Hello erreone

mom, im sorry that everyone is sick! its not fun anymore getting sick, like it was when i was little and it was an excuse to not go to school :) just kidding.. i laughed at my computer screen hearing about the t shirt jenny made for alayna for her birthday. it is hilarious. the imortant part is that you get rest, its better to have 2 days in the house and 5 days of 100% (after getting better), than 7 days of 50%. every time i hear about the ward, it sounds like i dont know anyone anymore haha. im excited too for michelles call! and that means i will likely be getting your package at transfers, in 2 weeks, because its going to the mission office. 

dad, i will find the information for chelsea and i will send it to you guys. i think she has to know so that she can work out my plane ticket, and not buy one that i wont take. i think a car would be better too, you would just need to figure out how it works to drive in another country, because i dont know if its true but i hear my drivers license here doesnt count for anything, but that could just be people who are anti american. that sounds like a great time at the penn state game, with the weather and all. try to find out what the name of his mission is! because i know people who are from the majourity of brazil missions who are serving with me now, so ask him next time you see him. nhl lockout? once again, sounds like im not missing too much i guess. im sorry its happening, but better now than next year! also, that picture on the bus is indeed a goodie.

joseph, sounds like the pregnancy is coming along well. i glad she has found a routine that she can stick to that will help her out to not feel terrible. sounds like the career trail is going well! im excited for you to have a career and all, we are all growing up so much! thats good to have callings in the primary to give you guys all the kid experience possible. let me know how it goes next week with the talks! and yes please on the photos! byeee

michelle, i love you! this week is THE week, the week that you send off your papers, and then we all eagerly wait to hear where you are going! i cant say it well enough how excited i am that this next step is going to happen. i got a letter from you this week, and it sounds like everything is great up there in the big rex. i also still havent gottten your package yet, but it happens, its just the brazil mail system, which is sometimes very fast and sometimes slow. i love you! keep up being the best, and i am going to send a big ol letter to you today :) bye!

onto everything else!

well this upcoming thursday we are going to be blessed with a mission tour by Elder Carlos A. Godoy, one of the seventy. he is awesome, was here when Elder Cook was, and everyone is way excited! i hear that mission tour is specific for our mission, so its going to be very interesting to hear the advice of a seventy specifically for our mission. we will do the same sort of thing with Elder Cook, wake up thursday like 2 or 3 am and take a 2 hour van trip to londrina, where we will have the conference and then come back. the difference this time is that it wont even be a bus, it will be one of the vans comparable to that which we took to gettysburgh that year. yes, i brought it up haha. that van was packed! and seeing as how we have 10 elders and 4 sister missionaries, it is going to be packed as well. 

i got to go on a division with the missionary i trained in marilia, elder Glover! hes in our zone, as ive mentioned, but he is in a city 2 hours out of maring√°. so me and one other missionary took the trip out there to stay with them for one day, and i got to work with him, reconnect with him, and see how his portuguese improved alot in the 3 months i didnt see him. it was really nice, its like seeing really old friends to have these kinds of encounters on the mission! woo.

so, because i have finished jesus the christ in english, i have officially started in portuguese. it is wayy difficult. the vocab is already rough in english, so im basically reading jesus the christ and the english portuguese dictionary at the same time, looking of so many words so constantly. but thats ok!

it is HOT here. do you remember when we talked with a woman who serve in portugal at the hill cumorah pagent, to talk about portuguese? she said it was soo hot there in portugal that she had a spray bottle she would constantly be spraying her and her bed and such, well i remembered that this week, because we are doing exactly that. its the 4 of us in a room with one window, and the day in the sun is difficult without needing to explain, but the night it tough! but all is well, i sit there with a 2 liter of water next to my bed, and usually drink all of it before the night is over. haha

thats all i can say this week, but until next week! i love you guys, and i will write more next week. until then!

Elder Hoskin
