Dang Girl!!

Dang, Girl!!

Mom. I love you. You make me smile. This week one night I was just sitting in bed and I went to bed kinda early and I just started singing songs like that; the one about the clouds. Aah, very refreshing.

K, all I have to say is I’m am a dang proud brother right now; like holy freak my sister was lookin’ FINE at prom. I was like, che girl! Like whoa!

Dad, thanks for the pics of Costa Rica! Haha that one with the pole in the middle of the road was funny. I’ll have to send you guys some pics of Angolan roads sometime. Always traffic. Like always. Takes forever to get to places.

This week was a heck of a lot better than last week. Like, a million times better! Work work work and life is good. So we got this new investigator who literally looks like Usher. Like legitly. It was crazy! He is so sick. He speaks English and he’s pretty familiar with the church already from other countries. Can you say fastest baptism ever? Haha, but they guy is super cool. Gives us rides and everything. Oh haha, I have to tell you a funny story. So he lives with his cousin and we went to the house and he was outside washing something and he’s like just go inside. Okay. Go in. No one’s there. Cool, but the tv’s on. It was some American cable channel. And the room is so small that like the tv’s right in front of you and you can’t do anything about it. Haha, so this show was in English and it was like a super cheap set with like skanky women and one ugly looking guy and I just start thinking to myself " oh crap. Like this is a freaking porno! shoot shoot shoot!" and I’m like Elder Brown, what the freak is this, and he’s like idk dude what the freak. And oh my gosh this was just going on and then Usher came in and he just ignored us and the tv while he went into his room to get something and I’m just like oh this is not good! Well, luckily it wasn’t porno Haha. Just some stupid California Hollywood show and he turned it off right after.
Haha but man I was so scared. Haha the mission man. crap happens. hahaha

On Saturday, I had a division with Elder Chandler and holy cow, my mind was blown! Such a good missionary. I learned sooo much. Just new techniques to teach to contact and to just talk with people. It was really good for me. Elder Chandler is really cool. He just talks to people like a normal person and just gets to know them and then works in the missionary stuff and integrates it into the conversation and how it can help them personally with such and such. Like, it was awesome. Then, on Sunday we watched General Conference finally. We had to wait for the church to send us discs. It was good. Little hard to concentrate when it’s in Portuguese. It was cool to get a mission shoutout from an apostle. Haha, the pictures that they showed, I was like, wait a second, I remember when President Kretly had a Zone conference with us about that in February and showed us those pictures. It was cool.

My language skills have been going through the roof lately. I’m getting pretty darn good. A lot of the Elders are amazed. (If I do say so myself, haha!) Elder Chandler at the end of our division was like, “Man your language skills blew me away today! I couldn’t do that when I was in your position!” The Lord is truly helping me.

So Rita’s not getting baptized this week anymore. I’m kinda ticked about it. I wish I was in the area again to work with her. But her daughters Gizella and Telma are getting baptized this week. I’m stoked about that. They’re rocks in the church. Telma especially. I still remember the time when she told us how she got a testimony of the Book of Mormon and I almost cried.

Hmm, what else happened this week... lots of contacting. Lots of weird people. Haha, people telling us that because we have pictures of Christ we’re breaking one of the ten commandments. Angolans man... think they know the scrips. Obviously, they have a little bit of a learning handicap. I mean look at the country. haha before the war, things were a lot nicer here. The Portuguese actually had this place running pretty well. OH! someone broke into our house this week. That was kinda cool. It was in the middle of the night so we all got up. The guy took off. Probably freaked cause 6 Americans were about to be on top of him!

Oh, I got a letter from Troy this week! Woo! Thanks man. I love your family. and Anna is so cute. I bet its fun to be a dad!

I can’t believe you guys only have 3 weeks of school left. What the heck! And, I hit my 6 month mark in two weeks. Weird. Well, I love you guys. Sorry, my email last week was horrible. It was a bad day. Mom make sure you keep that country music for when I get home. ahhh I miss it with a passion. That is my addiction of choice and it’s a good one to have haha. You guys rock! Keep up the obedience and the blessing will come! Love you all!
