So this will be super quick!!!!
My birthday was so much better than I could have asked for... My companion woke me up at 6:30 with the sound of balloons popping in my ears and singing happy birthday in English! She had decorated the whole room and had chocolate, a shirt and some other goodies laid out for me. Then our district threw me a birthday party after our district meeting :) Several Irmãs (sisters) in the ward gave me small gifts and then we had a great big Family Home Evening/birthday party with tons of food and three cakes. I felt so loved!!!!!! I will never forget my 20th birthday :)
Also I was transferred to Manaus! I am in the area of President and Sister Castro, Adrianopolis. I am super close to the mission office which means I will actually receive packages and stuff in before 2017!! hahahahaha!!
My companion is Sister Creel from California. I was called at Sister Training Leader so I have the privilege of taking care of other sister missionaries in the mission. I will make sure they are getting along, following the rules, happy, and go on weekly divisions with them :) I super excited!!!! I am also living with another set of Sisters.... which will be weird to live 4 in one SMALL house but I am excited! I am sorry I don´t have too much time to write, but just know that I am good, healthy and excited to get to work here in my new area!!!!
Tomorrow is my 11 month mark! AAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
I LOVE Y'ALL SOOO MUCH!!! THANKS FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! I CRIED AS I READ OVER 60 EMAILS WISHING ME A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY! <3
