We just got back from a Brazilian barbecue restaurant and it was super good. We weighed ourselves before and after and I gained a solid 3.5 pounds. Lots of meat, it was great. But you just need to be careful, apparently when Brazilians want to be cool they mix weird foods with strawberries. I went and tried a certain dish, which I thought would be dessert, because it had strawberries, but it was strawberries with lobster sauce. It reminded me of the time we went to that Dutch Christmas at Noah's and all the foods looked like desserts but everything had fish or eggs in it. Dirty Dutchmen.
Thanks so much for all of your letters. It's always great to hear from you and everything that's going on. It's weird to think that I'm going to turn 21 next week. I'm getting old, just like Dad always says. Dad doesn't even look old, he looks the same as he did ten years ago. Mom hasn't really changed too much, either.
Thanks for sending my pictures of Penny. I'm ready to meet her. But all in due time.
I've been having a great time with my companion. He's from Curitiba and he keeps telling me that I need to go visit him after the mission. We'll just have to wait and see. I would like to come back to Brazil at the end of July to see 4 couples that I taught get sealed in the temple, but we'll see how things go.
This week was good. We are working in the office, but not too much. We do our studies here in the morning, eat lunch at the mall or a local restaurant, and then making our way to our area. When President Brum needs something, we do it, but other than that, it's pretty chill here. Little by little me and Elder Zolet are figuring it out.
Last week we had a meeting with all of the zone leaders in the mission and me and Elder Zolet gave a training that I think President Brum really liked. It was a lot of fun, I like to give trainings because it's like an adrenaline rush of the Spirit.
Yesterday night I was coming from our area and Elder Zolet and I started talking about what marriage is gonna be like. Weird stuff. I told him about my plans to have 12 kids. It's gonna be awesome.
