Week 28


haha hope everyone is amazing!!!!!!!! I love you all and thank you for your letters and emails!

This week we had more ..... RAIN! Yes rain! A ton of rain! haha and my shoes decided to give out and I went mud sliding!  Sadly I don't have pictures but I have the memory of mud staining everything and that's enough!  The mud here is a grayish clay and horrible to get out but was fun before I had to clean everything. 

SO WE HAD TRANSFERS AGAIN and I AM STAYING IN GUARBIRA WITH SISTER B FERRRIERA! I am soooooo happy!!!!!!!!!! And soooooooooo EXCITED!!!!!!!!!! This will be an amazing transfer! I love her so much! And this branch is hard but I love, love, and love the work here! There is so much to do! We are always running!

Speaking of running we started running in the mornings this week! Wish me luck. I am a little nervous! But it should be good!!!!

This week we had a special transmission come to all the missionaries around the world with the apostles. It was amazing I learned a lot and felt the spirit a ton! But the most profound part was actually the documentary about JC that we watched as we were waiting for the transmission. I learned a TON!!!!!!!!!!! It was amazing! Because of this I started to read Jesus the Christ this week and I am in LOVE! I love Jesus the Christ! Everyone needs to read it! To learn more about our Savior! I love my Savior and I am so humbled by his sacrifice for me!

LOVE YOU ALL! Remember who you are and who died for you!

Week 27! Finished the story of Pedro and his family's conversion

Hi family and friends! another quick one!

I have no idea where I left off in my story ... but Pedro and his family prayed and read the Book of Mormon together and when we asked them about it they all where waiting on the edge of the chair just waiting to tell us they knew it was all true- haha they never visited the church but they all wanted to be baptized because they all prayed and new it all was true. When we talked about baptism with them they all shouted out we want to be baptized!!! When they came to church - they all wouldn't stop telling us how they knew this was the Church of Jesus Christ. They are incredible. They go to all the activities. Pedro and Pedrinho will receive the priesthood this week!!!!!!! They invite everyone to church! Their testimonies are incredible! They pray and read every day. They are all in 2 Nephi. Little Paulo Hen. even reads haha he teaches their dog. Its really cute. I am so proud of them and happy!!! I love this family so much! I feel so blessed to be able to be apart of their story- but really it was all them. I have so many stories with this family. They are amazing!! The other day they all where teaching little Paulo again all of the commandments. I began to cry. It was a moment very dear to my heart! They are so special!!! (:

This week we had a flash flood here. We where trapped in the house of the president of the branch for like 4.5 hours. haha it was really cool! I will send pics next week! It continues to RAIN A TON!!!!!!!!!!! and afterwards the sun is extremely hot and strong! 

Thank you for all who sent me emails and letters! You are all amazing! Love you all soooo much!!!!!!!!! I am trying to write and respond but that takes a lot of time!

TODAY- a rat! A RAT! got into our house and for an hour we worked to get him out! It was actually really fun but awful at the same time. AND he was not a little rat- HE WAS GIANT!!!!!!!!! But with our diligent missionary skills we got him out! hehe

LOVE YOU ALL!  Ate mais!

Week 26 Baptism of Henrique Family -New Pictures

OI FAMILIA!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone is doing amazing!!!! THIS WAS AN AMAZING WEEK!!!!

We had a BAPTISM! But not just any baptism. A baptism of a family!!! Their story is amazing. The family of Pedro. 

The family is the Dad- Pedro and his children Polyana (14), Pedrinho (12) and Paulo Henrique!!!!! All we

The story-

We where hungry. (typical) and were craving pizza and we always talked about this one place we wanted to try. But it was in a neighborhood we never go because it is always deserted. But we decideded to do contacts there and the whole day was without success. Until we found the pizza place. And Pedro was standing in front about to start work and we stopped to ask him about his pizza. He actually was the person who makes the pizza! (later found out its the best pizza in all of Parabia!)

We marked a day with him and returned later that week. And now I am out of time to finish! I am so sorry! I will finish his story next week! Just know- he is incrediable and love this family so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ate mais!
