Sorry about the short emails. Its just cause everything is super crazy busy. We only have an hour to e-mail.
Everything here is going well... pretty normal.... The best thing to see though is the progress of the recent converts. V, who was baptized this month and bore testimony on the day of her baptism, was asked to give a ten minute talk this coming Sunday, which she accepted!!!! She was telling me before she was asked that to get her mom to come, she´d have to give a presentation or something as an excuse and so this´ll be perfect! She got a little nervous, but she´ll do great!!!! :) It was way cool...
Did I ever tell you about O? It was pretty cool. We were trying to find a street one day and asked a girl for directions. She said she was headed there and that we could go with her. On the way, we started talking and she said that before she was eight, her family had gone to our church for awhile and that she had been a part of the primary. she said that we could come back another day - her name is B and is about 24. We went back later, but she was leaving, but O answered the door and we talked to him for a bit. He didn´t show interest, but said that maybe his wife would be interested and he gave us her phone number and left a pamphlet of the restoration with him. but anways a member told us he would go to church the next day and guess what? he went!!! so yeah. His wife is a member - well actually they´re not married (it is pretty common here for people to live YEARS together and never get married legally). They´re working on their papers right now and in about a month, they´ll be able to get married and O and their son M will be able to get baptized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Marriage is a SUPER long process here and SUPER expensive as well. Its about a month´s salary and pretty much no one has that on hand. but O is super dedicated, already has all of his papers in order and everything is going super smoothly. Since we´ve met him, he´s already read into third nephi! he knows the book of Mormon is true and that this is the path that he wants to follow. A true miracle!:)

mannnnn.... things are so crazy here! but its a good kind of crazy. That is SO cool that Michelle got her visa and is on her way to Brasil!!! That is super legit!!! She is going to LOVE it here.
Welllll.... Things are good, but different. I like doing divisions with the other sisters but it is also weird being away from my area and the work here. At least my companions are able to keep up the work with our investigators, but even still its kind of strange for me. Today I´ll be going to do a division.. I´ll stay there tomorrow and get back Wednesday afternoon. It seems like forever for me to be away from my companions and my area - especially since I´m the one training them and I´ll be leaving them to work on their own..... but they are super awesome and work super well!!! :)
We had a zone conference on Tuesday this week. It was super good! ha. And I got a call on Monday night asking me to give a talk in it on the book of mormon. :)
