Biggest cashew tree in the world

This is all one cashew tree!

Oi gentes!

So there isn’t much to report this week. My companion was sick so we were in our appt. for 4 days. I read a ton in the Book of Mormon. I finished through Alma in Portuguese! I don’t know if I told you guys or not about my goal but I have a goal to finish the Book of Mormon in Portuguese when I finish my training. Becuase I wasn’t very good at reading a lot earlier I have to read 17 pages a day to finish on time. I think I’m going to be able to do it though. It’s been awesome to see my improvement as I’ve read.  I can read almost fluently now and actually understand what I’m reading most of the time. I’ve really come to love to BoM more and more as I’ve read it.

Last Monday for P-day we went and visited the largest cashew tree in the world. It was huge!!!! I’m sending pictures! It is all ONE tree!!!

Even though we were in casa for most of the week we were able to still get really close to our goals this week. It’s amazing what you can get done when you put in the effort.

Love you all!
