April 28, 2014

I'm heading off for my second area tomorrow!  Can't believe it has already been another 6 weeks.  There members here have been so awesome.  I'm going to have one last BBQ before I leave.  I got to go to the temple last week and it was a great experience.  It is basically a super p-day where I got to walk around a giant shipping center and eat lunch there.  And then afterward head for the temple.  I'm excited to leave for a new area though.  I'll let you guys know next week where in Brazil I am.  I got some letters dated February 16 this week.  It was the day of Sophie's birthday so it takes a little while for letters to get here.  I haven't gotten any of the packages yet.  I think it takes a few months to arrive.  Time is going by super fast!

 We made tacos on P-Day

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!
