Week 39

Hello friends and family! Here in Lucas it has started raining almost everyday... and its not just a little shower, it rains hard here. haha Luckly, we have only been caught in the streets once when it just starts poring, but the members here say it´ll start raining all day, everyday. So thatll be fun. hahah 

This week has been pretty good! We got alot of help from the members this week. 3 nights of the week, members were helping us make our investigators into members! We baptized a kid name Anderson a couple weeks ago. He is 17 and already loves being a member. Sunday we suprised him with a white shirt and tie. Before, he went in jeans and a tshirt, and felt a little off because everyone else whas in a white shirt and tie. So we gave him a white shirt and tie as a present and now he looks like all the other young men! It´s awesome! 

We met a lot of new people this week. One miracle was this: We made a contact with a woman a couple days ago, and Saturday we went to here house. But she wasnt there, so we decided to go door to door on this street. Literally no one was at home. It was around 3 pm so pretty much everyone was working. My comp said, ´´No one´s here. Lets go to another street.´´ But I felt the Spirit tell me to go just a little bit more. We walked for a little bit longer and found Sandra! She said she was suppose to be at work but something happened so she didnt go. Thats one miracle. 2nd miracle, the Lord has definitly prepared her. She use to go to a church, but stopped 4 years ago. She knew she needed God in her life again. We taught her the Restoration and she liked it alot. She couldnt make church yesterday, but she said she´ll go this Sunday. 3rd Miracle: her kids dont like to party and do things like that. Here in brasil that is super hard to do, especially if youre not a member. We have high hopes for her and her family.

We are also teaching another family. Katia (mom), Michael (son 19), and Julie (daughter 18). They went to church last week, but they were traveling yesterday. Yesterday night we visited them with 2 young men. Katia said she prayed and she feels like she has recieved an answer that our church is true! We asked them to ask God if they should be baptized Sunday after General Conference. My area, Lucas do Rio Verde is super blessed. The members here are super excited for missionary work and are willing to help a ton. This was my week! I love it here. I love my mom.

I cant believe next week is my 40th week on the mission. Time is literally flying!  I love yall. and again, I love my mom!

Com Amor,
Elder Marstella
