Hey everyone!

This week was probably one of the busiest weeks of my mission. We found a lot of really cool people after a big leap of faith when we decided to stop teaching a lot of our eternigators (investigators that love being taught but never do anything). We found a Brazilian family who had had the lessons like 30 years ago until the missionaries in that area disappeared with a whitewash or something. We taught them and left them a Book of Mormon and the 17 year old son read half of it before we came back a few days later. They invited us over for dinner and we loved talking to them! We focused on the message that the gospel of Jesus Christ blesses families. When we taught Maria, the mom, that she could be with her family forever she just started bawling. It was so special! We also met three young siblings who are friends of one of my favorite members here. They are 18, 16, and 13 years old. We taught them the about the restoration of the gospel and they accepted our invitations to  attend church with the other youth. 

Here's a picture of Andre (Who is going to leave on his mission soon), me, Diogo, Beatriz, Roseana, Sister Aiono, and Sonia. They are a really cool group of jovens!

We also got news of transfers! I'm going to stay here in Portimão and serve with Sister Foster!! Whoo-hoo!! I know Sister Foster really well! She lived with me in Barreiro for 12 weeks! It's going to be such a great transfer! We're really excited to start working.

Tania! We love her so much!

Part of the culture in Portugal is that you sit and wait while people make food for you. It's always super awkward. But hey... we do anything for food... XD

One of our friends has a cat with a mustache. He's so cuddly!

We had a great week! Love you guys!
