"The Bomb"

WEEK 45: July 31, 2017

Well folks, it´s August tomorrow and my mind is officially blown. These past 10 months have been the LONGEST yet FASTEST ten months of my life. Mission time is somethin else man. This week was ight though! 

We were finally able to mark some baptismal dates, and one of them is SOOO cool! His name is Nivaldo. He is a 35 year old man, who is truly looking for the truth in his life. We´ve only taught him 2 lessons so far, but he gladly accepted a baptismal date and wants to continue to learn more and follow Christ. Unfortunately we have had to stay in the house a little seeing as I have a stomach bug, and we weren´t expecting many people to come to church because of it. Long story short, we tried calling and passing by all our pesquisadors before church and the only one who showed up was Nivaldo. He stayed for all 3 hours and even brought his Livro de Mormon (Book of Mormon) with him. It was so awesome! We´ll follow up with him this week and see how he liked it. Keep him in your prayers pls! 

Also, we had a ward baptism this past Saturday and it was so awesome. His name is Yuri, and he´s the cutest thing ever. I def regret not going to ward baptisms before the mission. It´s so important to show support for these little kids and help them realize how awesome it is that they have decided to be baptized. It is a goal of mine to attend ward baptisms when i get home, and I encourage all of you to do the same. Ward missionary work is SO SO important people.

Well, that´s about it for this week. Also, I HAD BLOOD DRAWN AND DIDNT PASS OUT!!!  Yes, miracles do happen. Missions change a person...Especially here in Cabo Verde lol. K have a great week. Love you all!!!! Shoutout to Kade for moving out and starting college. So proud of you (,: Don't forget about me. xoxoxo

Much love, Sister Jorgensen
