Awesome I´m glad Bruno wrote you! He´s really cool and is super anxious to leave for his mission (he has to wait till he´s been a member for a year). He and I and Elder Matos work a lot together during the week. To answer your question, "kkkkkk" is "hahahah" because in Portuguese "k" makes a "ka" sound so it is like the laugh of Popeye. And there is not really anything specific with the thumbs up in pictures - it's just something everyone does because just standing there for a picture is really boring so gotta do something different haha!
I´m loving reading the Book of Mormon with y'all, too! I haven´t read it completely in Portuguese yet, and I´m studying it slowly for my personal study to receive personal revelation and inspiration I need for my Pesquisadors, so it was going that fast, so I can read it with y'all fast and still study for my investigators during personal study. It works out pretty great! What are some thoughts that you all have received while reading?
That's awesome about the baptisms in Murfreesboro. The best thing for those membros novos is to be their friend! The missionaries will love this ward if they integrate the members well. Something that
And that's so true! I saw it with a lot of my recent converts - that when they had these three things they stayed active!
This week we had a challenge in our Zone to see who could have better numbers (no, it's not the numbers, but I cant think of better way to describe it). Each Key-indicator (lessons w/ members, new investigators, etc) had a point value, and it was really great for me and my companion. We are both a little competitive, and we did a lot of great work. I turned a lot of my weaknesses into strengths, and because of our work WE WON! So me and my companion we got BIS (chocolate with some other thing I don't know) and the Zone gave us money for Pizza! (Donnetellos, of course).
We also have a Marriage-tism (baptism with a marriage before) marked in July and another 2 baptisms for next week! I´m super excited because one is a really young family! (I would send a pic, but my comp said this computer already destroyed 2 other USBs so I´ll have to wait till next week) ;/ Sorry!
So this week was GREAT! I´m loving it here in Riviera Paulista!
I love Y'all
