Alberto and I saying goodbye.
And Goodbye Sommerschield! :(
It is that time again, transfers are happening! I will be leaving my area and going to a new area called T-3 in the Matola Zone. I'm excited but nervous because I will be opening up an new area, it's another "white-wash." But I will have another Brazilian as a companion this transfer, Elder Silva. I will not be leaving Sommerschield until Friday which truly is a blessing because I will have a chance to say goodbye to the people I have been teaching. I am excited for what lies ahead in this new area.
Thanksgiving day was stellar. So much food! And pasturized milk! It was soooo good! They were such a blessing for us and were so nice to have us for dinner. I thought very much about home but I felt more at home because of the kindness of this family. There was a baptism on Saturday at Chamanculo. It was way nice, I could feel the blessings those people were receiving.
Sunday we had a Primary Program in our ward, the attendance was through the roof. It was awesome. I will share a photo of primary children. Also Elder Stewart left to go home on Sunday. It was very weird seeing a missionary go home.
Since I am leaving here I will share some pictures of my house and the church building in Sommerschield. I want to also share some photos of some people that I have been teaching who are investigating the church and I'm certain will be baptized next transfer. I know it!
Also we played soccer today! With Irmao Carlos, some Rapazes, the sons of Irmao Jorge, and some other randoms. Haha! It was awesome. And boy was it hot! I think I'll be a decent soccer player when I come back. haha.
It's very hard to describe the love I feel for these people. I almost cried saying goodbye to some special ones. I know I am supposed to be here. And I know I cannot stay. No matter how much I want too. It's truly a blessing to have been able to find these wonderful people and to bring them to our Savior. I pray everyday for them and for you all. I do this because I know it helps.
I have loved my time here with my companion and these wonderful members and friends. I feel so blessed.
I know this Gospel is true. I know it changes lives. It has changed mine. And I will forever be changed. I hope everyone of you can know of the everlasting happiness I feel right now. I hope you had a great week and I hope you will have another one! I love you all!
P.S. Sorry for the photo overload!
