Elder Tyler Fullmer – Beans, beans, the magical fruit

Ok so im trying more pics I don’t know why it didn’t work.  Anyway, this week has gone ok. We have a baptismal date for the 4th but……….she didn’t come to church so now we have to push it back. I mean she prayed about the Book of Mormon and said she saw a ball of light and heard that the church was true, I mean how much more does she need.  Except she does have a coffee problem. So there’s her, and we had three other investigators  at church and the mom of the two daughters met her old bible study friend who is now the wife of the 1st counselor in the stake presidency, so that was a blessing. Who knows what will happen with that, but we can hope. The member seems like she knows what we need help wise, so that should be good.

I’m sure dad wouldn’t tell you I mean, come on its dad. He won’t tell you anything.

***I was telling him in my email that we now have to open the second overflow on Sunday’s to fit everyone and it seems like we should be splitting the ward, but that if Bill knows, he’s not saying  🙂  ***

I figured the pictures out so that’s helpful.  Yeah life is good here, but our area is huge. So big we can’t get to barely any of it. Food is great as always and I’m always eating beans haha.

Sorry about not getting the address to you, but we’re in the middle of some emergency transfers and I don’t know who’s going yet. This mission has had some problems with rules. So letters sent to the mission home I get not very often, but until things get figured out it’ll have to do.
Love,
Elder Fullmer

Elder Tyler Fullmer – Arrival at Criciúma

I got sent to Criciúma and its way nice here. I love it. I’m going to try to send pictures in a separate email. I haven’t had time to take some here, but I’ll send some I took from the CTM.

The only letters I’ve gotten here so far were ones that got sent to Provo after I left. They got sent on to the mission, not the CTM… haha… so I got a couple old ones and no packages have made it through yet.

I’m Really glad I did not get sent to Floripa. They call my Zone the pit, says my comp, but the area is one of the best in the mission. Sadly yes, my mission president is going to change in a couple of weeks, but he’s been good and the mission has been improving massively. He’s also close to having to shut his job down. It’s gone down the toilet since he’s been on his mission. So that’s kind of sad, but you can really see that they love the missionaries they work with. We’re all going to miss them.

Well I had my first lesson a couple days ago and not much to say there, because I didn’t say a word.  I had my First ward activity and that was way cool. Broke my shoes in playing soccer, and no shock, was being beaten by 12 year olds. We had some good old fashioned churasco(bbq) I hope that’s how you spell it.  It was way good.

We haven’t had too many investigators lately.   They, the previous elders(and my comp admits it), focused a little too much on four people that were close to baptism, and they were baptized.  We have been working hard to find new investigators though.

Yesterday was interesting. It was the 50th anniversary of the church here, so the two wards had a special meeting.  Oh there’s 2 areas and 6 missionaries( 4 elders in my area and 2 sisters in the rich part). It was cool, I didn’t get a whole lot out from it, but it was cool to see. Then we had lunch, which is a topic of interest.  We have very small breakfasts, huge lunches, and no dinner, but we have a snack at like 930 or 10pm when we get back. The members do a lot for us and we do eat a lot. They say we never eat dinner, but members feed us, or investigators feed us, so we do get a lot of food.   Its always really good.

So we taught a lesson to a inactive family. We got invited over for cake and my comp started in about the sacrifices of the early members in Criciúma and moved into Joseph Smith and the early members, and that temples are so important.  He put in a DVD clip from “The prophet of the restoration”, great movie, and at that point one of the daughters started getting teary and I knew I had to think of something and prayed for the spirit. Well, the movie got done and I know I’ve got to say something, so I break out D&C 124:135 I believe, where it mentions David Fullmer, and talked about the early church, our family, and temples. Which in and of itself is not crazy, but I was near tears, half the family was crying, and I didn’t stutter, I spoke correctly and without mistake. I can’t do it now and the only explanation was that the spirit gave me what I needed to say.

And so here I am on a computer in a lanhouse(an internet cafe without food) telling you that it’s all good here. I know I’m out doing God’s work no matter how many people look at me like I’m crazy.

I love you guys, I’ll email you next week, bye.

So he did send pictures, but in a weird nonformat.  Sooooooo…..still no pics.  I emailed back that he needs to send them again, but he needs to upload them in jpeg.  It’s killing me to have NO pictures.  Sigh!
