Week 31

This week was a bit of a roller coaster for me, but everything is OK!  We had transfers last week, and I stayed in Castelão with Elder Oliveira. We found an awesome family to teach last week, and guess what? We found another awesome family to teach this week!  We are super excited to be teaching families, which is what every missionary loves to do, because the gospel is the best way to help with all the aspects of the family. It's so great to see a family learn and accept the gospel together. Our first family didn't make it to church this last week, which was really disappointing for us, but three of the daughters from the second family did. We have been using the Book of Mormon a lot more in our teaching lately, so it was awesome to see each of these three girls with their own copy of the Book of Mormon when we went to pick them up for church. 
One of the elders who we live with got transferred, and his companion is training a new missionary from Honduras, named Elder Molina. He is really cool, and he speaks English! 
We should be moving apartments this next week, which will be awesome because the apartment we have now floods when it rains, and has only one bathroom for four 19 and 20 year olds, with a toilet that doesn't flush. We have to fill up a bucket with water and dump it in, so you can imagine how lovely that bathroom is. Our new house will be a lot better, and we're all super excited to get there!

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers, and have a great week!
