Vou Vencer!

Oi! Well with 3 days left in the CTM my heart is breaking. But also I am so stinking excited to go to the field and serve the people!!

Highlights this week.

Last pday after emailing our Instructor Irmã Tamiris took us to go get fancy Brasilian icecream called Sorvete and its more like Sorbet or sherbet but its super yummy and it was açai flavor with strawberries and sweetened condensed milk and granola. They know how to keep me happy:) Also I have gained 3 Kilos! Boom.

Also this week I got pretty sick and ended up asking my District Leader for a blessing. It was amazing. Nothing super crazy happened, although I did feel way better (hooray!). But I was reminded of the power of the priesthood and the marvelous blessing that it is. The priesthood is ultimately one of the biggest most important differences in this church from others. The power and authority to act in God's name allows us to truly experience the full joy of the gospel. Because of the priesthood I have been able to be baptized and confirmed and recieved the gift of the Holy Ghost, called by a prophet of God to be a missionary and a representative of Jesus Christ, and I know that my family is sealed together for all eternity. So many blessings in my life have been a result of Heavenly Father's love and his gift of the priesthood on this earth. I'd love to hear, how has the Lord blessed your life?

Next point... Ive discovered some new species of bug that really enjoys biting me. It sorta feels like a mosquito except it oozes and occasionally bleeds where it bit me. #lovingBrasil

Also we had a super amazing devotional this week!! Actually we had two! One we watched a video recording of the Apostle Jeffrey R Holland speaking to missionaries a few years ago. And WOW. One of my favorite things that he said was:

"Missionary Work is so hard because salvation is not a cheap experience.... it is supposed to require something of our souls"

The other devocional was apparantly not with Elder Anderson like Sis Swenson told me, but we had Elder Mazzagardi of the 70 come, and he talked about families a lot. \he had us read D&C 4 and pointed out that if this work is so marvelous even to the Almighty God, how much more Awe-inspiring is our holy privilege to help. And Families are Forever!!!

Also, apparantly my companions and I got to be too good of friends with the MTC President and his wife because Sis Swensen (after we went to borrow some boy pants for a Hispanico sister in our Physical Atividade time who didnt bring any) decided to ask us to teach Relief Society on sunday... because the lady who usually teaches is having surgery:( So that wwill be an adventure!!

Ok I dont have anything else to say but I love you all and miss you!! Also I love the flowers here!
