Seriously, we do anything to get people to let us in "WE JUST WANT TO SAY A PRAYER WITH YOU GUYS!" and then we sing a hymn and say a prayer and theyre like "alright, thanks, nice meet you guys" and before they can finish we just start talking and start teaching and talk about the restoration of the gospel for an hour, and then invite them to be baptized and mark another visit and we leave and the second we are out the door they probably all think "what the heck just happened? that was a lot more than just a prayer" and it is THE BEST!
OKAY HOLY GUACAMOLE SO MUCH HAPPENED THIS WEEK I WANT TO TELL YOU GUYS.
okay so starting off, I went to Santa Maria on monday because tuesday morning we had our Mission Counsel (i think thats what it is in English, haha who knows) and guess who picked me up from the bus station? SISTER CHAVES! MY BELOVED TRAINER AND MOM WHO I HADNT SEEN FOR 6 MONTHS! Ugh it was awesome. And she gave me our "sister hood of the travelling shirt" that started with the trainer of her trainer who became Sister Training Leader, and then passed to her trainer, and then passed to Sister Chaves, and now I have it!! #love
Tuesday we had an AWESOME training about how we have to have alot of love but also high expectations, and with those two things, we will have MIRACLES in our mission! and then Presidente Louza was talking about rules, because Presidente Parrela haf 1769028 rules about every LITTLE detail, and Presidente Louza was like "The only necessary rules we have are what is written in Preach My Gospel and our White Bible" and we were like "PRESIDENTE!!!! THAT'S A RULE!!! WE ARENT ALLOWED TO CALL THE MISSIONARY HANDBOOK 'WHITE BIBLE'!!" HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA It was the funniest thing in the world
MY NEW COMPANION IS AWESOME! SIster Vera, my third companion from PERU (Pai Celestial really wants me to learn Spanish lol) and she is literally one of the happiest péople I have ever met, and with us two together, or companionship is this little ball of sunshine and jumping up and down when something good happens. I LOVE IT! And our first night together she plucked my eyebrows so now we are eternally bonded, right?
Also she always says "freaking" in the middle of her portuguese sentences and its my favorite thing.
Also Im addicted to saying "MAS QUE BABARIDADE TCHÊ" and I cant even give you guys a good translation...................
.....like "thats ridiculous" or something like that haha
Best prayer of our investigator of the week:
please help me forgive the sisters because its 7:30 and they told me they would be here at 1 pm.
HAHAH shes 10, but yeah it was totally OUR BAD.
OH HEY IM A SCREWUP AND MISTYPED MY ADDRESS LAST WEEK:
Caixa Postal 179
so yeah life is good and im happy and weve already found lots of miracles in our path :)
1 Corinthions 13:2
If we do things, but we dont do them with love, its not even worth anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EVERYONE LOVE EVERYONE, OKAY?
At the bus station saying goodbye to my peeps from Alegrete!
ME and Sister Vera tried to take a cute picture under a pretty tree, and the other sisters were taking in, and there were cars passing in the street and they were like "hurry up, you guys are embarrassing us" and we started laughing, but in the picture it looks like we were throwing up. ENJOY :)
