Letter 74: Another Week Gone

February 23, 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m gonna start something here. I’ll ask a question, and the first person that responds with the right (or close to right) answer gets a shoutout the next week. The question this week is something that even the Brazilians can’t answer. There’s a meat here in Brazil. It’s called ‘charque’. It’s pronounced ‘sharky’. And you ask the Brazilians, “what kind of animal does charque come from?” And you get answers anywhere from cow, to pig, to shark, to horse. So the question is: What animal does charque come from? (You can use Google if you need to).

Last P-Day we went to the beach to a broken down club thing to take some pictures. So we’ve got a bunch of pictures of that and all the fun we had there. But since then, it’s rained every day. It makes it hard to put clothes on the line to dry when it’s raining. But it works out in the end.

We don’t have much time this week, but I want you guys to know that I know that this church is true, and it’s my place here to help other people to learn that. And that’s what we’re trying to do. Even though some people don’t even care about what we have to say, it’s still our job to help everybody out. And in doing that, we help ourselves out. This is by far the hardest area of my mission so far, but it’s the area in which I’ve learned the most about life. It’s good to be here. 🙂

I love you all!
