so let me tell you about my sickness (2/24)

thanks for making me wait just a little more for my package. ive been dying to get this package. we had choir practice again today and i am dominating in the tenor part. its way easy now, i just like almost pass out everytime we sing. but they said the tenors are singing the best and the loudest ya!!. who would have thought. little choir boy! thats cool that chris got his wisdom teeth out!. i remember that. so he got put to sleep huh? way cool.
so let me tell you about my sickness. i went to the doctor last thursday and she like felt my stomach and stuff and we talked and he sent me to do 3 tests. first i had to get my blood tested and i had to use the bathroom in a cup 3 times. in 3 different days. but......... it wasnt to pee in a cup!!! it was to do number 2 lolololololololololol.... but that was a great experience on the mission. then monday i did an endoscopia... i dont know how to say it in english. i think its like endoscope.. its like when they put a camera in your stomach and take pictures!!. but ya so they put me to sleep too! and i woke up after the endoscope and i was all drugged. my companion took a video of me!. he took pictures too mom. i know you will love that. but then the rest of the day monday i had to stay at home cuz of the drugs. but that was a good rest!!!. and i wrote some letters in that time!.  Kristens got a letter comming and i sent a letter to Hunter! . but no one else writes me. so if anyone else wants letters you gots to write.. but ya i got one more test. its called in portuguese a echografia or like you know when your pregnant and you wanna see your baby. they pass gel on your stomach then pass like a camera on your stomach. ya ill do that too!! so im just full of exams this week. but i just hope they can find out whats wrong with me!! but ya. and if justin wants to skate he can use the almost broken skateboard thats like orange and yellon on the bottom. and when i get back i can teach him some stuff to go pro. and about my computer stuff. if you guys would like yall can take a picture of everything and put it up on ebay. maybe that would get some cash. or just..... i dunno. sell it the best way to make dough!. and dont be afraid to send some of that money my way. but ya that was my week. lots and lots of work. and the days are going by faster. thanks for everything! love ya guys

Por favor arrependeí-vos

So thanks for the wonderful email! it was amazing. it really shows how much you guys love me. so im getting 0 emails and 0 letters at that. 1 year really is a big step. Por favor arrependeí-vos... todos vos e vamos lembrar daquele missíonarío que saiu na missão e escrever uma carta para ele agora! ou email funciona também! so let me see what happened this week. it was Carníval here in brasíl but here in Curitiba they dont really celebrate it. so we were tranquil just working regularly but... there were a ton of peeps that went on vacation. so like at church there was like 20 people there. i had to pass sacrament. some cool stuff hapened last week though!. so i was at a members house right waiting to eat lunch and she was like elder arroyo i got a present for ya and i was like sweet! she grabs this cell phone and was like "Its yours!" and i was like whoa! so its a touch screen phone its from japan and it was an antenna that comes out so you can watch tv. it looks expensive. but... but... its screen is broken. her son sat on it and broke the screen but she told me she called around to get it fixed and everyone says they only have replacable screens in the united states and in japan. so she was like you live in the states so you can fix it and use it after the mission!. so ya i got a phone. but since i cant have it on the mish. president is holding it until i finish my mission!. cool though right!. this is the model of my phone*snip* dad can look it up!. so what else happened this week. oh we were at a less active members house to help her come back to church right.. and were just sitting and talking and shes like you guys want soda. and im like ya sure... then she brings these huge wine glasses out with orange soda and im like oh cool... and i could smell alcohol when i got in the house but then i go to drink my soda and its got the strongest smell of wine in it. and like me and my comp look at each other and then i just chug it. ive learned you dont look whats in the cup or smell anything you just got to drink the thing!. you dont know how many times i have asked for water and they give me a cup of water and i go to drink it and theres like stuff at the bottom. you just close your eyes drink and thank the person!. ya way cool right. the mission is the greatest. jk but its great mesmo. oh we had chior practice again. it was great. Tenor is way fun to sing. oh and i am ganna send you guys a package. dont worry about giving me money i can save here. but i need to know what you guys want. mom i already have 3 recipe books, and for justin i am buying a soccor jersey. thats legit from brasíl, what does everyone else want. let me know. oh ya and then to fill it i will put in like brasillian candy and packs of juice!. but thats pretty much what happened this week. oh and im going to the doctor tomorrow to check out my stomach cuz its just causing problems. but thanks for everything!. love

so so so hot (2/12)

OK. so wow this week was so so so hot. I'm talking hotter than hot. Like during the day your just frying in the sun. and then at night your just lying in bed awake cuz its so hot to sleep!. its way crazy and I'm still having stomach problems but I'm kinda getting used to that now. but other than that the week was a good one. and ya I'm about to hit my one year mark!. it will be the 18th cuz that's when i got in the MTC. crazy right? one year ago i left home. but ya you did like those pictures. It was the first time i used my baptismal clothes. but it was great!. OK about my camera. there is this one dude on the mission that his mom sent him a package with a camera in it and she didn't mark it on the box then when it went in the mail they stopped it cuz the box wasn't marked that had a camera in it. and they like didn't wanna give him the package and the Secretaries had to fight for it. but in the end he got his camera. but Elder Cox told me his mom sent him a camera and sent it and it got there fine. so i have no idea. i just hope that i get it!. and if you send something to sister Christina i can get it to her. i am way close to her house still. today were going to eat lunch there! amazing!. so way cool that Justin's in scouts. doing all those knots and stuff. i still remember some. and cool that Destinee is going to compete in choir. believe it or not I'm in the choir here on the mission now. we started practicing today. im singing tenor! ya who would have thought. and that's sweet that Chris wants to be a firefighter. i never would have thought that i would have a brother as a fire fighter. it will be crazy that he will be leaving on his mission soon. he needs to start looking for what he wants to take. cuz the more comfortable the backpack the better. so as of today i have a new email! they moved all of our emails so everything will start coming here. i don't know if the old one will work. i am clueless. but this one has got to be way better. cuz its built with gmail!. the other email was horrible. but now were in!. oh and ya i heard that the saints won the super bowl. mayer from dads works got to be going nuts. but that was my week. just a hot hot week. i hope to get my camera soon. and before you guys know it ill be on the plane ride home! love you guys
