[This week we also received a letter from Emily. She sent one to everyone. They were written the beginning of August. There are a lot of cute stories that are so Emily that I want to share...Here is some of Sam's letter:]
Guess what Sam? I killed my first cockroach yesterday! It was huge and gross. I hated it. But I thought of my brave little brother and how he would probably think it's cool so I squished it with a shoe. Its guts went everywhere and it was super gross! Ugh. I don't like them. In Portuguese they are called a "Barata." My companion always screams really loud when we see one.
We are teaching a little boy... [who] is 6 just like you! Every time I come over he gives me a piece of bubble gum called "spish." [Sam now walks around asking for spish.]
When I tell people here my brother's name is Sam they think it's awesome because no one here is named Sam! I explain it's Samuel like in the Bible and they can understand better.
I love you Sam! I miss you and I hope you have a great first week of school! I can't wait to hear all about it in your next letter! Muito Saudades Sam the man!
Love, Sister Heyer
