How did we get in Brazil?

Hello friends and family! ❤️ 

Alright so last week was Labor Day and our district was invited to participate in the Labor Day parade on a Jesus float so we could pass out our cards and pamphlets. Little did we know that it was much of a bigger event than we anticipated. It was seriously like carnival in Brazil. They had crazy costumes and everything. Pretty sure me and sister Deuel were the only two white girls in the entire parade. Our district was able to contact over 1000 people though and we got some amazing memories out of it. 

We've been seeing Jess almost everyday and she's grown so much. We've also been helping her find a job so hopefully we hears back from a few people this week. She's so cute though because she specifically asked for Sunday's off and talks about her baptism all the time. Jess is stronger than our members most of the time, in fact she told us a story about how one of her member friends was saying bad things about the church and she told them they need to shape up and help themselves. She didn't come to church yesterday though because she's been really sick and is going to the doctor today, keep her in your prayers please. We hope she gets better soon. 

This week we've seen our investigators do some amazing things. We found out one of our investigators shared the Book of Mormon on Facebook and has family members and friends that want to learn more about it! Miracles! Another one of our new investigators started reading the Book of Mormon 2 minutes after we finished our lesson and texted us saying how wonderful it is. Holy cow! Beyond blessed. 

Also we had exchanges with the sister training leaders and zone training meeting. Both were good, nothing crazy to report. We get a new ASL elder today and I'm stoked! Then the two new sisters enter the MTC in 4 weeks. Can you tell I'm excited? 

Yesterday I was able to speak in church (which still freaks me out by the way) and it was really special because it was 9/11 yesterday. Being able to serve here in New York City and hearing the people's experiences with it truly helps me understand what truly happened on that day. It's amazing to see that even though it was one of the darkest days our nation has seen we were all brought together in faith and hope. Heavenly fathers plan of salvation is so important to teach to the world, especially because we no that no goodbye is forever. I love this gospel and I love New York. Have a great week everyone! ❤️ love you all :) 

Love, Sister Seay
