How is everyone doing? I wish I had way more time to email you but we are kept pretty busy at the CTM! We only have 30 minutes to read and type all of our emails so I have to type all of the important stuff. But here is my address to the mission home:
Elder Howard Derek McKeon
Brazil São Paulo East Mission

Thanks! I am doing fantastic here!! I am having such a fun time! Can you believe that I've been here for 7 weeks already? I don't know about you but they have flown by for me! I leave for the field the 30th of this month so I've been counting down the days until I leave! 20 more to go! I sent you guys a long detailed letter with a couple of pictures in it last week. I don't know how long mail takes to get there but it should be there soon. I wish we could upload pictures on the computer, but we can't, I think we can in the field so I'll do most of them then.
I am having a blast here! Yes, I listened to all of conference and the first talk from President Monson drove a lot of talk from all the missionaries! That's all we talked about the rest of this week! Is Kirk going to go right when her turns 18? I know that Rylee REALLY wanted to go when she was 21, so now she can go even sooner!!! This conference was so different as a full time missionary. It was amazing to take in all of doctrine and the spirit that they shared with us. And I only slept through ONE talk! Guess whose it was??? yup, Richard G. Scott..... He has such a melodic voice and it gets me every single time. I love my mission and the experiences I am having! I enjoy the CTM and the food! I am eating a ton of rice and beans. I dump it over all my food, no matter what it is, beans and rice! I miss you so much more than words can describe! I will write you another letter this week in great detail!!
