Dear Family,

This week is carnaval week again here in Brazil.  There are a TON of people traveling and anywhere you go you see parties and EVERYONE watches the parades on TV.  This week was a great week because we had the visit from Elder David Evans last monday.  It was a really spiritual meeting and he taught everyone a lot about our purpose as missionaries.  He said something really interesting too, he said that we are a peculiar people, and what has always set us apart in the past has been the word of wisdom and the law of chastity.  However what will set us apart in the future is the fact that our church defends the family.  Our church defends the truth that marriage is between a man and a woman and that children have the right to be born into a family with a mother and a father.  It was interesting to think of it that way.  This past week has been really busy because we have been preparing the transfers.  President Ferrin is the one that does the transfers and we help him in the process.  Tomorrow is the actual transfer meeting and it is the assistants responsiblity to make sure everything runs smoothly.  Other than that there isn´t much news this week.  This next week is going to be nuts because we have the transfer tomorrow and then on Thursday and Friday ANOTHER general authority is coming to visit the mission.  It is really awesome but kind of crazy too haha.  Anyways that´s about it for this week!
Love you all and hope that you have a great week!

-Elder Caleb Anderson
