Feliz Dia Das Mães!

I hope everyone had an awesome Mother's Day. I know I did, It was so good to be able to finally skype my family for the first time since I've been on the mission. It was so funny to see that my brothers haven't changed at all and that they are still their goofy selves. I love them. Also It was funny because as I was talking to my family in English it was hard not to say some phrases in Portuguese. Haha FINALLY I am starting to forget English!!! Its actually really funny because now I feel like I think in both Portuguese and in English and it all gets mixed in my head and sometimes I feel like I speak Portlish. It fine.

This week was fabulous. Our ward had a really cool Mothers Day Dinner on Thursday. They put together this really cool slide show with all of the pictures of the moms in the ward, and they got videos from some of the missionaries from this ward giving a shout out to their moms. And it was really neat. Except they asked us the missionaries to sing for them and some how someone decided that I would be singing a solo in English...ugh.. I really don't like singing in front of people, and the last time I sang a solo I was in the first grade and it didn't go so well..But actually I feel like I did pretty good, I sang the first verse of Love is Spoken hear in English, and my Companions sang the second verse in Spanish, and they we joined the other sisters and all sang together in Portuguese, it was pretty cool actually.

We are also continuing to teach Fabio. I love Fabio, we marked a baptismal date with him for the 24th of May. If he gets baptized my life will be made. But its all on the Lords timing so I guess we will see what happens.

I based my personal studies this week on Chapter 4 of Preach My Gospel, recognizing the spirit. Sometimes teaching lessons can be stressful, especially when you don't know the language very well, and your not sure what your companion is going to say or do, but this week my companion and I really focused on being guided by the spirit in our lessons. What A Difference it had made. I know that when we work hard and pray and humble our selves to be guided, the spirit will always testify of the truth of our message. 
I love this gospel, I love this work, I love you!
