Oí, tudo bem!!
This week we did a lot in our classes and learned a TON, but there wasn´t too many exciting events this week. :( BUT, we did get asked to sing last Devotional! Sister Dunn, Sister DiSpirito, and I sang "Noite Feliz" in front of the entire CTM and leaders! It was so fun and the spirit was there and everyone loved it! It was so nice to be in my element again and be singing! It felt so good haha.
Can you believe it´s our 5th week here and we are almost about to start our 6th week!?!? That´s beyond crazy. Being in the field is a scary thought, but I am so excited for it as well!
This week we also started Christmas time in the CTM! We sing Christmas hymns at the devotionals, in class, and last Friday night the CTM turned on the Christmas lights!! We had a special devotional with the CTM President and his wife about the true meaning of Christmas and we all sang Christmas carols! Then, we all went outside to the courtyard and they turned on SO MANY LIGHTS! We all counted down from 10 (in Portuguese of course) and it was so magical! The employees here even decorated the kitchen area and we ate popsicles and ice cream and took lots of pictures! Favorite night here so far. The CTM is great, the mission is great, and my district is great! Wouldn´t want to be anywhere else.:) HE is the gift!
