Happy Birthday to Elder Me!!!

Hello All! So this week was full of ups and downs people! I will start with a story that was probably one of the most embarassing things on my mission so far!

So we taught this family right, and they had like 8 people in the house that we taught and it went really really well! We got up to shake hands and say good bye as missionaries do and I was standing behind my companion. As I stepped in to shake the hand of the dad in the house something happened.... I being my big lovable self disapeared through the floor! That is right. I broke through the floor and went knee deep into muck beneith their house! I have never wanted to disapear more in my life!

Right after this we had a lesson with the big family we are teaching. The dad Vilmar said that he wants baptism so bad and he wants us to visit him all day just so they can have our spirit in the house! BUUUTTTT his wife and family came out and told us that they go to another church on Saturdays and they love our church but their hearts are in the other church... This really quite honestly broke my spirits. I really am struggling to see how she could have an answer in a dream that it was true but she doesnt want it..... 

Yesterday we wabbled into their house and I was feeling super bummed about the whole family thing! I went and used their bathroom and when I came out they were all gathered around a cake and table of food for my birthday! They literally blew my mind! They said that I now have a Brazillian family to celebrate my birthday with! They also gave me two pretty sweet ties! I was super happy last night but I cant stop thinking about how they could have an answer to their prayers and not follow it. 

Also our District through me a surpise birthday party with american cake and real american Koolaid! Was amazing! A family tonight is also going to throw me a party haha! I think they like me or something down here! They have a holiday down here that is just for the celebration of redneck people of Brazil... Yup the church threw a party for this and it is by far my new favorite holiday in the world! I also had an investigator tell me that I speak better Portuguese than most of the people here and that I blew his mind that I only have 4 months in brazil! Just gonna throw in my language pride right there haha! Love yall and hope you have wonderful birthday of me!

Elder Party boy!
