Wow!
What a great week. We have been working até o pó. Our ward is so fantastic! We had an awesome Domingo this week at Church and had tons of investigators and less actives we have been working with there too. I have never seen that chapel so full in my life. It did my heart so good to sit up there on the stand (I played the piano every week) and see so many happy souls there soaking in the truth. There were so many people there that they ran out of sacrament bread! They had to run out real fast and find some more and rebless it. I personally have never seen that before but it was a pretty great problem to have.:)
We also had our first stake choir practice this Sunday. Sister Brum asked us to participate in the Stake Womens Choir. They are having a big fireside event for the birthday of Relief Society this month and we get to be a part of it! It is super fun to sing in a choir again. I always miss singing in choirs after a long break of not having one. I love to sing!
Debora is getting baptized!!! We have her interview this Thursday and then our planning her baptism for Saturday. Things are going really well and we have become really great friends. She seems to really understand what we teach and is eager to improve her life through Christ.
A lot of great things have happened with Debora and Marisa and her family this week. I wrote most of them below so you can read it in broken Portuguese. Sorry I don´t have much time today--so many people wrote this week I have just been reading up a storm! Thanks so much to all of you dedicated email writers! They are very appreciated!

Love ya,

Olá Presidente Brum,
Esta semana foi uma outra maravilhosa. Nós estamos trabalhando duro e vendo sucesso. A parte melhor do que tudo com certeza foi Domingo. A capela foi cheia! Nunca em minha tempo aqui em Campos Eliseos tenho visto tantas pessoas lá. Tivemos oito pesquisadores na capela (woo!), e os Élderes tinham alguns também. Sou grata que vamos receber uma outra dupla esta semana por que tem muito trabalho fazer aqui! Nós sempre temos pessoas visitar ou contatos contatar. A liderança nesta ala é ótima. Bispo Fabio e o Presidente da Sociedade de Socorro, Irmã Sueli nunca param. Eles sempre querem visitar pessoas e nos ajuda. Eles têm muitas ideias boas para resgatar menos ativos e são muito dispostos trabalhar com nossos pesquisadores. Os outros membros da ala estão ajudando muito com reuniões familiares e fazendo amizade com nossos pesquisadores na Igreja. Eu AMO esta área!
Nós estamos preparando um batismo esta semana para Debora! Ela tem estado preparando-se para batismo toda a vida dela. Ela nunca fumou, nunca tinha enamorados antes de casamento, quer pagar dízimo--todas as coisas que geralmente são difícil para vencer ela já está fazendo certo. Nós amamos ensinar ela porque ela escuta bem e entende bem. Ela tem o desejo melhorar e ser nascida de novo. Ela tem algumas dificuldades com a família dela não dando muito apoia, mas o marido dela aprova e a filha (com seis anos) gosta da Igreja também. Ela vai ter uma entrevista Terça, e se isso vá bem, eu acho que ela vai ser batizada Sábado!
Marisa e as filhas dela estão progredindo bem também. Marisa não foi para a Igreja esta semana porque ela estava passando mal, mas todas suas trés filhas foram, e elas gostaram muito. As Moças foram muito boas e muito simpáticas. Nós também tinham um reunião familiar ontem anoite com Irmão Mateus e Irmã Natali. Foi muito bom especialmente para fazer amizades. Marisa e duas filhas dela foram. Quando fomos a casa dela para levar elas para a reunião, o Presidente das Moças da ala e o marido dela, o Presidente das Moças da Estaca, e uma Moça da ala estava saindo da casa! Nós não sabíamos mas eles fizeram uma visita também. Esta família recebeu muitas visitas da Igreja ontem, e também aceita tudo. Nossa ala é ótima. Marisa e suas filhas ainda tem algumas coisas mudar e coisas aprender, mas eles estão progredindo para com batismo esta transferência também! O Senhor é tão bom. Nós estamos recebendo MUITAS bênçãos de Deus em Campos Eliseos.
Tudo é bom e melhorando também! A vida missionária ainda é difícil mas com certeza vale a pena todos os dias. Sou muito grata por esta oportunidade servir meu Senhor. Isto é a obra Dele, e é uma honra ser uma parte dela.

Obrigada por tudo!
Sister Marchant

Hello President Brum
This week was another wonderful . We're working hard and seeing success. The best part of all was certainly Domingo . The chapel was crowded ! Never in my time here in Campos Eliseos have seen so many people there. We had eight researchers in the chapel ( woo! ) , and Elders had some too. I am grateful that we will receive another double this week that has much work to do here ! We always have people visit or contact contacts . The leadership in this wing is great . Fabio Bishop and the President of the Relief Society , Sister Sue never stop . They always want people to visit and help us. They have many good ideas to rescue less active and are very willing to work with our researchers . The other ward members are helping a lot with family gatherings and making friends with our researchers in the Church . I LOVE this area!
We are preparing a baptism this week to Debora ! She has been preparing for baptism throughout her life . She never smoked , never had lovers before marriage, wants to pay tithing - all things that are usually hard to win she's doing right now . We love to teach her ​​because she listens well and understands well . She has the desire to improve and be born again . She has some difficulties with her family not giving much support , but her husband and adopted daughter ( six years old ) loves the Church as well. She will have a Tuesday interview, and if that goes well , I think she will be christened Saturday !
Marisa and her daughters are also progressing well . Marisa did not go to church this week because she was sick , but all his three daughters were , and they loved . The girls were very good and very friendly. We also had a family gathering yesterday anoite with brother Matthew and sister Natali . It was very good especially for making friends . Marisa and her two daughters were . When we went to her house to take them to the meeting , the ward Young Women president and her husband, Stake Young Women president , ward and a young woman was leaving the house ! We did not know but they made a visit too . This family received many visits from church yesterday, and also accepts everything. Our ward is great . Marisa and her daughters still have some things to change and learn things , but they are progressing toward baptism this transfer too! The Lord is so good . We are receiving many blessings of God in Elysian Fields.
Everything is good and improving too! The missionary life is still difficult but definitely worth every day. I am very grateful for this opportunity to serve my Lord . This is His work , and it is an honor to be a part of it .
