Elder Passos making a face.
Stormy weather.
After the storm?
Little parrots.
View from Taylor's balcony--I think.

muh muh muh muh muh, muh muh muh muh muh muh MISSIONARIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well my friends on the other side of the PLANET! How is everything? Everything is good here, we actually did work!!!! Finally!

Yes I have a good comp! His name is Elder Passos, again, I said this already! But we worked. He only has one more month than me on the mission and we get along just great! He is from São Paulo, right next to the Temple in fact.

Ok I have pictures from the last little while! My camera is having problems so if I don't send a lot of pictures, that's why.

Everything is going well here. We baptized a little girl who is 9 and her name is Kristina. Her family is inactive, but we are working to get them back to Church. Her dad wants to stop drinking, and he is doing it! We have a couple of investigators that have problems with smoking, but we are working on some goals with them!

One lady is really liking it all and she wanted to get rid of some Catholic statues and pictures of her boyfriend, because he said they don't matter to him, so she felt like it was bad to have them in the house so she gave them to us!

Here in my area, it's very hilly. We walk a lot, one day, I think it was Thursday, everything fell and so we did contacts até o pó! I don´t know how to translate that! (Translator says "until the dust" so maybe until they went home?) I don't remember, honestly. So then we tried and tried to visit people and then at about 6, when you want to give up, everything goes right.

Man we have mountains here, it was cool to see that after 8 months! Yeah I've almost been here for 8 months now! Oh we have wild parrots here, they are little green ones.

Everything is going great--it's a little rainy today, but that's ok. I'm learning how to teach better and everything, the português is coming along great! Man, this is a good area! Everything is going great! Well that about sums it up.

So I am Elder Richardson, Keymaster, THE American in São João da Boa Vista, and I end mine epistle, amen.


  1. Things are going great, awesome!

  2. Love the "after the storm" picture. So happy for Taylor and his new companion. He sounds fantastic!
