Well this week was rough for the Brazilian soccer fans. There was a huge loss on Tuesday to Germany and we weren’t even allowed to leave our apartment afterwards.

We had a way fun p-day though! We went to the Monteiros's house to play around a little. Leonardo Monteiro is an 18 year old in our ward that does visits with us every week. He’s awesome. He’s going to serve his mission in Boston starting in October. He invited us over to his house which has lots of fun things. We played on the slack line a little, went down a huge slide, played soccer barefoot on a grassy field and then played some ping pong. After, they gave us cake and ice cream. It was a super relaxing day.
The gospel really makes a difference though. I’ve seen so many times the way that living the commandments and doing the right things can make changes for these people. The Book of Mormon changes the lives of those who read it. There is a recent convert in our ward who could never find peace in her life because her family was always being torn apart by drugs and other bad influences. She now finds peace in sacrament meeting and praying and serving her family members.
I love you and am so grateful to have such a great family.
