Wow! Yesterday was my one year and one month mark!!! Where is time going? People here are already starting to put Christmas decorations up because Halloween and Thanksgiving don´t exist. Haha!
This week was full of splits with the Sisters that we take care of. I got to go on a division to the wealthiest part of Manaus, Ponta Negra (where the temple is). We ate a members home there, and I was so weirded out because the house had AC and they had just gotten back from a trip to the USA. SOOO they gave me a bunch of Butterfingers and Reeses!! It was the best day :)
Then on Friday I got to do splits with a greenie!! She has been in the field for 2 weeks! It made me remember how it was a year ago. However, I loved it because it made me think back to that motivated spirit that new missionaries have. Everyone arrives in the field with so much energy wanting to change the world. She really helped me remember to keep pushing forward.
My companion, Sister Garcia and I are the best of friends. I feel like I have known her for sooo long. On Sunday in Sacrament meeting I was feeling a little down. Sister Garcia tapped me on the shoulder and passed me a note... when I opened it she had written just some things to make me laugh and some encouragement. It´s like we have companion telepathy hahaha. I am really hoping I stay with her another transfer!!
This week we are going to baptize two families!!! One is the family that got married awhile back. They finally got back from traveling. And the other family is Isael´s brother. He and his wife know the church is true and have had many confirmations and cool experiences that I will tell when I get home. It is going to be the most incredible week! When I was interviewed by my Stake President before my mission he said that there was a family here waiting for me... I have spent my whole mission searching for this family and let´s just say that I have no doubt it is them! It is going to be so special.
I love you guys more than y'all know <3
Have a great week!!!!
