Time just flies by sometimes. I feel like it was 2 days ago
that I was writing another email.
I cant write all that happened. But Ill
write a couple of experiences fast.
1) Im forgetting my life before the
mission haha. I am actually forgetting how to talk in English. Every day we have
language study where we help our brazilian sisters that are living in our house
with english and they help with portuguese. But I am learning...as is everyone
else that I am forgetting english and that I no longer am a good teacher for
pronunciation, but they have to ask Sister Bullen haha. Its actually really
funny. And everything here is normal for me now. People ask me what its like in
USA, but I dont remember.
2) Sister Bullen is great! She is a great
missionary already! (I dont know what they are doing in the CTM/MTC, but they
are getting better as they come!)
3) We visited with an investigator this
week. And we seriously broke some ice with her. She is really stubborn and its hard
for us to explain the importance of baptism with authority, and the importance
of going to church. We had a really good lesson with her talking about the
importance of baptism and not drinking coffee more. And I think it finally
clicked. For a least a little bit. And she said that she doesnt want to get
baptised right now...but eventually. Thats a lot better than last time we talked
to her! And she prayed at the end of the lesson and it was an AWESOME prayer!
She asked for help and guidance and all that kind of stuff. I was super pumped
after. The spirit was strong!
4) Also...another investigator....a type of
eternal investigator. We had a lesson with her. And afterwards she said....wow,
if you two keep talking...youll get me converted really fast! Heck
5) "I ran into 2 posts this week...." [I have to add...as a Mom of Sister Empey...this is normal for her haha!!! She is forever tripping or running into stuff...it's actually pretty hilarious...we as a family, just shake our heads :) ]
6) We had a lot of
investigators in the church the week. And a lot of them were kids to watch a
baptism of their friends. And we sat in the back. Seriously....I thought I would
go hide in a corner because it was so crazy watching like 6 kids running in and
out of the sacrament room. Ya....I thought you would all laugh at watching me. [ya...I can picture this too!]
"So glad Im not having any kids ANY time soon" [don't be fooled...she LOVES children!!!]
But anyways....so much for
an hour huh?
Gotta go! Love you all! Have a fabulous week! And everybody...
think of me walking in Brazil making everyones life better
