(Week 3)
I haven’t been gone long enough for you to miss me yet, but i feels like I’ve been here for a few great months, not to much of report worthiness has occurred, learning tons of Portuguese, meeting great people from and going to places all around the world, and i have found a way to just have water fruit grains and vegetables, and i feel much better from that diet. oh and i love you guys and hope you are doing well there at home, oh and elder Brooks, he one that wrote to the girls has been hoping for a reply and i have a couple more letters from elders to send, Elder brooks is the one in the pictures with the darker skin, not the Columbian but the one with slightly spiked hair. i am still enjoying the gifts you guys sent me.
(Week 2)
I am so jealous of eve and aurora, that is supper cool, it feels like i have been here for a couple of great months even though its only been a couple weeks, i was called a district leader and i sent a letter saying as much but you will see this first I’m sure. Eve, Tawny, and Aurora all have quite a few admirers and everyone loves Enoch, the flag is hanging proudly in our class room where we spent 12 hours out of our day every day, the language is coming so quickly, we teach a lesson in Portuguese every night it seems. Also my first Tuesday devotional was great, I’m in the chior so i sang for Russel m Nelson who gave a great talk, i have also heard from on of the funniest women ever, she was an older lady that served a ton of missions, it was her 50 year anniversary since she first left to the Philippians. Oh and Eve in Portuguese is Eva, kinda cool. I’m trying to send pictures but have not been successful in uploading them. My district is still the best in every way, and they love your gifts to me, Also i am very grateful to David for his gift it is great and i hear that it will be needed with the downpours in Brazil. i love the temple here, and mountains surrounding the valley are breathtaking, i hope you continue to have joy and success there, and that your garden flourishes and produces much fruit and vegetables.
Love, Elder Inman
(Week 1)
Hey, This is my first letter as you know, i don’t have much time so this will be quick, I’m sorry i was not able to call on mothers day, when i leave the mtc i will be able to. This week has been so full and so quick, my first day we were just thrown into it, the food is ok, it tastes good-ish, but I’m not so sure how good it is for me, I’m probably going to be very fat when i get home, i have a district with 12 people, 8 elders and 4 sister, we are all going to Goiania which is cool, my companion is Elder Parkinson, he is taller than me and also of fun, we have spent just about every day in our classroom studying all day, Sunday ans Tuesday are nice we have more time to just slow down and visit the beautiful temple here in Provo. i have learned so much Portuguese in the gospel i cant believe I’ve only been here a week, our first full day here we taught an investigator, Vasco, in Portuguese and it was ruff, there was so much that we couldn’t understand and it was very confusing, the second time we taught him we testified more and tried to bring the spirit and it worked well, we got him to pray with us and to come to church with us, and study. hes a very willing investigator, but its hard to get him to gain his own testimony or to feel anything. the Portuguese is coming quickly and i have a very spiritual strong, goal oriented district, I’m singing in choir and we have had a great devotional over how to be a great missionary, and if you can find it i would suggest watching David Bednars talk from Christmas 2011, it was truly inspirational, i wish i was a faster typer but I’m not so i will say bye, i love you all very much, and hope you are receiving many blessings.
Love Elder Inman
