Amo minha missão
Compal "Best juice out there"
After 13 months, her bag finally gave out
Ola minha querida família!!
Hey guys! That is so crazy about how famous Brooke and Jason are! That article was so cool! I am still blown away! So Sister Harper and I had a day out in Lisboa and we got back a little late so I don't have much time again.
To start off nothing seemed to really be going right this week. we would go to our scheduled appointments and they literally all fell through. Contacts in the street didn't go very well as well. We were feeling pretty down and I literally have never been so tired in my life. I thought college was hard! Haha Well I was praying because of course I just thought it was all my fault but then i realized that I will never be a perfect missionary. My purpose here is to rely on my Savior and my Father in Heaven. It is amazing how much I am changing as I need to rely on them. I am seriously so thankful and happy.
So for a funny story. Last night we were knocking doors and we came to this one door which was opened and we said,´´Hello.´´ And this man walked up, we began explaining that we are missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and he said,´´Nao quero nada, mas se voces quisserem voces podem ver futebol (I don't want anything but if you guys want you can watch soccer) I seriously laughed so hard. we then talked to him a little in his doorway and he said he was making bread and I asked him how we can make Portuguese bread and he said, ´´Its easy just flour, yeast, a few eggs and a little bit of milk and that's it.´´ I laugh hard again and told him it must be a Portuguese secret that they don't give to us foreigners because literally that is what everyone says when you ask how to make bread. haha
Okay so I want to invite all of you guys to do something this week with me. I want to just thank Heavenly Father in my prayers this week and I just had the feeling to invite you all to do the same. We are so blessed.
I am so thankful for my mission. I am seriosuly so happy and I love serving here. I love you all sooooooo much! Stay safe! I pray for you always.
