So transfers happened and life is still great! I'm still in Sao Mateus and my new comp is Sister Rodriguez!!! Sister Rodriguez is the cutest thing on the planet and I love her and she's from Argentina and she's super spunky and wonderful :)) And she speaks Portuguese really really well and my Portuguese has already improved so much with just one week with her. She's the best!
This week was kinda slow but we've got a lot of good things happening. It was a great start to the transfer. I'm pretty pumped. We only had one person at church yesterday, but Sis R and I met a wonderful family in Carapina this week! They almost came to church...Ana Rosa is the mom and she has 4 kids (Fernando, Daniel, Hanna, e Davi). It was kind of sad because we invited her to come to a Relief Society activity but it got cancelled because of a minor rat problem in the church...They had to clean the church so the activity got moved to next Saturday :((( We had planned to pick her up and walk with her to the church so when we found out that the activity was cancelled, we tried to walk over a little earlier to let her know since she wasn't answering her phone, but when we showed up, she was already dressed and ready to go and she seemed really sad when we let her know. She was even gonna bring her daughter and her daughter had a cute little dress on and ugh it was the worst. They said they would still go to church the next day, but one of the kids got sick so yeah...Bummer :(
Julio Cesar isn't really progressing :( We've been visiting him a lot but his family doesn't want him to talk to us or come to church so it's just not really working out...We have another pesquisador named Moises but he has some form of depression and he like never leaves his house and he didn't come to church even though he promised to come and we walked all the way to his house Sunday morning to pick him up :( It was sad because we had marked a baptismal date for him so obviously it fell through :(
But everything is great and I haven't gotten us too lost in our area haha I seriously love being here still and it feels like a fresh start with Sister Rodriguez. Our area has a lot of potential and we're ready to find all of the elect people here!
Eu amo vocês!
Com amor,Sister Alia Yun Earls
