Today is my pday! I won´t be having pday on Monday...
We went to the temple today so that´s why! Our pday got switched :P
But let me first just appologize for last week´s email :( I was so stressed the entire day because I didn´t get to send an actual email to yall!!!
So interesting things that happened this week.. we were supposed to have a Zone Conference, but there was a huge strike and it got canceled, and then canceled again. Needless to say, our plans got moved a ton and we ended up knocking on a lot of doors this week 😂
Also we were teaching a lesson yesterday and a dog randomly came up and started peeing on Sister Libanio´s umbrella. So that was pretty hilarious.
IT WAS FINALLY COLD THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got to wear tights three days and even use boots on one of them! Literally heaven. It´s so hard working in the heat. I´m pretty stoked that 1. it´s starting to get cooler, and 2, I won´t ever have to live through another summer here in Brasil! WOOP.✌
Today there was an American sister and her husband at the Temple! They were from Alpine, Utah. It was soooooo great talking with her. Made me miss home just a liiiiiiiiiitle bit 😛 (okay actually a huge lot).
Also, WE`RE GONNA HAVE A BAPTISM TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!! Mariana is going to get baptized! Mariana is Eliane´s daughter, who was baptized about a month ago 😊 I´m pretty excited. Next week I´ll send pictures!
But hey, I love being a missionary. It´s seriously the best thing ever. I also love being a Mormon. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I have had so many spiritual witnesses of that in my life. I know that Temples are literally Houses of God, here on the Earth. I know that we hare children of our Heavenly Father. I know He has a plan for each of us, and if we seek Him, keep His commandments, we will have immense joy- here and forever.
Who doesn´t want immense joy?
I´m here to tell you where you can find it- by learning about the life of Jesus Christ; by studying about His Atoning sacrifice; by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon.
Easter is in a few weeks. During Easter we have the incredible opportunity to honor and worship our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives. I know He loves us. I know He knows us each perfectly.
So I´d like to challenge each of you to this (almost) Easter season, prepare a little more for Easter than you did last year. Make this Easter a spiritually growing experience for you.
I love and miss you all so much,
