Jake is in the Middle on the left side of the Sister in the Torquoise.
Jake and a group of missionaries that he talked to before his mission. They are all Brazilian and they had a group text message going. Jake didn't really understand any of it, but they all remembered him when they finally got together again.
Looking for new pictures to draw.
A new planner...He was very excited about this.
"This bike is RJ´s next project!! These things are EVERYWHERE!! This is one of the nicer ones I've seen. ha-ha its so funny. They drive them, or pedal them around. :)"

A little bit from Jake's letter to us:
Scriptures are great. I've started starting my personal studies as fast as i can to read and study. Here's my morning. 6:30 I get up, pray, go and make some orange juice with 2 oranges, eat 2 bananas, then do a bunch of pushups, a couple situps, then shower. Then, it's like 7:00, and I get dressed and start studying. Personal study doesn't start until 8:00, so I get a bunch of extra time!! I'm working on memorizing the 100 seminary scripture masteries!! More about that in the journal. I explained conference in the journal, but it was very hard to understand. But I understood enough to get the gist, and then think about it. :) So most of what I learned was by the spirit. I heard a totally different conference than everyone else because I understood it one way, but that way wasn't right, but it was still good and Ii learned a lot. I'm going to download them in English to my pendrive right now.
Today I got two packages!! From September 9 and the 13. The Halloween package and the one with the baby Books of Mormon. Thanks so much!! And the talks from Brad Wilcox were a great idea!!! I was seriously thinking yesterday I wanted to download his talk "His Grace is Sufficient," but then it came in the mail today!! woot woot!! :) Thanks!! Thanks Janet!!
Mama asked him about a water Filter and this was his answer: Tell that mom NOT TO BUY A WATER FILTER. I'm pretty sure they do this at Sao Paulo too, but in the MTC I recieve a really nice one. Some missionaries drank pee through it. No joke, I saw the video. and I haven't even used it since being here. You get so used to floaties in your water you don't even think about it, and it really isn't even a big deal. :) But if he wants one, by all means. I haven't seen anyone who uses them.
I love you, mom!!! I love you all!! I hope you guys have another great week!!!
