Happy Leap Year!


My mission is a little bit longer because it´s a leap year! ;) So we made it through the 2 hottest months in Brasil- January and February! It´s still going to be hot, but hopefully it will lighten up a bit! 

This week was great, but I don´t have a ton of time to write! We went to Kerollyn´s baptism! She is a YW that the other sisters we live with taught! She´s awesome!! And tonight we´re going to have a baptism! His name is George and he´s 19 years old with a  2 year old daughter.  He works hard and really wants to be sealed in the temple to his wife who passed away a year ago.  He has such strong faith in The Lord and truly has been prepared for this day! We are so excited for him. SO EXCITED that even though my companion sprained her ankle and has either Dengue or Chicogonia we are going to make this long awaited baptism happen! She is so determined! 

Yesterday we had stake conference and our mission president and his wife spoke which was so cool! We also brought 4 investigators and 3 less actives- it was so cool! The spirit was super strong there! 

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,
Sister Garrick
