this week was...the best
we had ana´s baptism on wednesday...
i have good news and bad news about her baptism. she was baptized on wednesday. went to girl´s camp this weekend and ending up getting sick and wasn´t able to go to church to get confirmed on sunday.......bummer of the year. soo we are either going to have to confirm her next sunday...or elder souza said we might have to baptize her again...haha
blasted girl´s camp.
but like i always say...um dia tudo vai dar certo!!
but the good news is that one of our investigators went to girl´s camp too! her name is andrieli and she is like kim kardashian´s twin! (but she´s 16) she started coming to church because of english class and now we are teaching her and her family! they even invited us to a BBQ this weekend! andrieli went to girl´s camp and she said that there was a fireside when all the girl´s bore their testimonies. she also bore hers! she said that she knows that this is the true church and that everytime she goes she feels it stronger and stronger! she also said that she wants to mark her baptism as soon as possible...and we are happy to help with that!! :)
ALSO as a zone, we planned a white christmas! we are all working really hard to have 3 baptisms per companionship in december. we already marked the day, december 14th! we will have like a huge baptismal service for our investigators.. it´s gunna be awesome.
this week was FULL of work. we contacted 8 references!!! 8! i don´t know about other missions but that is like a full on record for us. well for me. and we found a lot of less active members that have wives or husbands that are not members yet and are willing to receive us!! :) it´s just tricky because no one is married legally...
i´m still meeting a lot of people that speak english! today we went to like a food court to eat lunch and a guy called out to me...do you speak english? i was like...yes. do you? haha and he told me that he spent a year in florida as an exchange student. he told me that he could tell i was american because of my face,,,i don´t know what that´s suppose to mean. and it was funny becuase i started speaking português to him and he was like...WHAT you know how to speak português?!! haha i was like uhh yeah! i live here!! i love brasilians. best people ever.
love you all.
more than you could know!
