Portugal is Awesome! Letter from Elder Peacock...2/28/2011

Ok, I can't decide if I like Deron Williams or not anymore!  But who cares, I don't know who he thinks he is.

But Portugal is awesome!  And my new companion Elder Pilz from Germany is awesome, and is helping me so much!  He knows President Uchtdorf really well and they use to be in the same ward before Pres. Uchtdorf moved to Utah.  The language is really hard right now.  It kind of feels like I started all over because the people talk so fast -- uber fast, so it's hard.  But I'm learning more and more each day and I can usually say what I want when I need to.  We have been so busy!  Like I haven't even had time to unpack my bags yet.  The flight was so long and I didn't sleep at all and I don't know why.  President and Sister Walton are so awesome!  I love them so much already, they are so ridiculously nice it's crazy!  It's sad they will only be here until June.  But Portugal is sick, for the most part everybody is super nice.  My area is called Matosinhos and it is just north of Porto right on the coast.  The weather has been amazingly perfect so far.  We went to chuch yesterday and I met all the members -- there are only about 75 members is this ward but they are so flippin sweet and nice.  Ha, and everybody thinks I'm just way dumb and always tries to help me, but it's funny.  Just been working hard and staying way busy but it's fun.  And yes, Elder Pilz speaks english he even was a foreign exchange student and went to Utah!  I'm taking lots of pictures and I will get that sent off soon.  I love you all so much.

Love Elder Peacock
