I got Accepted into BYU-Hawaii!!!!!!! Milagres são reais!!!
Also, I was TRANSFERRED!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Sister Marshall is officially out of Goiania and into the Interior of Goias! I~m serving in a small city called Rio Verde. My area is Morada do Sol. It was a 4 hour bus ride, which was actually pretty relaxing. My new companion is Sister Hitchcock! She~s super cool, she was a visa waiter in Oregon and served in Medford for a time! What? And shes been in brazil for about a month now! But she~s already speaking Portugues like a champion!!!
This week has been crazy. So my area is relatively clean. There are some parts that are pretty rich. It almost looks like American Neighborhoods. There are other parts that are really poor. We~ve been teaching a really cool couple. The wife is sisters of a member and the husband aparently was really resistant at first, but he~s been having a lot of desires to go to church, and he went to all 5 sessions of general conference, and loved every part of it! so thats cool.
We have a lot of people to contact here.So thats been fun. We~re contacting a lot of people right now, and there is a lot of work for us to do here. It~s wierd being so far away from the mission office, if we were ever missing something, we could just go to the office and pick it up. Here, we have nothing. We have pamphlets, we don~t have a cell phone, or dvd player. and so we~ll have to wait a few weeks to get those. honestly, its possible that this transfer, we won~t have them. Missionary work without a cell phone is pretty strange.
Conference was perfect. Seriously, perfect. Every talk was exactly and utterly perfect. I really enjoyed the Saturday Sessions and then I was expecting something nuts to happen... like... i don~t even know because every talk was about honoring the prophet. And about priorities, I liked that as well. There were a lot of repeated themes, a lot of repeated topics. The tree of life. It was all super uplifting, and I left conference wanting to repent of a lot of things haha. It was all very direct, and I loved Elder Bednars final talk about missionary work. I~ll probably download it right now and show it to everyone.
I don~t have a loto f time, but i~ll go ahead and send the few photos i took this week.
love you all!
