OI MINHA FAMILIA TUDO BEM TUDO BEM?? haha guys QUE FISHE is this place??? too fishe to handle. thats like how cool in portuguese. im technically not speaking any portuguese, its this thing call portuglish. yeah. me and my comp speak it. why you ask? because i know nada nothing ha but com tempo it will come. just keep up them oracoes por favor (prayers)! prayers wont ever hurt this sister..especially these next few weeks. but like in D&C 6 we need to look to the lord and doubt not, fear not. just gotta keep my eyes on the lord. you can never go wrong with leaning on the lord, ha sometimes i wonder how the lord felt like i would ever be more than a "greenie" out here (valedinha i think) haha but somehow someway i am going to reach these people here in monte sessego. thats the area i´m in. monte sessego, mindelo baby. this is gonna be my home for the next little while guys..and i am MORE THAN OKAY WITH IT:) guys its gorgggg here. g-o-r-g. the view sis yeater and i have off our balcony? yeah. pretty fische. so sick. people would pay gazillions for the view we´ve got.
it wont be easy..ha and it has been nothing but easy because we get the ever so frightening duty of "whitewashing" the area. ha and we have come to know why missionaries arent real big fans of whitewashing...we knew nobody. not a soul. sis yeater knows absolutely no one either because this is her first transfer here as well. so yeah, talk about a rather FRESH start. but i know she and i were called here for a reason. monte sessego needs us. and they dont need just any sisters, they need US:) and quite frankly we need them hahaha fetch these people are the bomb.com! and thats like the biggest understatement. they´re hilarious, and oh my word there isnt a soul here that wouldnt talk to us. even if they´re jewish (definitely arent but just to illustrate my point) catholic, seventh day whatevers, athiests, they are still more than willing to talk with us and invite us in. manners here definitely arent lacking haha. lovelovelove the culture here. good gravy the festas here (parties) dont get started til like the break of dawn ha like super duper late. and they´ve got their hilarious africana/cabo verdean music uh BLARING, dogs barking their faces off, drunkens laughing/yelling at the top of their lungs, yeah. they go hard here. haha its truly a milagre (miracle) i´ve been able to get to sleep at night. if i can here, ha i´ll be sleepin like a ROCK when i get home.
wowzerz. but yeah, being here can definitely be a major confidence booster because they throw "BONITAAAA" or "" ahhh beleza (beauty) at us everywhere we go. legit everywhere. haha i just point at sister yeater everytime ha and let her turn all red (the red is mostly from the sun lol bless her heart she and kenz have got the same skin situation goin on)..we have already been proposed to (surprisingly in english) and they wanted our numbers ha which would´ve been the perfect contact so we could give them our number and have them call us up to learn more about the church buuut, we had a member to meet up with. priorities people, priorities. and dont worry, our hearts are locked:)
love yall com minha coracoa tudo! cant thank you enough for all the love and support. please keep it up haha, sister e has got a long way to go but with the help of the lord, all things are possible!
