Belts are a little Tighter

Scripture of the Week: Alma 5:38

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Well I guess the highlight of my week was I gained 7 pounds from last week. Haha. That must be good here because apparently in João Pessoa, you will lose weight.

The food here is definintly amazing. I eat as much as I can everyday so by the end of each day you are stuffed. America night is the best because you get to eat something close to a sloppy joe and a chicken sandwich. I gained 2 pounds that night form the food.

Oh, we did splits this week which was crazy. I had a hard time saying stuff but I understand what most people say to me as long as it is slow. We had p-day last week and that means you can walk about 6 blocks away from the MTC each way so we just walked all day. It is hot here, let me say that. I sweated through my shirt by 30 min which never happens.

I think for p-day today, i´ll buy some hair-clippers because the barber here doesn´t look like a good one. The only person ruining my hair here is me.

Physical activity here is fun, you play basketball and volleyball and by the end of my stay here, I probably could beat you colton, hahaha, maybe not. We teach lessons everyday here and I am having a hard time trying to stay awake. The instructors have woken us up a few times because we always fall asleep from all the work we do.

Sorry I didn´t have much time to email today, I hope you guys have fun and keep up the good work. I love to get emails from you guys so don´t be afraid to send on.

Love, Elder Liquin

Colton: I hope basketball is going good. Who won state? Keep balling it up as much as possible though, remember to play bigger than you actually are.

Jordan: Keep up your work and on your homework. Don´t slack off because I can´t. I´ll hold you to it. If you ever feel down read 1 Nephi 3:7, awesome scripture.

Dad: Great job on finishing that wall at mom´s work, I'd love to get a picture. Keep on working hard and make Colton do some of the work. He isn´t busy or anything!

Mom: Hey love to hear from you, I can´t read everything but I love it. Love you Mom
