What a week.
My girl Amanda got baptized this week so that was probably the highlight. She´s awesome! And her baby is probably the cutest thing ever (only because my nephew, Nuggie, isn´t officially born yet). She gave me a ring with a donut on it. #birthdaydonut?
Amanda's been through it. She´s gone through lots of hard things and it makes me see how God gives us commandments to protect us. Sometimes they´re annoying or don´t make sense to us, but He´s the supreme creator. He knows us perfectly, and He knows how we need to live to achieve the maximum possible happiness. While reading Jesus The Christ this morning, I found this great quote from a talk given by James E. Talmage regarding pleasure versus happiness:
The commandments help us to achieve long lasting happiness, if we will live them. They´re really cool.
In other news a bat flew into our apartment this week. We caught him and kept him as a pet for like 40 minutes.
Also when rude people don´t want to give us the time of day I´ve got Miley Cyrus in the background reminding me to forget the haters ´cause somebody loves ya. #HeavenlyFather. Who knew Miley sang about doctrine?
I had to give a talk in sacrament meeting yesterday. That was terrifying. Haha. And to think I used to get nervous to speak in public in English. LOL
I think it´s like monsoon season or something because it has been POURING rain. I´m all over this rain. I´m digging it. It's kind of weird trying to walk around in it (have you ever taken a shower in your clothes?) but it keeps things interesting :)
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY! IT´S SO COOL! WOW!
That´s all. I love you!!
Love from Brasil,
