Yay for sleep!

I really can´t believe that I am about to hit my half way mark. It is sooo crazy to think that I have been out for 9 months. Wow. I know it´s probably going a little slow for you guys (I don´t know maybe it´s going fast too), but dang, my time in the mission is just flying by for me. I can´t believe that May is almost over.CRAZY!!! 
I don´t know if I am happy that I am half way done or sad. I am happy because I am that much closer to seeing you all again, but I am sad because I feel like there is so much more I need to learn and there is not enough time. IT´s a weird feeling.
Anyways, this week we worked like crazy. Our beginner´s luck is still going strong because we have sooo much stuff to do here. My numbers have never been this great in the mission. Poços de Caldas really like Zion. I DO NOT want to leave here.  
My favorite experience this week happened Sunday. First off, I was in a great mood because we had 2 investigators come to church. The first was this boy named Gilherme we found knocking doors. He´s 14 and a really great kid. I asked him what his favorite music was and he said "Gospel". Yeah, I am pretty dang excited to teach him. The other was a kid named Gabriel. All the members of his family are members, but for some reason he didn´t want to get baptized. Now, he´s thinking about baptism and we are helping him with his doubts and stuff. Baptism is definitely in his future:)
Anyways, my experience. After church we had one of the young women call us up and asked to go out with us. I was all for it so we met up and got to work. Turns out that she had a referral for us and wanted to go visit her. IT was a great lesson!!! We taught the restauração and gave the lady, Selma, a book of Mormon. She said that she already knows that it´s true, but she´s going to pray just to make sure. I am excited to see where this goes. I loved teaching with Julia (the YW). She has such a strong testimony and a strong desire to share the gospel. I was just in awe of her. She´s only 16, but already she is an amazing missionary. Really, missionary work is for everyone:) It was so great!!!!
Well, I hope that everyone has a great week. We´re going straight home after emailing to sleep. After 9 months, I am used to being dead tired, but it´s always a huge blessing when we have time to take a nap. Yay for Sleep!!! 
Love you all!
