Querida família,

The time is flying bye!!! I still can´t believe it. Wow this week went by so fast; the time is literally slipping away. Wow. Here is a picture of our Sunday lunch! This family is so cool. They did churrasco. !!! yum yum yum churrasco is bbq.

This week was crazy. We have been teaching Marcel and preparing him for baptism for this Saturday. I pray that he continues strong to resist the temptations of the world. I know that the Lord will bless him as he does. Its interesting because he has been making the changes in his life so that he can take the step into making the sacred covenant of baptism. I know that the Lord is helping us tremendously. I pray that we can continue to help him as he prepares to become cleansed of sin.

Also this week we found a really cool investigator! His name is Kuan!! He is so cool. He went to church this Sunday with us and is really liking church. I pray that he prepares to so that he can be baptized on the 26th of this month. The work is growing here.

Yesterday it was great because the neighbor of Kuan is a less active returned missionary. This week we have been seeing out of the blue; every time I try to alert his senses to go to church. Well this Sunday we knocked on this door because we went to bring Kuan (his neighbor) to church. He was surprised ha ha he was like …Elders not today ahah and then later that day when we went to teach Kuan and he was leaving his house and I talked to him and he was like ´´you guys again ´´!! He told us he was leaving to do something and after talking he decided not to for he then invited us to come back at 7. We went there and it was great. The spirit was really working him and he said he would come to church with us this coming Sunday. Even though there isn´t someone in his house that could be baptized it was a great experience (for generally you only teach less actives if there is a chance of a baptism). But we were there to help a wounded soul come back to the truth!! It was powerful. He said that he will start reading the Book of Mormon today! It has been almost 6 years that he has read! This is the power of the Holy Ghost. It was a gratifying experience. And who knows he could help us baptize our investigator Kuan who is his neighbor! Were going to baptize and take everyone to church in that building where he lives! ha ha

I know that this is the true work of the Lord. The Lord loves us and I know as we do our part he rewards us immensely with so many blessings. We need to work hard and do our part even when it’s hard. Even when we think its not possible and it doesn’t seem like the light of hope is shining—for the Lord knows all. Trust in him and not the carnal man. We are the servants of the Lord. We must act as such.

I love the gospel. I love the peace that comes to the repented. I love the church of Christ the only true church that offers the tranquility to the wounded soul. This is the missionary work. I know that Christ lives and I pray that I will find the elects that are waiting for me this last week!!

Jesus é O Cristo, e a sua Igreja esta na terra novamente. Quão abençoados somos por sermos membros desta igreja. Eu sei que nós estamos vivendo nos últimos dias e que temos que fazer a nossa parte para que voltemos a viver com Deus. Temos que ser os faróis de luz! Temos que ajudar as pessoas a achegarem-se a Cristo! Espero que vocês tenham uma ótima semana! Daqui a pouco estarei ai! :)

Com Amor,

Elder Fischer
