Birthday surprise!


Hey Family! Hope you guys had an amazing week!
So yeah I am here, training with Elder Richmond. He is from Blanding Utah, a small town south of Moab. He is a way good missionary. We are working in Caxias, Which is in between my first are of Iraj√° and my second of Saracuruna. I actually went to Saracuruna this past week to do a baptismal interview, and it was awesome to return after almost 8 months. Unfortunately we were barely able to work this week. My comp is having some serious knee pain and problems so we traveled a lot, going to Copacabana for an MRI and to other doctors. Hopefully we can have some results this week and figure out what to do. Besides that though, it looks like this is an awesome area. A ton more humble, but the people are awesome. The first counselor of our mission is our next door neighbor. When I got here on Tuesday I wasn´t going to do anything for my Bday cause it was transfers. We had a family night with some recent converts and President Mansano (The 1st counselor of the mission). At the end they brought out a birthday cake and starting singing happy birthday! Haha biggest surprise of my life!!!! My new comp had seen it was birthday on the mission site and told them the night before. Needless to say I was super happy and this is like my favorite ward now. 
Anyways no I haven´t gotten the package yet, but I should this week. Also I got a bunch of emails from friends too!
Well I hope you guys have a great week! The Church is true and I love it! Seriously in the middle of all the bad and difficult things happening in the world, we can find all the peace we need just looking toward Christ and His Gospel. There aren´t words to describe it. haha Love you all!!!
Love, 
Elder Ottosen
