Let´s talk about holidays in Brazil

Well, for one. Yes, it´s Tuesday and yet again I am using the internet
because yesterday was Children´s Day here in Brazil. And so as always with
holidays here it is the same thing......EVERYTHING CLOSES. It was a
blessing the the food store was open for a few hours and so we ran there to
buy food. Heads up because the 2nd of November is another holiday and it
will fall on a Monday and so yet again I probably won´t write.

But all´s good!

We had a crazy week last week with conferences and divisions and and our
baptism that didn´t happen. :( But I am still alive don´t worry! Yesterday
arrived and we were dead beat tired and our zone wanted to have an activity
and we ended up playing volleyball and football and so now we are even more
tired and sore to boot!

We found some pretty great people to teach in our area. We are taught a
daughter of a less active named Luiza and she is sooo awesome! We taught
her the Restoration and the Spirit was super strong and the prayer she said
at the end of the lesson was amazing. Later in the week she called us and
told us that she had talked with her pastor and she was sad and said she
wanted to talk with us personally. We will visit her today and I hope that
everything goes well.

Our baptism that fell was super sad. Vitoria is awesome. She has a super
strong testimony and really wants to get baptized. But her mom didn´t sign
the paper and it was really sad. We talked with her a bit and she is super
determined. She said she won´t give up and she will keep going to church
and everything. Her testimony is growing more each day as she reads the BoM.

Sister Lopez and I are doing well together. It´s so strange that we are
together literally 1 year after! How does this happen? But we are doing
great, learning to make brazilian food and laughing on the street and
making great contacts.

The line for this week as we do contacts has been, Wait this church has
members that are women? and we are like, yes....obviously....we are women.

Well I already have to go! I love you all lots and lots! Keep listening to
GC and ponderizing everything!
