Oi querida familia,

Tudo bem? This week was great. The time is just flying bye. I can´t believe that there is just two more weeks of this transfer. This transfer has been great. Well here is the rundown on the week:

So Tuesday we had conference. Wow! It was a lot of information. I'm excited for the mission growth that happened, but as the President said, we need to do our part. So we have new rules and stuff. It was stressful with all the new information, but all in all it was a good conference. Then later that night we had a family night. It was so cool because a lot of the recently baptized people were there, less actives, and our investigators. It was really cool. Including us there was about 20 people!! It was amazing. We made pancakes! They love them here in brazil!! Hah We just need maple syrup!!

Then on Sunday a lot happened. I gave a talk on the importance of the members helping in the missionary work. It went good. It was a blessing. Then later we had the baptism of Geovane. It was another great blessing. He's a cool kid. He told us that he wants his friends and sister to be members now. It was really cool because his mother came to the baptism who is not a member. She is way nice but doesn´t want to join the church. It was funny because she wanted Geovane to frequent the Church of Jesus Christ. She loves the missionaries. The baptism went well. We sang again and the two members played the violin and the piano again. It was a great addition. The work is really growing.

Its been really great to work in this area. Its been amazing to see the growth. The ward has really started getting excited about the missionary work. I'm hoping that we can get permission from the city to do a display in the local fair. We want to give out DVDs liahonas and things, and we would sing to attract the people. It would be really cool. We were waiting to get the permission.

This week should be great. Tommorrow night we will do another family night at Madalena and Rafael´s house. It should be great. I'm excited.

I know this is the Lord´s work. That as members we have the responsibility to help everyone. We need to do what is best. We need show the world who we are. I know that we can make a difference. I know that these things are true. The Church of Jesus Christ is on the earth once again. And we are part of it. I know that we are blessed with apostles and prophets-let us never forget this. I know that prayer gives us divine revelation. We must do what is right.

Com Amor,
Elder Fischer
