Missionary Life Is On Fire ... Literally!

Dear Family,

Hey!!! How’s everyone? How was the first day of school?? Was it exciting? I always liked the first day of school … getting to see everyone again … getting to see who's in your classes … it was always pretty fun. The first day and the last day are the best days of school! Haha Oh man! My first day of school is going to be way different when I get home. I’ll be off to college. But I still have a year until that’ll come and a whole summer after my mission to worry about that, so no need to even think about it now.

Today I have been out exactly 1 year and 4 months!! Man the time flies!! It’s crazy to think how long it’s been when it seems like I’ve only been here for a little bit. Does it seem that long to you guys? It’s been going by so quick!!

Honesty Is Everything

Hey Guys!!

Ya … Elder Costa was transferred.  :(  I was pretty bummed.  He went to Sao Paulo again.  Now I’m with Elder Meireles who's from a little city (I forgot the name) in a state called Para.  I like him.  I just decided not to go into the transfer with any pre-conceived notions.  That’s what I would want someone to do with me.  I miss Elder Costa a ton and I doubt I’ll get another companion like him again.  But Elder Meireles is a good missionary and I like him too.

Family Here ... And Family There

Hey guys!!!!

Man!  Right now the LAN house we’re at has some movie on the TV, and every other word is a swear word!!  The worst part … it’s in English so I’m the only one in here understanding everything!!  It’s horrible!!  Thankfully these computers have headphones so I put them on and got on the church website and have music going on in my ears.  Now I can’t hear anything.

"Everything Just Makes Sense!"

Hey guys!!!

How’s everyone doing??  Sorry my emails have been getting shorter.  Things have been a little crazier now on P-Days because we have to accompany the Assistants on Mondays.  We end up waiting around all morning.  That makes it hard when we have stuff to do.  Sometimes when it takes awhile to finally get out, and then once we get out and do everything we need to, there goes the P-Day.  And that only leaves me with a little bit of time to write emails.  Also, the key board here is really weird and it takes me forever to type.  You know me … I already type slow, add on a tricky keyboard, and then I mess up a lot.  So that’s why they are getting shorter.  By the time I get on … I often don’t have any time.
