I haven’t been able to email anyone yet because I was in the Provo, Utah Missionary Training Center (MTC) and my Preparation Day or Pday, which is the only day we get to email, wasn’t until Tuesday. Well it turns out that on Monday at 4 o’clock in the afternoon I was told that I was leaving to go to the Sao Paulo MTC. I was to leave at 4 am the next morning. I was not able to have a P-Day until today. I was able to go to the temple in Brazil for the first time and it was amazing. It was so gorgeous. I LOVED it. Well, the day I got here, I was put in a class with people that have been here for 4 weeks. I have only been here for a little bit over a week so I was so confused. Ha-ha they are giving me a companion on Tuesday. She will come from the Provo MTC. I am so excited. Hopefully we will be put in a class that’s at our level. lol Brazil is gorgeous. the plane ride made my feet swell. apparently that is common. lol I didn’t know because I don’t fly in planes on a regular basis... but my companions are great. They are so nice and so helpful. They even had to move all of their stuff into another room just for a week because of me... I felt so bad, but Brazilian life is so laid back and relaxing. Pday is the busiest day of the week. There are only about 20 computers and about 100 people that have to use them so I only get about 30 minutes to email everyone. so my mom decided to take over and just forward my one email a week to everyone on the email list. I want everyone to know how much fun this is! I thought it would be so boring. It is very difficult but that’s what makes it so fun. I like a little challenge. I am learning Portuguese little by little. I have to get off soon but I wanted to bare my testimony in Portuguese. Eu sei que o evangelho de Jesus Cristo e verdadeira. Eu sei que Joseph Smith e o profeta. Eu sei que eu soa aqui estar a missionaria por a igreja de Jesus Cristo dos santos dos ultimos dias. Eu sao animados ser aqui. Eu amora meu pai celestial e eu sei que Ele amor meu. Em nome de Jesus Cristo amem.
I love all of you guys so much and I hope I can write more next week. I cannot wait to be able to speak Portuguese fluently. I will write you guys soon! Hopefully!
Love Sister Taylor.
