Little does Seixal know what will hit them. You and your unstoppable spirit will change their world.

Transfer day! I´ve been kicked out of Santarém and I´ve been sent to Seixal, on the other side of the river Rio Tejo from Lisbon. I´ll miss Santarém, but they need some new blood up there to help them get people to church. We probably only had one or two people come to church the whole transfer, which is SUPER bad. usually you can at LEAST get one or two people a week but I am not sure what we did wrong but NO one would ever come. Yes people would promise, "I´ll BE THERE." and then not show up and then never want to talk to us again. SO what did our inspired President Fluckiger do? He sent Sister Amazing Church Attendance and Baptisms KROPF there to shake some things up. My only child, (the only Sister i´ve trained), is gonna tear it up in São Domingos with Sister Juilfs!
GUESS WHAT MIRACLE GAHHHH
My kindred spirit, bosom friend, beautiful Nicole Cardoso from The Azores is on a mini mission here in Portugal. And guess who gets to be in a tripla with her and Sister Fuller for the rest of it until she heads out for her real mission in England? THAT WOULD BE ME and i cried tears of joy. First i cried tears of sadness at the mission conference we had last week when i saw her and was sure i would never see her again in this life, then yesterday i found out that i was the blessed soul who gets to serve with here until she heads out. haha. (i was also running on 5 hours of sleep and hormonal, so i cried for only like 15 minutes. nbd)
BUT THE CONFERENCE was amazing. Elder Patrick Kearon from England came and toured our mission. That means he came and held multi-zone conferences on the islands of the Azores, and Madeira and had two more on continental Portugal. HE WAS AMAZING. IS AMAZING. he told me everything i needed to hear. gah. i took really the best notes i could (with my left hand, yes i am still doing that, you thought i stopped didn´t you) but still didn´t even give it justice. He is so so sososososososo inspired. I don´t know how people get to that point. obviously i´m missing out on something vital here. How do i become an amazing conductor of the spirit? Better, how do i STAY completely obedient without going back to old/easier habits? i gotta pray harder.
K well sorry no pictures. but Sister Crossman keeps a blog and even though i won´t be on anymore updates probably i´m in some. there are your pictures.
K LOVE AND PEACE AND BLESSINGS (which come from LIVING the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST just do it.)
