Do they celebrate Halloween there? If so, is it the same or different from here? no. Halloween doesnt exist here but everyone knows what it is and everyone would like to have a Halloween but you know there isnt really a council that will be like "this year all of brazil will be celebrating Halloween." So theres that.
Are the soap and shampoo and toothpaste the same there? yes they have dove here and stuff and toothpaste is the same
Do they have a holiday like Thanksgiving there? no. Thanksgiving doesnt exist also because it is a holiday that the pilgrums in north america invented. If they were to have a thanksgiving it would be 22 of april because thats when they found brasil.
SOOOO IM BEING TRANSFERED!!! :((((( So I cried like a baby when we had our last family night in the D's house. Everyone did. It was supppper sad saying goodbye to a Family that means so much to me. And M was there and A also. It was probably the saddest moment of my misison yet. But we're here in their house again using the computer here and had lunch here and we'll probably pass here tomorrow morning also.
But saying goodbye to the D Family will be nothing compared to me saying goodbye to Elder M. I've lived with him for the last 3 transfers and he has been like a brother to me. He reminds me a lot like Josh and we just have this relationship where if he does something that annoys me or that I dont like and can tell him literally in the moment and he will give me a hug and apologize and it'll all be resolved. Its just a relationship where one isnt ever really mad at the other cause we just want the problems to be resolved so we can continue joking around and goofing off with each other. I dont know if I'll ever see him again but we have plans to build a hotel in Bahia so we'll see how that goes.
So im going to be transfered to the zona Juiz De Fora (again, Tres Rios was also in this zone) in the area of Jardim America 2. I will also have the responsibility of being secretary of references where if people make a contact with someone in a different area they will call me and ill write down the address and pass it to the right person. I'll study and work in the office starting at 8 and ending at 2ish where ill go to work. I will live with the assistances to the presidente and the other secretaries (2 other people). So our house is the biggest in the mission and the area is super big and the members are strong there. Mainly because its the presidente's ward... haha so im excited. butttt yeah that was about my week. I love you guys!! I miss you all alot! Love,Elder Hamm
