Week 49 - Feliz Ano Novo!


Happy New Year everyone! This week went super great! 

First of all we got to go up to Boa Vista in Recife for our Christmas Conference. It was literally the best thing ever. President Bigelow taught us so much. I feel so enlightened. And, definitely I feel closer to my Savior. At the Christmas Conference we watched the bible videos of Christmas, had lunch, and listened to Pres. Bigelow.   Everyone got a Chocottone.

Week 48 - Feliz Natal/Another Terrible Haircut/11 Months

Hello Everyone!!! And FELIZ NATAL!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe that it is already the week of Christmas.  It does not feel like it at all. But honestly I am getting excited!

This week went pretty well! The highlight though was when Tawã somehow tracked down my phone number here in Lagoa Encantada and we were able to talk on the phone. When he told me he got his mission call to Colorado I literally flipped out!  I still cannot believe that!!!  I am so flipping excited for him! Best state ever.

Week 47 - Batismo de Fernando

Hello gente,

Yesterday was the baptism of Fernando!! He is the one guy who came up to us and asked if we could start teaching him because he was praying. We had stake conference all the way in Setubal (where I used to have district meetings), and afterwards a member named Paulo baptized him.  As he was entering the font, he slipped and fell and almost cracked his head open!! But he got up and was all good.  We were thinking how terrible it would've been if he had to go to the hospital and not be baptized.

Week 46 - deezy dezembro

Elder Gimenez and myself.
Hello everyone!

This week was pretty chill. It is starting to look a little like Christmas, but not really at all hahah.  I can't believe it is already December!

One day this week, we had a ton of lessons and Elder Gimenez rocked it at inviting people to be baptized.  Almost everyone accepted a marked date. We are realizing that the biggest thing we need to do is invite.
