I'm alive! I dont have much time.. sorry! I will try to hurry and type. I'm serving in an area called Iguatu. It's around 7 hours away from Fortaleza! My companion is Sister Angulo, who is AMAZING! She's from Mexico and has been on her mission for about a year. We get along very well!
|This is where I live|
The church in Iguatu is just starting. We are a group. Not a branch, a GROUP! The missionaries do everything here. There's 8 of us here in this area and it's really fun! Brasil is HOT!!!! I sweat so much every day. My feet are destroyed because the streets here are not very good and I have 23 mesquito bites. I dont understand like anything because people speak only slang, but I LOVE IT HERE!!!!!!! The people here are amazing! It's incredible! Everyone here calls me blondie or white girl or that I need to wear sun screen. hahaha.
|Thank you for the birthday gifts!|
This past week though has been amazing. On Sunday we had a baptism! It was cool because I got to invite her to be baptized my first day here and she accepted! Her name is Jamilli and she is 11 years old. We don't have a building here with a baptismal font, so she was baptized in the RIO river. The work here in Iguatu is booming! We teach around 20 lessons a day and we are on the go all the time!. It is crazy!
Thank you all for your birthday letters. I LOVED THEM ALL! My companion is taking care of me today and making me burritos! Woo! Sorry that I dont have time to write each one of you back, but I love you all! Have a wonderful week!
Love, Sister Unbedacht
