This week, no joke, has been NUTS. We had a grand surprise this last transfer and I can~t wait to tell you all about it.
So we had this way cool mission tour this week, where Elder Cruz of the seventy came and talked to us. I had such a good time. Everyone from the mission was there, the spirit was so strong. We all just basked in spiritual awesomeness. We welcomed the newbs- one of them being ELDER OLSEN!! It was freaking awesome sauce. So depois, we had this wonderful event, called TRANSFERENCIAS. For all you people not familiar with the mission life, 1 transfer is 6 weeks. And every 6 weeks, we can be moved to a different area in the mission. Last week, we got a call from the zone leaders saying that the only person in our district who got transferred was Sister Calixto, which was sad because I love the guts out of Sister Calixto, but life moves on.
So we~re sitting there in Transfer meeting, and everyones getting called to their designated areas. And all of a sudden, my picture pops up on the wall. I thought. Que estranho porque eu e sister melo nos estamos ficando juntos em Balneario. Our Assistant was like..... Sister Marshall will continue in Balneario and her new companion is SISTER AMARANTE!!!!!! We had NO IDEA that Sister Melo was getting transferred. I looked at everyone during this whole meeting... Sister Melo, Elder Ruiz, everyone, and everyone was like..... I have no idea what is happening right now... Afterwards, Sister Melo was like.... NO ONE TOLD ME I WAS GETTING TRANSFERRED. and the assistants were like.... SURPRISE!!!!!!!
Mas, I~ll tell you a little bit about Sister Amarante. She is super cool. It~s her last transfer on the mission, so I~ll be the missionary sending her home!! AHHH!!!! She~s from Minas. She told me where in Minas but I dont remember the name, I think it~s called Juiz do Fora. Or something. Its super close to Rio de Janeiro. But I love her. I like the way she teaches a lot. She has really good goals, and we are planning on working our tails off this transfer. She is legit.
In other news, Elder Olsen is in my Zone!! Que chique neh? Zona Goiania Norte is the best zone in the mission...in my opinion... but then again, i don~t know... because its been my only zone. But seriously, I love love love love love Goiania. I think like sister Twitchell, I~ll be here for a while.
Lets see, what else what else what else....
I remember that I wanted to tell you guys something, more like...ask for something... but i seriously have no idea what it was. So I guess it wasn~t that important. Oh, and apparently there are a lot of brazilians in Orlando. My companion has a friend serving in Orlando portugues speaking.
Well,that just about sums up my week for you guys.
