May 11, 2015 Koby's companion played guitar for David Archuleta in Chile!


         11 Months!!!

11 Months today!!! That means I am almost on the downhill part of the mission. I can see the top!

It was also really fun to talk with my family :)

The first thing that I noticed in this ward is that a lot of people speak English. About a week ago, they put in the newspaper that we are giving English lessons for free, so we have a ton of people coming to have this lesson. I taught the advanced class which was just teaching English from English. It went really well.

Last week, I learned how to open a coconut. It was really simple. Burn it, then throw it on the ground! Thank you Irmão Clovis :)

My shower is really different. In Brazil, the showers have an electrical cord that goes directly to the shower head. Is it safe?... I don´t know. Normally they work fine... Our shower head is a little broken. When we turn it on, we have to take a long rod and wack the shower head a few times until the electricity connects. Then, to turn it off, we have to use the rod to twist the handle because it has been electricuted during your shower and will give you a nice shock! 

My area is really rich. I thought that Pirassununga was rich, but then I got here and the houses have doubled in size! There are several private roads that we can´t go on....

My companion is really cool too. His name is Jiménez. He was starting to go professional in singing and guitar, but he decided to go on a mission first! Also, when he was in Chile, he played in the band with David Acheleta! He is on the videos of David singing! So cool. (David Archuleta served his mission in Chile where Jimenez lives.)

And awesome family :) (I was teaching the man piano)

skype time!


This is before Kyson got on Skype with us and Koby.

All of Koby's roommates that passed by the computer would stop and count the heads on the screen. Other countries don't have such big families as we do in the US.

An inside joke is Section 139 of D&C that has not been translated into Portuguese yet. That's why American's have more than 4 kids and Brasilian's don't. Section 139 tells you to have more than 4 kids. lol

In this picture, Carl is talking on the phone with Kyson while he tries to figure out his password to get onto Skype with us. Carl got a phone call from Florida, but answered it anyway. It was Kyson calling on an American's cell phone he had gotten in LA before he moved to Brazil with his Brasilian wife and baby.

They finally get to see each other and exchange greetings in Portuguese.

Kyson is showing us the view from the 16th story he is on. He is trying to let us see the lightning.

The zone leader, Kyson, had to take several phone calls while we were on our Skype call...


Kyson's host gave him the same candy that I got today from church...

Brady Bunch!

Kyson needs to know if that's a bald spot.
No, it's blonde hair and is invisible when it is short.

Chicken BBQ pizza.
He turned off the video while he ate it, but he ate his chocolate cake in front of all of us!!!!!
None of us had eaten, we left church early to eat before they called,
but then they called an hour early!

Kyson says he will be home before the next Mother's Day,

and Koby says he will be home 3 days AFTER the next Mother's Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
