4th of July Email from Ancheita

Adam's email today, my questions are in brackets.

Happy 4th of July!

[So you don't have a mailing address there in Ancheita?]  I don't have a mailing address, just the mission home address.

[Did you get to perform the baptism?]  No we haven't done the baptism yet, that will be this week.

[Did you get to teach anyone this week?]  I am mostly just learning how to say the lessons right now so what I am doing is bearing my testimony of what is being said in the lessons that are taught.

[What area of Utah is your companion from?]  He is from Herriman.

[What have you been eating lately?]  I have been eating a lot of beans and rice, and a bunch of different kinds of meat that are really good, I think that I ate some kind of stomach the other day.

[How much do you walk each day?]  We probably walk pretty much everywhere, so probably anywhere from 3 to 10 miles a day.

[What was your best experience this last week?]  My best experience this past week was being at the zone conference with my new mission president and listening to him speak, and then afterwards bearing my testimony in Portuguese, even though I had to write it down before I went up.  I almost couldn't finish it, the spirit was there that strongly.  I am glad that I did that.

I miss you all and am looking forward to the package.  Tell everyone that I say hi and that I miss them. I will have to send pictures through the regular mail cause I brought the wrong connector.  I am going to try and find an adaptor to read my card here, and then I will be able to send you pics over email.  I miss you all.  Love you all.

  1. Hi! This is Tim Turley, Elder Turley's Father. We're so excited our sons are companions. Adam has been a great blessing to Nathan. Here is what he said recently: "You guys have no idea what a blessing my companion is. He is helping me have that intense desire and love I had at the MTC and in Maruipe. I’m excited because I’m going to end my mission with this same fire."

    I went to President & Sis. Pickett's Homecoming today...it was great. Our email address is turleymeister@gmail.com
