I'm going to the Temple!


Hello Family! How are you all doing today?! I didn´t write yesterday because today is my p-day. We're going to the temple! Woohoo!

This was a good week! I did my first split as sister leader. So, a sister leader trainer is different from a regular trainer. I´m not actually training the new sisters or anything, but I watch over the sisters on the mission. We make splits with them, we help them if they´re not doing well. We visit, call, etc... Then we talk about what´s going on with them for President if there are any serious problems going on.

My first division was good. Sister Lourenço, my second companion, came to my area to work with me for the day. It was weird doing a split with my "step mom" that´s for sure. Me and Sister Martinez take care of 10 sisters and then our companions (who we´re training). It´s really interesting to be a sister leader, but its stressful too, because you´re always leaving your area and your investigators. But I think I'm starting to get the routine down.

Everything´s going great here. This ward is awesome!

Anyway, have a great week! I love you!

Wow, I loved this video! The beginning is in Portuguese, but you get the idea.

It really puts into perspective how important the gospel of Jesus Christ is, and how grateful we should be to have this restored gospel in our lives.

I´m so grateful to be here on the mission, teaching the world about this wonderful truth, That God loves us so much that he has called his holy prophets to lead and guide us on our journey through this life. I am so grateful for the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Wow, what a week it has been. I´m in a new area, with a new companion, with new responsibilities. My new companion is Sister Loner from São Paulo! She´s amazing! She´s on her second transfer, so we´re finishing up her training together. We´re serving in the Sapiranga ward with 2 other sisters. One is from Ecuador and the other is from Argentina. They´re a hoot!

Our apartment is full of a lot of crazy and hilarious moments, that´s for sure!

This week was full of getting to know a new area. The area is pretty big, and it´s full of my favorite, HILLS! Lots and lots of hills! haha Nah, it´s really not that bad. The members here are amazing. They love missionaries! They love to fatten us up that is. They give us cake, and pizza and soda... Wow, it´s a lot of stuff. Let´s just hope that the giant hills make up for the side effects of the food...

I´m doing really great here in Sapiranga. This week starts all the fun. We have our first leader meeting this week in Porto Alegre, then we have interviews with President Wright, and then Sister Martinez (the other Sister Leader) and I are going to do our first divisions with the sisters in Novo Hamburgo. They´re about an hour away from us.
I´m excited to see how this week goes. It´s gonna be interesting!

I hope that you´re all doing well and that you´re happy. Time is flying by here on the mission. I have so little time, and so much left to do!

But anyway, until next week!
