Serving for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Brazil Natal Mission
Kim leaves the MTC and arrives in Joao Pessoa!
This is the street Kim lives on.
I can´t believe I´m here! Those first few hours all felt like a dream! There were 4 other Americans and 8 other Brasilians traveling to João Pessoa (super nice that we were at the airport with Brazilians who could speak Português to figure everything out) The flight was about 3 hours. President and Sister Hall were waiting for us at the airport. They are soo nice!!
We ate paninis (I love them here! I wonder how much they eat paninis because we had them in Sao Paulo breakfasts as well) I´m with a Brazilian companion! Todas pessoas Americano receberam Brazilian companions! She doesn´t speak any English--so i´m going to learn muito rapido! (I can understand when they are using gospel vocab--but when the conversation goes elsewhere i don´t understand)
It´s funny mom because I remember when you told me about your first experience when you got to Spain and everyone talks about how "this is not the language I learned in the MTC" Well... this is the same language and I STILL don´t understand it. hahaha :) Mas eu vou!
Sister Hall made a delicious dinner for all of us! Best I´ve had since being home. By the way.. in the Nordeste area they don´t have a daylight savings time, so I think we´ll be 4 hours apart when you change.
I don't know how to even describe it here! The city of Joao Pessoa seems actually relatively calm compared to Sao Paulo-the buildings aren't as tall and big, not a TON of people. The sun sets here at like 5:30 and it's super bright at 6 am! The name of my city is called Cabedelo. It's about 30 minutes away from Joao Pessoa. So I think you're good sending mail to the mission home and it shouldn't take too long for me to get.
It is hot here! My companion and I had companionship study this morning. I just practiced teaching the whole time! We switched off. I think I'm ok haha. We're teaching people tonight! She says I'm doing it right in Portugues, so I think I'll be ok. Trevor sent me a way to invite someone to baptism in Portugues. I wrote it down and practiced. Então muito obrigada Trevor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
