Week 38~High Times, Low Times...

Hey people! 

This week has been a little crazy. Where to begin?

So we had an emergency transfer this week because President del Guerso said that another american sister isn´t progressing like she should so she´s here now with me in Perdizes and Sister Haggard was transferred to Taboão. Actually it was kind of funny when President picked up Sister Haggard because he told me the new sister doesn´t understand very well so if we encounter a situation where neither of us are understanding anything, good luck to us. Ohhhh President......

But yeah this will be a great learning and serving opportunity. Before the transfer we had exchanges with sister training leaders and we had to go visit Ana Laura (that girl who was baptized when I passed here in Perdizes!!). The problem is Ana Laura lives in the Elders´ area and the only time I went there was when I was only 3 weeks old in Brasil. So we got very lost after we visited her and took the wrong buses, but we finally made it back in the area around 7:30..... But like I said, it´s a great learning opportunity. 

As for our golden Vagner, he was progressing very well and he loves the church and we marked hmi for the 5th of March, but he was talking to his brother-in-law who lives in Salt Lake, but isn´t a member, and he said in order to be a member you have to pay tithing. And he kind of didn´t like that because he thinks tithing is of man and not of God  So he told us he would still meet with us and go to church, but to hold off on the baptism. That really was a bummer. So our focus this week is to find a lot more people. The Lord is really trying our faith because this area hasn´t had a baptism in 6 months, but God is a God of miracles, I know that much.

I think that´s about it for this week. Thank you for your prayers! Until next week!
