Sorry Mom, I got a hair cut so I’ve kinda been busy and wont have as much time on here now. I’m glad I’m here at the Provo MTC! It's such a great place, my cousins and some friends are all here so I get to see them occasionally! Makes me so happy to see them! I saw Jake and Kurtis today and we are going to get a picture together at the map. Mom thanks for sending me that stuff. I didn't realize I'd be using so much athletic clothes here. Gym time is way fun, I get way sweaty from playing basketball and sometimes using the weight machines. I have made a bunch of friend here that I will always remember!
Earlier this week we got a call over the intercom that called half of our district down to the travel office, which usually mean you got your visa. So we all were freaking out thinking they were really leaving, but it turned out we just had to resubmit our police record because it expired after 6 months.. Crazy to think I’ve had my visa in for 6 months. The travel office told us it was a good thing because that means they are actually looking at the visas. So that was pretty exciting. haha
The speakers we get are amazing! Tuesdays and Sundays are the best! On Tuesday we got to hear from an area 70 that talked to us about humbling ourselves (Ether 12:27) so we can experience growth. It's crazy how many missionaries there are here. Their are a bunch of Brazilians here too, so when they see our tags they come talk to us and speak a little Portuguese to us. Way funny cause they are way bold and funny! I can already tell I’m gonna love it there in Brazil.
The food is alright. I think my stomach is getting used to it. When I was sick it was just a cold. I’m pretty much over it now so that's good. I can’t believe the house is almost done!! You all are going to love it, I bet. I'd love to see pictures of the house.
Oh Millie, haha. I miss her always being by my side and watching me eat my food. haha... Emme, every time I think of her I almost start to cry. She has brought so much happiness into our family and especially to Amanda and Shaye. They deserve nothing less than a beautiful healthy daughter. I love Emme so much!
Amy, congrats on being an officer! That's awesome! I bet you are a great example to all the girls on the team. You’re amazing Amish. How is school? Better stay away from those boys! Anything new with you little sis?? I miss you!
Steph, I hope everything is going well with you! I miss your jokes and funny personality. Some people here just don’t understand humor. haha I Love you and hope Jordan is a cool guy. Even though Ryan was a total BOSS! Love ya Stephy.
Tell Jeff and Cam thanks for taking the Brad Mobil. I know it's in good hands. I hope everything is well with you two. You are so perfect together and I love both of you. Both of you keep working hard and Jeff, I would really encourage you to start taking classes at Dixie. I feel like you will go into a great profession if you dedicate yourself to the work. I’m sure it will all pay off.
Amanda and Shaye, I hope all is well! Anything new? Shaye better get that Porshe ready for me. That's awesome about your new jobs and promotions! You both are going to do so well in life. Amanda- Chocolate chip oatmeal.. haha( she will know what I’m talking about) I miss both of you and love ya.
Thanks Mom, I know this is what I’m suppose to do and I know I'll experience a huge growth here that will carry over to my life after a mission; like becoming a great father like Dad, Shaye and Jeff soon :) haha. Mom you have been such a blessing to me. You love everyone. I am really trying to be more like you and dad and be patient, loving, hard working, and humble. Sometimes I get irritated and it's hard to settle down and remember that I’m on the Lord's time. Not mine. I’ve realized how selfish I have been in the past, so I’m sorry family. That phrase you shared with me is exactly what i needed! I need to keep all my actions thoughts and feelings towards love and Christ.
In class we have been learning a lot about how to teach a new investigator. We now have to plan and teach a lesson everyday! Kinda crazy but really fun applying their needs into the lesson. The language is coming surly but slowly. I can’t wait to be fluent, even though I know it will be awhile.
That’s awesome what you are teaching in Sunday school. We actually just taught Paulo about the whole restoration and he really liked the things about prophets!
I love you family. I’m sorry I had to write this quick cause we are so busy here!
I love hearing from you and miss you all.
Paz e Amor
