Ola Ola Ola!!!! BOM DIA!!
First off i just want to say i hope you are all doing well! I hear it is now summer in utah and school has ended! Wow does time fly! Here in brasil winter is just beginning! The days begin to get colder and colder but it isnt anything like winter in utah thats for sure! Anyways these past couple of weeks have been a week of changes for me. First we had transfers this past week. Sister Silva got transfered and is in Ponta Grossa ( Ponta Gross: Area where every single missionary in curitiba wants to serve) It was sad to see her go but i know i will have much success with my new companion!! Her name is Sister Cordeiro (lamb in english ahha) She is so funny and probably one of the sweetest people i have ever met. 2nd change this week is we moved houses. We had to pack everything up in our old house and move out because the elders are moving in. Our new house is very small but sufficent for our needs.
This week we have been working with a family of less actives. They have a daughter named camila who is 11 years old. We have been teaching her almost everyday and she has been progressing alot. she is now reading the book of mormon and praying with us. We are hoping to mark a baptismal date with her this week!! I am so excited! Please everyone pray she will have a desire to be baptized. Also this week we encountered a family from Haiti. They are really nice but they speak very broken portuguese (like me:)) We visited them and taught them the importance of prayer. We have to get them a book of mormon in french or in creol because they cant really read in portuguese. They came to church with us on sunday!!!! I am so excited to teach them and get to know them better!!
I am learning and growing and meeting so many different people every single day preaching the gospel!! The Church is true!! Everyone needs to be a missionary! You dont need a missioanry badge to preach the gospel! The gospel can bring so much happiness in our lives everysingle day. I love you all and thank you for your support!!
