So, they do absolutely nothing here in Manaus. I guess Halloween is a bigger deal in other parts of Brazil, but not here. I miss the seasonal festivities. Honestly everything is great, I am feeling good and happy.
It sounds like transfers have passed over Makayla and her Companion Sister Justino.
Yeah, so we were supposed to get a call about transfers Saturday night ... but nothing has come? But, I don´t think we will change anyway. We see the President once every transfer at either a conference, or in an interview. Without a doubt the mission is one crazy adventure, seriously. It has been SO hard learning the language, but I think it is finally starting to come. I have no idea where I will be on Christmas. I think I will be transfered by then.
The temple is always wonderful!!! We have picked up some new investigators, (new people to teach) so we are excited about that. We have had a week of rain, so it has been a little more refreshing. I was asked to give a short talk on missionary work right before sacrament meeting. I think it went fine. I finally stopped being preoccupied with the language this transfer, so that has been a blessing! I was blessed with peace and motivation from three things in particular this week: The temple, music, and the members. I know that Heavenly Father always puts these types of resources in our path. And overall, all that we do is worthwhile, because of the Atonement of Christ. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, becuase of the immense joy that it brings me!
I hope that you all have a wonderful week!
