Porto Alegre temple
(Second email later in the day)
Sounds like you guys had a crazy week! Blake's scar is crazy! Tell him congratulations for also having metal in his body! The temple was so awesome. I had a translator mating so I wasn't totally lost when the people were talking so that was good! I'm becoming better with packing my stuff for transfers so that's good. I'm excited to leave for a new area. We have 4 sister missionaries coming to our area so we super cleaned the place for them. I love you guys. I'll write more next week. It was fun to get your letters. We had stake conference last week and I could understand phrases at this meeting, but the people here talk very fast! The language is getting way better. I can understand people if they talk slow and I don't have any problems anymore speaking during lessons so that's gotten better. The six month mark is where I'll be able to understand everything apparently. That is according to other missionaries, so that will be neat. I think I might study German after I learn Portuguese on my mission, because a lot of people here know German. I can get a German Book of Mormon at the temple. Well, life's good here. I'm going to go eat super good meat! I'll write you more next week. Love ya!
