Week 19 - June 12, 2017

This week has been pretty good. Sister Ribeiro and I are still figuring out how to function as a companionship, but she has a lot of good ideas about strengthen the branch here and help it grow, as well as how to find new people to teach. 

Also, we have another companionship living in our house for the moment. They're working in the next city over, which already has one companionship, but the house of the sisters there is super tiny. So, until someone can find another house or apartment for them to live in, we'll have 4 sisters living in our house. Which is a little complicated when it comes to showering and getting ready in the morning because we only have one shower with warm water...but we're figuring it out.

The rain and cold are continuing here stronger than ever. Part of our area includes a city across the River Jacuí, which you have to take a boat to get to. When the rain is super strong, the boat doesn't run, so we can't visit our investigators over there. Which is super bad, because apparently it rains here basically all winter. 

Other than that, this week has been pretty normal. J (the investigator that is super close to baptism) didn't come to church yesterday because he had to work, but I'm praying super hard that he'll come next Sunday so that he can be baptized the following Saturday. 

As for my Portuguese, it's a lot easier than it was in the beginning of course, but I'm not gonna lie, it's freaking hard. Since Sister Ribeiro is a native speaker, she's been helping me a lot, but the freaking subjunctive tenses will be the death of me.

I don't really have anything else to update you guys on....hope everyone has a fantastic week!
Este evangelho é verdadeiro e Deus ama cada um se vocês. (This gospel is true and God loves each one of you.)
