Sister Publins and I
I am living in the same house as two other sisters and I just love them!!!
Here are some random stories from the past few weeks:
-We were trying to find a less active member's house, so we were walking around, knocking doors, trying to find her. Then a little boy said "I know where she lives! Follow me!" So we started following him and we asked, "You know Rosa?" and he said "umm I don´t know..." and then he stops in front of a pink (rosa) house and said "Wait Rosa doesnt have a rosa house?"
-There was a gecko on the wall and I tried to get it off and then it started walking on the ceiling and when it was right above my head it FELL ON MY FACE! The best part is that Sister Pereira got it all on camera!
-In English class one day we were trying to have conversations with the students. I asked this one guy "What food do you like?" and he responded "How old is your dad?" ...um what??
-I got to spend the day of transfers with my old companion Sister HULME, because my companion got transferred and my new companion wouldn't be arriving until the next day! It was my Birthday and Sister Hulme made me a cake, bought me Acai, lots of people sang happy birthday and this guy on the street selling jewelry ended up giving me this cool wire ring for free! When I got home the day after, we celebrated with PIZZA!
-Recently I have been unable to speak complete sentences in English without saying at least one thing in Portuguese. "It is mais facil sometimes!"
ALSO THE BIGGEST MIRACLE HAPPENED THIS WEEK! So in the last email I talked about Cristian and that we found Cristian because we were actually looking for Mateus, who we had met on the bus! We couldn't find Mateus and we had literally looked for him for 2 weeks straight! Anyways... we were sitting in our house making lunch, because we had lunch at home that day! Then someone buzzed the intercom! Sister Pereira went over and a boy was selling door to door kitchen towels! At first she said "No thanks! we already have enough kitchen towels!" Then Sister Johnsen went over and saw him and her mouth fell open and she said quietly, "I THINK THAT IS MATEUS!!!!!!" then Sister Pereira asked "What is your name????" and he said "MATEUS!!!" then we said, "ONE MINUTE!!!" and all ran outside to talk to him! We asked him if he remembered talking to us on the bus that one day and he said yes!!! He said that he went to the church one time but it was closed because he didn't know the hours!!! BUT HE LITERALLY KNOCKED ON OUR DOOR!!! Our investigator that we thought maybe was just one the three Nephites, literally RANG OUR INTERCOM!!! It was incredible! I know that Heavenly Father led him to our door!
We had Zone Conference about a week ago! We talked a lot about the Book of Mormon.
"Even if you feel like you know the Savior, we can get to know Him 100X better, reading the Book of Mormon!"
Kuskus (Couscous) with our District
Zone conference and I got to see my old companion Sister Cunha!
Bryan got baptized this past Friday!
I know that the Book of Mormon is true! I finished reading it! and I truly learned so much about my Savior, Jesus Christ, and how we can come unto him! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and He loves each and of us more than we can imagine! If you are not reading the Book of Mormon each day, I invite you to read and Come unto Christ!
Love you ALL! :)
