Old lady turtle miracle, Exchange, Mother´s day!!!
This week was actually pretty awesome!
Started out with a bang as I got the opportunity to go on an exchange with Elder Lucas which was sweet!! We basically took the day to wreck Asa Norte with our awesomeness and it was a good time. Elder Lucas is one of our Zone Leaders and I also got the chance to learn a lot working with him.
The rest of the week went by pretty normally, until Saturday as we were walking around the entire city visiting those on our schedule. In the midst of most of our appointments falling through we talked with an old lady walking in front of her apartment building with her pet turtle named Estrela. We briefly spoke with her and then invited her to church and left a card with the church's address and meeting hours and our phone number and left. A few hours later we get a phone call from a man that I had never talked to before named Vagner. He asked if he could visit the church on Sunday and that he had received a card with our information on it. We said of course he could and we hung up. Another few hours later the same old lady calls us again telling us that her son will be going to church on Sunday and that she talked to two young men (one of whom had a very complicated name) and that she will probably go to church next week as well. In the end he came to church and really enjoyed it. He promised to come again next week. We are very excited and seeing the miracles in our daily work.
Other than this experience the week ended perfectly with a Skype call to my amazing family giving me the opportunity to wish a happy Mother's Day to the best mom in the world.
Love you all,
