks again. And no i wont be able to go to rio because it´s actually another mission.. the area that i work in is about four hours away from the nearest stake. But im still doing great and am excited for halloween and november and to get this year over with.
Love you all a tone
