Handwritten letter when he arrived at the MTC 8/1/07

Well it's here. I'm in the CTM. The work begins. I am so excited. My time here is going to be amazing. I Love it already. It is so great. The trip here went great, flights were all fine, a little cramped but I'll live. My companion is Elder Zundel from Ogden, Utah. He is a great kid. We will get along great. I'm so excited to be here. The town of Sao Paulo is very dumpy but the church is still true. Weather is great. Everything is fine. My first meal was beans and rice. I get to drink guarana everyday now. It's good stuff. Pass along to Justin that I love him and Savannah as well. Classes start tomorrow bright and early. I'm pumped, never have been nervous yet. Thanks for the letter Mom. I love you guys. This will be so awesome. The blessings you will receive will be tremendous. We get more Elder's tomorrow, native Brazilians. What great people they are. You walk down the street and get smiles and opas. They are just amazing people. Prep-day will be Tuesdays or Wednesdays. I'm pretty sure letters only take 7 days or so to get there so you will get this soon. (we didn't get it for like 3 weeks!) Read the back of this carefully so that you don't make a mistake and I have to pay taxes on stuff. Well I'm going to get back to work. I love you all. You're in my prayers. I bear you my testimony that the church is true and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. I testify that I've been called to serve in Brazil from a true and living prophet through the inspiration of God. Jordan hang in there bud. You're an amazing kid. There is no doubt in my mind that your true potential is so great. I love you Bro. and am praying for you. I challenge you to start reading the Book of Mormon again. It will help you I promise. Tell Meghan I love her and she is in my prayers. I love you guys. The church is true.
