Twas a rainy week, hallelujah that it’s not too incredible hot.
Sunday morning we got up nice and early to go fetch some souls to go to church with us. We got up extra early too because the time changed. And we left nice and tired, trekking in the rain, and no one went to church with us. Poo. I don’t like walking to church in the rain when nobody comes with us. But them when we finally arrived at church nice and late, our lovely Maria Teresa was there!
I love when people live the gospel on their own and do the right things because they want too. Que alegria!
And then my dear Gabi showed up at church too! Alegria de novo!
We have interviews with our dear Presidente this week and zone conference too. Shall be marvelous and much needed.
And good news! I just saved a bundle on car insurance by switching to geico! Okay, not really, the closest I get to driving a car down here is just getting run over by one, which has not happened yet because of some little angels I think. hehehe :)
Oh but the real good news… we helped save a broken pigeon yesterday from drowning in the sewer river. Always oppurtunities to do good deeds! You just have to look for them!
Com amor, Sister Owens
P.S. I making lots of snow flakes these days. I could really go for a snow storm.
Here’s some lovely pictures from a funny week. We’ve been having some heaven sent rain and it’s not too hot. Hallelujah. But the mosquitos surely are out and about.
October 6th, I woke up, with one year as Sister Owens!! I also woke up with what appeared to be chicken pox. My goodness the mosquitos attacked me. But all is well. I have now started to use my mosquito net.
We’re finding some lovely souls here in Itaparica. We talked with a girl on the street yesterday who was just sitting on the sidewalk cryign, with a guitar and a backpack. She basically has a horrible life and it’s amazing how the Lord works through others to meet our needs.
I’m sooo grateful to be here. We’re lucky peeps we are.
Here are my pictures from last week and from this week too.
The rodoviara like always was a lovely festa. So good when everybody is together!
