Ola Familia!I feel like the words that best describe this week are HOT and wet. It´s been raining everyday, a lot. This cools off the temperature for about half an hour, but when the clouds clear, the sun reflects off the water and it gets even hotter. Also, I´m starting to realize that not all of us stink together. I think it´s just me. Oh well.
It was one of those weeks were all of your appointments fall through, no one keeps their commitments, and baptisms fall (? I am not remembering the English word for this. Yay!). There´s definitely a big focus on baptism and authority here in Brazil, whereas in the states there was more of a focus on repentance and spiritual experiences. It´s really confusing and frustrating sometimes to figure out if what we´re doing here in Brazil is because of the culture or because of tradition/habit. It´s hard to know what to change when things are going badly. But this is Heavenly Father´s work, so I know he´ll help where it´s needed.
I don´t really know what else to say. Everything´s just kind of random bits and pieces of my life here, and it´s getting harder to think in English.
I love this work and the gospel and especially my family! Happy birthday Grandma Hanni! And I think grandma Barkdull´s birthday is coming up too, so para bens para voce!
Eu te amo!
