Oi Familia!
Faz tempo:) It was good to see all of you too. You guys didn´t talk too much though.haha
That´s coolabout Grandma. Will she be able to go to another place or stay in Spokane? Or do we know yet? That´s also great about Mikey and Rebecca. That´s funny about Dallin. I can imagine how crazy it would be to wait until 9:00. He didn´t look to anxious when he was sleeping while I was talking yesterday. Haha :) Anyway have a great week everyone. Merry Christmas again! Love you guys.

Oi Familia!
Feliz Natal! So this week was really good. We had 5 people accept batism! Now we just have to work with them until the date and then after to keep them firm in the church. So anyway I´m really excited for that. I don´t know if 11:00 will work because we have church for one hour at 4:00 my time which is 11:00 your time. When is church for you? I´m free 8 to 10 and 1 until 4 your time. Maybe if you call the bishop and I´m not there just say ´´Somos a família de Elder Jolstead. Por favor ligar para ele`` Then wait for him to call maybe 30 min and then call again. haha I honestly don´t know how this is going to work. We should have planned this better before. Anyway I´ll wait for you guys to call there. Maybe I´ll be able to call you first. Anyway, so yeah I called Jaren. I was able to talk to his companion in Santa Maria and he let me call him. He was really tired though so I only talked a little. Anyway I´ll have to end now. I hope everything goes well with the phone. I´ll be waiting! Love you guys. Merry Christmas!

more pictures from the past six months

December 12, 2011

Oí Famíla,
Thanks for the video.It was really short though. Was it supposed to go until the end of the song? because it didn´t. :) So this week was hard. I got eaten alive by some kind of insect in Santa Maria and My foot swole up so much that I couldn´t walk. So I had to stay in our house until now. Almost 4 days.:( So I got my trainee! His name is Elder Sá. He´s really cool and has a ton of patience( you can imagine 4 days in the house without leaving:) ) Anyway, my foot is a ton better now. I was able to walk to the bus stop and to this computer place. At first my foot looked like leprosy, because it had dark red spots that kind of looked like the spots of a leopard. So anyway the bad part about al this is the baptismal date needs to be moced back of one of our investigators, because we couldn´t teach him this week and that we lost a lot of time to work and we´ll have to do a lot of catching up. The good párt is I got to know my companion pretty well and I´m half way through the Book of Mormon in Portuguese.:) Anyway thanks for the birthday wishes. I hope everything goes well with the play. Be sure to send pictures afterwards. Oh so we can´t skype here in my mission so it´ll be by phone. You guys will have to call. I´ll get the phone number this week and send it to you next week. Love you guys lots and have a great week. Happy Birthday to ME! :)

Elder Jolstead sent all his pictures from the last 6 months, here are a few.

December 5, 2011

Oí Família,
I´m glad you liked my pictures. That was 6 months in the making:) Feel free to add stuff to it. Oh so you already sent pics to Jared. He said he hadn´t received any yet, but I think the email he sent me was old. So today is transfer day. I found out I´ll be training! I´m really excited, but at the same time really scared. Oh so yeah I know Elder Erico. He was that short missionary who looked hispanic but was really hawaiian. I don´t know if you guys remember him, but he was there in Spokane for I think 3 months. He was there when I left. I have not yet adapted to the heat and I´m sure I won´t ever.:) ´´stinking hot`` doesn´t describe it. That comic book picture looks really cool, but unfortunately its really small so its hard to pic out details. So this week was difficult health wise. We ate something bad this week and to make a long story short we lost a lot of time in our house(spesifically in the bathroom:( ) It was not fun, but we´re better now. So I´m kind of sad to that my companion is leaving.... or really its a bit of mixed feelings. He´s a cool guy and I learned a lot with him, but it was hard to work with him. Anyway so today a member bought lunch for us today....all-you-can-eat....My stomach hurts now.:) So anyway I´m really excited to train but I know it will be hard and that I will have to trust in the Lord more than I have before. Have a great week everyone. Love you guys.
