I~ll be honest. I~m not happy that dry season is coming. I~m pretty sure that I~ll die. Goiania is as dry as it gets, and so I~m looking forward to bloody noses, and dirt in my eyes! WOOOOO!!!!!
This week was definitely a week. I don~t know what happened this week, but I think I just got really flusterred with the language or something. I dont really know. I felt like... oh my goodness, i~ve been a missionary for almost a year, and I can~t even speak my mission tongue. It~s an awful feeling. But I prayed a lot this week, fasted, and waiting for miracles.
I do have a funny story.
I went to the Broadcast yesterday for the Women, and the sisters in Ipiranga have an investigator from ...i don~t remember but she speaks english and doesnt speak portuguese. It was so funny because the sisters were so excited to introduce her to me and I was so excited to talk to her in english. I meet her, and I couldn~t speak anything. I would say things really weird, and i would switch back into portugues on accident when i was talking to her. At the end of the broadcast, she asked me where i was from and I told her Florida. And she was like... FLORIDA! REALLY? I thought you were brazilian! Your english is terrible! After a couple of minutes I was able to converse with her normally, but it was like the weirdest thing. I was standing there trying to talk to her, but I couldn~t remember which words were in english and which words were in portuguese.
We had 3 baptisms this week! Vilma, Leticia and Geovana! It was the best. I~m so happy for them. We were going to have one baptism, this kid Francisco. BUT this is what happened. His parents called him last minute and told him he couldn~t get baptized. booo!!! it was so sad.
I don~t have much else to say.
Love Sister Marshall
