August 4, 2014

Hi mom and dad! ( and brothers)

I sure do love you guys! :)

I am staying here in Noel Nutells, probably for the next two transfers. My comp Sister Crane was transfered, and I am now with Sister Jensen. This will be her last transfer, so of course I will probably stay next transfer in this area too. It sure is weird staying. I got used to moving around, but it was nice not having to pack. 

I am excited for next sunday. Our ward is going to be having a big devotional about missionary work. My comp and I are going to speak along with the ward mission leaders. I hope that is will be very spiritual and that lots of people will come!

It sounds like you all had a lot of fun on your cruise. You will have so send some pictures. Sounds like life is moving on for all of you.  You guys are such  missionaries. Parabens na sua trabalho.  :)

Okay so we like to Disney music when we get home at night. Some of the girls have music from Frozen. I am going to have to get that CD when I come home. Those songs are just so cute! 

Our ward mission leader is the best. Sunday he took two of the young men out to do visits and they marked two baptism dates with some of our old investigators that their mom didnt sign the baptism form. Hopefully we will baptize them this week. It would be a great animator for the ward before this big devotional!! We have a lot of potential baptisms, just that either the moms arent signing the form or they have to get married. So this transfer we should have a lot of weddings and baptisms. I am super excited. Also this area is really huge. I walked so much last week from one side to the other doing visits, and I still havent seen every part of our area. 

I´ll be a Sister Training Leader again. I hope that I stay one for the rest of my mission. I really like doing splits with the other Sisters. :) It is fun to see their areas, know their problems, give trainings and still have an area of my own to work in.

Okay, well I love you all a lot!

I hope you have a week full of missionary experiences and lots of joy!

It sounds like you guys are going to have a lot of fun! Be safe on the boat!

I am excited to have lots of experiences like that with people speaking portuguese. It will be super fun to see their faces. :)

I am glad that warrens prayers were answered. I am not looking forward to taking calculus when i get back, it is going to be a lot of work. I am happy that they are going to be starting ar Notre Dame. Have they already moved?

It is neat to see that so many people are going on missions! It really will be the best decision they will ever do. :) I would trade the experiences I have had for anything. 

I am jealous that you are going on a cruise, but I wouldnt want to go because it should be hott. Spending summer here in Manaus makes you greatful that air conditioning exists. I know that you two will have so much fun! 

My week was good. :) Transfers are next week, so we will see what will happen. I want to stay with my comp because I like her so much, but then it is all up to the Lord. 

ANYWAYS, I love you all and am so glad that you are my parents. 

Sorry I didnt have much to say today, but I have sent some pictures and included the stories behind them. :) Those should be fun for people to read. :)
