Elder Tyler Fullmer – He’s wrong about the pizza

So teaching has been way sick. We found a really shickey familia to teach and their story is crazy. They lost their son and a year later the dad gets in a moto (motorcycle) accident and has been in bed rest for a year and a half (included is a 3 month coma) so crazy. They were a investigators suggestion and their a little out of the way but the mom loved our explanation of the plan of salvation and after the lesson of the restoration we got the other son and dad to accept baptism(no date yet). AS weve taught them ive been able to testify about things without knowing they had a question about it. So its been amazing the spirit is very strong when we go there. The mom still has questions but that’s what we are here for.

Rodisio is sick. whether your there for pizza or chorrasco(bbq) nothings better than all you can eat when the waiters bring you the food. So this week we got the pizza place for half price because we had recent converts who bought a promotion. So this week was the first time for pizza in brazil. So much better than home. Plus they bring around many different types of pizza so you’re not stuck with just one and can i say that who in america hasn’t thought of dessert pizza. Can I just say that white chocolate strawberry is the greatest pizza in the world. The sad part is that you don’t eat the crust. It takes too much room. I ate half of mine with the crust and did not have a whole lot of room left. The funny part was that every Brazilian goes through any meal with a knife and a fork, pizza included, so i looked like the one dork not eating that way but it was really funny cause instead of that the guy yells “this kid knows how to eat pizza you must be american” hahaha. Even my comp has been here long enough he doesn’t eat pizza with his hands.

Not much else we had a mission conference. Pres e sis. Queroiz are leaving in a couple of days so the transfer conference was a whole mission affair. So that was a whole lot of people we have around 140 people in the mission right now. It’s a good time to be a missionary. They have made a new mission website that’s gonna be way cool for when i get back home and i can use it all the way. It’s really just a way that sister queroiz can keep an eye on us haha she way funny.

Mail news – I do get your letters and I got the package you sent on june 2nd when we were at the conference which was really nice. My comp thinks the thinks you put in my packages are way cool. He gets a lot of food but not so many of the funny things you send so keep it up mommy. Not to be all ungrateful and stuff but I do need pictures. Everybodys getting a little annoyed with me that I just had those two magnets cause my comp has like 3 albums haha.

I’m getting so fat here mom I don’t know what to do haha and yes its still really cold. Its was cold then 2 weeks ago warm and sunny, last weeks warmish and rainy, now its way cold buts clear skies and really windy. Everybody is getting sick cause its changing so much here. People are talking possibility of snow. What the heck this is Brazil!

Anyways that’s way cool to hear that Connor loved that part of girls camp. It’s always really exciting getting into a house and teaching the people. Its even better because our president implemented a new technique well [actually] two. One is that we use a flippy (flip chart or pictures) so that when we teach people actually pay attention to us and that helps especially in the first vision. The coolest thing is the blessings we give to people. In Luke 10 it talks about the Seventy [who] were sent out and told to bless the houses they entered with peace, heal, and preach the gospel  [and] President wondered why we didn’t do that and how none of the missions he had been in did that, so [now] we do. The first time you go to a house most of the time we talk to them and then tell them about our authority (I have to get a line of authority mom please) and we ask them what they would ask of Christ and then we bless the house. I’ve seen miracles through this. Families literally brought together through this effort.

I want you guys to know i’ll be praying for you and grandpa. I know that all us (me included) wish we could lay our hands on him and heal him instantly. Which as i’ve learned and seen happens but under the Lord’s direction. I wish grandpa could have that same blessing, who knows maybe he will. The greatest gift on this earth is the fact that we have the power to lay our hands and call down the powers of heaven for people. The second is our temples. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve talked about temples with people and they have got wide eyed and asked how they can have that. Now a lot of them don’t follow up on the things that we need to do but I have no doubt in my mind whatever happens to grandpa we will be a family forever and we will have that because of those very temples that we have a hard times getting to. I miss going once a week, [it’s] hard knowing I won’t ever got again in Brazil. I love you guys this gospel is true and we will all be together if we follow our Heavenly Father’s laws. These laws only make us happier that is one thing that is very clear in Brazil. I love you guys and I hope your call does not come soon.

Love,
Elder Fullmer
