Dear Family and Friends,
Well, its been a lovely time in Tira Chapeu, and transfers have come once again. I knew my next area would be my last, but I didnt know that it´d also be my first! so im heading back to where i started, back to Santo Antao! I'm more than excited, the people on that island are prepared. I will get part of my old area, and also a large part that i have never worked in. So ill be able to visit a lot of my recent converts, and that will be a huge blessing! Maybe i´ll even be able to take advantage of the ex-investigators in that area and baptize them!
But anyways, this week was a good one, a rough one, but good. We basically decided to drop all of our investigators because everyone stopped progressing. But we did find a couple who are MARRIED, and dont have a religion! The husband is looking for a church to save his marriage, so we have high hopes for them!
|Basically.....the stick form of pillow mints!|
We also made it through another successful zone meeting (luckily it went A LOT better than last time). Our training was pretty good, thanks to sister mathews(mission president´s wife). We did have a wonderful lesson with Carminda about having hope, until your companion doesnt know that ai in portuguese means woe, and reads the following scripture: `Wo be unto him that crieth: All is well!´ thinking that its saying blessed is he who saith all is well. haha that was a good moment. It just brings back the memories of the MTC, i just thought that those moments were long gone. But im truly goping to miss praia, the ice cream, the sketchy bread, and of course the chocolate break and bifanas from arlinda, and lets be real, i am going to slighty miss all the drunk men on the streets. Farewell, oh Babilonia.
With much love,
