última samana!!!

Hey fam,

Well this is the last email. It will probably be a quick one. Next week I´ll be going to Campinas, getting a bus to São Paulo, and then taking a midnight flight back to the states.

Highlight of the week was definitely the marriage and baptism of Luciclea and Fernando. They were so excited and felt such a huge peace after.

We have two other people that are planning on getting baptized the last week of the mission. Jamille is the cousin of Débora and she has just been loving church, and Marli was a referral from another investigator that is eating things up as well. It´s been a really fulfilling couple weeks.

All the misisonaries that are going home had a training from the Centro de Auto-suficiência. Pretty much just training on getting a job. Interview tips, resume tips, finding tips. It was pretty cool.

I´m way excited to talk to everyone. We´ll have a lot to talk about ;)

Love you all and see you next week!

Mais dual semanas! O loco!

February 2, 2015

Oi fam!

It´s crazy how fast the week went by, and how fast this next week will pass by as well. This week we have zone meeting, I have a self reliant course that all returning missionaries take, my final interview with President, a wedding, a baptism, a churrasco, and a couple family nights. And then the last week I will go to the temple, have lunch with President, pack up the bags, and take a big long flight back to the states. It kind of feels surreal sometimes.

Anyway this week has been pretty normal. Luciclea and Fernando are way excited. We found a bunch of new people to teach as well. Débora´s cousin came to church and loved it. Another woman named Marli came as well and had a great experience. Marli cried a ton in our first visit with her. She recently lost a son to a car accident, and the Plan of Salvation brought a lot of comfort.

Other than that it´s just been work as normal. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
