hey im sending you some pictures!!!
Dear Family

I don't really remember the things that i was supposed to write... sorry... you should probably send those things to me in your next email.
You're probably not going to get this email til your back in Maine... but anyway, I'm gunna send you some pictures from my stay at the MTC and a few here in Portugal!
No its been awesome!!! so my comp ended up being Elder De Hoyos who was my MTC lone leader when i got to the MTC, so he´s only been out in the field 6 weeks longer then i have. no were in a little town called LoulĂ©. its on the southern tip of the country, and our area is decently big, its about the same size as our branch boundaries. actually if you compare our branch to yours, there pretty similar. except for the fact that i think there more primary children in LoulĂ©.
No Portugal is amazingly gorgeous! i look out the window every morning and see the parrellipipidos, or cobble stones, and am astounded at the beauty!
no speaking of the branch... we have about 70 people that come each week. but that means that we only need 50 more to attend to get the attendance up to quasi ward status. so that's our goal, 50 reactivated, coming, and or baptized!!! that will get this area rolling again!!!
as i think i said in my last letter, Lisbon Portugal is the highest baptizing mission in Europe!!! all it would take is a little more faith and a lot more work to make it the Highest baptizing mission in the world!!!~
OK now i have a question for Evan and Danny:
why did you decide to get baptized?
i'm teaching this 9 ear old joven right now and he needs a little motivation, i think it would be cool if Evan and Danny sent me back responses and i translated them into Portuguese. no to kids name is Bruno he´s an awesome kid!
ok on a separate note, a little more about Elder De Hoyos. his dad is in the first quorum of the seventy, actually his dad took over for grandpa in Mexico. um elder De Hoyos is from Mexico, and speaks fluent English, Portuguese, and Spanish. he´s super cool and is a decent cook!
lets see any more about Portugal? i'm sure there's a ton more... but i cant think of anything...
um the pictures i sent are really random and don't have a lot to do with anything at all, but oh well...
well i think that's all,
com amor
Elder McClellan
