A Quick Letter...3/14/2011

I am loving Portugal!  It is so awesome and we have been working so hard and the ward here in Matosinhos is so awesome!  The people are so nice and they love the missionaries.  Every Sunday we are like the first ones there and we stand at the doors and get to greet everybody and it is like one of my favorite parts of the week.  Ha, the people here are so friendly and love to talk.  All you have to say is "Bom dia, como foi sua semana?" (good morning, how was your week?) and they will talk and talk.  But I'm learning lots and they love to help and encourage me, and they don´t even feel bad about correcting me -- I actually think they like it, but it's nice and it helps.  It's pretty easy for me to not get down.  Things get hard and doors get slammed in your face, but it's easy to keep going because you have the spirit pushing you and always with you and every day you have to work your butt off so you can feel good about not wasting the Lord´s time.  But I truly love it!

Love,

Elder Peacock
