I'm alive and in Brazil. I flew out Tuesday evening with one other sister. Coincidentally the other visa waiter that was living in my apartment in New York. I'm in the mission office right now, and just met the President. We would have met him yesterday, but he was visiting some of the far reaches of the mission. Yep, so, I arrived yesterday at about 5 pm. Im safe, I love you.... the mission president doesn't speak any English, I don't think my companion does either. Its going to be an adventure and I'm super excited.
Love you both,
P.S. I'm going to serve in Penapolis....its 4 or 5 hours from the mission office by bus.
