His Own Words

I guess that there's not better way to tell you how Elder Bascom is than say it in his very own words. So, here you go. Oh, and don't mind the spelling, us Bascom's were never too good at that ;)

Como Vão?
Eu espero que vocês estejem bem. I think I said that right but I don't really know haha. This week has been a really good one. The work is really starting to pick up and I am starting to finally understand most of the things that people are saying. But it's really hard at times and I try to keep myself positive and happy about it. But then I think that I finally understood that I wasn't giving my all to the work. I wasn't doing everything that I could be and so I didn't really deserve to have help with the language. But I am ready to go now and just want to try to give my all and see how the work will go from here. So on Friday I went to a little island called Pico. You only go there if you serve in Praia. Which is my mission. So it was a lot of fun and I took a lot of pictures but my camera died and i forgot the charger in Lisboã, so I'm kinda out of luck with that. But my Comp is actually in Lisboã right now for a Zone Leader confrence adn he said that he would get it for me. So right now I'm on splits in Angra which is another city on Terceira. His name is Elder Owens and he is an awesome Elder, and I am really excited to see how it all goes here. So there is a possibility that my trainer Elder Leonard will be transferred when transfers come. Because he has been on the islands for like 4 months. So that is really nerve racking to think about since that means that I would basically be in charge of what my new comp and i would be doing. So I'm really hoping that he doesn't and taht I get the full 12 weeks with him. So ya that's that haha. So the weather here is really windy and it rains alot too. But I guess that the good thing fo rme is taht I really like the wind and rain! My apartment is pretty big and actaully a decent place. But nothing like the MTC or our house. There is alot more mold here and nothing gets super dry. I got more complements on my portuguese which was cool. But I just keep wanting to work so that I can understand everything and be able to teach. I haven't gotten any emails from you all and I hope everything is ok. My guess is that because it was the Super Bowl last night that you all got kinda busy. And so one question though who won? Ravens or Ninners? It was kinda weird knowing that it was going on and that I couldn't watch it. But ya I think that is about all that is going on in my life right now. I love you all and i hope that everything is going good! I was given a paper that was Titled my missionary commision. You all should look it up. I would type it but I don't have it with me right now and I don't have it memorized! Well again I love you all and i hope that everything is going great for all of you.

I love that he is worried about who won the Super Bowl. He always did hate the 49ers! xoxo, brittany
