Happy New Year!
Hello ya'll! And a happy New Year!
This week was slow but progressive and that's all we want! Haha any sort of progress is good! Amaral has been amazing these past two weeks. He's been bringing family to church activites and sends us messages every once in a while asking if we need help teaching or to say that he absolutely loves his new life as a member of the Church. He humbly received the preisthood on Sunday and is preparing to help with the baptism of his cousin, Jenny. It has been so rewarding to see him take this new life in a stride!
New years eve was so much fun! We met witha lot of members and the whole world was going crazy with Quisomba (african music) and banging pots and pans. We actually stayed out untilsince our president didn't request that we return home early so we saw all sorts of crazy things! I think the best part is we were walking home and something smelled kinda funny. Our whole area smells strange but it smelled like food and burning plastic. We rounded a corner and there was this big trash can that was on fire with firefighters trying to put it out. We sat and watched the barbague for a bit before heading home.
Fabiana was finally marked for baptism! Should be towards the end of January! She's progressing so well. When I was 14 I didn't have a clue of what was going on with religion but she's definately a special soul. She loves that activities and other youth in the ward.
Here's a video of what happens on New years eve in Portugal!!
Love all of you!
