So this week was great :) I am feeling a whole lot better and a lot of funny things happened. The big wedding we are planning is this Thursday!!! We are doing the bride's hair and makeup, we found a dress that fits perfectly! A lady in the branch is making a three story cake, and the branch is doing a big dinner for them. I am praying everything turns out :) Then Saturday is the baptism!! I hit my 6th month mark!!! WAHOOO! Weird to think that this time next year I will be home, because I remember what I was doing this time last year and it feels like yesterday.
I have already come to love the people here, but there is one family in the branch that I have already become super close to. Their dalmatian dog had 8 puppies a few weeks ago and now all of the puppies have spots except one She is completely white. They named the white one Bailey (because I am super white compared to the people here) and are going to keep only her :) hahaha I will take a picture with the little puppy this week so y'all can see next week. She is sooo cuute!! And my comp is mad because the family didn't name a puppy after her!
Funny story of the week:
My companion, our ward mission leader and I were walking at night to visit an investigator. We were walking on a dark road that only has forest on either side. I look down and see a snake slither under my foot!!! I screamed ``cobra (snake)`` and ran!!! My companion then screams and runs the opposite direction. I turn around to see our ward mission leader (a bi,g manly man) jumping up and down and screaming like a girl!!! My companion and I were laughing for a good hour after and still haven´t let him live it down. I just wish we could have gotten his reaction on video.
I am doing well... it is crazy to see all the ways I have changed in just six short months. I teach Gospel Principles alone every week, and I don´t feel a bit nervous like I used to before my mission. Talking to strangers, eating weird food, and speaking Portuguese are completely normal now :) I am happy here and just trying my best to be better everyday.
Love y'all lots!! Have a great Spring Break!!!!!!
This is my favorite fruit here....the Goiaba!!
