Hi friends! More fun times this week in Porto! This week has been all about juggling the 9,000 things we need to do at all times. It has been fun to go from a slow area back to a super busy one because the stress will definitely keep my mind occupied. While wandering around/contacting references … Continue reading Week 68: Sabe o Nome De Seu Bisavô?
Hey friends!!!! I am in Porto again!!! This time I have made the dramatic move to the OTHER side of the road here in Porto 1! So far it has been a blast and I am super happy for the adventures that await! This is my new companion Sister Pinnock! She is in her third … Continue reading Week 67: Porto Outra Vez!!!
Well, if you are wondering about transfers, you aren't the only one! We still don't know anything yet. I do know, however that both Sister Paulson and I are leaving Tomar. President called us yesterday to let us know he's closing our area and we will need to leave it nice for 2 more … Continue reading Week 66: Bye Bye Li’l Sebastian
In this week's episode of "talking is hard" I was trying to point out a cologne ad with Zac Efron and I said Zec Africa. So that has been a great laugh for the last week. We both worked like dogs this week. On Wednesday Sister Paulson got hit with a major cold so … Continue reading Week 65: Zec Africa
Howdy hey! This last week we (finally) went to the castle!!! Our greatest friend here Lia took us up to the castle so Sister Paulson could check it out for the first time! For the first time in the last year we had to speak to strangers in English because everyone inside the castle was … Continue reading Week 64: Castelos e Tal

She's my favorite! This week was also great because of some fun times here in Portugal too! This week we went … Continue reading Week 63: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY (in America)
This week was my favorite week of the mission by a landslide. Flashback to a couple of weeks ago when we had about 3 straight miserable weeks of nothing but rejects. We were about ready to call it quits when we decided to get up, dust off, and try again. We prayed and studied a … Continue reading Week 62: FELIZ DIA DA MÃE (em Portugal)
This week was not incredible or marvelous but we survived so it was a great one! "You can make the pathway bright, Fill the soul with heaven's light, If there's sunshine in your heart; Turning darkness into day, As the shadows fly away, If there's sunshine in your heart today." LDS Hymn, You Can Make … Continue reading Week 61: You Can Make the Pathway Bright
This week I remembered back to my cross country/track days when I was the slowest runner in the whole world (slight exaggeration but not entirely). I worked super hard and gave it my everything and I usually yielded the same results. I remembered the words of my wise mother after one of my races where … Continue reading Week 60: Someone Has to Come in Last
Another week full of fun here in Portugal! This week my most memorable moments were with dogs apparently? At least most of the photos I have are of dogs. I guess too much hasn't changed since I left home. Sister Paulson and I are staying together for the next 7 weeks!! We are sooooo excited … Continue reading Week 59 O Cão
