BUGS IN HER SUITCASE
Bom Diaaaaa!!!!!!!!! Todo Bem gente???
How are you all doing?? I have been doing great!! This week was crazy!
We have been really trying to just find new people to teach, we dont have very good people to teach right now. But we will get them!!!
We have started to work in new areas of my area so that has been fun.
Sooooo friday It was really cold. I wanted to wear some of my warmer clothes that were in my suitcase because I dont use them much. So I got out my suitcase and opened it and there were THOUSANDS of bugs in it. And then hundreds and hundreds of white tiny eggs. I dont know how it happened but we spent the next two hours trying to clean my bags. I lost some of my stuff that I had kept in my suitcase. But right when it was finally clean we go to unzip the liner and the plastic shell has hundreds more eggs laid underneath it. there was literally no way to clean it. we had to throw away my luggage. Just one of the luxuries of Brazil!!! It was definable an interesting and unexpected day. And to top it off later that friday (it was raining a ton) and I slipped and hurt my knee and broke my umbrella! haha My companion says that fridays are my unlucky days because bad things always happen to me haha
But I have learned a lot this week! Its weird because on a mission you dont realize the way that you change. Day to day you dont notice a diffrence. But when I look at who I am now and who I was 5 months ago I barely even recognize myself! Its an amazing thing. Missions are really life changing and I am happy I still have one year to go!
I also am loving my personal study. I am starting to understand the BOM in Portuguese!! Thats way cool. Eventually I will stop studying English all together.
READ THE SCRIPTURES!!!! You will receive so many blessings!
