Oi from the CTM

Wednesday September 23, 2009

Oi fam,

How is it going? I am learning some Portuguese. Hey it is my first p-day, it is so much fun. Me and my companion went with two guys in our district and ate a hamburger. It tasted so good. I liked it most of all because I could eat it and not feel sick afterwards. :) Hey this week has been the best. First when we were in the airport at Dallas me and some elders were eating and someone came up to us and asked more about the church. We gave her a pass along card. It was the best feeling ever. Then the plane ride was so long. I sort of slept that night. Hey I have to tell you about the fun I have had here. My companion is the best. His name is Elder Olson. He is leaving I am going to miss him. It has been fun getting to know him. I went to the temple today. It was the best feeling ever. The nice thing was that the endowment was in English. Hey I don't know about the toilets. The ones in the CTM are power flushers, they just go straight down. I am loving it here. I am glad that we finally got a chance to get out of the MTC. Well hope everything is going well. Hey sign up for . It only cost like a dollar for you guys to send. It is free for me. For gym we played volleyball. My district leader Elder Brewer from Queen Creek Arizona said I am the best server ever. Hey I got a jersey the team is Palmeiras. The jersey is really sweet. Last night there was something that got to me and I farted in the room and it made the whole thing stink for about five or six minutes. You guys would be proud. The guys in the room could not believe I had so much power. Hope everything is going well. Everything is going well in Brasil. I can't believe that it has been a week. The days go by slow and the week has gone by fast. Thanks for all of the prayers and keep praying for me. O I forgot to tell you that my room is on the top 6th (7th) floor because the bottom is the T floor. I don't need to get exercise because I get it going up the stairs. Hey at Cheney's cookies they have computers and I pay to use them. There is not a time limit. Well I got to go. Hey I forgot to tell you guys about my teachers. The morning is a 24 year old girl named Irma (sister) Camila. She speaks pretty good English and I like learning from her. She is the best. The afternoon one is Irma Elias. I don't like her as much. She has only been here for a month and she really doesn't know English. Hey I can say my prayers and my testimony in Portuguese. Hey the other night was really cool because I got to help give my companion a blessing. I anointed him and Elder Jeppson did the blessing. The reason we gave Elder Olson a blessing was because he was feeling really homesick. He would have these panic attacks at night and he couldn't breath very well and we felt it would comfort him. I sat next to Elder Olson from Dallas on the airplane. I did not know he would be my companion. He is from Provo. The guys in my district: Elder Shelley, Brewer, Jeppson from Salt Lake, Olson, Hucksferd from Indiana, Thornley from Tremonton, Anderson, Hughes and Fuller. It is the best district ever. See you guys later. I miss you guys very much. Thanks for the prayers and support I have been getting, it has helped so much. Take care.

Elder Shelley
