MIRACLES!!Jorge´s baptism!!!

Jorge´s baptism!!! All the missionaries came to support him!! yayy
This week was full of miracles!!!!!
So ´ll start off on the sad note. A sister that we were teaching who was amazing and ready to be baptized got called to go back to work on the boat early. So instead of going to church she had to go to São Paulo for an interview and yesterday she flew to France to get on the boat for 7 months. She was amazing and wanted to get baptized, but Satan works really hard sometimes, and she ended up going :/
Jorge´s baptism!!!
BUT let´s not get down, because there are ALWAYS miracles after the test of your faith!!! So we have been teaching this guy Jorge who lived in the 3rd ward but then broke up with his girl friend, moved out and is now living in our ward. So, we started teaching him with the Elders, but he wanted to know everything before he got baptized. But, on Wednesday at English class he said he wanted to get baptized on Sunday, we started talking to him about baptism and then he changed his mind. We told him to pray about it and call us FridayFriday morning he called saying he wanted to get baptized! We called our district leaders and they came running to do the interview at 3:30. It was amazing!!! He was baptized on Sunday and it was literally a miracle. He bore his testimony afterwards and it was stellar!! He has already moved so much and I am excited to keep helping him grow in the gospel!
We also found a new guy Rafael!! He is awesome! We have only taught him one time, yesterday, but he is already excited to find the true church. He doesn´t really like the idea of church because he thinks it´s all a business now, but we explained to him and he liked it!! I´m excited to keep working with him!!
We had a beauty salon day
with all the ladies in the stake and
we invited Sandra (invesitgator from the 3rd ward)
and she came and trimmed my hair!!!!
Marcos and Patrícia are awesome! They are doing great as usual and they all came to church on Sunday in Sunday best!!!!
Paulo and Thays, they don´t live in our area, or our stake, but we may just start teaching them because they are always at FHE with a couple in our ward! They are going to get married in the next couple of months!! yayayay so that is going to be amazing!! 

We got the transfer news and Sis Ermácora and I are STAYING!! We didn´t believe it at first!!!! We called Marcos and Patrícia and she screamed when she heard the news!! She told us we have to stay here for the rest of our missions, haha!! This is the longest I have stayed with one companion and I´m excited to keep doing the work we have started!!!
I´m so excited to keep working here!!!!
Love ya!
Sister Peterson
