Boom! Tuesday night as we were finishing our evening planning the loudest thunder I’ve ever heard happened. It had to have been right above us; I didn’t only hear it, I felt it. It shook my soul, really was significant enough to put it as the start of my weekly letter. Crazy!
Mom, thanks so much for typing up my post each week. For deciphering my handwriting you deserve an award and for taking the time to type up these snapshots of my written letter you deserve another. Te amo!
This week was awesome! It was the best week in the field we’ve had for a lont time. It was also a good week in the office. With the workload being divided between Elder Murry and I, I have time to organize our work better and take some breaks during the day too. It’s nice.
I realize I use the word 'it' a lot as I write. Maybe it’s due to the lack I feel of it because there’s not an exactly equivalent word in Portuguese or maybe because it’s just so easy and itty. It. It. It. Kkkk! (hahaha!)
After two months of teaching Ítalo, who is really intelligent and knows the Bible well, he said in our lesson yesterday that he is convinced the Church is true. Que bênção! He understands the doctrine of the restoration and is developing his faith in the restored church. One of my favorite things on my mission is teach people who understand doctrine, are willing and open to learn more, and are diligently searching for the truth. Seeing him grasp the truths of the restoration of the gospel and the priesthood has been a wonderful experience.
Presidente Bührer walked into the office one day with açaí for us!!!!! It was incredible. Another day he walked into the office with root beer and dr. pepper for us! He had ordered a bunch online for his family haha. Working with him has been one of the greatest blessings of my mission, as was working with Presidente Kuceki. How I've been blessed!
It rained a lot this week, which was great because we had about 4 months without anything falling from the sky. It's helped cool things off a little too, although it's still quente demais. I guess it'd be best explained as "It's really, really, really hot here, but because of the recent rain it's only really, really hot now." I hope you guys are enjoying the cooling weather in the US! Que tenham uma semana abençoada.
