What a wonderful week!

Hello family and friends!  It´s another day here in the Brazil Porto Alegre North Mission.  Today is a super cloudy day, and we´re just hoping that the downpour doesn´t start until we get home!9/15/14
Last week was super long and crazy without a normal p-day.  We went to the temple on Tuesday and didn´t even get back to our area until 9:45 pm.  It was pretty crazy.
We were dying from lack of sleep.  I think that I had to wake up before 6:30 almost every day last week!  All I wanna do is sleep in.  aka- all I want to do is sleep until 6:30!  

It was a great week though.  We worked and sweated a lot.  The heat is starting to set in, but we have a lot of great people that we´re helping.  I can´t believe that it´s already the 4th week of the transfer.  It´s going by way too fast.  

Yesterday the other Sisters had a baptism!  They baptized an amazing family!  It was a crazy adventure helping them get to baptism, including helping them get married on Friday morning.  It was the first time I had ever seen a courthouse wedding.  Sister Loner and I are hoping to help one of our families do the same thing this transfer. They´re really awesome, but we need a lot of help and prayers to get them there.  

Something really cool happened yesterday.  We were walking down the street and a woman working at a pharmacy stopped us and asked us if we were Mormons.  We said yes, and she told us that she had had a dream recently that she was inside of a huge, beautiful mormon church... She told us that her friend recently got baptized in Bahia(it´s a city in another state in Brazil), and that she wanted to visit this 'huge, beautiful Mormon church"  when she goes to visit him.  We marked a visit with her today.  It´s just really cool how the Lord works, and how so many times, out of the middle of nowhere people show up and ask you about the church.  We´re hoping and praying that she´s our golden investigator this transfer!   

But anyway, I hope that everyone is doing well.  I´m so excited for General Conference that´s coming up.  It´s gonna be great.  I´m so happy to be here in Brazil, working and sweating and helping all of my brothers and sisters.  Have a wonderful week, and don´t forget to help the missionaries!  

Have a perfect week!
