Transfers are today and... I´m staying! Here´s for a third transfer in Cidade Nova! Yes, Sister Torres is staying too, which is great because last week we started to teach each other our languages. My dreams of being tri-lingual would´ve been pretty short lived if one or both of us had been transferred. Right now, it´s pretty funny hearing Sister Torres practice, ´´Good morning Bishop! How are you?´´ for half an hour everyday with the mission language book, but I have a feeling it´s going to get old pretty fast.
This week was really great in terms of investigators at church. The young women´s president here is amazing. She has a really crazy child, her husband´s not doing so well in the church, she´s the only member in her family, and the young women are really struggling, but she never gets discouraged! Just works even harder. She always finds at least an hour to teach with us every week, offers to do family nights, follows up with our YW investigators, and always invites our investigators to sit with her at church. I love the fact that instead of ´´cursing God and [dying]´´ as Job´s friends counseled, she´s letting faith define her trials by putting Heavenly Father first and pushing herself to do more. I´ve learned, and am still learning, this a thousand times over on my mission. It´s a response so simple and perfect that it´s simply easy to forget. How can we get through trials? As Moses would say, ´´look to God and live´´.
Maybe it sounds like I complain about the food here a lot. I actually really like it! I LOVE all the new fruits and vegetables they have here. However, I think I will forever be a chicken breast and normal cow parts lover. Strange meat just doesn´t sit well with me.
Well, time is up! I love you all so much! I love sharing the gospel with others. There really is no other work as important, life changing, or life fulfilling as guiding people to the restored truth.
P.S. Donations to my Jeep fund are greatly appreciated.
