Oi família!! Quanto tempo!! I was transfered to.. drumroll...... COLINAS DO SUL STILL! I´m still here, but with a new companion, the new Sister Líder Treinadora here, Sister Johnson (another Sister Johnson). So I´ll still go to the Leadership meetings every month and I´ll get to see Sister Sciammarella. That´s what I mean when I say I´m basically a zone leader haha.. I participate in the planning our zone meetings. A ton of people in my group and older have still never trained or even been senior, and it´s just the timing. I came with a giant group and since then, like 6 sisters have come. So it´s just a mindset I need to get over.
The Lord knows what He´s doing and I know I´m gonna love Sister Johnson. She´s also from Sister Seal and Sciammarella´s group who leaves in September. I really just met her but I´ve heard good things about her. I feel like we all have callings and responsibilities given to us that aren´t included in a title. For example, I´m now responsible for showing her this area and helping her with her calling since I already have done divisions and know the Sisters here. It was a sad goodbye and this area is a beast, so yeah, it was hard. But I know it´s going to be okay. I love your emails and it was so good to talk to you all on Sunday. It´s funny how well the Lord knows us. I can feel that He´s right here at my side, that He knows I can do anything I´m called to do. Just do it and do it with a smile! Mom, I wanted the chance to thank you a little more on Mother´s day for being my mom. The mission is just teaching me all the things you always taught me, but you didn´t need a mission to figure it out. You are the kind of super hero the world needs a lot of right now, just good moms who raise their kids the right way, by example. I love you so much and everything you´ve taught me I use every day on the mission. I will for sure write you a letter but I have to give it to an Elder to mail so who knows when it´ll get sent. But it was such a comfort to see you guys. It didn´t make me trunky, just grateful to remember that I´m just a kid with parents who just hope I´m alright. I´m trying to just do the best I can as a missionary and I know you guys are happy with me and so is the Lord. I´m not really sure what else to write about in this letter, the news of transfers kind of whitewash your memory of the last week. But we are still working with José, Luzia´s son. That whole family needs the gospel so bad, and they need to be in it together. Please pray for José to be baptized Sunday and for Antonio, the dad. Just the whole Família Ferreira da Silva. But if you pray for that name, you´ll be blessing 70% of Brasil ;) Pray for this ward, and also for the other Antonio who we baptized. His health is very very bad, so just pray for Antonio and Joselia. But everything´s all good. I know the Savior lives and loves me. I´m grateful for the chance to serve Him, because that is the only way to understand who He is. Wonderful things await those who have faith. I feel we didn´t work as well as we should´ve the last couple of days, but it´s a new start with a new companion and miracles are going to happen here! We´ve got some good people we´re teaching and the Lord is on our side. I love you all so much and hope you have an awesome week! Até o proximo! Beijinhos, Sister Moore
