dont worry, be happy

This week was gooooooooood!

Sister Guimarães and I have been able to find some really great new investigators and less active families. It's been a little hard here in Pombal because people just aren't progressing...But!! Just keep pressing on!! Where I am right now, Pombal, the church has only been here in for 5 years and so being a small branch it has some really persistent members:) And sometimes in a small branch you end up teaching Sunday School for the youth, leading the hymns during Sacrament meeting and giving a talk all in one day hahaha. It was fun:)

I love this gospel. Missionary work is really the happiest thing on earth and I like how James E Talmage says it, "Supreme happiness is not an earthly attainment." 

Read your scriptures and also Jesus the Christ;)
Invite a friend to church too!

Hi. Okay.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

These last couple weeks have been pretty good. Sister Muria was transferred to Mossoró to the ward where I started my mission:) And so now i'm with Sister Guimarães!

Emails are hard. but next week I'll give you the lowdown on everything.

Just keep reading your scriptures.

it only gets better from here

Oi Gente!!

This week was really good. I reached 9 months! Halfway done ahhhhhhh!! But really, this week we had the baptism of Raiana who's a friend of some young women (recent converts too) in our branch. She was super excited. It was cute this week too because Raiana, and all of this little band of friends heard in sacrament meeting that there would be ice cream after cleaning the chapel Saturday. I didn't say anything, Sister Muria didn't say anything, but they were all there ready to help clean bright an early haha! They all came to her baptism too!

Also, this week we had another family home evening with the branch and it was a super success. We brought investigators and even some members that have been less active for a long time. Old friends reunited and new friendships made:) It was great. 

Have a great week and read Jesus the Christ because it's perfect.

Love you,
sister pace

And a shout out to all my Young Women leaders that will always be huge examples to me.<3
