Oi Família! Amo vocês muitoooo. E é isso.
Sister Cunha and I are working so much here. Every night we get home like dead girls and then have to do our planning and I always end up falling asleep writing in my journal, or falling asleep praying on my knees (do that a lot), and I need to be better at going to bed at 1030 like a good sister missionary.
Tis grrrreat being a sister missionary and the peeps love us here so much. I love this area and it’s so good with my dear companion and would be great to stay here for my last transfer. We have transfers March 6th, who knows what will happen. But whatever happens I know I’ll be where the Lord wants me so things will work out.
I’m learning so many wonderful things. I’ve been gone long time and lots has changed. Soon I will no longer have a single sister and I think at least half of all my friends are married people know and lots have kids too. Interessante né.
I hope and PRAY (lots) that you all are well and happy and healthy and prosperous and that you all are praying lots and studying the good word (aka scriptures :)). Heavenly Father loves us lots and wants us to be happy!
Blog(and put these fotos. thanks stacy girl. you’re a champ of all champs.)

Woo hoo! We had a sweeeeet baptism this week in a river! Raimundo is so excellent and he is someone who was truly searching for the truth. And woo hoo he found it and it is so wonderful to be an instrument in the hands of the Lord. I am so so grateful. And soon his dear wife will be a member of the chuch of Jesus Christ too! Yahoo wamu!

I love adventures and this week was full of them! Raimundo wanted to be baptized in a river, so we had to find a river and good baptismal site. Thank goodness we finally have a ward mission leader because he and his wife took care of this all and I am so grateful for the members of the church here. I love Quissamã!

And it is so beautiful here. There are so many fruit trees and we just pick fruit during the day as we’re speed walking around. :) I ate a cactus fruit this week, a yummy little red frutinha. Good thing I had my cute little pocket knife with me to be able to cut the spines and pricklies off the fruit. And I saw a cute little owl too! This world is so good.

I’m learning lots and have lots more to learn the next couple months ! I love these people and know that Heavenly Father loves us so much and put angels in our lives to help us, because we all need lots of help! Thank you for your love and prayers and wish Stacy and Scott and happy wedded life!


Happy quase February!

“God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through
another person that he meets our needs. Therefore, it is vital that we
serve each other.”
 -President Spencer W. Kimball

Happy quase February!
I love Quissamã and am a happy girl because we have a ward mission
leader now, to help us in this grande obra! Woo hoo, my goodness we
were needing a bit of help. The members here help us a lot and lot and
we are teaching lots of lovely souls.
But it is still sooooo difficult to get them to church.

But woo hoo Raimundo was at church for the second time this week and
he’s getting baptized on saturday. He is soooo goood. He has an
appliance repair shop on the street of the church and one day we just
started talking with him and then another day we went back and taught
him and he is excellentíssimo! And he has been searching for the truth
and investigating lots of churches and beliefs. And through reading
the Book of Mormon, he has a nice good solid testimony and said that
this is the last door he’ll be knocking, searching for the truth.

What else… we had a zone meeting and thank you Cottams and grandma
and Hayley and Lilly for my letters. I love mail. Have I mentioned

We’re working with some wonderful less active members here, who have
such strong testimonies. One of these members has a chubby little old
dog named Suzie. And he made us a super fantastic lunch the other day,
vegetarian friendly too! Hallelujah!

And another woo hoo, we’re making cookies today! And we’re going to
have an activity with the young women and make cookies too. Yay

Lots to do here in Quissamã and it is so goooooooood. It’s been like
100+ degrees but for some good reason, I’m still alive. Tis good to be

By the way, Jayme, another ol’ fellow we were teaching, started
singing “500 Miles” by Peter, Paul, and Mary. PPM, so classic. Oh I
love these peeps here. Time is passing rapido!

Love you all. I’ll try and send some Rio sunshine, and por favor send
some cool weather here down under. TTFN! :D
