SO many talks I loved, the Temple was talked about so much, also the Tree of Life, hope, and a million other things. I'm SO excited for you all to watch it this weekend.
So I'm pleased to announce that the adventures of Sister Bennallack and Sister Curtis will continue! Gringas take 3. Hehhe
-We saw this lady trying to cut down her tree, we asked if we could help… next minute Sister Bennallack is in this tree, chopping down all these branches...in a skirt, haha, this was a first.
-At one of our lunch appointments this week, one of my favorite irmãs in the ward gave us chicken that….wasn't really that cooked, but Sister Curtis and I blessed our food with so much faith and ate this chicken because we love this irmã so much. Yolo?
-last week I was talking to people as per usual at the bus
-I went with sister Das Graças to help with some lesson, anyways I NEEDED to pee so badly… but her area has so much forest …… and then she pressured me to just go in the forest, hahahah…I guess I'm still a bogan?

Anyway, we never found that street, and when we looked on our map when we got home IT WAS SO SIMPLE. I don’t know, maybe we are just silly girls who can't read maps or maybe it was a part of a bigger plan ;)
I have the biggest testimony that our convert Angelica was found because we talked to her brother on the street and he told us to teach him but that was the way the Lord worked to meet Angelica! I have no doubt about that.
Isaiah 55:8-9For my thoughts
For the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” not your thoughts, neither your ways my ways, saith the .
We taught him the Restoration and invited him to pray and ask God ect ect and he said he will, but then bore HIS TESTIMONY to us and TOLD us that he wants to be baptised.
We all cried, hahahah, but hes only 17 so there could be a problem with his parents but he seems pretty confident.
We also found this other guy who literally lives in front of the church… like LITERALLY and we gave our first tour of the chapel. It was really cool and then we taught him again in the chapel. Ahh there is always a special spirit when you teach in the church.
aww.. The house of my Father <3
I didn’t really think there where many excited or random stories to tell you.. but now I think about it, there always is with me…
-So Brazilians always have the funniest and random theories about everything, anyway, Sister Curtis has this cut on her arm and the Brazilians Sisters told her that she's only allowed to take COLD showers while it heals, she just looks at me like “ohhh here we go again”. But I’m so evil and told her that it's true, that my mum said this as well and that it’s not just Brazilian, hahahah, so since I said that she’s been talking freezing cold showers all this week. I just laugh so hard whenever she gets out of the shower mahahah. Then I told her like Saturday that I needed to tell her something. And I told her that I've never heard of this theory in my life hahahhah! she says “I KNEW IT…You know what Sister Bennallack? liars go to hell” awww love her. <3
19 April 2016 O Livro De Mormon
How I love the Book of Mormon, I just love how you can have your testimony strengthened or refreshed every time you read this sacred scripture. I had the best experiences about the Book of Mormon this week.. HOPE YOU ARE READYYYYYY ??
ANYWAY, we have people on this street that we had never heard of but we asked a few people where to find the street and it was actually that street we were on. IT WAS TOO EASY. We taught this lady name Elane and it was such a perfect lesson. After the prayer she told us that her brother was recently baptised in this church and GAVE HER A BOOK OF MORMON. SOooo we did what we do best and taught about the Book of Mormon..
I was thinking a lot this week, as usual but especially about the Book of Mormon, and how with these examples we were only let in because of the Book of Mormon.
SOOOOO hehehe, I have a challenge for you family dearest, we have so many books of Mormons in our house…. Write a mini testimony in the cover and give it to a friend or a work member, it doesn’t need to be a novel but just something about how this book is important to you and because you care about them you want to share this happiness. You never know what could happen, probs they will just except with a smile and not really want to heard anything else… but maybe later down the track they with meet the Sister Missionaries in Adelaide and let them in.
We also have a investigator named Mariana who's so close to baptism as well, we are seeing her Wednesday and will invite her to be baptised next Sunday, I'm a lot more confident about her. She's perfect and I love her so much.
I love seeing Sister Gudgeon, but it was so nice when I got back to my area - haha, Home sweet home.
“There can be no failure in the work of the Lord when we do our best. We are but instruments; this is the Lord´s work. This is his church. His Gospel plan. These are his children we are working with. He will not permit us to fail if we do our part. He will magnify us even beyond our own talents and abilities when necessary. This I know.”

|At the Temple, with President & Sister Broadbent|
On Wednesday night President calls me to tell me that he and sister Broadbent are coming to our house the next morning for interviews.. haha, it was so funny how we all just looked at each other and started cleaning like crazyyyyyyy, our house was so perfect. You’d be so proud Mumma B. Interviews were so good, both with Sister Broadbent and President Broadbent. Sister Broadbent literally sat on my bed with me and we just talked about everything! The mission, my family, my plans for the future..was the cutest. Then President asked me a lot of questions, why I’m so happy, how's my relationship with Heavenly Father, asked me my opinions of on a few things in the mission then decided to talk to me for the rest of my interview about marriage. Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwl I got so nervous I could only talk about this in Portuguese with him! hahah but I love President so much, like my Dad on the mission, and I love hearing his wise wisdom.
