On Tuesday, we got the news that President wanted us to do a companionship exchange. On Wednesday, my filha went to Potengi (a neighboring area) with Sister Castilho and Sister M. Baker came to my area for the week. Sister Nunes and I were sad to get separated already, but I love Sister M. Baker. I had already spent a week on exchange with her last transfer, so I got excited to be her companion again. Neither of us have had an American companion yet, but we decided that now that we´ve spent so much time on exchanges together, it counts. It´s really fun to have someone to talk about Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, BYU, and other American things with. :) Plus she is amazing and helped out a lot in my area. I was pretty discouraged on Friday since literally all of our plans fell through, but not only did she help me feel better, the Lord also blessed us a lot. After nothing working out all afternoon, we finally found some awesome people to teach and we felt really blessed. The Lord´s tender mercies are amazing. Plus we had some funny experiences and even spent an hour straight quoting Brian Regan and laughing our heads off. :)
On Saturday, Sister Nunes returned, we had a super productive day, and the day ended with Marcílio´s baptism, which was really special. I don´t have the pictures of his baptism with me right now unfortunately, but everything went really well. He was so excited all week for his baptism and is such a good, genuine person. He used to sell drugs and do all kinds of crazy things, but he had left that life behind him a couple of months before we met him and I have no doubt that he was prepared for us by the Lord. He truly wants to live the life God wants for him and to be the best he can.
