So on Thursday I got a call from Elder Mckee, and guess what! I am going to train again! I am so excited! I loved training Sister Lacerda, and now I get to train again! But that isn’t the best part! Sister Lacerda is going to train too! Wow what an honor! Right out of being trained, she will train!
Can you believe that I have been here in Santa Maria in Camobi for 7 months? Pretty crazy stuff! I love it here! but my time has come to an end….. and I will be returning to the lovely city of Santiago. The last time I was there I was serving in the branch, but now I will be serving in the ward in the city center. I get to open and area where I don’t know anyone, or anything, while at the same time training a new missionary! Wow! Its gonna be a wild ride, but I am excited for the challenge! I know that heavenly father will lead and guide us to the people who need His gospel.
One of our investigators here will be baptized on saturday, and life is good! I love this work, and I love my savoir.
Hello to all and a Happy Easter! I hope that it was as great for you as it was for me and Sister Lacerda! We got a whole bunch of chocolate it was fantastic!
So here in Brasil, Sexta Feira Santa (good Friday) is more sacred than Easter! It is crazy stuff! Everyone eats fish (no meat) and doesn’t work! It is especially funny, because many people believe that if they keep good Friday then they’ll be saved, even if they don’t keep the other commandments.
We helped out with a primary activity on Saturday that was very similar with what mom does every Easter with the eggs that tell the Jesus story. It was so stinking cute! I made deviled eggs and Sister Lacerda loved them!
We got rained out yet again, and it is starting to cool down! Wow!
We are teaching a really awesome family that went to church with us and loved it!
So this whole week last week my head was so itchy, I thought that I had an allergy or something, but when I went to take a shower I discovered that I had lice! AHHHH! I wanted to die! So we went to the pharmacy, and I bought anti lice shampoo, and that tiny brush and went to town. Holy cow! I remembered that time when Sadie got lice and mom went all crazy washing everything! I was totally her! Haha! It was so crazy!
Be prepared for anything on the mission, I really liked a phrase that Ammo said in his letter, “Don’t do something half way, because it doesn’t serve you or anyone. Give it your all” I love serving a mission and am so thankful!
PS We get transfer calls this week, and I will most likely be transferred, but anything can happen:)
Hey! This week started out a little rocky, but ended super well! We are trying to get new investigators right now, so we spent a lot of time on the street contacting addresses.
We had divisions (Splits) with Sister Christensen, and Ançay. I got to go with Sister Christensen, it was so awesome, because we arrived together! We taught an English class, and a piano class in the stake center, it was way funny, because both of us know practically no piano, so it was kinda funny! It was really great! We ended the week amazingly with conference! I love this work!
