It is so great to here from you guys! I only have 20min so I have to make this super fast. My first week in the MTC was definitely hard but also soooo rewarding! I have grown spiritually so much! Every day I see the hand of god in my life with everything I do. The language is difficult but its amazing to see how much we are learning so quickly. The 2nd day in the MTC we had to teach our first investigator in all Portuguese but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. When she was talking it was crazy how well I could understand her. Then out of no where the words just popped into my head and I was able to speak with her about the feelings she had around the temple and how she wanted that for her family. I then invited her to church and she was excited about it so much! Its crazy how the spirit works...I love all the guys in my district. They are all hilarious and extremely spiritual and I look up to all of them. Are district leader is Elder Pinon and he is a fantastic guy! We are like BFFS! My companion is a super nice guy and I really enjoy having him. Today is P-DAY!!!!!! We went to the temple in the morning for the 9 am session and it was fantastic! Definitely felt the spirit. Now I have only 15min to write emails and then we are going to explore Sao Paulo.
If you want a letter thats more in depth send me a letter or email me your address and Ill write a letter next week. ME AMO VOCE!
Ps. Letters and packages might take a little longer because there are mailmen strikes in Sao paulo so letters might take 3 to 4 weeks.
PS DONT SEND PACKAGES! It will cost you to much money to send them plus it will cost me a lot in tariffs and taxes.
LOVE and miss you guys so much
