April 27, 2015 | COME COME YE SAINTS, MY SHIRTS WON´T STAY DRY HERE

Well these last couple of weeks have been interesting to say the least… I went from knowing what was going on, teaching a bunch of people, teaching them in ENGLISH, having a truck, and eating food I recognized to the CTM in São Paulo… back to training! and now to the field again haha it was a humbling experience going back and learning how to be a missionary again. my first area is a little town 2 hours outside of Asa Sul in Brasília called Padre Bernardo 🙂 we have one active member family here and another member family that comes down from Ceilândia and I have no clue where that is, but I guess I passed it coming out here haha! but that member family is seriously so amazing… they feed us lunch and dinner literally everyday. and Siló (the dad) owns a gym that he opens up early for us so we can lift in the mornings!! definitely a blessing to know that guy 😉 my first couple days here they fed us cow heart and piranha and DANGALANG they were good haha!

this one will probably be pretty short too since I don´t have a lot of time and I´m still kind of in a daze with the culture shock and everything. and I can´t really talk about our investigators or anything aside from the fact that we have like 4 bajillion of them and I have NO CLUE what they´re saying!! portuguese is stupid hard haha:/ so I just kinda sit and smile and nod and fry my brain trying to translate the few words I recognize while I eat everyone´s food 🙂 haha it´s rough. so I just talk to all the kids and mess around with them and play soccer in the street!!! it´s a lot of fun and I actually kind of understand them!

rough week, great people, I´m still super white. I LOVE YOU ALL! mob steady, love the Lord, peace be the journey. here´s my address for all you beautiful people that like sending mail!
