Mais uma semana só de quebras no lan house

We received this email today...

Hey everyone! 

Don´t have much time so this email will be a short one! But just wanted to say that general conference this week was really good! I loved all of the talks! 

I´m still loving life out here in Manacapuru, now with my new parceirão Élder Matthew. It´s the first time I´m with an american companion and so far it´s been a great first week. HECK YEAH, AMERICA!!!  WHOOO AMERICA!!!! 

This week was a challenge because everyone in the city had to vote for the city governor, and here in brasil if you don´t vote you get fined. So, the day everyone had to vote just happened to be a sunday, the day of going to church. So yeah, that was a little difficult, but it was a great week nonetheless. Politics in brazil is super funny because every day for the past few months there have been cars driving on the streets with HUGE HUGE HUGE speakers attached like trailers to the back of them, blasting political jingles and parodies of modern popular brasilian music that sing about political candidates. They would pass on the streets all day every single day. So saturday and sunday the whole city went crazy with blasting music, parades and fireworks. But i think it is all over now. I think. 

Sorry I left my camera in our house this week (que burro) so next week I´ll send pictures!

Falou!! Bye!

Élder Olivier
