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!
