I thought I'd posted Kayla's 10/19/15 email, but I logged in today to add her 10/26/15 email and guess what? In the name of positive thinking, you get two for the price of one in this blog entry.

So, I'm going to be 100% honest. This week was really slow and not a whole heck of a lot happened because my companion was pretty sick during the week.
One super exciting thing is we found a super solid investigator who accepted baptism. ELEITO! Super pumped!
Also, one of the members in the ward, when we had lunch at her house, made brownies for me! We had brownie sundaes for dessert and I was stoked! I don't realize how much I miss "American" food until I eat it. Now, I have to find a way to satisfy my craving for Mexican food! Never again will I take advantage of that blessing in my life!
Uhh, that's about it. I read a lot of articles in the Liahona. I love church Magazines! Maybe one day I'll work for them. New life goal? Hmm, we'll see!
Sorry I'm so boring this week! I'll try to be more exciting next week.
Until then, have a great week!
Also from the keeper of this blog, I've included a link below to the church's magazines webpage. The church provides magazines for children, youth, and grown-ups.

The Sky is Falling, But I'm Still Saving Lives
I basically have no time. Surprise there...NOT! But, this week I have some super excting news!
So, this week we have been working really hard with these two investigators we have. We found irmã Margarida last Thursday after planning. She was super receptive and we marked a return appointment for that Saturday. We went, taught the Restoration and they, they being irmã Margarida and her son Marcio, committed to baptism and church. Well, last Sunday we had no investigators at church. Super disappointing.
Well, we didn't give up! We kept going back and after a week of some intense daily contact, they went to church this week and accepted baptism (again) for Saturday! Oh my goodness gracious! We taught them yesterday and the Spirit was incredibly strong! They're way stoked for baptism and I can't wait to see the joy radiating from their faces when they make their first covenant with Heavenly Father!
Guess what! All of this happened while the ceiling in our bathroom is falling. Thus, the sky is falling! I'm okay though and have yet to be hit in the head by falling cement.
Hope you all have a great week! Enjoy this picture of the hole in my ceiling!
