Happy Halloween!! We had interviews with President this week which means mail, which means I got your packages which means we’ve been enjoying our candy today :) Brazil also celebrates day of the dead which will be Wednesday. They seriously have a day for everything and everyone, they sure like to celebrate! (or just have days off…) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I got both the pictures you sent and the rescue box with much needed peanut butter and other necessities :) Thank you! I loved the pictures! Sister Wohlford appreciated that you made captions with post its. We’ve been using my Costco pack of post its for a quote wall in our apartment. She said the post it use must run in the family :)
Happy 10 years at Microsoft daddy! That’s crazy to think it’s already been 10 years.
I’m with Travis, any team over the Texas Rangers. I don’t even really follow Seattle anymore but I’m still holding on to that grudge against A-rod.
Bummer about BYU and the Sounders…. better luck next week!
We had a really really good week! We were able to mark a baptism date with Bianca! (I can never remember what I’ve mentioned in e-mails and what I tell president, and what I mention in random letters….) So just in case you need some background… There’s this family of recent converts, actually two brothers and their families and their mother who all live in the same housing, kinda like grandpa and aunt Dawn and Cindy. They have one more sister who has taken all the lessons, loves it, knows it’s true but works Sundays so can’t be at church. This sister Mara has a daughter named Bianca who lives with her dad and comes to Mara’s house on the weekends. We’ve taught her from time to time when we happen to be there on the weekends and she also loves it. We had an AMAZING lesson with her Saturday night and she said she wants to be baptized! It was such a neat experience explaining about baptism and the need to be baptized by proper priesthood authority. She asked how you know when someone has the priesthood and we had her uncle Marcio explain to Bianca how he received the priesthood. Her eyes just lit up when she realized that her uncle has the power of God. It was so neat! She came to church yesterday and loved it. This family is seriously amazing.
We’ve been teaching so much with members lately. I don’t know what changed or what got everyone so excited but we’ve been so blessed with references and help from the members! I love having people to teach!
Transfers is already this week again. This by far has been the fastest transfer of the mission so far. We’re hoping we get another one together, there’s still a lot we need to do in this area together!
Hope you all have a great week! Don’t forget that I love you!!
Good thing I practiced so much in Jaçanã :)
