Transfersssss. I am entering my 8th transfer already!!! Wow
This week we had two baptisms!! One was of an 82 year old man - Alcides. His daughter is a super active member in our ward and has been praying for years and years that his heart would be softened and he would be baptized. Finally, on Friday he entered the waters of baptism :) He didn´t want anyone at the baptism... only his family and us. It was so spiritual, but what is even better is that in one year all his family can be sealed in the temple. His wife died three years ago and she was a faithful member of the church. Her only dream was to be sealed to her family in the temple. Finally it can happen :)
The baptism was of an young man - Robert. He has been attending seminary for two months with some friends that invited him. He ended up loving the church and had a desire to be baptized. It was so cool because all the young men and woman in the ward showed up to support him at his baptism. It just goes to show the power an invitation to church can make.
Also at our lunch appointment of Wednesday I ate armadillo!!! The lady brought out some strange meat and I asked, ``Irmã what type of meat is this?? She responded tatu`` ...which I later discovered is ARMADILLO. It wasn´t terrible but wasn´t that great either :/
Funny story of the week:
I was walking to an appointment after lunch when I heard/felt something plop on my head. I look up and a dumb bird was sitting on the power lines. I turned to my companion and said, ``please don´t tell me that I have bird poop in my hair!!!`` She just started busting up laughing!!!! Sure enough the bird pooped on my head hahaha. We had to go this appointment though so I went and taught with poop in my hair, but afterwards we went home and I washed my hair haha ahhhh
PS HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and HAPPY 17TH BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST FRIEND MADDIE KATE!!!! I LOVE YOU :))))))))))))))))
