In the beginning.....and now!

For those of you who are wondering about the weight loss rumors and Elder Pellegrini, I think pictures speak louder than words.  Here's a photo taken the night before Matt left (July 18, 2011) and one taken last week.  I think he's been working hard! What do you think?

August 27, 2012

Hello family,

I’m very sorry that my emails have sucked these past few weeks, but I have been running like a mad man trying to get everything done. People say that missionaries have 1 hour to email their family. It’s a lie!  Missionaries have one hour to email their family, their mission president, the secretaries, and everyone else in the mission and it just runs out so fast this is the fastest hour that I have during the week, is the 1 hour to send email.

Well this week was good.  We had ALOT of rain and that kind of sucked but it’s alright.  It rained so much on Sunday that we didn’t have anyone come to church-- investigator wise at least. But I love this area.  It is so good.  The lunch that people give us here is amazing. Yesterday we ate prime rib, it was so good! I remembered the last dinner I had before I came on the mission.

We taught a lot of people this week. It was way cool.  We found some new people and all that. We went to a huge Catholic church last P day. It was awesome.  It’s called Convento da Penha. It’s on a huge mountain in Vila Velha. It’s way cool up there.  I fed monkeys on the top of it and it has a lot of like churchy things.  So I’m pretty positive Dad will like it because he liked all that stuff in Italy haha.

Well this week I’ve learned that it is a lot easier to have a comp who knows how to do everything. But it is cool to teach your comp how to do things too. I’m really enjoying this area. It’s really good.  The members are awesome and all that stuff.  It’s just hard to memorize the streets because it’s a huge city.  But that’s about it. I love you guys and have a great week!
