Blessings on Blessings on Blessings

Week 38: June 12 2017

Very cliche title, but very cliche week? DEF NOT. I dont even know where to begin....for starters, Happy Father´s Day this upcoming Sunday!! I am SO beyond grateful for my Dad and all he has done, and continues to do for me and my family. Make sure to treat all those Dads out there real good this week and make them a steak or something!

As for Terra Branca, things are going really well! We will be having a baptism this week for a young girl named Luciete. She is the niece of our bishop and SO COOL! She is so prepared and I´m so glad we met her. We have a few other investigators who are also preparing for baptism here in the next couple of weeks, and things are looking really good for this area in general. We are finding TONS of new people all the time, and there are still a few parts of this area we have yet to explore. It´s cool being in a new place again.

Crazy of the week: so here in Praia, things are a lot more loud and busy than they were on the island of Santo Antao and other islands, which means that lots more things happen including crimes. (okay dont freak out Cami) Anyways, this past weekend, some stupid teenage boys lit the library on fire in the church. The first time they did it during the baptisms on Saturday, and the second time they tried burning it down was during our SACRAMENT MEETING. We were literally passing around the water, and all of a sudden the bishop from the other ward bursts through the door with a young boy by the neck and says `fogo!` which means fire. So we ended up putting a fire out during sacrament meeting!! That´s definitely not something you hear about every day.

Other than that, not much else has happened this week.  I hope all is well back home and that ya´ll are enjoying your AC´s. frick, it´s so hot here. I love you all so much though and am grateful for the love and support. Always! You guys are the best. LOVE YOU!


Much love, Sister Jorgensen  xoxoxo
