Transfer 10…Sort Of…And President Mateus

Well, obviously there weren’t any transfers this transfer cause we had them two weeks ago. but hey! transfer 10! I’m in the double digits.
 

This week… haha.

 

So Tuesday was the leadership counsel which was great. Our new president, President Mateus is awesome. It’s interesting to see a new mission president cause you can tell they’re learning with you. I really loved all his trainings though and his wife gave an AWESOME training on how the Lord prepares people.

 

Once I got back to Sal I got to work in my new area. I’m more used to it now so the adjustment isn’t as bad. My new companion is so funny. Haha–she’s a sassy one. Our conversations are just… haha well for example. At district meeting we had a “understand your companion” time where we all separated and asked each other questions trying to understand our comps better. (Ours consisted of me asking her questions and her shrugging.) When we came back this was the conversation:

District leader :Alright! How was it? (looking at us)

me: It was great!

comp: no it wasn’t

District leader: did it go well?

me:yeah it did!

comp: no it didn’t.

District leader: Do you feel like you understand each other?

me: We’re getting there!

comp: no we’re not.

hahaha oh man she’s a funny one. She’s not super thrilled about the whole transfer thing but I’m determined to be her best friend and I shower her with loves and kindness.

I made her pancakes the other day and presented them to her. She glared at them and grunted “just one.” and gave me the bowl back. So I took the other pancakes out except for one and gave her the bowl so she could eat the pancake. hahahaha.

I also entertain myself. I found this really ugly pair of glasses in our house and started wearing them as if they’re mine. My comp hasn’t said anything about it even though I never used glasses the first 2 weeks I was with her.

 
Anyway. Despite all that craziness were seeing tons of miracles. Especially yesterday. We have a boy named Clebber marked to be baptized this week but was saying all week he hadn’t recieved an answer to his prayers. As we were talking about recieving answers I felt I should read the chapter in 3rd Nephi of when Christ came and the people heard God’s voice but didnt understand it. Then he sat and thought for a moment and asked “Can an answer come through my thoughts also?” then we shared D&C 8:2 and he was like, “Yeah, I think I actually did recieve an answer then.” YAY! now he’s going to be baptized Saturday.
 
We’re also teaching a guy named José who almost died a few weeks ago cause his alcohol count was 86% and now he wants to change his life. We taught him the first lesson and when we came back he said “I recieved an answer and will be baptized.” SO AWESOME!
 
Can’t wait for this week.
 
LOVE YOU ALL!
