Mission and stake conference!

Oi a todos!
So many stories to tell! Life is good in Cidade Jardim, and I cant believe this transfer is halfway over! Wow! I'm loving every moment though. My companion, SIster Lima da Silva, is the best ever (and she's an AMAZING cook, seriously). And SIster Moraes and SIster Robins, the other sisters in our ward, are awesome and super funny. They are both really afraid of spiders though, so I've become the spider slayer. "Siiiiiiisterrrr Knaaaaaapppp! Aranhaaaa!" is rather common these days :) haha
We had mission conference this Friday, which was so great! It was fun to see missionaries from the entire mission and hear such wonderful messages! We also had stake conference tthis weekend, so it was a spiritual feast! Alma 37:38-47 is wonderful, with our liahonas being the Holy Ghost. I also loved the promise in ALma that faith, repentance, good works,and continual prayer bring miracles and revelations and lots of baptisms! Ive been working on having more faith and trust in the Lord and the miracles are just pouring down on us here!! 
Neat story: one of our investigators, Gleyci, told us that she had done like we asked and prayed about the message and the Book of Mormon and that when she prayed she had felt really good and this feeling like a light and a hug. We read Galatians 5:22 about the fruits of the Spirit with her, and it was such a great lesson! Its so incredible to see the gospel change people's lives!
Okay, heres another funny story. So last Sunday we were helping a member fix lunch and we were preparing this meat and we asked what it was and she said "lagarto" but we thought she was kidding. This week, we somehow got on the topic of what we ate last week and Sister Moraes said that what we had thought was pork WAS ACTUALLY lagarto: lizard. So yeah. Lizard (it was a big lizard too) is actually quite delicious. Fun fact. :)
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely pi day and week and that this week is even more wonderful! 
Muito amor,
