P-day is going great so far! I hope you guys go those pictures I sent! I will send some more today :)
This week was pretty uneventful so it will be a shorter email then usual.
This week has been pretty good. We have had to teach a lot of lessons
every day so are teaching skills have definitely improved. We are
beginning to understand more and more what are investigators are saying
so we are able to adapt the lessons to their needs, so we are definitely
feeling the spirit so strongly when we teach. Our teach Irma Kikutchi
said that is week we had the best lessons, and she felt the spirit so
strongly when we were teaching! So its good to hear we are improving :)
Some new Brazilians just moved in to the MTC this week, as well as some
new North Americans. There is one Brazilian who is like 6,6 and 200
plus pounds who is an MMA fighter and a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu ! I WAS LIKE TEACH ME!!! Its so funny how I am making so many Brazilian friends even though I don't have that big of a vocabulary :)
They are all extremely nice and helpful.
Yesterday was pretty sad, Elder Perez my best friend here in the MTC is
leaving, and he left today. Last night we all took a ton of pictures and
hugged and said goodbye. It was so funny we were taking group photos
and Elder Johnson had some hot chocolate, then all of a sudden Elder J.
Perieia came barging in and spilled hot chocolate all over Elder
Geislers back and all over my sleeve! HAHAHA I was laughing so much!!!
I hope you got the pictures I sent last week, I will send more today!
The pictures are my view from the plane, my district together, Elder
Perez (ps, the thing on his head mom is a garbage bag wig, he does
hilarious impersonations of elvis presley, MJ, and does entire scenes
from StarWars hahaha!) , I think I sent some of my room, and a few of me
and Elder Ballam. I hope you loved them :)
Its crazy to thing that I have been here for a whole month! We are
pretty old guys around here hahaha. It was really fun yesterday one of
the new Elders came up to me and was like dude how old are you...and I
said 19, July 6th. He was like wow I am older then you but you look so
old. Its funny how those who have served longer look so much older and
more experienced...we change personality wise and become more mature but
at the same time we look more mature to :). only 5 more weeks until I
am out in the field!
