Each day I find more and more I love about this experience in the mission field. Today was fast and testimony meeting. It is so delightful in this ward. As soon as the time is turned over to the members the front benches fill right up, sometimes it feels like there are more in front than in the audience. The testimonies are awesome usually short but always from the heart. Couples walk up together hand in hand and the cool thing is when the spirit moves them they stand right up and walk to the front- in the middle of a very tender moment, a testimony, or whatever. They sing in every meeting including Sunday School, most often without accompaniment and with great energy. Which at times is so fun. Today the priesthood was singing "O how lovely was the morning" as was the relief society, but each was in a different key and we were a measure behind at the start but we soon caught up and passed them by. We have a divider between the classes but when singing is going on the sound carries so much better. And the joy and smiles are everywhere. Always an abraço or Bom Dia. Every meeting ends with more abraços and a Boa Semana which means have a good week. Actually it is marvelous and energizing. What ever will I do when we have to leave these amazing people?
