This has been a crazy week! Holy Cow!!! So, last p-day we left to spend the night in another city so we could arrive in Piracicaba earlier. We almost missed our bus, but luckily we made it in the nick of time. Unfortunately the Elders did miss the bus and had to pay a member to take them to São João. I didn´t feel sorry for them because they are late to everything. I think it was a good life lesson. Anyways, we spent the night at the São João sister’s house. It was pretty dang fun, like a sleep over, or girls camp. I slept on the ground on an old mattress. It was the best!!! But seriously, I really do love roughing it in Brasil. I feel like a real missionary or a pioneer. Priceless memories.
The next day we got up super early to catch two omibus to Piracicaba. It took forever, but I mostly slept the whole way.
When we finally got to Piracicaba I was so so so happy! I got to see all my peeps from the MTC and the majority of my brasilian friends. Also, Eliana (My brasilian mom) showed up at transfers!!! It was so good to see her again and huge the tar out of her. She also gave me a sweet brasil tee shirt. Yep, I love her.
At 2:30 we went to pick up our Filhas (Me and all the other trainers). Training actually doesn´t make me super nervous. I get to stay in my same area with the same people that I love. So, I feel like I can take on the world. Anyways, as trainers, we had a little bit of training before and got to meet our new companions. I love my new Comp!!! Her name is Sister Gomez and she´s from João Pessoa (a state in the north). She is hilarious and a little bit dingy, but I love her. So far training her has been pretty easy. I feel like it´s going to be an awesome transfer.
Also, Sister Sargent and the missionary she is training, Sister Menezes, are living with us and working in our same area. I am completely happy with this. Sister Sargent is the absolute best and I love her so much. It has been so much fun working and living together.
Returning to Poços de Caldas took forever and 4 busses, but we made it safely home on Wednesday (we spent the night in another sister´s house on Tuesday). Now, we are working hard and having a great time doing it! I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope that you all have a fantastic week and your hopes and dreams come true!
This is at a really cheap place to eat. It´s like 2.50 a meal in dollars. I love it. We go there every pday.
My last day with sister Oliveira:( I was really sad to say goodbye to her :( But I love my new comp too!
