September 23, 2009  (6 WHOLE MONTHS! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT HIS MISSION IS  GOING BY SO FAST! (Wow boy how times flies) 

Elder Fuller just wrote home today and gave me a link to a blog of the Curitiba mission, he said in his letter to go to it and see the pics from the parade. He is in some of them! He said that as the hundreds of missionaries walked through the parade the people would all cheer and clap! He said it was the most amazing thing and that he will never forget it!!  He also said that i should check back often and be able to see whats going on in the mission….. but I think he forgot that none of us know how to speak Portugese! haha! So I better get on that! haha!

Oh ya and one more thing… I just received another sd card so dont forget to check out the new pics. I cannot believe what he is eating down there!!!

September 2, 2009

Yes it has been a crazy last few months! C’Jay is doing awesome and loving it every day! With many baptisms already under his belt, he is on fire teaching the gospel to people ready to hear the truth! I finally updated all of his pages today so check out his letters that he sends home each week by email! You will laugh and yes you will cry!!!

WOW The last six weeks have been amazing in his area of Timbu Curitiba! He has had many ups and downs learning the language. After agreeing to marry a woman’s 15 year old daughter, calling people names on accident, and  being chased by dogs;  He really has learned to fast and pray for help  to be able to get this language down. In fact last weeks letter stated that the day he fasted and prayed for help was the first day he spoke Braziliaan Portugese the entire day! So he decided he would not eat for the next two years just so he could speak fluently! haha! But  even through all of these struggles he has been so blessed to have six people want to be baptized, two of them were baptized 3 days ago. He writes: 
  “I baptized my first person yesterday and his name is Mateus! He is so cool and right before I dunked him he looked up and gave me the biggest and brightest smile! It was so awesome and such a great experience!”

“”We have been working with this family of 5 that have been living with each other for 6 years but not married yet! We had a family night with some members for them and we watched the movie TOGETHER FOREVER it was so amazing because they agreed to get married then and baptized too! It was so spiritual!”

“Watch the movie TOGETHER FOREVER this weekend and pray for this family for us!:)”

C’Jay also informed us that he got his first transfer……. in the same area with the same compainion. We told him that it sounds like you two are just getting started in this area and your work is not done here yet!  So check out the letter section for a more detatils!

Thanks

C'Jay and his companion from the MTC! Saying goodbye

June 21,2009
C’Jay has been in Timbu for almost 4 weeks now! He was quite an adjustment getting used to the real world of Brazil! But after his rough first week he is doing well and loving every minute of it! He sent us a package with a small gift for each of us to remember Sao Paulo! He also sent his SD card from his camera  filled with pictures and videos, which we have absolutely loved! I have added a few pictures but will be adding some funny videos! So check them out! Also check out the new letters from the past 3 weeks!

             Elder Fuller has been in the Sao Paulo, Brazil MTC  now for seven weeks!  We have watched our son grow from a boy to a man! It is amazing to see this happen! He is sharing scriptures and his testimony with us through his letters. We have laughed and cried as we have watched this happen!  Even though he has had some challenging times learning the language he seems  to be so happy!  He has learned to ”Include God” in all that he is learning and doing. He said that with Gods help you can accomplish anything!  He has learned to ask him for help in prayer each day and has found that God does answer every  prayer!  It is so amazing to see our Son figure this out for himself.  I am now understanding what everyone meant when they said that missions really do change lives!  C’Jay is gaining a personal relationship with the Savior as he comes to rely on him each day! We are so proud of C’Jay and his dedication to learning the gospel in Portugese.  He also mentioned in a letter to his sister that he wished he would of stayed awake in seminary more! He said that this learning process would definately be a whole lot easier! HAHA!

(To read  more of C’Jay’s letter from this week, go to letters from Brazil)

March 24, 2009

Today C’Jay left for the Sao Paulo Brazil Missionary Training Center (MTC)! It was quite an emotional day for all of us except C’Jay he was so excited and ready to go. The last vision of  him was going up the escalator with two other missionaries with a huge smile on his facing waving goodbye to all of us!

You will be missed C'Jay! You will be missed C’Jay!
