Today, as I sat in the beautiful LDS church listening to the Portuguese words that were coming from the pulpit, I couldn’t help but reflect on all the blessings I have had in my life. I am understanding more Portuguese in two weeks than I ever thought was possible. I am starting to write and speak Portuguese rather than just listen and understand it. I have a wonderful family here in Portugal who is doing everything they can to help me learn (mostly by enduring the deathly slow conversations I try to have with them) and I have a great teacher–Kailey who has more patience than I ever thought was imaginable!
I also reflected back on the time that I almost died during the bull run in Moita… Boy am I glad that is over!
