Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Hi Everyone!!
This will probably be a quick and short email. This week seriously has just flown by. Last night as we were planning we were looking back through the past 7 days and we both just feel like we were robbed of some extra time. Did you know that we spend 1/3 of our entire missions sleeping? Can you believe that?! Seriously, what a waste of time. Sister Nogueira and I have decided that we wish we could be vampires..but in a good sense. But really, if we didn't have to sleep we would be so much more effective. We would do all of our office work and planning at night time when everyone else is sleeping, that way we can just spend all day long teaching and testifying. If only that could really happen. 
Some crazy things have happened though this week. We spent most of it with President, Monday and Tuesday we had Zone Leader Reports and then Wednesday we starting Transfer Planning. Crazy to think that that time has already come!
Getting to be with President is a lot of fun, even if we are in meetings all day. He is just so funny :)
We have been able to spend a lot of time out in the lights though since President usually leaves in the evenings. I love Christmas time on Temple Square, it's magical and filled with the Savior. It's also filled with lots and lots of people. This year has actually been slower than last, at least the weeknights are slower, but the weekends are still packed. Which means we mostly see couples and teenagers. For whatever reason, we both love talking to like 14-15 year old kids. They are just hilarious and then of course we invite all of them to start now to prepare for their missions. We've had a lot of really good spiritual conversations with some really good kids. Every once in a while though, you see or meet kids like this:

​hahaha they plugged their phones into the Christmas lights and then stood there for a good long while just texting. Gotta love it!

I know that this church is true! I know it with all of my heart. We were able to teach on of my recent converts this week, he was baptized about a month ago, and we asked him if he had been able to receive a home teaching assignment. He was so happy and excited to tell us - turns out that he goes home teaching twice a week! He absolutely loves it. He even shared with us the message that he had prepared for his next visit. "When thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." He is a perfect example of this, and I have been able to learn the importance of it. I love this gospel and I love my Savior. 
Have a Happy Happy week!
