I love the other sisters that live with us. Its fun to have four together, we laugh so much and they save us when we forget the keys haha. Sister Morais is seriously one of the funniest people I´ve ever met. We work on English together and she helps me with my Portuguese. Oh Portuguese! Why do you have so many verb conjegations?? Thats definitely the hardest thing for me so far. Besides that, the language is coming right along. Im understanding most everything that people say. Only a few older people have really thick accents but you can usually guess at what they are saying. Just have to keep speaking and studying and I know it will come!
The food is wonderful! Its very simple and I´ve yet to encounter anything that I feel like I aboslutely cannot eat. There are tons of street vendors here and really good ice cream shops. I´ve heard that some of the other areas have strange food, but that Saint Antonio is a really good. I agree! Our zone is so awesome too; it´s us sisters, and two elders. We meet every week and our zone leader (who is American) always helps me with grammar which is so great.we are going to Salvador for a mission conference. I´m so excited!!! I will be able to see everyone from my CTM family!!!!!!!!!! ahh! And President and Sister Hart! They are the best! It´s going to be wonderful! Oh and guess who´s coming to visit us?! Sister Benedict!!! I finally get to meet her in real life!!!!!!!!!
Well, I hope everything is going so well at home. Continue to read your scriptures and pray together. There is comfort, strength and joy in doing so. The Lord is preparing things for you far greater than anything you can imagine. Trust Him. Follow His way. Remember Him in all that you do, and you will find happiness and peace. I love you all and miss you (but in a happy way:)) I pray for you everyday (in Portuguese). Talk to you soon!
