Hey Mommy!!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes and for the packages!! I really appreciate it! :) It is weird to be out here for my worries the sister missionaries in our district called nice and early to sing me happy birthday in a funny mix of english, portuguese, and who knows what else...i was laughing super hard.

This week unfortunately was probably the worst one of my mission...just lots of lessons that fell through and lots of other crazy sad things! Our numbers were super duper low so last night was super depressing when we counted them up. Oh well...always next week! Our investigators all seem to be falling through except Elinor she is still progressing very well. We did have one experience that is super duper cool and is stuck in my head right now. We were knocking doors and we knocked this pretty nice house and we said we are disciples of Jesus Christ and would like to say a prayer to bless you and your family. Well he let us in and was like I would like to offer a prayer right after you guys as well. So we were like awesome, that sounds great. So my comp prayed and then he prayed. After that we left a pamphlet of the restoration and he was like hold on I want to give you guys a book also. He goes back into his house and comes out with 2 books from the seventh day Adventist church...he opened inside the cover and pointed to a guy named "enoch" in English and said that was him. He is the director for the 7th day Adventist church in all of the Portugal area! It was super crazy!! Ellen White....the exmormon wrote and did the art for this book.

We didn´t get a bug bomb but we sprayed other stuff and it seems to be working very well! Transfers are next week so we will see what happens then decide!

I got the package thank you very much!! :) I will try to find something to spend the money on...we are thinking about going golfing today but probably won´t happen cause its far away and expensive. haha sounds like you guys had some good time down there in the sun! :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes!! Love you!!
