Missionary Split

Hey Everyone!!!

Hope this week is finding you well, and that you share your love with everyone this Valentines Day by sharing the gospel with others. This week was good. Splits were AWESOME!!!!!!! I was with Sister Santana in Caça Pava, and part of her area has Campos do Jordão, PRETTIEST place EVER!!!! Everyone look it up on Google and Google maps. I want to live there!!!!  We went with a member on Wednesday to visit some less active families and some investigators. Campos do Jordão is UP UP UP in the mountains, so the members and investigators usually only go to church once a month when they have a caravan go up and pick them up. I met some really really awesome people. One man, Derrly, we visited lives in a house that he built in the middle of the forest, WAY COOL and he accepted baptism for this Sunday coming up when the caravan comes! I felt the spirit really strong when Sister Santana was inviting him for baptism. It was a really awesome experience WOOHOO. I also met another women, Rachel Carvaljo, that was baptized in the year 1960, and she serves on the city council of her little town, and she's in a book which she showed me called Mormon Women. I seriously want to be like her when I grow up. She´s so awesome and you can see the love that she has for the gospel and for other people! I hope that I get the opportunity to serve in Caça Pava its an awesome area. 

Something really funny happened this week to me and my companion Sister Waite. Last monday after I emailed you we went into downtown Sao Jose dos Campos to have PDAY with Bruna and Adriana. After we finished there we got on the bus to go to our Zone meeting. The bus was really crowded already so I sat down in one of the only empty seats I saw, and while Sister Waite was paying people with Cameras entered the bus in one door and people with drums and big dresses entered the bus on another and started dancing and playing music. It was for a news program here called Janguarda Mix they were filming for Carnaval, because Carnaval started Friday. I didn´t really think much of it, just like WHOA I wonder if this is what Carnaval is, but yesterday at church everyone came up to us saying AH ARTISTAS, FAMOSAS. They saw us on TV!!! haha. Maybe its on Youtube look up Janguarda MIX 2/9/2013.... 

Anyways, everything is good here on this side of the world. Sad that they don´t celebrate Valentine´s Day, but I hope you all have a good one. I LOVE YOU ALL
