Week Five

Hey Family,

Sorry this has be fast. The computers here ancient and My time is running short. I have been sick this past week. There is an illness going around the CTM. If someone would WebMD the symptoms and send them back to me that would be great. I have a bad cough and soar throat and when I cough, I cough up yellow gunk. I also have a stuffed up nose with the same colored gunk.

Today was a good day. I was able to go to the Campinas Temple, which is about an hour and a half away north of São Paulo. It is so beautiful there. I have pictures, but I cannot send them via email. I will mail Aly the SD card soon however. The temple sits on top of a hill just out side the Campinas city limits, and you can overlook the city from the grounds, it is really one of the prettier temples I have been to.

I have lost a total of 11 pounds since I started at the CTM. I am loving it. I feel great besides being sick out of my mind. I also forgot to tell you I had my AP and my DL give me a blessing and I am starting to feel a lot better I am not coughing nearly as much as I was the night before.

My district and I are starting the learn the first lesson in Portuguese. I am doing well, but we are going to be tested over it on Saturday so keep me in your thoughts and prayers that day.

Other than that nothing is new for me. I will talk to you all later. Love your favorite Elder,

Elder Caleb S. Carriere
