Enseada - Week 4

This week...went by really fast. It was the penultimate week, because this transfer is only 5 weeks long. And then a transfer of 6 weeks, and then one of 4, and then President Cabral is leaving! Crazy, right?

On Thursday, we had a conference with the Cabrals about that missionary transmission that happened back in January, it was pretty good. Other than that...not too much. Normal week. 

Me and Elder Melo have really been getting along, it's nice. Lots of jokes and humor, it's been a nice change. Well, last transfer was good with that too. But still. It makes a difference when you get along. And Elder McCain has been telling me all about the story he's writing. It's AWESOME. He's a really good author. But I'm sworn to secrecy, unfortunately :) I'll get an autographed copy when he's famous though. He's been a good friend too. He's getting better, he's learning quick. Well, it doesn't seem like that, but when he looks back he'll realize that it was fast. And this has made me more grateful for my trainer, Elder Richards. He was always really good about helping me with the language and the inherent difficulties of a mission. Something that Elder McCain's trainer...leaves something to be desired. He just doesn't understand/try to help Elder McCain with that kind of thing. Which frustrates me. But I guess it was meant to be. 

The worst thing about this's been so hot. Seriously. It's an oven here. It's been completely sunny for the last week probably, if not more, without rain. It's awful. I'm getting sick of it, I'm ready for winter to get here.

The best thing...has been just the getting-along-ness with me and Elder Melo. I don't get stressed out as much. And getting along with Elder McCain too, he's funny :) We don't get along with Elder Farias (Elder McCain's trainer), but...I don't know. He's just not that easy to get along with. I'll try to do better though. 

Anyways, that was pretty much my week! Any questions? :) Have a great week! I love you more than coxinha! :D Which is a big deal, trust me ;)
