Andy's Mission Scripture

Andy's Mission Scripture:

"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

~Alma 29:9

We've had a rough time getting things to Andy...

We've sent two packages that got stuck in customs...they wanted $150 each if Andy picked them we had them sent back to us...then we re-packaged them in smaller little envelope things...apparently only one of those has arrived...hmmm...

Firstly i want to thank you guys immensely for the package i recieved! The package with a white shirt a journal the cd of evanescence that Edler Franco just died happy for...was his early birthday present his birthday is the 7th of september which happens to be independece day of Brasil and the memory cards and yugi oh cards which truly made the birthday of a boy named Matheus who is from that family i wrote to Dana about...We threw a big party for him and i did spend quite a bit for ice cream cake and balloons and hats...I gave two of the cards to Elder Franco as memory cards are ridicoulsly expensive here and he was needing more memory to take pictures and i did give that new white shirt to my companion elder Everton as he only had two shirts, i gave him two shirts in fact...I have a total of six shirts now which is great but i will end up giving another to Anderson a baptism of mine...Speaking of baptisms i recieved the greatest news EVER!!! you guys know the Jefferson (Goiaba is his nickname)  i bapized in Mossoró...He sent his mission papers a month ago and is waiting for his call now!!!!  i
serioulsy almost cried knowing this...made my anxiously waiting for everything that you guys have sent and praying that all arrives seems like the package i recieved took a month to arrive...My shoes are ending...the heels are falling going to need to buy some new ones...just letting you friend Elder Franco is needing new shoes as well...let me know if you guys will put more money into my account for shoes....Im doing great here, Im just trying to stay animated as im arriving in the hardest stage of the mission perserving these last 6 months....Aquercia a recent convert gave a talk yesterday for the first time in her life in church and she did so great! I so grateful for the gospel and the great freindships we make through it....I miss you guys a ton but i know im in the right place... Love you guys, have a great week...
