May 2011-May 2013

Kevin has been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has been assigned to labor in the Brazil Londrina Mission for two years and will be teaching the gospel in the Portuguese language. Kevin will not be using the internet while serving as a missionary. This site will be updated by me, his mom, as I recieve his weekly email letters and pictures. Enjoy!

Sweating in the City

life in the big city is good! its basically the same just we waste a bunch of time of our p-day when we want to go downtown to buy stuff

Congrats Jessica! that's way awesome! i knew you would do really well at BYU, its really a great experience and if you apply yourself you will definitely reap the rewards. you should try to get a job working in the math lab or something, BYU pays well and its a pretty simple job. i spent a lot of my free time there. . .

i miss the cold. i miss the snow. i miss going a whole day without sweating.

but im getting used to it here. i´ve already been in brazil for 8 whole months. thats 1/3 of the mission. the time is going by really fast. i´ve learned a ton, and going to learn a lot more, but now the hard work is to apply all the principles that i'm learning every day to actually improve my teaching.

i loved the package the shirt and shorts were well received by me and elder p as well as the American candy and peanut butter. now i just have to find a decent jam to go with  it. right now im just eating it with syrup on bread. bom de mais! (good of more!)

i got 3 letters from Rebecca yesterday that were sent January 3rd! that's only two weeks! i really love being here near the mission office! now i just got to take advantage of it and write you guys letters. . .if i don't nap through p day again (which isn´t very likely)

its funny to see the couch rotation always happening, but as of yet the green couches in the front room are still there. those were a good investment.
we´ve got a couch in our apartment, but its really terrible so its only good use is for holding heaps of dirty clothes.

that's it for this week, if you were wondering we had interviews with the president yesterday so our p day was switched for today

Love you all!

o i also sent the sd card of all my pictures so it should arrive in a couple of weeks.
