But this week was really good and stressfull! we have had a lot on our hands lately! so Islei and Mécia are getting married this week, and we are basically the wedding planners! haha wishing i had Cathryn´s event planning abilities right now, but i guess i will have to settle for the president of the relief soceity! ;) but its been a lot of work arranging how the cerminony with work, the food, the cake and clothing and such! but looks like everything should go alright!
also this week we have been acompanying some really good investigators. we are teaching Jessica, she is a freind of a recent convert here in the ward, she is preparing for the 17th, we have been teaching her for like a month already, but she never had gone to church.. and finally.. Miracles!! she went to church this week! We are also teaching Carol, another referal from a recent convert, and she is markder for the 9th, things are looking really promising for her to! jsut need to teach her the last little things and should be a baptism this week!
Also we are teaching Suzana. we found her this week looking in the area book for old investigators, her sister was taught like 1 year ago, so we decided to go there, and we found her. we started teaching her, and everytime we teach her, her eyes light up. she has been passing through lots of problems of depression and feels like every place that she has looked for the comfort, she hasnt found it... she is super ready to accept the gospel. so im pretty psyched for this month! we have lots of really good people progressing in our area to be baptized this month!
New years was good, we spent drinking Guaraná and playing chess and Uno.... legit! haha but it was a really good year. So Glad that i decided to come on the mission, the experiences that i had over the last year i kow that i couldnt have replicated in any other place. this last year has chaged me a lot, i have grown so much.. a bit sad to think that its coming to an end! just going to try and live up these last 9 months and "Leave it out all on the Court" as Kenward would say!
Hope that everyone is doing well! love you all and miss you all! Feliz Ano novo! espero que essa ano é o ano aonde todos de seus sonhos são realizadas!!
Amo Todos Vocês!!!
