Welp, this week did not get too exciting. Just another normal week in the field that passed by like no other. I am seriously convinced that missionary time passes by a lot faster than when I was home. But we did run around all crazy like to prepare to check on all of our investigators and prepare alguns(others) to be baptized this upcoming week (Janicleide e Hélia)!!! Ah we are super excited for them and know that the gospel will bless their lives so much!
We also visited all of our investigators that need to get married this week to see how they were doing and their thoughts about casamento(marriage). Most of them realmente want to get married but are, at vezes(times), a little bit lazy to go sign a piece of paper. So we're working on this. We love talking with them about the temple and how they can be sealed to their family for time and all eternity. Their faces just light up when we talk about this and we're hoping that it will motivate them to get married a bit sooner. But it is something that we can't force. They need to have this desire but of course we're there to help discover or encourage this desire. I love working with families because I know that one day they can have an eternal family just like me!
Saturday our ward combinou(combined) with another ala to do a mini CTM(mission training center) and Sister De Lima and I were able to participate!! So from 9am to noon, the youth se reuniram(gathered) to have a devotional, zone meeting, and then some praticas! Then after lunch, they were divided into duplas(2) and sent out into the field! They were to do 20 street contacts per dupla and visited some menos ativos(less active) to share a message with them. Then at 8pm, they headed home. We only were able to stay for the part of the ctm but talked to some of them afterwards. They said they really enjoyed it but it was a lot harder than they imagined. I think this is a great idea that really helped the youth get a taste of what it will be like to serve a mission. I sure would have liked to have done something like this before but it's a little too late now.
That's all I got for now. Guys, I love you all so much and am so grateful for all your love and support! Have a superly awesome week!! Até mais!
