thanks so much for the chips& ques o and the brownies you're the best mom ever!! We're going to have a going away party. The three sisters got their mission calls and there all going to LA CA!! So its pretty exciting stuff and my companion is going to Minnesota! I got the sweet hearts and the picture of me and Sophie so cute!! I'm glad Blake like fruit ninja!! I'm sure Grandpa had a blast with that!! I'm going to miss getting all the letters and packages so quickly! I cant believe I get to go to Brazil this Monday it's gonna be crazy!! If Sophie is missing me really badly have her send me and email and tell her that I'll say something back soon! Or use the dear elder site. I'll try to send another letter home before I leave. I got to host yesterday! the elder I hosted is from Tongan islands and is probably going to be playing football for BYU! I also taught an investigator with my companion in front of 150 new missionaries and we did awesome! The spirit was in the room and my teacher said that we did outstanding and he was really proud of us! Today I had infield orientation and its classes to review how to teach in the field and its 9 and a half hours of classes but it was awesome! There's a show called the district on lds.org and the district is about missionaries and a documentary on missionary work non-scripted so its interesting to see how missionaries react to different situations! And some of the missionaries that were in that show were teaching me today in class! It was way awesome! A sister from the district spoke at the devotional on Tuesday night and it was great! A lot of my devotional nights I have members of the 70 come and talk with me and they always have great testimonies and experiences to share! The mtc is awesome and I love you guys so much! I'm super busy here and on Friday or Saturday I'll be packing for Brazil! I'll try to write another email then before I leave I'll definitely call home on Monday! I have a five hour layover so I'll call then! I'll talk to you soon!
