So to my surprise I was transferred back to Santa Maria- where I started my mission! I was super happy with the progress we were seeing in São Gabriel and I was content and hoping to stay more time there, but when the Lord calls, you go! But I am happy with the seeds I left planted, and my old comp Elder Lopes will take good care of everyone:)
On the bright side of things I got transferred to the ward Santa Marta, the most famous area in the mission:) Things here are so nice! The Sunday attendance here is through the roof! Also our teaching group is literally all references from members and families of recent converts. My new companion is Elder Luz, from São Paulo. I already knew him from early on the mission so I´m pumped to work with him!

3. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YÀLL:) When you´re new on the mission they joke that you won´t go home this year, and not even the next year, just in the next! So I`m happy that its 2018- my year! I´m ready to give it my all these last 23 weeks.
