Grandma Marta gave me $100 to put into your account for your birthday. I want to pay for whatever you want to buy and send home from Brazil - so.... have you done any shopping lately? You need to get busy, buddy! Okay! I´ll try to buy some stuff today! Thanks Grandma!
You need to let me know, when you talk to your mission president this week, if he is ok with us coming down there to pick you up. I can start working on visas, but eventually we need to know where you are going to be when you finish in November so we can arrange for a hotel. So, try to make sure it's OK with your president. I hear some mission presidents discourage it. I think I´ll talk to him this week... I think.... maybe Wednesday.
Is there anything you need me to send? I promise, no more snacks! If you need sunscreen, deodorant, toothpaste... anything you can't get down there, just let me know. I think I´m good for now. I don´t live in the middle of the jungle where almost nothing arrives here..... more or less...
How did the Visa renewal go? Did you go to the police station there? Was it scary at all? No, it wasn´t scary. it was normal. They just scanned my thumbs, took a picture, measured my height. I think I´m 6 ft now..... I think... I hope.
Can you please send some pictures?! We've had quite the dry spell lately... but totally understand! Just do what you can, but we love getting pictures of you! The pics are there, you´re welcome!
