Dear Mom, Thank you so much for the package! I got it after Christmas though, but it was still awesome! Just a heads up though Brazil has snickers and they're not rare to find, but next package sent some candy that we dont have here like swedish fish or gummy bears! Thanks! I had a pretty alright week. Didnt have that much noteworthy to write about, but New years was normal. I actually didnt lose any sleep at all and slept the whole night through haha. We worked in a different area that we think can produce some great new investigators and some people that will actually go to church. We got a reference of a couple from the president of the branch in the area next to ours and they went to church this week and so we are going to keep working with them and help them prepare to get married and baptized! Yeah! I cant wait! We have also been struggling getting lessons with members present this week but we had a great coordination meeting yesterday with a ward mission leader and so this week is going to be awesome! I love working with the members here because this work isnt just work for the full-time missionaries it is a ward affair. And it need the support and help from each ward member! Loving life and I cant wait to continue this work in the rest of 2014! Happy New Year and I hope you have a great week!
Love, ELDER RUCKER
