had a good week work wise, found some good new people to teach and have been trying to get them to church. seems like it is always the same problem. but we are gonna keep working with them!
this week we did a division with one of the companionships in our zone, i stayed with Elder Santana and Elder Brown, elder brown has been on the mission for a grand 20 days now... his portugesse was limited to say the least. gave me a flashback to more than a year ago when i was in his shoes.. brazilian companion, brazilian food, brazilian culture... and me... LOST! haha it was interesting to reflect on the beginining of the mission and see just how far i have come. really felt like ive grown up (probably not as much as i think! haha) but many things have certainly changed. one thing that the mission has taught me has been to just go out and get things done! dont wait for others act, but to do and be productive, to try the best even when the path in front isnt so clear.. the mission has provided so many great growing experiences!
this week, the secretaries called me asking me what airport i wanted to land in.... i officially only have six months left... it was such a weird sensation.. sometimes it doesnt feel real that my misison will end... but just trying to live up these last six months to the fullest!
Larissa´s baptism was awesome, her parents are separated and her dad is a member in another ward, he was there and bore his testimony, it was really a good feeling at the service. after avery baptism ive had, there is a feelin that you just cant beat. the feelin that yo know that you helped some one find the way home.... incredible!
hope that everyone is doin well! im doing great! its hot, but its good!
