Querida família,

Wow. How the time passes. This week flew bye. I still can’t believe there is only 2 more weeks left!
Well this week we have been ´´running behind´´ Portuguese phrase (we have been working really hard). We were blessed to find an awesome investigator. For his name is Marcel. We met him on the street and invited him to come to our English class because he approached us speaking English. It was cool because this past Thursday was a holiday and we went to the church thinking no one would come and there he was. It was awesome. We then taught him after the class and wow, the spirit was so strong. It was like a strong warm wind. It was powerful. We then visited him again on Saturday and we marked a baptismal date for the 19th!! He accepted and said that he wants to change his life. We invited him to go to our stake conference which was held in another area really far away. He said he would go and find it (normally when people say that they will go alone they’re lying ha ha!). We arrived in the church and there was Marcel in the front row! It was great; then the conference- WOW, it was fantastic.

During the conference apostle Elder D. Todd Christopherson spoke through satellite! It was so cool. He speaks really good Portuguese. He said a few words were in Spanish but it was amazing. I loved it, so did Marcel.

I pray that we can continue to help Marcel change his life and he does need to make some changes in his life. But it’s great because we taught the word of wisdom and law of chastity and he accepted. He said he needs to make the change in his life. I pray that as he continues read the book of Mormon and prays he will feel the power of the Spirit that will really make a huge difference in his life. I know that he has already felt its presence.

The mission has been a great experience. Wow. I have really come to know who I am; and better yet, how the gospel can be applied in my life. What a difference it can make and how blessed we are to know the truth. I know that God lives. That His Sons died for us and lives today to guide the living prophet and apostles so that we can become better oriented and taught the truth- the truth that heals the wounded soul. This is the true church! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I wish you all a great week! Never forget the impact of the Savior’s Atonement that makes us become his beloved worthy disciples.

Com Amor,
Elder Fischer
