There’s a Wocket In My Pocket

HEY!

Well another week flew by and I feel like I just wrote you all yesterday! weird. The work is still progressing and I’m still working really hard.
  • We had 10 investigators in church this week which was awesome.
  • We didn’t have a ton of lessons this week like last week because we had zone conference. But we found 10 new investigators and we now have… maybe over 35 investigators. I don’t know, we have a lot.
  • We had a baptism on saturday. His name is Braima and he’s from…. Guine Bissau… I don’t know how to spell that. But he was the one that almost got baptized until he told us he doesn’t believe in God or Christ. So I started from the beginning and taught him about the creation and super basic christian beliefs then worked my way up the normal lessons. It was a LOT of work. I found him like 3 months ago in my first transfer. So that was cool!

Cows

I’m still in a tripla and our new addition Sister Horlacher cracks me up. We were waiting for a member to meet us to teach and she started teaching some cows that were chilling next to us. Seeing that the cows weren’t receiving the commandments really well I helped her out and told the cows they shouldn’t be so lazy. As we were standing there preaching to these cows we look over and there was a man watching us from his window cracking up. hahaha oops.
que mais… (what else…)

Finally

oh man! it finally happened. I was invited over to our bishops house for lunch and was served…. a giant. heaping. plate. of fish and beans. and I ate that sucker like a champion. Then had seconds. It was rough but I survived.
well thats all I have for you all this week. Enjoy some pictures of the ocean!

Beware of Dog…and Chicken

When You Pray…

Hey everyone! This week was a very busy week. Our numbers last week were less than awesome so we spent the whole week contacting like crazy trying to find new investigators. We also prayed a lot for new investigators and Heavenly Father didn’t let us down. I actually couldn’t keep track of all the people we were finding to teach. It was insane. We had one guy call us who had taken all the lessons but never got baptized, and said he wanted to get baptized and asked us to talk to him. that never happens… Hes already keeping all the commandments and have been to church a few times.

Conference

Conference was awesome! But I didn’t understand most of it haha. The translators were all Brazilian so I had a hard time understanding their accents. When I concentrated really hard I understood it haha. 

Training

Training is probably the most stressful thing in the world but the sister I’m training is awesome so its not so bad. The other sisters are saying they think Ill train a new american next transfer so thats a terrifying thought.

ImageDog and Chicken

 So Sister Cruz, my comp, is terrified of dogs. Yesterday as we were walking to conference a dog chasing a chicken ran past us really fast and Sister Cruz started screaming and jumped up on a ledge while desperately “pulling me to safety”. I almost died laughing. I don’t have a picture but I drew you all an idea of the terrifying chicken and dog

Oh yeah my other story of the week. I had a family night at a members house. He handed me a cup of juice and before I could even say “Oh sorry, I can’t drink the water here” he said, “Don’t worry! I put bleach in it.” COMFORTING. I did indeed drink the bleach juice but I survived so no worries haha. 
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
