Another Christmas in Brasil

This Christmas marks the second and final Christmas that Elder Clark will spend in Brasil....
We got to talk with him and he is doing great and is excited to finish up his remaining seven months sharing the Gospel with as many people as possible.

As we talked with Elder Clark we told him how very cold it was here(single digits) and he proceeded to tell us that it was at least 150 degrees there and that he was sweating like no other!!  Merry Christmas to him(haha).  We pray that his last 7 months will be his best months in Brasil!!

I thought that before too much more time passes I better update Elder Clark's blog.....
At the end of November Chris was transfered to a new city - Guarabira.  He was very excited to move on and see a new area.  He had been in the same location for nine months.  He also has a new companion and his name is Elder Dorneles.  Chris says that they have a lot in common and that this will be one of the best companions he has had on the mission and that says a lot because he has loved most all of them....They are looking forward to this new area.  The area only has a branch, it is a very large area and there are three companionships working in the area.  They are hoping to grow the area enough to warrant the start of a "real" ward house, where as now they just meet in a rented space...
I can't tell you all how excited we are to get to talk to Chris in just two short weeks!!!!! This is Chris' final Christmas in Brazil.....remember, he would really love a letter. They live for mail~! Merry Christmas to you all~!
