Thanks for the birthday singing in perfect harmony :) I did get the birthday package and christmas package this week. (No worries, the Christmas box is sitting nice and shut under our mini tree and I intend to leave it that way till the 25th… we´ll see if will power holds out!) Thanks so much! We´ve got a churrasco planned at the Theobaldo house tomorrow and I´m pretty stoked :) I´ll be eating well for my birthday for sure!
Yay for officially entering the Christmas Season!!! I’m glad you all made it back safe..
Irmã Alda is making a Thanksgiving dinner for us on Thursday. Love her! It
was planned back during last transfer when Sister Wohlford was still here,
too bad she’ll be missing out on a traditional dinner.
Yay for Christmas season approaching! I LOVE CHRISTMAS! And seeing as
Brazil doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving there’s not even an argument about
decorating too early. The paper stores already have all their decorations
out, we’ve been singing Christmas hymns in sacrament meeting the last two
weeks and I’m loving it! We´ve been starting to use the Joy to the World
DVD with some families and every time I squeal a little bit with
excitement. We didn´t use it last year in Colorado but it´s such a good way
to show that Christ really is the Savior of the WORLD and because of that,
signs were given not just where he was born but also here in the Americas.
I just LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!
This week was definitely one with lots of ups and downs. Up being that
Bianca will be baptized on Saturday! YAY! Down being that Mara won´t be :(
We had to push it back for sometime in December due to that pesky job of
hers… It´ll all work out though, she´s defintiely got a testimony, I have
no doubt that she´ll be baptized in the next couple of weeks.
The Theobaldo family is still amazingly golden and the most solid family of
recent converts I have ever seen. We continue to get references from them
every time we´re there and not just from our area. We´ve been able to pass
several other areas references as well from this family, because they
seriously talk to EVERYONE!
I´m glad you get to spend Thanksgiving with Grandpa and everyone back there
this year. Wish I could be there with you but I´m glad to be where I am :)
I love you all and am thankful you´re my parents!
You can add my leaves to the thankful tree this year:

I love you all! Give everyone in Michigan a hug for me! Have a great week!
Hey there! P-day got changed this week due to a mission conference with Elder Godoy and Elder Evans. SOOOO GOOD! They both talked a ton about reactivation and the important part we as full-time missionaries play in this work. It was also really fun to get to see everyone, especially Sister Silva! I have missed that girl so much!! She sends a hug and a kiss to the family :)
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 :)
