The week my heart dropped.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

This week was awesome! We´ve had awesome miracles and it´s been incredible to see until the very end. Everyone reminds me in our ward that if I dont leave soon they´re gonna ask for my membership record to be transfered here.... lol.

One of the coolest miracles is named Paula. Almost two transfers ago we met Paula, almost on accident. We had to get into this apartment complex and had the investigator wasnt responding. We yelled for someone to open the gate and it was Paula. She bgean to ask a bunch of questions abuot the church because when she was little she visited with her dad and step mother who were members. After teaching her the first lesson and getting to know her we found out that in that same week, she was moving to another house because she was seperating with her husband. I´ve never felt so so so disappointed. So we sent her new address to the elders who were serving in that area and we never heard anything else. UNTIL we saw her in the street this week. I´ve never felt a hug so strong in my life before.... she was so so happy to see us. She informed us that she moved BACK TO OUR AREA. Yesterday, she went to church for the first time in many many years. I know without a doubt that she felt at home, that she truly felt the love of her Savior that she was needing so badly. We are preparing for baptism within the next couple of weeks!!

Okay now the part where my heart dropped. So I was in the chapel, I think I was talking to some member while we were switching rooms. All the sudden everyone is quiet and I look to the door. I see my recent convert and behind him are my other two recent converts. Do you believe that I DIDNT RECOGNIZE THEM BECAUSE I WAS IN SHOCK?! I sat there looking like an idiot until I realized it was them and I started to ugly cry and REALLY look like an idiot. Catia and Valdeon (yes THE CATIA AND VALDEON) and Anderson from my very first area came to visit me. I was a complete mess the whole day. Catia and Valdeon are no longer "recent" converts because they are already members for a year and are preparing to go to the temple in August (if anyone is going to Brazil in August and willing to let me go in your bag, I accept). Anderson is preparing his mission papers to serve (hopefully in Arizona, am I right?). It was just the greatest day. Lots of happy happy tears. Catia said that the day I´ll see my mom will be worse. Amen. I feel so privileged to have been the one to teach these sweet spirits, along the side of my sweet companion, Sister Jackson.

I love the gospel. I know now more than ever that miracles are real according to our faith. I love my Savior.

Hi family and friends! I cant believe the time is passing by so quickly.  This week I had my last Mission Conference. The president of the Brazil MTC and his wife came to visit our mission. It was such a sweet experience. I gave the last prayer and as I was leaving the stand his wife said "I cant believe youre American! You look and speak like a true Brazilian!". I got a little teary eyed because I truly love this country. It´s incredible how Heavenly Father knows I needed to serve here. I feel this everyday.

There are little time today, but I´ll write more about the experience next week.

Email after the Skype Call is always super dry because I feel like I´ve already said everything! BUT I wanted to send out a Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers here.

If I have learned something on my mission other than getting to know my Savior better, it is about the divine role of a mother and women in my life. It´s a subject very close to my heart. I think a lot about the people that have helped me get to where I am today and the great majority are sweet mothers who took me under their wings and helped me learn to fly. Its incredible to see how God has truly given women a little bit of His power to bring souls here to the earth and prepare them to return in His presence.

One of the greatest blessings I´ve had here on the mission, is to see awesome irmas here in the wards and branches that I´ve passed who have suffered so much to give their children the blessings of the gospel, just like my mom. I´m so grateful that I have a mom that fought to give me the gospel in my life. I cant imagine what its like to be her. I mean, just raising 4 women is a big task. I love you mom and I´m eternally grateful to Heavenly Father that I got sent to you.

Happy Mothers Day...

The Last Transfer

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Hi family and friends! Today, I recieved my last transfer email saying where I would go and who I would stay with. Im so so so happy to be able to stay here in Monte Castelo (6months!!) with Sister Meneses. Heavenly Father truly is blessing me with a happy ending. I am much better after our little sickness. Usually people who catch Zika stay in bed for 2 or more weeks but after one week I was already able to work. I was so happy to leave that stinkin bed. The time has passed by so fast. I hardly dont believe it. But I have 6 more weeks of working hard for the Lord and I cant wait for it to start.

This week was awesome. We had the baptism of Miguel. He is a young man that was interested in the church because his friend, Mormon,( yes his name really is Mormon) invited him to check out the church website. While he was looking around he asked for a Book of Mormon and thats when the missionaries (thats us!) recieve his referral. Miguel is REDICULOUSLY smart. Hes studying here in this high school thats like 24/7 besides Sundays. So for the past month we´ve been teaching him only on Sundays after church. Its been incredible to see him grow and learn about the gospel. I am so so excited to see him grow in the Young Mens organization.

I´d like to send out a big CONGRATS to my boy Cade Bleazard on his mission call to Cuiaba, BRAZIL!!!!! He will learn the celestial language of Portuguese. Theres something extra special about the youth that serve in Brazil and I know he´ll be an awesome Elder. Seja bem vindo ao Brasil Cade!!!

Hello dear family and friends!! HAPPY MAY! Crazy huh? How does time pass by
so quickly? Nothing is weirder than when you´re in mission conference and
everyone knows you´re an old missionary and everyones trying to send you

This week was a bit of a poopy one. Have you ever heard of Zicka? Its a
sickness you catch from an infected mosquito and you basically die.I dont
reccommend looking up pictures. So I caught zicka and I was on bed rest the
whole week. It takes a while to leave so I dont have much to tell about
this week. My dear companion has been an absolute angel. She´s gonna be an
awesome mom one day. To say the least I´ve been drinking lots of liquids
and saying lots of prayers to get back out in the field.
