Thanks for all your letters!
What´s new this week?
Well, we visited this little old lady this week! She´s been a member for over 30 years! She was also baptized by Elder Moreira of the Quorum of the 70! She is SO COOL. And it´s so funny because she´s so old (well, 79) that she is so honest about everything, I love it! She also reminds me of my grandma ( I love you, Abuelita!) because she´s so independent and loves to do everything herself. But unfortunately, her health doesn´t permit her, so she´s been kind of sad lately.
This weekend was General Conference! It was so good! For all of you who don´t know what that is, every six months, we get to hear from our Prohpet, Thomas S. Monson, and from the 12 apostles and other general authorites of the Church. It was so amazing. Of course, it´s always amazing, but this time i´m only assuming it´s amazing because I actually couldn´t understand most of it (there´s just something about the dubbing that is just really hard to process in my brain).
Also, I´ve been speaking nothing but Portuguese since I got my new companion, Sister Da Luz. She´s from Cape Verde (off the coast of Africa). I´m definitely learning a lot!!!
It´s been 2 years since the age change was announced! I was rereading the introduction to General Conference two years ago when they announced that Sister Missionaries were allowed to serve at age 19, and I felt the spirit testify to me SO strongly that I was doing the right thing. These past few weeks have been hard, but that was a needed reminder of how much Heavenly father loves me to have reminded me. I know this Gospel is true! I KNOW that God has restored the whole truth to the earth once more. I know that we have a living prophet today on the earth and I know this gospel can bless everyone´s lives!
