WOW it's 2016! 2015 went way too fast........
As soon as I walked into this house I realised why they wanted to spend their NYE here and not at our house.. because this house was something out of HOGWARTS, it was HUGE, like the biggest house I've ever seen in my life :O :O and the Irmã and Irmão love missionaries and cooked us the biggest, biggest feast that we ate at 10pm. Then we watched the fireworks from the best view! Ahh I think I shead a tear of happiness at midnight, like so happy and so, so, SOOOO grateful to be here/for my mission/ my family/ my life.
Antonio wasn't baptised yesterday sadly, he had his baptism interview on Saturday and passed and believes it all and has stopped drinking coffee, but I think he got a bit nervous and said he knows it's true but doesn't feel ready to be baptised. But we'll help him this week to reconise that he's SO READY. ;)
Love Sister Bennallack
PS. Transfers are next week ….eeeeek, feeling nervous about this one, I think there will be a change with Sister Ramos and I, but miricles are real right? haha! Stay turned.

missing it already, haha! lol, so dramatic!
So in our mission now, well actually all the missions in the world, there will no longer be transfer meetings with the whole mission, now on Sunday night our District Leader calls us and tells us not only if we are staying or leaving but where and with what companion.

They have been so good to me!
ÓLA FROM RIBERAO PIRES!!!!!!!!!!
-Our ward mission leader is on Holidays
-Our ward doesn’t even have a Bishop at present (he's away in USA trying to move there).
-Our house didn’t have a fridge or microwave for most of this week and was hella dirty when we got here… smelly Elders haha ^.^
-I got asked to give a talk in Sacrament meeting yesterday….20 mins. Oh My Goodness! I’ve never spoken for that long in English! So I was the final speaker on my first Sunday.
(I spoke about missionary work obviously, but…how what a blessing it is that we have had the Gospel shared with us and how we are SO thankful to whoever shared the gospel to us (our parents, a friend, the missionaries) and how when we share the gospel we are giving the best gift we can give. Then I gave a million examples of missionaries in the scriptures and the different ways they shared the gospel, through love, service, obedience, ect ect. We are all different, just the like the prophets of old, so we will all have a unique special way to share the gospel.
