I'm on!

I will be buying now shoes later today. My shoe fell apart while walking to the LAN House today... Yes, this means I have to continue using them for today, but it's not bad.

So, I'm glad that Lianne Jenson made it home from her mission in Brazil safely. How was she able to get out of Vitoria? Armed cars? Did she give a talk in sacrament?

I need to take a picture of our chapel. It is the most beautiful church building, other than temples.

My companion, Elder Freire, is good. We live with another set of missionaries, Elders Campo and Nascimento in an apartment building on the fifth floor. We live at the Condominio Vitta Club. The address is Rue Jau 51, Osasco, SP, Brasil. Bloco A Apartmento 51. Four missionaries are in one ward.

I called Sister Thomas about my hands and my feet. After a little while talking with her, she passed the phone to President Thomas who then told me to go to a major drug store to buy something with betamethasone for my hands and something with Miconazol for my feet. I had already used up the powder that was packed in my first aid kit from home, and I bought some powder here called Tenny's spe, which I am using now.

I have not been able to eat every meal because of a lack of food in the house. I will be buying some later today. The lack of food is because of the transfer and not having time to buy food. P Day is the day before transfer day, and it would be difficult to take the food with me when I am transferred because I don't have room to carry it. Sometimes we stop at a member's house for dinner, but not every night. Yes, the elders do share their food. Yeah, its pretty difficult.

That's too bad the package you sent is being returned to the United States. Oh... I learned a secret about sending packages. Put a lot of photos on the box of Mary, Catholic photos or photos of churches, Generally customs will let the box pass.

I sent photos with me, Edilson, Rita, and Lehi. Edilson was serving his mission when the church changed the logo to bring out the name Jesus Christ. The photos of him and his family were taken in the last area before I was transferred last week.

What do you think about my shoes?

I will be buying new shoes later today. This happened while walking to the LAN House today...

Dear parents and bishops of Sao Paulo West Missionaries,

We want you to know that in this next week all the missionaries will have their P-day on Tuesday, because they are going to the Temple. And they won't be able to access e-mail because all of the computer labs will be shut down because of the Carnival holiday here in São Paulo so the next time you will get to talk with them will be March the 6th.

You shouldn't worry, they are safe.

Thank you.
Best regards,

Tylor would love to hear from you: tylor.houghtaling@myldsmail.net
