So this week was way awesome!!!

Hiiiiii :D

It started out with a lady in the ward calling us her angels :D That was definitely a great start to the week. 

Elder Richards family sent Peeps and he shared them with us :D
In this ward they have this activity every week "Noite de Amizade". Which is translated friendship night, but everyone in the ward is invited and we have a lesson or read scriptures and we all eat and talk and bring friends, it's just wonderful pretty much. Well this week it was at Tatiana and Amilton´s (Amilton was baptized a couple weeks ago) house and there were sooo many people there!! So we were planning the program beforehand and it was hilarious!! 

Elder Schwenger went up there to conduct and was announcing everything when he said, shoot, I knew I was forgetting was the message!!! Ha, it was funny. So he asked bishop to give the message and Elder Schwenger gave a little thought before hand. It was great!!!! 

This same night I lost our phone...but then we found out it had fallen out of my purse in the car of a lady in the ward who had driven us home. So it´s all good haha. But since we had lost our phone we had no way of calling for lunch the next day and the Elders didn´t know we had lost our phone. Soooo, we decided to run to their house the next morning. It was a good run and they were really surprised when we "knocked" on their door haha. 

The puppy that I almost killed...
We started teaching some AMAZING people this week!!! This lady Regina is really excited about the church but she wasn´t able to go to church on Sunday so she is going to go next week! But Virginia and her husband (I forget his name oops) loved the Book of Mormon, loved church and just love everything!!! She said this is the answer she has been waiting for! She is just so adorable! She came to church with a modest dress on! And yeah just perfect :D I love it! 

So this week I was also feeding a puppy milk out of a bottle but then it was drinking too fast and the milk starting coming out of its nose!!! Which could kill him cause he can´t breathe so Irmã Sabrina picked him up and did a chucking motion so the milk would come out of him. It seems like it had already happened before. But he was such a cute little puppy!!!!! But I´m just glad i didn´t kill it!!!!!!

So there´s this tradition in Brazil that for Easter everyone buys these huge chocolate eggs that have stuff in the inside. So Tatiana and Amilton gave us one!!!! Ohhhh we were so excited we took so many pictures!! Don´t mind my crazy hair haha 

Alsoooo it has been raining like all this week so it was cooler and it was wonderful, rain is like blessing literally pouring down on us :D

There was this beautiful rainbow out our window this morning!!!!!
Something very interesting that a speaker said in church yesterday is that our life is like a video game. We go through these hard trials, there levels of life and then we overcome it. We win the level. But then the next level is harder. I feel like in life sometimes we want it to just get easier. But that´s not how it works. Sometimes it feels easier, but that´s because we are stronger. The Lord doesn´t lighten our load, he strengthens us so it feels lighter. So as we go through life there are going to be hard trials, and it may get harder and it may seem like we can´t make it through, but we can!! We have our Lord who will always help us. We have our family, our ward family. There are so many people who want to help us we just have to look around. 

Well I hope you all have an amazing week!!!

Love ya!
