Hi peepz. Whats the 411? lol
I love you guys!!!! i get overloaded every week with emails, all my comps have been like what the heck is this! Like i log on and have 70 emails. Its a lil stressful, so if i dont reply a whole lot its because of this. but i love it!! thank you for your support and for remembering lil ole me here in brasil.
So Severina was baptized sat. morning and it was great! so many members came, shes so cute!! the day before her baptism, she was like “I know once im baptized itll start raining blessings”! THen during her baptism when we wedre taking pics, it started raining and she was like “Sister! Its raining my blessings!” So flippin cute.
But more importantly for this week:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY ANGEL MOTHER JILL! I love you mom. You are literally my best friend and Id be dead in the street without you. Thank you for everything you do for me!! I love you endlessly!!! Please fly to Olinda for ur bday ok? hahah but in all seriousness, you are an angel! And so beautiful! If you only realized that people FLIP OUT when i show them a pic of you. Im actually scared to walk around with you here in brasil, bc people already say intersting things to me, with you itll be a whole nother story . but anyway, happy bday!!! I hope you do something fun!!! you only turn 40 once 😉 live it up
We have like a teaching pool of 55 people here (including recent converst and less actives) HOLY COW. thats a lot of ppl. this area is on fire, i feel stressed but its all good. We marked 2 more baptisms this week, for the 17th and 24th. (none this weekend) but they are like legit. One is Sy****, whos best friend is an RM and super cool. He has a man bun hahah butyesteday we taught him the first lesson and he said he feels so good in the church and wants to stay in this church and he accepted to be batpzied!! i just think there will be a lil probleminha with the law of chastity. but its all good. people can change bc the atonement is real!!!
Thsi week i got SO sick, same thing my comp had. im still sick, with a cold. It started with a sore throat and now its just like a stuffy nose. Thusday i woke up with a fever like HOT and so at the district metting the elders gave me a blessing. But it was so cool bc it was almost like i could feel the fever leaving my body, i got super hot, then wihtin an hour the fever was gone!!! I was feeling like a hundred times better. The priesthood is so powerful!! Im grategul for the opportunity i had to be sick, bc its good to remember every now and then how powerful the priesthood really is. Also to remember how great it is to be healthy! Anyway, kinda cool. Feeling lots better! the assistant is calling me like every freaking night asking if im better! we sisters are very taken care of in the mission. dont eveer worry!
but we have the jankiest house of all the sisters haha i found out this week. but its okay. lots of the elders have AC!!! also found that out this week, was super upset, but im accustomed to sweating 24/7 so its cool
we had 7 invest. in church on sunday, it was great! They all have lots of potential. I was sitting there smiling so big looking at them all!! Theyre so cute. I really love the people that we teach.
This thurs we have zone conference and friday there’s a conference just for the sisters. im excited to learn new thigns! Im trying to really take advantage of this time on the mission to better myself. I have so many things i want to work on but slowly and surely ill get there haha
we were without water friday-saturday and i wanted to cry. like nothing. only water that we buy to drink, couldnt shower and had to brush our teeth with the drinking water. i was so stressed!!! bc my hair was dirty and severeinas baptism was sat morning. So i was like sister lets say a prayer right now, or im gonna use all our drinking water to take a shower, im serious and she was like No you wont!! hjahah but we prayed and then within 20 ish minutes the water came back!! so then we prayed again to say thank you to HF for hooking it up, I arrived at the baptism clean as a baby
These weeks are flying by!! Idk why but i feel so busy in this area!! so much to do, so many people to see (literally() and so many miles to walk and hills to climb. crazy that next month ill be halfway done. I know the mission will just fly by.
I wsa thinking about carson receiving his mission call this week and started crying. Hes so cute!!! Tell him to stop growing up !! and kennedy too. shes so pretty, i cried looking at her senior pic. i know what ur all thinking “wow she cries alot ” but the mission does this to you.
I love you all! Have a great week, please be safe! xoxo
