I can't believe it will be three weeks tomorrow! This week was a hard one. I was super homesick for a few days and just felt ready to give up. I feel bad about having those thoughts. I'm fine now, but something really had me going for a few days!
I love our second teacher (our first investigator)! I had an interview with him yesterday. He is just so sweet! He's just one of those people that is super easy to talk to! I really hit the jackpot on teachers. Our other teacher has only been home for about four months, but whenever Portuguese speakers hear he is my teacher they talk about lucky I am and how great he is. They are right!
I didn't do the dips this week. I will try to set the record next week. I did fifteen pull ups....I know, not very many, but I hadn't done them since February and I'm used to a gymnastics bar and not a slippery padded one!
The food here is okay....not great, but not bad. I find plenty to eat because there is plenty of fruit and salad. There is quite a bit of breaded meat, but the breading comes off easily. I can usually find something that isn't breaded for lunch and dinner. It's definitely cafeteria food and I just haven't had to deal with that before!
This week -all in all- wasn't bad. I didn't mean to start off on a bad note! It was hard for a few days there, but I know this is where I need to be and the Lord is helping me through the rough days. I miss you! I miss having someone who understands me so well!
