Wednesday March 11:
Thanks for the info dad. so here in sao paulo, brazil the weather is about the same as back home. brazil is so different that what i was thinking. so how is back home? how is work how is everything. the mtc here or they call it the ctm is cool. so on friday 2 days after we arrived we got to go proscelyting it was way crazy. i couldnt even speak portuguese very well. i kept freezing up and stuff lol. they speak so so fast. we ended up giving out 0 books of mormon and 3 pass along cards. i have a new comp his name is elder mitchell. hes from texas. he is kinda hard to get along with but he is cool and is very smart. so you should use and send me lettters tell peeps at church too. and tell kristen. oh today we went to the temple in campina it was so beautiful. its like an hour from here. in 2 weeks we get to go to the temple here in soa paulo!. i couldnt take pics though cuz were not supposed to bring our camers out of the mtc cuz they say we will get robbed lol. the mtc has like way high security i~m talking camers at ever corner outside and gates and security gaurds outside its way hardcore. to get out onto the street at the mtc they open one gate then you walk in then you close that gate. then they open the next gate and let you out lol. crazy crazy. well keep buying me cookies from cheyneys. i need to write nate then go play some piano!! its the best way to calm myself. oh in my room we have 2 brazillian roomates. 3 bunkbeds one for me and my comp then the 2 brazillians and 2 other americans. ( my old comp and a really cool guy) his name is elder laBaron. oh they took our money when we got here and put it in a safe along with calling cards and debit cards. they gave us 60 hais or whatever. which is like 30 bucks its enough. there are little vendors out here selling ties for 3 bucks!! nice ones and we just shirts for 3 bucks too its so crazy. i ate a big burger down the street with a sweet shake for 3 bucks too lol. its sweet. well alright love ya dad and mom
