“Don’t count your days—make your days count.”

~August 24~

   Hi mommy!!!!! so this week... was a bit hard... we have found alot of people to teach... but when it comes to going back and teaching them... they are either not home... or just not interested... :( oh well... were still working really hard! so we had kindof a crazy experience... so there a recent convert here and weve been teaching his granddaughter... and one day we stopped by and we were talking there... and he was like telling us that he was leaving the church that he didnt want to be part of it... cause he had to save his marriage.. and then his wife comes out (and shes kindof a scary person)and she starts yelling at him... and telling us that he is a horrible husband.. it was honestly really scary... but thank goodness that my companion and i felt like we should take someone with us to teach that lesson.. we asked a member to go with us... her name is Rosangela! she is amazing! she such a sweet person! so she went with us... and she was amazing! she was the one doing all the talking and helping the situation get better! my companion and i didnt know what to say or do... but rosangela like saved the night... and then after the lesson her and her husband took us out to eat pizza! it was funny cause our lunch appointment couldnt give us lunch that day... and we didnt have any food at home.. and we were starving.. and we had prayed that we wouldnt feel hungry... and then they took us out to dinner! it was an awesome day! sortof... were still working with João to go back to church. Oh and on saturday ... we woke up and our whole house was flooded... It sucked! We dont know how it flooded ... but it did! oh well! haha did you guys see the pictures I sent ? oh President and sister bigelow have a facebook page you can follow ... I dont know the name of it ... but you can look! haha well I love you guys so much! say hi to everyone for me! Everyone!!!! haha
