I hope you all had a wonderful week! Happy Mothers Day to everyone! I was able to talk to my family via Skype yesterday, it was awesome! It made all of us missionaries a little homesick for a bit but all is well now! haha.
So the first week here in Várzea Grande was awesome, we taught some awesome people. It was a fun week. It is suuuuuper hot here compared to Ponta Porã, I feel like I'm being cooked alive here! haha. But we had a baptism on Saturday, it was so great! Her name is Gabrielle, she is 14. She was confirmed yesterday in Sacrament meeting. Also, she told us that she wants to serve a mission when she is 19, it made me and Elder Baughan super happy. It is amazing to see someone with that much faith and love for the gospel, and to see the difference it can make in their lives and the lives of their families.
On Thursday we had Mission Leadership Council, so all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders here in the North part of the mission got together with President Reber to talk about the work and resolve issues of the mission. We got a lot accomplished and made some changes, so I am confident that the work will continue to progress.
So pretty much the house we live in is a BLAST! haha we all get along great it is so fun. I have laughed so hard the past few days! Today we are planning on playing basketball at the church, I'm stoked! It has been like 6 months since Ive played. Should be good :)
Also, the World Cup is coming up here in a few weeks, and there are going to be 4 matches here in Cuiabá! Plus, the Stadium is in mine and Elder Baughans area! it is going to be super crazy. I think we are going to have to stay indoors during the matches, because people get crazy for soccer. No joke.
But we haven't had any problems with rats in this house, just big bugs! haha. Also we have an air conditioner in our bedroom, so it is super awesome.
This week we will be doing divisions with other Elders in our zone, so I will get to travel a bit this week. But anyways, all is well in Brazil, things are going great I love it here. I hope you have a wonderful week, love and miss you all!
