Staying in Altos!!!

hey yall! What a great last week of the transfer! We married Antonio and Railma on wednesday. Everything went perfectly. On thursday we had a zone conference with the two zones in teresina. It was quite inspiring! President taught a lot about doing practice in the morning and how our lessons need to be conversations where we ask questions and what not. I feel like i´ve been doing well with elder machado on this part. We dominated our practice in front of everyone with sister siedschlag! There´s a lot of elders who, sadly, dont know how to converse with people. We learned a lot about being obedience as well. That we should worry about our personal salvation as much as we do with our investigators. Me and elder taught some less actives this week, so when we got to one house there was a half retarded girl thats 15 that lived there. She totally fell in love with me! Telling me that i was beautiful! and that my comp is ugly! hahahah! She gave me a big ol hug when we left! hahah cutest lil thing. Friday was Railma´s baptism...awesome! i got to baptize her. Saturday night, i called the secretary, Elder Bitnoff. And being that i´m buddy buddy with him, i asked about transfers! TRANSFER ALERT: I´m staying! and elder machado´s going! hahaha! Nobody expected it! He´s off to São Bernardo, Maranhão. And i´ll be here for one more transfer with Elder Patey! YES, first time i´ll have an AMERICAN companion! What?!?! He´s been out for about 11 months i´ve heard, but is in brasil only 3 transfers so far. This will be interesting! Yesterday we went out to teach with Bishop.....and out of nowhere came a DOWNPOUR! we took our shoes off to walk in the road because it was totally flooded! We´re teaching a professor where bishop works named Neide. She´s very intelligent and has come to church 3 sundays already! Joao filho and his family came again as well! Theyre progressing like crazy! 2 recent converts of mine from teresina came to visit yesterday as well! it was way cool seeing them and how they´ve changed! One was baptized a week after i left! Loving the mission! Love you guys!
