Those Popper Things

Hello my dears! I hope you are all doing wonderful! I have a bunch of pictures so It´s going to be short again :( But I will feel you in on details!

dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd... YEP! I´m staying! I´m with 2 other brasileiras! WOOOOHOOOO! We´re staying in the same area and continuing to work hard! This is super good because we were originally going to stay, and Sister M had to go on a division and she would leave us alone. 2 Americanas that only have 6 weeks of experience teaching the world. Oh yeah baby. But it didn´t happen. Probably good ;) BUT I have two wonderful companions! Sister M and Sister L! They are both wonderful and nice and beautiful and I think we are going to have lots of fun! I´m a bit scared though because naturally it will be easy for them to talk to each other than the american, but we will see. I hope I can communicate! :P I think i´m going to learn the language pretty fast ;)

Things I discovered

So. I looked on the wrapper of the recess bar. Did you realize that Recess has fiber AND protein! So, in a nutshell. ( haha get it.) RECESS ARE HEALTHY! What a nice wonderful discovery! ;) I already ate all of them btw. And I loved every single one. Licked the wrapper on all of them :) Also those peppermint things? Probably sent from heaven.... ;)

Fireworks are legal here. Very loud. New Year's was crazy. It sounded like the revolutionary war. (Not that I would know...) But I´ve come to a conclusion that it is good that fireworks are banned in MN ;)
READ YOUR SCRIPTURES. They are so legit. I wish I could tell you everything I learned this week, but I never have time. But look at Ephesians 2:10 CR a and c. I love cross references. Did I tell you that? Oh. And Mormon 9 all of it. Another one of the bosses in the Book of Mormon. Man oh man. You´re gonna quake in your boots while you read that chapter. So good. 

MOM- You´re going to love this. Yesterday at lunch they had green olives in the salad so I decided to try them. And I think I discovered that I think that I li8ke green olives. So mom, when I return, we can eat green olives together ;)

What we did this week

This week was really slow. EVERYONE was at the beach and travelling and everything seemed to fall through. BUT this week, I absolutely positively know is going to be better :) AND we did our first service this week! We went to a recent converts house and helped her paint her kitchen!!! SO MUCH FUN! The pictures tell it all! It was funny because we didn´t have already mixed paint so we had to do it by eye, so one wall was darker than the other and we had to paint it again. Hilarious. :) But, it looks wonderful now! We´re going to help them move the rest of the stuff into their house this week!

Those popper things

Alright. Remember those popper things? Those tiny things that you turn inside out and wait for them to fly up into the sky? Those ones that make you giggle like a little child? It´s funny how  these popper things, no matter where you are, whether it be in the living room kitchen, or bedroom, still make you giggle like a little kid. Well, Heavenly father gave me a popper thingy this week. Something that despite where I was, I giggled like a little child. This week we visited our investigator that drinks and lost his family because of it. And we asked him to pray at the end of the lesson. The prayer was so simple but yet so incredible. A simple plea to heavenly father for help and for love. I´m a big baby so I teared up during the prayer, but it was truly powerful. Even though I didn´t understand all of the words. It´s so wonderful that we have these wonderful little popper things in our life, isn´t it? :)

Well that´s all :) BRACE YOURSELF FOR PICTURES! :)

I love you all so much! Don´t change! Be yourself!
