Hello Mae and E. Roberts,

Well... I was taking a look at the Walmart site and I think (99,9% of chance) that Walmart bought Bom Preco, since it is weird to see a supermarket site talking so well about another supermarket. As Mae gave you an advise, I will give another one: buy stuffs at mini markets, because they can have better prices. Here in US, Walmart has very good prices, however in Brazil Walmart/Bom Preco can be very expansive. I was there on April and I almost felt down when I saw the prices there.
Humm...another tip: When you take photos, write in the back the names, so you will be able to remember who is who and take a note of adresses and phone numbers o fthose who you really like. It will be helpfull if you got back after some years. I have some of addresses and that helped me a lot to find places, once places change and your memory is not so good after 9 years.
Sucess in your mission. You will love and they will love you.

Hey Elder Roberts,

What? Are you saying you *want* to get robbed in Recife? Just kidding -- but not really.

My intent is not to scare you - even I survived some funky areas - but to be practical. It has been 8 years since I served in Recife and 6 years since I was last there. During those times missionaries and travellers were strongly advised not to have flashy cameras or wear jewelry/watches that basically say, "Hey! Rob me!"

I doubt much has changed, but hey I can be completely wrong. My advice is to buy an inexpensive camera that takes 35mm film. (I know... cameras from the dinosaur age.) If your camera becomes lost or stolen ... no big deal. Also, you may have an easier time developing your pictures than trying to find a place to burn cds. Big cities in Pernambuco (the state) may have places to do that but if you are in the interior (aka places outside big cities) you might as well forget it. They either won't have the technology or you'll pay through the nose with your barely-enough-mesada. (It won't be worth it.) And to answer your question... Recife does not have a Walmart. The big stores are Carrefour and Bom Preco. Also there are plenty of lojas.

Don't worry so much about developing pictures. Go serve, work hard, and if worse comes to worst be glad to have a camera. :)

Have fun.

Follow Up Orkut 18 Oct 2006
I didn't realize that you couldn't join Orkut unless you were invited. The disclaimer on the site says:

"orkut is unique, because it's an organically growing network of trusted friends. That way we won't grow too large, too quickly and everyone will have at least one person to vouch for them.

If you know someone who is a member of orkut, that person can invite you to join as well. If you don't know an orkut member, wait a bit and most likely you soon will.

We look forward to having you as part of the orkut community."

If you would like to get on, I can send you an invite to get on, just send me an e-mail at

Orkut 17 Oct 2006
There is a site called that is similar to but is a favorite of Brazilians.

I have been amazed at the number of members from Natal, Recife, and Caico that I knew that I have been able to get in contact with again.

It is something interesting to check out if you are interested in seeing how some of the ward members are doing.

Brazilian Handcrafts - Artesanato Brasileiro! 21 Sep 2006 has a great new department: WORLDSTOCK

They have just started bringing handcrafts from Brazil and usually get sold out pretty fast.

Next week there will be a limited edition of the paintings of Luiz Mendes (Harvests of Brazil hardcover book). Each painting was painted individually and there will be only 20 available on site.

Don’t get used to the price you will see this time. The two paintings that will be sold this time are to promote the greeting cards (a new project) in the future.

Ok, how do I know all of that?

I am here in Brazil right now for Worldstock. Drinking Guarana and eating churrasco until my belly explodes! Oh yeah, and working of course…

Have a good day you all’

Google Earth Hacks 16 Aug 2006
There is a site called Google Earth Hacks ( that holds a lot of different points of interest like

Beaches -
Bairros of Recife -
Natal Fortress -,-RN---Brazil.htm
Cabadelo -,-PB---Brazil.htm
Ponta do Seixas -

I also found it interesting that Google Earth has a clear picture of Petrolina in its entirety, but not of a majority of Joao Pessoa and Natal.

Google Earth Placemarks 14 Aug 2006
I found a file with many placemarks of locations in Recife. It is extensive but not church centric. It has 'church of the mormons' for the temple. I found it interesting. Here is the location to get the file and try it out for yourseves.

More Landmarks 25 Jul 2006
I was incorrect about the apartment of the president, as I was searching through I realized that I misplaced where I thought the building to be, the correct place is:
8º02'46.63" S 34º54'09.00" W

Also A capela de Madalena:
8º02'57.59" S 34º54'54.62" W

and the new house of Madalena as of 2005
8º02'53.49" S 34º55'07.50" W

And as always I am looking for more places to add to my database.

Google Earth 18 Jul 2006
That's cool the Google Earth images are being updated! I love seeing the temple there - it was announced after I ended my mission, but I remember the Hiper Bompreco and the mango grove.

Anyway, here's a site that will let you search for street addresses in Brazil:

Click the "Localize um endereço" link under the "Guia de Ruas" section.

Coordinates for the Ninfas chapel:
8deg 03' 37.02" S
34deg 53' 28.06" W

I'd love to find the Mission President's home, as well as chapels in Encruzilhada, Santa Rita, Potengi, etc. I think a lot of the Ward names have changed since then.

Oh, you can also search for chapel addresses on - Worship With Us link.

I am so excited that Google Earth has finally got Recife on there. Now I can show my wife where I served.

I have managed to find the Mission Office on Derby and the Temple in Google Earth, but where is the apartment that President Gollaher and Grahl lived in and where is the church next to the Sitio da Trinidade?

Temple -
Latitude - 8° 2'12.10"S
Longitude - 34°54'39.60"W

If anyone has any landmarks that they have identified, please post the coordinates.

Recife Made Google Earth 13 Jul 2006
Hello Everyone,

For quite some time, I have enjoyed playing around with Google Earth or similar aerial view programs. I was always a little bummed that areas such as where we all served our missions were not detailed at all. Well, just recently, Google Earth updated several of their images, including a large part of Recife, Part of Natal, and part of Joao Pessoa. It is kind of fun to be able to look at many of the same roads we walked on (and walked and walked and walked and walked). Anyway, I just thought some of you might be interested in taking a look. If you don't already have Google Earth, here is the link... I hope everyone is doing great!!

AJUDA (URGENTE) 10 Nov 2005
Alguém de vocês teria o endereço e telefones de contato do irmão AILTON DUTRA que mora em João Pessoa? Na minha época de missão (98-00) ele era um dos conselheiros do Pres. Grahl e continuou sendo do Pres. Gomes (MBJP). Ele era da Estaca João Pessoa Rangel, mas parece ele passou a ser da Estaca João Pessoa. Estou precisando dessas informações com a máxima urgência. Se alguém souber delas ou de como eu poderia consegui-las, favor me enviar e-mail, ok? Forte abraço a todos!

Missão Brasil João Pessoa 23 Sep 2005
Olá amigos!! Venho aqui avisar todos vocês que o site da Missão Brasil João Pessoa está atualizado e em pleno funcionamento. Sei que muitos de vocês que serviram na época do Presidente Grahl, passaram em áreas que após a divisão, ficaram para a MBJP, como João Pessoa, Campina Grande, Patos, Natal, Caicó e Currais Novos (acho que disse todas as cidades na época). Com a criação da MBJP em 1º de julho de 1998, mais duas cidades passaram a pertencer à ela, quais sejam, Mossoró e Aracati-CE, que faziam parte da Missão Brasil Fortaleza. Atualmente, saibam que o nosso trabalho contribuiu para que hoje, CAICÓ SEJA UM FORTE DISTRITO (por exemplo), novas cidades na Paraíba foram abertas... enfim, talvez vocês queiram dar uma olhadinha no referido site. O endereço é:
Um forte abraço, ex-Elder Medina.
