Emergency TransferOn Thursday, I got a pretty depressing phone call. I was getting emergency transferred to Mossoró, a city in the interior of Rio Grande do Norte. TWO days before Rita´s baptism. And when I got the phone call, I was in a different area doing an exchange, so I had to go back to my area, pack my bags, say goodbye to Rita and leave for Mossoró the next morning and it was all really crazy.
My new companion is Sister Ariadne Stadler. She has only been on her mission for a month, so I´m going to finish her training. She´s 19 years old, from Curitiba, and was born in the church. And she is amazing. I am so excited to be her companion. And I´m super excited to be here in Mossoró. It´s everyone´s favorite place in the mission, despite being the hottest. It´s going to be an adventure for sure.
Rita and Julia got baptized yesterday, and I wish I could have been there, but I am so happy. Before I left, Rita gave me a framed picture of the two of them so that I wouldn´t forget them. I miss them so much! I feel so blessed to have met so many incredible people on my mission.
General conference was amazing. It´s hard to believe that by the time the next conference rolls around, I won´t be a missionary anymore. I was grateful for the inspired messages that were given.
All my love from Mossoró,
Us at a member´s house. It´s an American (Brad) who came back to Brazil to open an english school and got married and stayed here and is now a member of our ward. They made us cinnamon rolls!
Saying goodbye to Rita :(
On my way to Mossoró!
Reunited with Sister Thomson and Sister G. Nunes in Mossoró!
