Oi Família

This week flew bye! I can´t belieive it. Its crazy how fast the time góes. It sounds like everything is going pretty well- other than the economy. Yikes. But all will turn it J There is a great scripture about América in the Book of Mórmon ( 2 Nephi 10:10-20) Its great. O and to anwser your questions mom. Haha WE get 60 mins to use the internet in which we need to; e-mail the president ( in português) check the referall site for 15 mins, and e-mail the family. And we use na internet café. So the computuers do not function the best. I wish i had more time to e-mail each one of you. J O and i recived the missionties letter last p-day it was after i had written you the e-mail. Everything seems to be working with that! Thank you so much )) J But anyways, This week was pretty the same as last week, but there are a couple highlights that I would like to talk about. I forgot to write in my last e-mail that on the way back from our conferencia in Macaé. My companion encouraged me to stand up in front of the bus and bear my testimony about the Livro de Mórmon to everyone on the bus. Haha It was great. AS i bore my testimony my companion and another Elder passed out passalong cards. IT was fun Anyways, back to this week. I want to talk about yesterday. It was great. One of the best days i have had in the feild. My companion went on a split with another missionary and i was teamed up with his Companion. Elder Encinie. He is a brazilian and speaks come english. He is a great missionary and works hard. Yesterday we met up with a member from our ward that had recently returned from his mission early due to his health. He was out for only 3 months! But he said he will return in a couple months. He hád problems with the smog in São Paulo. His name is Jonathan. But anyways, we went teaching with him and we went to a house that his mother is friends with. This family is very special. They let us in and were very nice to us. But, what was interesting was that the mother had a book of Mórmon from a very long time ago. She said she had met with the missionaries before she was married. The spirit was very strong when we taught. And they were so engergetic about praying to know the truth. But, the best part was that after we left. The member Jonathan, said to me that when i was teaching, he said he had a ´´dejavou´´ effect. Which is really interesting becuase it reinforced the idea of how we were preordained before this life to teach people in this life. It amazing. This work is real. That Jesus Christ is our savior, God is our Heavenly Father. And, the best part about it is that the Holy Ghost is able to testify the truth of this and all things, if we pray with real intent and a purê heart. What a great expereience it was. I hope you will all have a great week. I think about you all and pray for you. I love you all so much. Im so blessed to have been raised in América and have grown up in the gospel. We have such a precious gift. We need to remeber to share it. The world hás completlty forgotten their purpose hear on earth. WE need to help them remember.

Com amor,

Elder Fischer
