Hey Mom! Transfers went well, and the only person in my apartment that was transferred was Elder Hooper (the other Americano) which means I wont have the temptation to speak English any more!! From what I understand, he is serving as zone leader in a different zone now, closer to Londrina. This week was awesome and I learned so much! The zoo was pretty similar to the ones in the US, but it mostly had animals of Brazil. There were a crazy number of monkeys and birds... I have some photos.The last photo is a wild money I saw in the street! The mailing address for my mission is...
Rua:Belo Horizonte 1236
B:Centro CEP 86020-06
Love you so much Mom and have a great week!!
Hey Dad!! That looks like and awesome truck! Is it very different from your last one? I´m glad its a Ford, but I cant tell if it has a long bed because of the angle and I cant make out the lettering on the side... We had an awesome week this week and I´m learning a ton. This Tuesday was pretty tough because for some reason all of my lessons were really off base and my companion had to help me a lot more than usual. I was feeling pretty discouraged about my progress in the language, and in teaching. I did a lot of studying and praying that night, and the next morning. the next day was incredible. I felt really excited and motivated to speak with people, and I spoke a lot better. My lessons had the spirit more strong, and I felt more love for the people. I have started to realize that the harder I work, the more the Lord blesses me. Throughout the day, I received a really unusually high number of compliments about how well I am speaking for such little time here, and mu companion talked with me about how impressed he is with my progress. I know that this was Heavenly Father's way of giving me comfort and letting me know that He is proud of the work I am doing here. Love you guys!!!
