Well Hello my family and friends,
Really I am enjoying my time here in Rio Claro. It is a great place it has a lot of people but it is also very calm and tranquil. I like it here, the members are sweet and I am adapting fine. The whole senior thing is interesting I have to be self motivated and I have to do about everything. That is interesting I am liking it really. We are having success. We will have 2 baptisms this week if we can get permission from the mom of our investigators. There dad is a member but they live with their mom and they have been going to church for some time now. They just need a little push in the water. it will be interesting to see how things work out. I will pray a lot and all will work out.
well my comp… it is a bit difficult. He is very new and I have to do everything but it will work out. You know waht he is a lot like Colton. It is like I am serving a mission with him. Quiet and all. I am learning a lot about patience. A lot. You asked if we speak English, we don´t ever speak English. I have not spoken English in a conversation since the CTM. It is pretty weird. I have spoken a little english at different times but not a lot. I like it better that way. I guess I am qualified as fluent more or less. I mean I have difficulties at times and i do have an accent but I am getting there. I have been given a great gift of tongues.
you know I have gained a little weight not a lot but a little I will send some pics. i think I am better looking now : )
As for the food the best thing up until now is pizza frita. I don´t think the really counts. Hmm… I don´t know it is weird the food here is really just a mix of a lot of different cultures. I love Churrasco, and also the salgados (fried snacks) Calda de cana is good (type of juice from sugar cane) i like a lot of things Pão de quejo (a type of cheese bread) really everything is good. I am fan of it all. I will have to look up some more names of things.
I am adjusting good to Rio Claro and I am liking it a lot. we are starting to do a great work here.
Aunt shanna told me about melindas accident. that really stinks. I will pray for her.
I am glad that everyone is close together and all. I hope you have a great time at shannas. i am sure your b´day will be great. Happy B~day!!!
