Elder Bean's Mission Scripture

Elder Bean's Mission Scripture:

Alma 26: 35

35 Now have we not reason to rejoice? Yea, I say unto you, there never were men that had so great reason to rejoice as we, since the world began; yea, and my joy is carried away, even unto boasting in my God; for he has all power, all wisdom, and all understanding; he comprehendeth all things, and he is a merciful Being, even unto salvation, to those who will repent and believe on his name.

Nov 12, 2012 "First week in 'o campo' - the field!"

Elder Petersen and Elder Bean

It has been a great last two weeks.  The week leading up to the field was so wonderful—having final experiences with my wonderful district and instructors.  So good, and oh, man-!!!-the field is just what I expected and better!  Português is hard, but it’s coming.  Elder Petersen is so legal.  God loves me a lot.  I was really worried whether or not I would receive a good trainer, but I’m in good hands J  Elder Petersen works really hard, helps me, and we only speak Português.  It’s really great.  It’s also amazing to be teaching real people—can’t tell you how great this work is.

The apartment is great, although right across the street is a lingerie store.  Life here is obviously very different.  My whole body hurts and I’m bright vermelho-!- but so happy. 
We never eat breakfast or dinner, but the members feed us well for almoço.  
All is well, the Português is coming, and I’m where I belong.  Love, Elder David

P.S.  Use the MISSION HOME ADDRESS for everything: 
Elder David Kirkwood Bean
Brasil São Paulo Norte Mission
Rua Dr. Rui Batista Pereira, 165
Jardim Caxingui
São Paulo - SP

Take care, I love you, have a great week!
