White House Branch

Me and Elder Ve.

     This transfer is only a 5 week transfer, it's going by really fast. It's already week 3 and already almost over. It's crazy. My comp, Elder Ve. is from M., Africa, and is 24 years old. He's got 6 months in the mish and is a really excited person. It's different, but good. This area's pretty sweet. It's what you would think of Brasil being. It's got a lot of trees, (forest) there are mountains on one side of the city, and from here you can see some cliffs. Also, there are a lot of iguanas, parrots (red, blue, and yellow), and toucans. Where we are working right now(there are always richer and poorer areas of cities) there are a lot of dirt roads and also dirt on the asphalt roads. The area is pretty big, it's two small cites. and there's a river that passes through our area and one of the cities is an island.

     The house where we're staying at just has the house on the property, it's pretty small. There's an area in front, but we don't use it and a tiny area behind that we also don't use. It's pretty cool here. All of the houses have huge gates to get in that you can lock. Also, all of the windows have bars on them to keep people from coming in.
There's a cool member that gave us papayas (mamão) and I'm eating a lot of it. it's pretty great here. and the other day I made banana juice. It was pretty good!

    It was great speaking with the fam and seeing you all! It'll be great to pass a few days with y'all and then going to byu to hang out with Hannah, Steve, Laura, and Rachel.
Have a great week!

 The toucans eat the fruit in the tree and hop from branch to branch, not flying around b/c they're so big.
