Elder Tyler Fullmer – Chicken hearts… it’s what’s for dinner

So we do eat a lot of Brazilian type food here at the CTM and its not very good, says our teachers and I have to agree.  Irmao Bonifacio took us out, well showed us and we payed, to a Brazilian bbq and it was so good. I’m still full from all the food. I ate chicken heart and wild boar today for the first time and Irmao said that there are certain ones down south that sell ostrich and alligator.

Speaking of need,  I want you to send me my Timbers scarf, cause the Brazilians’ here don’t understand what it really is, and then they see a picture and freak out. Haha. So that should come in the next pkg please…. oh and how much is on my card cause yes we shop and send things outside of the CTM on p-days.

I loved my Easter goodies and good to know it takes 3 weeks, but that kinda sucks.

So we went out just right outside the CTM and just talk to people. We had an hour to walk around and just talk to everyone. Either this week or next week we go out to the full on city and do the same thing. We have a good area that we can just walk around and see the people and buy things.

My days are: 6am wake up, 7am study, 8am breakfast, 830am class, 1230 lunch, 1330 study, 1530 gym, 1700 dinner, 1800 class, sleep 2230. And we do that everyday, except Sunday.  Sundays are the same schedule as home, and then we have devotionals domingo and Tuesday.

Yes I am writing a journal,  but nobody is reading them till I’m dead.  I’m pretty sure i reanswer a lot of questions in these emails, but oh well.

My comp doesn’t leave early anymore, but we don’t know if he´ll still be my comp they might switch people around.

So I don’t go though the temple in Portuguese,  I know that’ll disappoint dad.  We do it in English and guess what. I was reading out of genesis and  6 pages fell out of the binding I was so mad.

Your Easter stuff was well appreciated.  That tie was pretty amazing.

Oh, i forgot  to tell you, every house has a fence with spikes and we have like 8 guards here, haha, so I’m safe…. and just a fun fact,  I’ve gained 10 to 15 pounds haha.

You guys need to tell me more about people from home. I miss getting news from you guys.

From Elder Fullmer

**Karli’s note***

He’s killing me…I keep asking  asking if he’s getting our letters, and if so getting them daily or in big lumps. He mentioned at some point that he had gotten some letters, but between the three of us here, we send a letter every single day.  The thought that he’s not getting them is making me crazy….sigh.  Oh and I told him I think it will take 3months to get packages down to him not 3 weeks….we just sent our first package off, I’ll send another next month sometime.  I figure he’ll have to hang on a few months but then he’ll get one once a month or so.  We did finally get the first letter he sent from Brazil with his box # etc…so check back for the updated address….Clifford will be updating it since I can’t seem to figure it out.

Elder Tyler Fullmer and The heart of Sao Paulo

Me and my comp placed 3 Books of Mormon last Friday. That was the greatest experience of all time. I understood the people and they knew what I was saying, wooohooo. They didn’t get what he was saying, but they always looked to me to talk, and the last one I placed by myself. It feels really great. Next time we go out to the “heart” of Sao Paulo, if you can call it that, but that’s what we do.

I got your letters from the 6th and the 11th so it takes awhile. My mailbox is 21 but your letters have been getting to me and by the way I showed part of one of your letters to the sisters of my district and they wanted me to tell you they thought it was great. I really do enjoy hearing about what’s going on at home.

Oh my comps name is Elder Larson and he’s from Washington. We still can´t upload pictures and that sucks. On the other hand however we can’t take our cameras outside of the CTM, so not too many picture taking opportunities here, but it is so amazing to get out of the CTM every Wednesday.

I have a question for dad, are we related to the Benjamin F Johnson in our heritage?  Also who has got visas…anyone from d-town?

I also thanked the Mission pres for the email and told him that you loved it.

Well I got a little dehydrated Saturday and so I got sick, but I’ve been watching the water level’s better, so that’s gotten good. Me and my comp were both sick over the weekend.

So the Sao Paulo temple is way cool and very beautiful. The Second best of course, but it is up there. Well that’s about it for this week.

I love you guys, bye.

Elder Tyler Fullmer – Two is nice, three is great

So it’s been going really well. We just got back from the temple and we did initiatory and that was really cool. I’m glad we went and did it. It was neat because I didn’t remember what is said at all. Plus we always eat there in the morning so today has been a really good day today. I’m in a trio now.  The third elders name is Elder Malloy. He’s pretty cool and seems to know a lot.

Well my funny story is that we were having companion time and one of my companions started telling me that he had been praying to love me, but had not been able to and the reason was because I am not humble and have no humility. So needless to say when he started Elder Malloy looked really scared like I was going to blow up and take out our other comp, but I’m proud to say that I just sat there took it and now have something to reflect on. Now we’ll see if I can change his opinion, not that he doesn’t think I’m a cool guy and am a good comp but I guess I’m not spiritually humble….I guess.

Well thank you so much for all the packages and letters. I get a letter almost every day. Which is really nice and I love hearing everything that is going on.

My lessons are going great and our teaching is getting better and better. We went to something called the TE, pretty much just a place to get tutored, on how we could be more unified teachers and I must say it really helped. Our district has been reduced from 13 to 6,  3 guys and 3 girls, and it seems so small and empty.

So most of our classes are going mutio bem. O evagelho de jesus cristo é verdage. O livro de mormon cetém o pletituge é verdage. Eu sei que jesus cristo é o filho de deus e ele expiacão por meu pecoas(that worked in my head and who knows if I spelled it right).

The firesides here are pretty awesome. We haven’t heard from one of the twelve yet, but all of the speakers have been great. I sang in the choir and am now rocking the part, too bad I can’t send pics through the email.   I have my first haircut today so ill have to let you know how that goes so you can let Leisa know.

I miss you guys.

Pai,  I met a Thai speaker the other day and he was impressed when I said hello to him so your mini lessons came in handy.  I hope your hand is better. I’m praying for you guys and I’ll try and get a letter out today.

From,

Elder Fullmer
