The Amazon is like Hawaii!
All is good on the amazon! Today I am writing my emails late because today 6 elders (including myself) went to a beach looking part of Santarem. It took like 1 hour and 30 min by bus. But I loved it! Its called Alter Do Chao. BEAUTIFUL! This week was not the best but we have 2 familys that are doing great!! One family has 4 kids (youngest to oldest - Pablo, Isabel, Yasmin, and Leandria) the dad is inactive and the family went to the 2nd session of general conference and they loved it!! Especially the mother (Glaucia) loved it the whole time she was listening and having her head forward!
Here in Brazil they go by brother and sister but after its the first name. for example (sister Glaucia) But the heat is killing me! we are hitting summer down here and its around 38 Cel. and raining rarely. Luckily it just rains at night! But I am loving it! Language is coming, slowly understanding more and speaking better I feel! I know I have Improved. Loved General Conference from what I understood... hahah! I listened to it in Portuguese. which was fun but I will print out the sessions and read them during the week. But I loved it! A little different listening in a different language and still see there mouth move. But I loved it and definitely felt the spirit. The candy here is weird! What they eat as candy for the USA its cough drops. this is about it for this week. The church is true where ever you are!
Btw, I plan to have a English class when I can speak Portuguese better. A lot of members want to learn and that can also be a missionary moment for non-members. But I will do this when I can speak better. (2-3 months) Love ya so much!!
Love ya with all my heart!!
