Where's the Turkey?
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Today is P-day in our zone. We had Zone Conference with President/Sister Scisci yesterday. Which was great! Love it!! Got to see all the elders in our Zone. So my last companion Elder Hoch returned to Belem early morning. I stayed at the ZL house for a couple of days until we were told of the transfers information (Thursday). I was told I was gonna serve in Tapajos (my area) With my zone leader E. Garcia. So for about a week I was with him and yesterday at conference I was told my new companion is Elder Teixeira from Brasil. I am excited! And elder Garcia is leaving and they are adding another area in our zone as well. So they were a lot of moving and new missionaries coming. But my companion is the last to come and he gets here tomorrow night. So excited!
This past week was crazy! Had another baptism. Daughter of Sister Glaucia. She is great! Really quite but she has improved her shyness a lot since we started teaching the family. These next two weeks we should have another 2 baptisms maybe 3. But I am so excited!! I know the language is coming. I am slowly understanding a lot more and I feel I am started to talk better. But I practicing not to compare myself and just practice and have faith/patience. But I sure am having the time of my life!! We will have the Zone Natal get together on the 12th! I received my 1st box this past week as well!! THANKS MOM AND DAD!!! But I am great! Heat is still here but this past week we had a couple of days of rain. But starting in January I have been told we get rain like every day!! HECK YEA!!! But I am so grateful for this opportunity to server a mission and I sure do love my family with all my heart! I am grateful for the example for my Mom and my Pops is in my life! Also of my sister! I am filled with such happiness when I know my sister is serving a mission as well and how much blessings my parents are receiving.
I pray this next weeks things settle down and there isn't so much moving and trying to find a companion or something. But hey I know this Church is true and I am grateful for my wonderful blessings and this time I get to represent our Savior Jesus Christ for 2 years of my life! Thanks for everything and I love you all!!!
