Off to the waterfalls!



Hey Family!
Wow it is school time already!!?? Good luck to Kade and Paige, should be a fun school year! haha So this week was pretty chill. Not a whole lot happened. Lucas got confirmed yesterday and he likes the church. I hope we can help him prepare to serve a mission that would be so cool. My email will be a little short because we are actually going to do something this pday. We are going to some waterfalls in our DL´s area. Should be awesome I hope. This next Saturday we have those free marriages, so this week we are going to be working a ton with anyone who qualifies for it, and hopefully have a few baptisms next week. That is a cool story about Romney! Just goes to show that show much depends on our attitude and how we take things. The gospel always helps us to have a better outlook on life and the future. In fact yesterday we were teaching a family. Just 20 days ago two of their sons were murdered at their door.  I imagine it must be horrible either way. But with the gospel you have the hope of happiness and peace, and an opportunity to see your loved ones again. Without the gospel everything looks so bleak. Unfortunately we lost some good investigators last week. They all decided to stop investigating the church, because of pressure from family members and friends, but we continue working and hopefully they will have their chance down the road. 
I am glad you guys got the package this time!! Sorry it didn´t have a ton of things, maybe for Christmas I will find more things to send. haha. But that is cool you talked to Joe, how is everyone at home?
For sure you should send me pics of everyone. haha Those caves in the picture were at a park we went to back in Iraj√°. The park is called Quinta da Boa Vista, if you want to look it up. It was way cool and had a museum and zoo, both closed on Monday. :( haha
Kory should be getting home soon! You will have to go to his homecoming and tell him hi for me. haha . 
So that is also way cool with the temple walk! For sure send me some pics. 
Thank you a million billion for the love, the advice and comforting works. I love you all so much and can´t wait to see you again, but I am so happy to be a missionary and to help others. Love you guys! 
Elder Connor Ottosen
