I loved all the time that I passed in Castro! So I realized I did not even write once this past transfer... But I had a new companion. Her name is Sister Vargas and she is from Sao Paulo!
This transfer I learned so many incredible things and had so many incredible experiences!!!
Emily is 18 years old and the Elders found her when they were walking home one day. She was out in front of her house and the elder asked about directions for a street and then she told them and then asked "Hey are you the Mormons?" They said yes and then asked to return! They started teaching her and she accepted everything right away! She also invited lots of her friends to come over when the missionaries taught! We went with the Elders a few times to teach her and to help her! She is incredible! She says that she wants to serve a mission and become just like us! Her baptism was night and it was so special! She said to the Elders that "the first two people that I want to hug after I am baptized are Suelen (Member) and Sister Hancock!!!" I love her so much! :)
This pastwe got 16 people into one car!!! It was crazy and wonderful to hear everyone in the car talking and excited to come to church!
The hottest day ever!!! We walked really far to get to the house of Emily and when we got there we were all worn out!
I am so grateful for the time that I passed in Castro and for all of the people that I met!
I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and we can read it to find answers and personal revelation! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and that He loves each and every one of us!
I love you all! Thanks for the love and support!
