Wow, this time is flying, in a week I will have 11 months! I got all excited because we didn’t get calls last night for transfers so I thought that I would stay here in Grajaú with Elder L, but during studies today the secretary called us and I am getting transferred! I think that I have a curse because I only have two companions that have stayed with me for more than 1 transfer and I have never stayed in an area for more than 2 transfers. But I like moving and seeing new parts of the mission. I am really excited to see where I will be going. I know that it will be an amazing place and that I will love my new companion.
Anyway this week was awesome. We made cocada at home on Monday, on Tuesday we had our last district meeting and on Thursday we had a mission meeting. It was so cool. Got to see a couple of missionaries from my first district that got to Brasil recently, I hadn’t seen them in 10 months and they said that I looked totally different. I found out that the elders that I trained are now training, so we got a picture of the family. President let us watch Ephraim's Rescue, it’s so sososososossosoo good. Pres. Dalton sent a little clip of him which was really funny, he speaks really good already. Everyone is really excited to meet him and Sister Dalton. Everyone that is leaving gave their testimony, we have a lot of my old leaders going this transfer, my trainer, my old ZL, 2 assistants, and other friends. After the meeting we did a split with the assistants, I went to their area and had a blast. Forgot my umbrella and it ended up raining, but it was all good. Had stake conference too this week, it was focused on the same thing (Austin, TX stake had stake conference as well. The theme was Hasten the Work). On Sunday we had a special broadcast from SLC with Elder Soares and with Elders Ballard and Scott. It was really cool. Elder Scott spoke in Portuguese and was actually pretty good. They sent this transmission for São Paulo and Rio. Then we had lunch at the stake presidente's house and there was a cake 2 feet in diameter. It was huge! This transfer will be really cool, a new president, new leaders, a lot of new missionaries and new experiences. It rained again this week and a leak opened in the ceiling above my bed and so it got soaked and so I slept on half of the bed for two nights, but now I am moving out so not my problem ha ha.
It was cool to see Rach's pics. Hope everyone is enjoying the nice TX weather, sure miss it. Keep smiling and have a great week! Love ya'll.
PS the package didn’t get here yet, probably will be a while because of the cup. Things will get crazy. The other day there was a strike at the train and the streets are all painted and big flags and it's crazy here. In three days it all starts!!!!!!!!!! Still don't know what will happen during the cup.
