So this week was nuts! First off, I can see now that I know the language better than I thought. I started to talk to somebody without even thinking about it. I’m so grateful for this!!! I really saw this week that I grew a lot last transfer. Wow. I could not believe it. Still have more I need to learn! So on Monday when we got back to Matosinhos we actually ran into one of our members Pedro and he gave us like 3 references! It was so awesome! Our members here are incredible and I can’t wait to come home and help the missionaries in our stake/ward!
Sowe got a call from one of our past investigators and she wanted to talk to us! We were supposed to be doing weekly planning but she could only see us during weekly planning. The spirit was soooooo strong during that lesson!!!! Oh my goodness. She would have accept every invite that we gave her but then I thought, `wait, we can’t invite her to do everything right now...baby steps sister hillam, baby steps...`man I just wanted to baptize her right then and there! she’s now a progressing investigator!! It was amazing! The Elders also called us that morning and said that we were going to have a competition to see who could get the most contacts. We tied with 45 each dupla! It was awesome! We also had a family tell us that Sister Elliott is 24 with lots of wisdom and that I’m a little bit less mature...that’s the first time I’ve ever gotten that before...ha-ha
I celebrate 6 months on the mission in 2 days. I can’t believe it. It’s going by so fast. This time next year I’ll be home. I love the mission. Fetch I have no idea what people say but I laugh all the time and the people that do want to listen are so elect. I can’t believe it. It’s just incredible! I love you all soooo much!!!!!
