I am serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Brazil, Porto Alegre North Mission. I post on this blog every week, so check it out to hear about my life as a missionary!

Week 70

This week we saw miracles happen in the year 2015 and in 2016. On Wednesday one of our investigators was baptized. Paloma is the oldest daughter of Maria from Boa Vista. When we went to pick her up yesterday for church she practically jumped the fence to hop in the car!


Then early Friday morning (New Year's Day) one of our other investigators was baptized. We´d been working with Jéssica for almost 3 transfers and finally she was married and right after, baptized. We told her how she was the first marriage AND baptism of the year (at least in this mission) 2016!

The week was full of farewells as well as I was transferred today. It was sad to have to leave my recent converts, investigators, companion, and the members but I´m excited to start anew in another area.

One family of investigators made a huge churrasco one day for lunch!

Almeri & Elisandro invited us over yesterday night for their FHE (as my last one with them) and they surprised me with a gift and some whipped cream in the face! Gotta love these recent converts!
