Hey there!!! So today is my first P-Day so I get to send my first email! We went to the Sao Paulo temple this morning and the traffic in Sao Paulo is horrible so it takes forever to get there and back so I have a lot to do in very little time. So where to start. The plane ride was long, and I met up with 10 other Elders in Dallas making for a total of 12 with Elder Luke that I flew to Dallas with. We got here and met the rest of our district and got our companion assignments. My companion is Elder Eyre... from Cedar City, Utah. Imagin that. haha. There are six of us in our room. Me, Elder Eyre, Elder Johnson, and Elder Waldron. We also have two Brazilians but I don´t even want to attempt their names. I had a slight cold the past few days along with a few other guys in my district but I think it´s going around the CTM. I think due the the change in climate because I was ok until like a day or two ago. We´ve obviously started learning Portugese. It´s going slow but I´m slowly getting it. I have so much to do today that I may not get around to writing to everyone today. But I have a full P-Day next Tuesday so I´ll get everyone then. It takes we think about a month to get a letter there and back. So there could be a lot of delay. I also need Grandma and Grandpas address. Today has been the worst weather wise. It´s the hottest day so far and you feel like you are always sweating. I´m slowing getting use to the food. I only have 14 minutes left so I can´t include much more so I´ll type as fast as I can then tell you anything I miss next week. I played volleyball with some Brazilians the first night I got here and then someone broke the ball. So we played basketball with them and they are the funnest people every. They are always happy and funny. Right now we are working on prayers and testimonies in Portuguese. We are working on the first lesson and the first vision. The days seem slow until you sit down to write in your journal and then you realize how fast the time actually went. Everything so far seems like and feels like it´s directed at me. It´s the most neat and amazing feeling ever. Well my time is short. So I´ll try and get everything in next week that I missed. Love you all!!! Ask all the questions you have and make any requests for anything you want to hear. Love you!!!   Elder Wahl
