Another wonderful week in Brazil!! (March 10)

Hello, Family!

This week was really great! We taught a lot of lessons! It was awesome! We found an amazing couple, and they're just the cutest things in the world! We're teaching them again of Saturday. I'm so excited!

We had an amazing miracle happen yesterday! We have an investigator, Denusia, who's been taught for 4 months now, and she hasn't been able to go to church because of work. She had already asked for work off on Sundays, but her boss wouldn't allow it. This Saturday, however,  she told her boss that she wasn't going to go to work the next day, and she came to church and loved it. At the end of sacrament meeting, she leaned over to my companion and said, "this whole time, I was just thinking about how much I want to be baptized"! She's so awesome and has such a desire to follow Christ. She has a bit of a complicated situation that will prevent her from being baptized immediately, but when she finally has the opportunity, it will be like the people at the waters of Mormon in Mosiah 18 that clap their hands with joy. Sister Howell was especially excited because she found her and started teaching her. We almost stopped teaching her a few weeks ago, because she couldn't progress anymore without coming to church, but she finally decided that she's ready to really prepare. She is so happy and so excited to be baptized!

I just love Sister Howell to pieces! We're working so well together, and things here are really starting to get going! It's really exciting!

I know that this is where I need to be, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be here and to be a part of this wonderful work!

Love you all! Have a great week!
Sister Pennington
