Fingerprinted...just in case!

Jed went to the policia federal (police station) to get fingerprinted today just in case he commits a crime in Brazil. Last Wednesday myldsmail was down and that is why no e-mail last week. He got the package I sent to him on Saturday and asked for more fruit snacks. I told you all that fruit snacks are on the bottom of the food pyramid for him! Here is a paragraph from his e-mail:

ok... now on to my life...this last week i have been thinking "i wish i would have gone state-side or at least english speaking" cause seriously...i just want to go to work...the mtc is not where it´s at...the languge is not coming as easy as i would have kills me...every day. other than that things are going pretty good...i´m seriously tired all the time...all of it! comp is great...were working really well together. last week we got brazillian roomates...thats a is from santa maria and the other one listens to punk music...the one from santa maria doesnt speak a lick of english...but he´s really smart with the gospel...the other one...we just constantly brawl...he calls me nerd and i call him feio...these things happen...anyway...i have been here a really has flown by...i really want to be out in the field...not here...any way...funny story...the other night i did dream in portugese...couldn´t understand a word of it...nothing...whatever...

Feio is ugly in Portugese. Thank goodness for Babel Fish! He's been in the MTC 1 month today. Again today we were able to e-mail back and forth a bit this morning and he said that the homesickness comes and goes but overall he is not homesick which was good to hear. It's good to hear that he is so ready to be out in the field teaching.

Thanks for stopping by...
