Respotas Por Sua Perguntas (Answers for the questions)
Where is everyone in your district from:
Elder Bush: Idaho Falls
Sister Moss: Orem
Sister Walton: Wyoming
Sister Davis: Northern California
Sister Doyle: Pennsylvania
Gum: hahaha! That was awesome! (Jake asked mom to send him some mint gum. He didn't say what kind of mint, so we sent him 6 packages of different mint gums.)
Burning the Language Books: The kid that burned his books took a year of Portuguese, and he is SO smart. When he gets back , he'll be going to his senior year at BYU and he's 18 right now. He's a little weird, but he is super funny now that I have got to know him. Anyways, he's super good at Portuguese and he hates the books.
My language is awesome! We did TRC which is when a volunteer comes and we just meet with them, kinda like a home teaching. Elder Bush and I didn't even make a plan, we just talked to them, shared scriptures, and made them goals to help them come closer to God. All in Portuguese of course.
Here's a scripture I memorized in Portuguese:
Portanto, Que se console vosso coracao no que diz respeito a sino, pois toda carve este em minha maos; aquietaivos e sabei eu sou deus
Moma says: Which translates roughly to:
Thus, you can calm your heart regarding what was said about the sign, for it is all carved in my hands. Calm yourselves and know that I am God.
I LOVE IT! AND YOU GUYS!!
Love, Elder McKee
