Okay so I am given a short time here to inform you that I have safely departed the CTM and am currently at the mission office of Sao Paulo Interlagos, safe and sound. President Dalton also wanted me to inform you that “my captors are treating me kindly“. I have way too many books but I imagine I can get rid of some of the language study books in a year. My new companion is Elder Neves, this is his last transfer so I only get him for 6 weeks, he was a Zone Leader before but he wanted to train an American his last transfer. I am the only new American in this mission. My P-Day is now Monday. Now I have to go to work, and make it to my area. Hope all’s well at home, will email again, this time hopefully with pictures, on Monday.
