So...... This week was SUPER SLOW except for general conference that flew by. I LOVE GENERAL CONFERENCE. Weird right? That anybody would enjoy sitting on a wooden bench listening to old gentlemen talk for 10 hours? I always get super sad when it ends, I always want more. Seriously, this time, we were able to open the stake secretary's office and watch it in English on the computer!!!! WOOO HOOO!!!!! This was good because my companion still doesn't understand much Portuguese when people talk fast, like translators. There was also a greenie sisiter that was with us, so she needed it too. Funny huh? My first time watching conference in English is my last conference on the mission??? hahaha, anyways.... LOVED Elder Oak's talk, Loved Boyd K Packer's farewell testimony, and of course I love the Bednar and Holland talks, they always put fire in my bones!!!!! I don't think I've ever heard that in English, but we say it a lot in Portuguese..Our baptism this week fell through, unfortunately. We were preparing to give the final check-mate lesson when the other Elderes called needing interviews, so we did a division, and the other elder didn't finish her off. She'll be baptised this week along with this week's baptism. This week's baptism has been investigating the church for 17 years now, and this week, we will finally get her baptised. She's 68. Her son is serving a mission in Brazilia. yeah.
