I have reached the MTC safely! It was a really fun journey and I can’t wait to send some pictures. I am safe and so ready to get out there and start working. I feel bad that you guys might be sad about me leaving because everything on my end has been absolutely spectacular! Sao Paulo is beautiful and I love the girls that I am with. I keep reading every single billboard…I am trying to just soak it all in. [*She studied Portuguese in college.] I seriously cannot believe that I am actually here. I have a perpetual grin on my face. I love you guys!! Keep it up, and keep the faith!
