Actually I havent seen andrew yet. I will see him on wednesday then again on friday. We are having meetings with Elder Aidukaitis (The "one must not roam through garbage" April 2014 conference guy) and I am super excited for that.
So before leaving Registro I went to this orthodontist who obviously didnt know what she was doing. She glued it on but put glue over the retainer instead of under it. Later as I was eating on the bus, I bit and off came the glue... Luckily she didnt charge anything! A lot of people say that I should be able to just get it removed... Is that an option or should I get it reglued here in the big city?
Sister Cabral is the best. She gave us our study for this month and I would like to share it with you. Maybe you guys can do a FHE about this: https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2007/04/the-tongue-of-angels?lang=eng
I have been trying to apply this in my day to day work and it is awesome. I am using less slang and speaking more appropriately (speed, pronunciation, and tone). This has brought me more maturity and more respect from others. We taught a man who is 60 and said that I speak as if I was 50 because of the words that I use and how I use them to convey the message. I dont have to talk like an old man but a disciplined tongue brings respect and reverence and makes it easier for the Spirit to testify of the truth. It was a great testimony builder for me. The effects of this were felt before I studied this talk but it has helped me to "man up" like President asked me to. I am very grateful that he said that to me.
I dont feel bad for this guy who has to sit for 10 hours without a cell phone. I sat at home all day yesterday with just scriptures, church manuals and phase 10. I havent played phase 10 since I played it with you years ago and I won. You would have been proud ;) But who wouldnt win when your mom is known as Mrs. Milton Bradley ;)
My new companion is Elder de Lima. He is 10 months in to his misison and is looking to change. He has to change some attitudes but I am trying to show him why he needs to change and that it is possible. He is awesome and we will have a great time together. There are 2 more americans in my house. One has 5 months and the other is from Andrews group but got here 6 months ago. They both speak a ton of english and need to practice their portuguese a lot. I am being pretty strict with them because they really need the practice. But it will all work out!
I love ya mom! Have a great week and check behind the couch for Sadie-bombs.
