Monday January 20, 2014

Alright so this week will have to be super quick but not much has happened again. Rained some, so I had to buy a new umberella because the last one got destroyed in the storm in december. It's super hot here though, idk how hot but it feels way hotter then normal. But other then that we taught a lot last week, worked a lot, and walked a lot. We had a baptism last week in our district and that day was tough. One hour before the baptism he calls me andsays he (the missionary) needs a car to take the investigator to church....I was in the middle of a lesson. So I had to run out and call every one I knew that had a car. Eventually we got her there but it was just one of those times that you'll look back one day and laugh. My phone literally blew up that day becasue every one was calling me and so this week I don't have any minutes to call any one. But It's all going well still. Learning tons and working hard. I have been in the mission for 5 months now. Time is going by so fast but at the same time, I still have a ton of time left. It's weird to think that some of my friends now have less than a year in the mission left, all the sisters I Know from college will go home this year. Time is flying fast. We have transfers next week. But I think I'll be staying here for one more transfer. I'll find out sunday but we have interviews with the President tomorrow so that will be exciting, the last one we had was when I was 3 weeks into the misson. I feel like the thing that will be funny is that he will say to me "I can't read your emails" I write him in english because I heard he prefers english but I also heard from some other people that my letters are the hardest for him to read. But that's all right, One day, I'll be able to write porugtuese and them there won't be problem.
We found out about the new president last week. He comes in june or july and he is from salt lake city. Other then that I don't know much else. It will be different having a new president but I honestly don't think much will change. We will still talk to him in portuguese. Well other then that not much has happened. It's hot. I'm eating a ton. I got boots, a member gave them to me. They actually are a little big but they will last a while so I still have a ton of time to look for shoes. Scripture of the week is...2 nephi 5. Idk why but 2 nephi 5.
I love you all and miss you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love Elder Simonsen
