Thank you so much for the pecote! (package) I was so excited to see that today. [A gift certificate to Mr. Cheney's Cookies, through MissionTies.com] The lady took a pic of me and my comp eating our cookies so hopefully you get it soon. But it was so nice to get something. I haven’t got a letter yet.
:( Ha but it’s ok. I think I have some on the way!
I just got back from the temple and sending a letter to you and Jaimee! I hope you get them soon.
Anyway, I am feeling fine! No more cold! I play volleyball and work out every day, so the ship is in shipshape (rocket man) anyway, the CTM is still awesome. I can’t believe I have been here for two weeks! The first week went by very slow... not gunna lie, but this one flew by!! And the language is coming along really well. I wanted to send some pics today, but the photo printer was out of paper at the shop by the CTM, so I have to wait until next pday ;( sorry.
But Dad that was nice of you and Mom -- thank you for the package! Tell Ryan I said hi and Michelle I’ll be praying for her. Remington, I love you to bud and I miss you a lot!
So the random stuff... I play volleyball and workout every day! I tell my Brazilian roommate, “Boa noite meu amor,” every night, which means good night my love... So he thinks I'm crazy. Ha. I drew a temple on the whiteboard in class and people think it’s cool. People have taken pictures of it or with it, and I drew one for this cool guy from Plant City, right next to Lakeland... so I will send pics of both!
I loved conference!! My fav talk was Elder Holland; it seriously brought me to tears! I wrote a lot about it in the letter I sent so I won’t go into to details, but it was the best talk I have ever heard!
Today on the way to the temple, I was the last one on the bus, so I had to sit in the jump seat, RIGHT next to the driver who doesn’t speak any English. So I had to whip out my amazing Portuguese for the hour trip... and it went really well actually! I’m sure I sounded like a gringo, but I was able to say a lot of stuff and understand him!! Also, the drivers here are CRAZY! We almost got in 5 wrecks... no joke! We got cut off so many times ha.
But I got to go, my time is up!! The email situation is hard! Only 30 min to read and write!!!
I love you all so much!
