Time is flying by!

Hello everyone,
I just have to say this again.... time is going by so fast! I cant believe this transfer is already half over! I guess it goes by fast when your working hard and having fun :) 
Sister Manchego and I are doing so good :) We are seeing SO MANY miracles! we have three new families that were teaching that are so amazing, we love them so much :)
First is Simone and Wellington. Simone was a contact that we spoke to in the street in front of her house. She told us that we could come back anytime. A week later we felt like we should take her up on her offer so we went to visit her and her husband let us right in. He told us that they had been reading the pamphlet of the plan of salvation that we gave them and that they really wanted to visit the church. Simone was washing clothes when we came in but as soon as she saw us she dropped everything and sat and wanted us to explain everything :) so cool! We taught her the restoration and when we asked her how she felt about after we explained about Joseph Smith and the first vision. With tears in her eyes she told us that while we were speaking she felt like she was there in the sacred grove with Joseph Smith seeing God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. The spirit was so strong and she wanted so much to learn more and go to Church. Were so excited to teach her more:)
Next is Marcia. She was a referral from a member. She has two sons and a daughter who were baptised but are less active but she was never baptised like she wanted to be. When we went to visit her she cried and told us that she wanted to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ but just didn't know how. She said that she wanted to teach her children good values to combat the teachings of the world. We told her we could help her with that ;) We were going to have a family home evening with them yesterday. but we ended up having to go home and staying home because of the protests that are going on right now. (don't worry were safe ;)) but were hoping that she went anyway. 
and last is Debora and Vinicius. Debora stopped us in the street a few weeks ago and asked if we were Jehovah's witnesses. (we get that a lot) and we told her that no we were missionaries from the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. and she said REALLY? My Husband was baptised into your church when he was little but he never went back and we said REALLY?? :) ha ha. she told us that she was very curious as to what we believe because she is looking for a religion. She said that her and her son had never been baptised before. So we went back to teach her this week and she is incredible. She told us about her life. She is a very strong and courageous woman let me just say that! and her son Vinicuis is 10 years old but he acts like hes 30. Hes learning english and speaks very well. We invited them to come to church and they invited us to come back and teach them more. 
All in all sister Manchego and I are feeling very blessed for the opportunity to teach these three wonderful families. We kind of had a sad incident with our investigators Luisa and Isadora. They have stopped answering our phone calls and we talked to the couple that gave us their referral to see if they were able to talk to them and they said that Luisa (the mom) probably received some negative information about the church and that shes not interested anymore. They said that Isadora is still interested but were going to have to wait a little bit to see if we can gain their trust back again to see if we can teach her. Other than that our week has been wonderful :) 
We had divisions with two other sets of sisters this week so it was super busy but fun! I had my division with sister Lloyd (shes from Utah :)) and is a new missionary. She is INCREDIBLE! I wish I could go back to the beginning of my mission and be more like her. Well I should probably go. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and thoughts :) I love you all!
