So, training is interesting. we tried to experiment with switching up the schedule, but it kinda just turned into a disaster. we were late or super early for just about every appointment... haha but we pulled though. we got to watch some guys butcher a pig. that was cool. we also got to witness the full-on caboverdean mama bear criole fight (that our reactivated member was a part of, story for another day, but I now know that I understand quite a bit of criole).
The baptism of Sabrina was moved, so should be getting pictures of that soon! the members here are awesome, mainly the recent converts. So glad that we get to spend Christmas here! Marlene, 13 year old recent convert, bore her testimony yesterday...sweetest thing ever. She comes to church in the morning and the night and is now always teaching with us! She wants to serve a mission in portugal. what a peach. She also always makes us little bows to wear in our hair. I'm also going to teach her to lead music so she can do that for her calling. it would be prime. Perla and he family,
Elaine and Tiago, are moving along well. They all came to church on sunday, but she needs to get married, but she doesn't want to. So we´ll see how that goes. She is amazing though. and Maria is a boss as usual. We just have to get her married as well. It's a work in progress. Well, her not-yet-husband is where we´re working.
Sister Lee is amazing. preparing for her first division. She is going to be amazing. brushing up on the street contacts. Man, how I hated to do contacts, now i dont mind it. But the mission does get easier when your senior companion, but it also gets A LOT more stressful. I feel like I´m always forgetting something... everyday. We also we´re blessed with water again! Hopefully it wont be shut off again. Maybe it will be a permanent blessing. blessings on blessings.
