I am still in a trio - until Tuesday!! and then I´ll probably train. They´ll call us today and let us know everything. My companions right now are Sister R and Sister C. Sister C is 20 and from Rondonia, Brasil and Sister R is 19 and from Curitiba. and guess what? she has 20 brothers and sisters!!! Beat our family by a ton! Its funny whenever we meet people because whenever I say however many brothers and sisters I have, they give the usual surprised/ impressed response and then she says how many she has and well.... its just a really funny reaction.
but yeah. the mission started with five of us sisters - there are four more coming tomorrow and so everyone will train and someone will be in a trio. and that´ll make nine sisters on the mission - pretty much doubled! and then the next transfer - president said that there are NINE sisters coming, which means that EVERYONE´ll probably train - even those who will get here tomorrow. well... at least that´s my guess as to what´ll happen cause I don´t really think he´ll put someone training two.
Hey Mom - what would you think if I decided to stay more time on the mission? please say yes! :)
Oh... and what is this article that they wrote about me, Laura and Michelle? I haven´t read it, but its made its way all the way to Brasil. haha. I think they sent a copy of it to President Lima, who sent it to our mission. And well... I think that its passed to everyone except to me! hahaha. Church , one of the members who put his papers in to serve a mission, came up to me and showed me how he had put it on facebook and sent a copy to the bishop. Although I´m not sure how much they all understand cause it was still in English. haha but if you have a copy of it, could you send it to me? I think it must have been written awhile ago cause it said I had ten months on the mission.
