week 56

My family and friends, I swear weeks on the mission just fly by! You´re just so busy you cant keep the track of time! It´s crazy. haha it feels like I just talked to yall yesterday! 

So this is what happened this week, Tuesday we had a good working day and a family invited us to eat with them. So Tuesday night we were able to go to eat with them on a praca. It was pretty cool to eat out in public with members haha 

My comp bought chlorine so we do the baptism example alot. We have water in a cup. The cup represents our body and the water represents our spirits. As we go along with life, we commit sins. And he pours a little juice powder into the cup. So when we commit sins and dont repent, our spirit stays unclean. But throught baptism, and he pours in the cholorine, our sprit becomes clean again! We love doing this during visits becuase most people are just like ´´wait, how´d you do that?´´ haha 

Ohh Wednesday night we had a FHE at a members house, and Elder and Sister Harris from Cuiabá came and supported our branch here! It was pretty cool. I love the Harris´! 

Friday night the branch put on a Just Dance activity! It was actually really awesome. Us missionaries couldnt dance of course but watching other people have a good time made us have a good time. I forgot to bring my camera, so I didnt take pictures :( 

We have a family that we are teaching that consists of Fatima (the mom), Andreira (20, daughter), and Adrenny (16, daughter). They commited this week that if they recieved an answer they´d be baptized. So now we are helping them recognize an answer.We taught them The Book of Mormon Saturday, so if they read we know they´ll recieve an answer! 

Then on Saturday we made a lot of visits and then a Less-Active invited us over for dinner so that was wonderful. 

One funny experience, Thursday night I started a baptismal interview with Raissa, she is adorable. The other elders told me she was 11, but when i started the interview she said she was 8. And her moms a member so in this case, the branch president would do the interview. When she told me she was 8 i was like ahh this will be awkward, but i was like hold on one second.... I went out and talked to the branch president and he said he would finish it. Raissa was baptized Saturday night and we werent able to attend it! I was sad, but im so happy for her!

Ohh yesterday we were walking to church (45 min) and a lady on a wheelchair ´´elders, take me to church!´´ We´ve never seen her before so we were like ok... she started talking to us and she said she was baptized in another state but passed through Cáceres bc she was traveling. A member drove up next to us and brought all of us to the church. At church she stayed with the relief society and the women there helped her. Then she had to leave early and a man with a car from the elders qourum brought her to the bus station. This experience reminded me of the talk in General Conference when we all come together to help other people. It was an awesome experience.

Thats it for this week. I love yall!! have an awesome week!

Com Amor,
Elder Marstella
