Week 66

Dear Family & Friends,

Just a short note this week.

Thanks for the family updates - I will keep praying extra for Jorja. 

My week was pretty normal. It´s going well with Elder Klein, he is a cool guy. We should have a baptism next week, Gabriele. She is the sister of the two that were baptized a few weeks ago. 

As you can see in the pictures, we had a really fun family night with some of the members in Eusebio! Everyone brought something to eat for dinner and we had a spiritual thought and a game afterwards. 

I am learning a lot about following the spirit and this week we had a lot of good experiences following the spirit.

I love you! Thanks so much for all the support and prayers and everything you do for me!

Week 65

Good to hear that everyone adjusted to the routine without too much complaint! That's kind of how I feel every Tuesday hahaha. This last week was pretty good, my new companion is Elder Klein. I haven´t taken a picture with him yet, but I'll get one next week. We are getting along well so far! He is pretty easy to live with, cleans up his messes, showers regularly, its going good! 

New Year´s Eve and the next two days were rough because everyone was planning to party, partying, and recovering.  On Sunday, Patricia and Graziele were confirmed, which was great! They even came to church by themselves, which is SUPER rare. 
It´s been pretty uneventful....we´re basically trying to find new people to teach.  We have been teaching a lot of families, and its been going well!

I am super excited for a new year. I can´t believe that I am already in the year that I'll go has really been passing pretty fast, especially after I hit one year. 8 short months and I'll be home!

I hope yall are having a great new year!

I love you!
