I have to say that picture of Daniel is so cute. Good lookin´ kid. So this week was ok. I feel like I´m smashing my head against a brick wall with the language. I feel like because I know very few words I teach the lesson the exact same way each time and that it really is starting to lose its significance. it´s like I´m giving a memorized speach every time. but I guess that´s how it has to go until i learn the language. i am learning, but at a very slow rate. So how´s every thing at home looks like you´re having a lot of fun. oh my companion really likes my ring and scriptures and he wanted me to ask you if you could get some for him. i know its way expensive so you don´t have to, but i promised him I would. So after my mission I´ll just send some to his home or something. I feal really bad for it but I know quads are expensive by themselves and with the price for sending stuff to Brazil I figure you probably won´t. Oh but I was wondering with your next letter if you could send a printed copy of Elder Holland´s two talks one the Book of Mormon that he gave at conference awhile back. i really liked it and wanted to read it again. So the work is going ok. One of our investigators who was taught pretty much all the lessons by missionaries two months ago, smoked again so that´s great. There is this one family who is a part member family( the wife is a member) who I love visiting and teaching. the husband looks like Mario and is so funny. Honestly though, this last week has been tough. I remember laughing at an older Elder who said your first three months will be terrible, I´m not laughing now. All in all though i´m really enjoying the experience. I know that after a few months of working I´ll know the language and be really enjoying the work. Oh also, if possible could you send printed pictures of the family and the area, because all I have is the wallet sized photo and my companion shows pics to some people when we´re teaching about families. Also I think every six months I just send my photo card home instead of putting them on the computer because it is extremely hard. I don´t even know if you got my lastt photos. Anyway that´s it for now. Love you all lots. tchau.
