On the way to the zoo!

Today Ava's letter came in Portuguese, so I will include the google translated version below:

Sao Paulo Zoo
3,200 animals, 102 species of mammals, 216 species of birds, 95 species of reptiles

Sorry, but I need to write in Portuguese today. We are going to one of the biggest zoos in South America with a family that I love VERY much, Sister Gilmara and Brother Ronaldo!

I'm writing on her cell phone because she does not have time to go to the LAN house. So it gets very difficult to write in English because autocorrect tries a thousand times to correct every word in English.

This week I had an interview with President Silcox and he gave me all the wisdom and strength I needed. It is very clear now what you expect of me in this "challenge," and in fact, it is very beautiful. This situation that is so challenging helps me overcome the weaker parts of myself. Charity, patience, and humility. Really, the Lord loves me so much that he entrusts me with such ... intense challenges. LOVED your letter. Mom! And I also always love the details of the week.

President Silcox's advice is always very inspired.  I love you all so much.

Kisses! Sister ludlam

I am your new visiting teacher by the way. I am going to send you some treats that you like ie fig bars, Cliff bars!! Hold on tight! One day at a time!! We all love you and are so proud of you!!!
