How are you! I am in Brasilia! I am teaching people! I am doing great! Yesterday was my last day in the MTC. I woke up at two thirty am and hopped on the São Paulo shuttle to the airport, and now I am here!
President and Sister Lundgren greeted us all at the airport. Brasilia is so much more beautiful than I thought it would be! Looking out the plane window and seeing the beautiful urban areas and seeing the beautiful government buildings was such an incredible moment! But it doesn't end there. We were driven back to the mission home and were fed an incredible steak and mango lunch. It was delicious! Quite frankly it reminded me a lot of Brother Morton's steak dinners (except Brazilian)!
Afterwards, we drove to the chapel where my two trainers were waiting for me. That's right, I’m in another trio! My companions names are Elder Kenneth and Elder Johnston from São Paulo and Salt Lake City respectively. They are faithful, solid hard workers and it is an honor to have been placed with them. We then hopped on the one and a half hour bus ride to Jardim Inga, our area, with about twenty five people on it. I stood and spoke to the entire bus about our purpose as missionaries and made contacts with individuals.
After we arrived in our area, I was immediately amazed by the beauty of the area. Every house is made of orange brick and orange shingles, and the ground is covered in orange desert dirt. To finish off the day, we taught some people and ate some chicken heart. Just writing to let you know all is well, and I am having a wonderful time. God is a worker of miracles. Every day here I see miracles. Remember what’s really important!
