Sooooo this week it was COLD! I never ever ever thought I would say that here in the Brazil Manaus Mission. It was about 15 degrees Celcius (60 degrees F) one day. I was wrapped in my blanket during personal study and actually wore my hair down for the whole day. It seriously was a miracle!
We had an investigator that was progressing so well and then started hiding from us Wednesday. We were so sad because he was ready to be baptized. We prayed and prayed and prayed with our leaders at the training on Friday. Saturday morning he called and said he wanted to baptized that day!!! The Lord had touched his heart through prayer. He was baptized and confirmed :)
Funny story of the week:
We were making contacts in the street and I stopped a man and explained to him about the gospel of Jesus Christ. My companion left him with a pamphlet and as we were turning to leave he says, `´Can I ask you a question... can I kiss you?`` I was taken off guard that turned and around and took about 5 steps back and said, ``NOOOO.`` My companion was waving her arms saying, `´não pode não pode!!`` hahhaaha We explained that we are missonaries. He then returned the pamphlet and walked away. We got a good laugh after.
I am happy here in Rio Branco. I love our area, because it is the center of the city and we have lots of people to talk to. The work here is completely different from Manaus. Our leaders have a completely different vision and I am progressing so much. My companion and I are trying to do everything right/obey with exactness. I have begun to see a new light in my mission.
