Week 25~Don't Worry, Be Happy...

                  Never get tired of this view

Oi gente,

This week was pretty much a rollercoaster. Marcelly had her baptismal interview on Friday and after the interview, Marcelly and our District leader decided to play a joke on us by saying she wasn't prepared and would have to postpone the baptism until December. I thought my companion was going to have a cow! But, thankfully that wasn't the case. Unfortunately however, Marcelly stayed the night at her Dad's house the night before her baptism and told us he was going to give her a ride on Sunday instead of haveing us pick her up. Então, she didn't come yesterday. And she's not answering her phone and wasn't in her house yesterday, so we're hoping everything is okay. I don't know if I mentioned that she's 8 months pregnant, so I don't know if that has anything to do with what happend, but everything will be okay and will work out. If this mission has taught me anything so far it is how to be more calm. Haha just kidding, I've learned a lot more than that. But Brasilians love Bob Marley so it makes sense.

Other than that, there was a soccer game yesterday between São Paulo and Corinthians and Corinthians destroyed São Paulo 6-1 just in case you wanted to know. It's kind of hard not to know here because people go crazy over soccer and throw big parties in the streets. Hahaha

We also had a meeting just for Sister's this week in São Paulo which is very tiring. The bad thing about living in the boonies is that youŕe far away from everything and have to wake up at 5 in the morning to go to the capital. But other than that it's pretty much awesome.

Nothing else to report this week. Just that, missions are hard, but worth it! I've already experienced so many miracles and seen the Lord's hand in this work. Thank you for your prayers!
