Hello friends and family! This week has been amazing! This week my companion and I got the opportunity to go to Juiz de Fora and we with our district did one of our mission president´s last interviews before he goes home in June! I can´t believe it! Even mission president´s deserve a break! It was so amazing to talk to President Cascardi! He´s definitely a man of great knowledge and dicisipline. His favorite words are repent..and be obedient! LOVE HIM We had the opportunity to do divisão? (I can´t translate that in my brain right now) We went out with the Sister training leaders and it was soo great! I had to do splits with my mom!(: My mission mom! It was soo great. I felt like i was starting my mission all over..with the knowledge I recieved. This week was amazing! One of the miracles we saw there was so many, but yesterday a member offered us a ride to an appointment and we said no thank you we rather walk (since it was after lunch we were SOO full) My companion and I were king of regretting not excepting a ride because it was a little hot, then we saw a man we had talked to the week before name Claudio! He said he had been reading the book of mormon his nephew has and wanted to come to church! We told him that that book WILL change his life and he comes to church and excepts to follow Christ by being baptized like he was! He immidietly said his life could definitely be alot better and excepted our help! IT WAS A MIRACLE. I know that Heavenly father sees our effort when we invite everyone to change! I love you soo much everyone thank you for your prayers!

Hello everyone!!! Holy cow, this week was AMAZING!!!!!! Sister Tamblay and I are sweating(: THis week was definitely a week of amazing things! I don´t have tons of time, sorry! but An amazing experience I would like to share was that we are teaching two boys! Pedro Enrique 13 and Rian 12! We´ve been teaching them for about two weeks and are excited! They both live with their grandma and their grandma is fine with us teaching them, but when it came to ask her about baptism she said we would have to talk to their parents. Their parents are divorced. We decided to talk to their mom first since she lives in Tres Rios and their dad lives in another town next to us. There was a member Betty who said that she knew their mom and wasn´t a very nice person. My companion and I were super super nervouse to talkt to her, but we knew we had too! We fasted Saturday into Friday so we know what we could say to her! Sunday night Betty went with us to visit her and it was a mircle because she said YES! She said she´s noticed they´ve been a little rebelish and wanted them to change and she even agreed to go to church with them every sunday!(: I know that Heavenly father truly did touch her heart and did soften it! What a miracle! WE are soo excited to keep helping this wonderful family!!
I hope that makes sense my english is getting worser and worser everyday!
I love you all soo much! I hope each of us and pray and fast and recieve answers from HEavenly father!!

Tuesday night we all sleeped in Juiz de Fora and it was unreal because I felt like I had just been there being trained my self! Not so long ago! My new companion is from Santiago Chile!!!(: She´s 19 and the SWEETEST person I´ve ever met! She´s so calm and quiet. She speaks perfect spanish(: and Portugues! She´s trying so hard to forget her spanish It´s hard to forget your native language!
I prayed a tons this week! It´s like starting fresh! I get to re learn alot of things I learend in the beginning! We are doing so great though! Sister Tamblay and I are preparing a boy named Pedro Enrique for baptism the 24! he´s a members nephew and he´s soo solid and excited! He´s little shy, but he´s 13! what to expect! We are also teaching a little girl name Maria eduarda that´s 8! She comes to church with her neighbors who are super active! We are teaching her and working with her family! Her mom´s name is Andrea and she loves us, but is a little skeptical about letting Maria be baptized. we are praying and fasting that her mom´s heart can be softend!(: Today we have a huge family home evening planned that a 4 investigators are coming! We are so excited! We hope that they can feel the spirit during our message and our sincerity of helping their families be more united and happy! We are teaching some really amazing peeople!(: and this week is going to be amazing no doubts about it!(: I´m sorry i don´t have tons of time, but know that I love this gospel, I love being apart of Christ church!

HELLO WONDERFUL FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!First of all. I love you guys soo much! I hope you all know that(: I hope you all enjoyed Conference, wasn´t it wonderful? Everything that was said, taught, preached..I know it´s true with all my heart. Someone once told me that Conference is different when you are a missionary, and I testify that´s true! I felt soo uplifted not only in belhaf of myself, but all my investigators. I felt alot of the things that were said is what they need! Elder Bednar said it right! BAPTISM! There is NO WAY we can recieve all these blessing if we don´t take the first leap of faith! I know that all other churches are amazing wonderful great christians, but I know that Christ he established His only one true kingdom here on earth and after his death those prescious things were lost. I know that God loves us so much that he called a prophet to be restore Christ´s church here once again! I know that authority is here once again on earth to baptize, to bless and to seal families for all eternity! I hope we can all pray that we can share this truth with everyone. I know the Book pf Mormon is proof of that!(: As we read and pray our lives change and we become the people and children God wants us to be! I love Conference so much!
So I recieved a phone call this morning and my companion Sister Prado is being transfered! I´m staying WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and my companion is....I DON`T KNOW..because i´m TRAINING!!!! BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHFdsjkfj dskljfklsdj fwiojfklçdsjfofjkl sdfklasjklr..That means i´m terrified. I feel soo scared and indaquate. I know the mission president prayed and recieved revelation and so i´m holding on to that faith! I travel to Juiz de Fora to pick her up tomorrow and i find out who she is wedneday! PRAY FOR ME PLEASE!(: SHe is going to loves Três Rios the members are wonderful and we are teaching amazing people!(: I hope that together we can learn and bring our brothers and sisters to the fold(:
I love you all so much! Thank you for the prayers and letters! Thank you GArden City youth! I love you! I pray that we can all take in what Jeffrey R Holland said and hold these words in our hearts forever!(: until next confreence and that we will not esquecer que Deus nos ama! Not forget that god loves us!(:
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
