From May 2, 2016
This week was the coldest week on my mission. There were reports that it got as low as 12 degrees Celsius (53 degrees Farenheit). I caught a cold. I am shivering every day and I am wearing three layers. I never believed that it could get this cold here! But I am thinking in perspective about how I have accustomed to the heat here. I think that I have accustomed more that I realized.
Before I left I was in the summer in Oregon. I arrived here just in time to catch summer again at its worst . . . better yet in a drought. When it started to get cold in the capital of São Paulo, where I was, I was sent to Sorocaba, where winter didn’t happen all year; it was really hot. When it started to get cold in Sorocaba, I was sent back to the capital where it was turning to summer again. I lived that once again and then I arrived here where it was hot until this week. I am freezing every morning in the shower. Hahaha–I had forgotten this feeling of fresh cool air on my face. I have a feeling that going to Oregon and arriving in the fall is going to be hard.
I am teaching myself English again.
We had three baptisms this week in T’s family, about which I would love to explain, but it will have to be next week because of logistics and planning from this week.
I love you guys and I hope your week was awesome!!
