Fam!
Wow, this has been a crazy but wonderful week. Sorry I don´t have much time to write this week--as a Sister Training Leader I spend lots more time writing emails to the President than I did before. But I will have time on Sunday to talk to all of you for lots of time! (40 minutes de novo). I cannot wait for that day to see your beautiful faces again!
Yesterday was my birthday! I am officially 20 now. Yep, feel different. Two members of our ward, Lilian e Karinne, threw me a surprise birthday party! It was supposed to be a FHE at their house, but instead they had a quick little message and just made lots of great snacks (including my favorite homemade pão de queijo) and bought an ice cream cake. It was super sweet of them and super unexpected. We also had two investigators and our recent convert Tiago there (who is a professional photographer so took lots of pictures. And who is getting the Melchisdek Priesthood this month já! I don´t know if I told you yet but he is our new Ward Mission Leader (with only 20 days as being a member) and is SUPER excited to get out and bring more people unto Christ. I have never seen a recent convert so excited to do missionary work. He wanted to serve a mission really bad but is just barely too old. Tiago is the man!). The other three Sisteres in our house planned it for me and were there singing and smiling the whole time. It had been a crazy day with a bunch of surprise meetings but it turned out wonderful in the end. I am so grateful for all of the wonderful people here and their kindness to me. I feel very loved and safe in this place.
We also had an amazing Ward Council this week. We have Ward Conference next Sunday and everyone is really excited to bring tons of people to Church next week. I have never seen a ward so excited in my life. This ward is completely missionary focused in almost every meeting and everyone is ready to go on divisions, have ward family night, or try to find references. We love working with them. With Bispo Fabio at the head, this ward is zooming forward with high goals and actions to follow them up. I cannot get transfered!
I love you all and will talk lots next Sunday! Feliz Dia das Mães Mamãe!
Love lots and lots,
Sister Marchant



Boa tarde Presidente Brum,
Esta semana foi corrida mas muito boa. Nós fizemos duas divisões esta semana. Primeiro foi com Iguatami A, e eu saí com Síster Barros enquanto Síster Hoggan saí com Síster Zapata. Síster Barros é ótima. Ela já sabe muitas coisas muito bem e eu talvez aprendesse mais com ela do que ela aprendeu comigo. Um de seus pontos fortes é com fazer perguntas. Ela faz perguntas muito poderosa e direita, e também tem um testemunho muito forte. Ela esta trabalhando bem com Síster Zapata e elas sempre estão rindo. Elas estão fazendo seu melhor, e nós vimos milagres durante a divisão. Demos um treinamento sobre como prometer bênçãos melhor e dar mais motivação para os pesquisadores agir em a fé delas. Síster Zapata e Síster Barros estão fazendo muito bem.
Também fomos em divisão com Síster Sumsion e Síster Alegria. Síster Alegria está muito doente com pneumonia. Ela não consegue dormir durante a noite então geralmente fica em casa e dorme todo dia, tadinha. Sister Hoggan ficou em casa e estudou muito do Livro de Mórmon para ajudar-se em sua meta para terminar antes do que ela volta para casa, e eu saí com Síster Sumsion para que ela pudesse trabalhar. Ela estava muito feliz para sair e trabalhamos muito arduamente, mesmo que ela tivesse vermes. Nós conversamos muito durante o dia, e ela está feliz e em uma lugar de segurança e paz esta transferência. Ela ama Síster Alegria, e elas estão amigas muito boas. Síster Sumsion é muito forte e quer ser a melhor missionária ela pode. Ela está estudando e descansando de vermes muito, e é obediente e diligente. Eu não conheci ela muito bem antes, mas agora tenho muito respeito para ela e sei que ela vai fazer muitas milagres em os próximos poucos meses que ela tem aqui. Demos um treinamento sobre coisas que Síster Sumsion pode fazer ainda quando está em casa, por exemplo ligando e escrevendo bilhetes para membros.
Síster Hoggan e eu estão muito felizes. Nossa ala é maravilhosa e amamos servindo aqui em Campos Eliseos! A liderança da ala tinha uma reunião ontem, e tudo mundo está MUITO animado sobre a obra missionária. Eu nunca tenho visto uma ala tão animada e disposta para tentar levar amigos da igreja e fortalecer os membros que já estão aqui. Temos muitos bênçãos aqui. Nós não tivemos muito tempo recentemente para trabalhar nossa área, mas estamos tentando usar todo o tempo que temos com sabedoria. Síster Hoggan é maravilhosa e muito simpática para comigo. Sei que posso confiar qualquer coisa com ela, e trabalhamos em união muito bem.
Também foi meu aniversário ontem que foi muito feliz! Vai ser meu único aniversário da missão e foi um para lembrar. Dois membros compraram um bolo como surpresa e cantaram muito bem. Me sinto muito amada e feliz na missão!
Obrigada por tudo,
Sister Marchant

Good afternoon Chairman Brum
This week was running but very good . We made two divisions this week . The first was with Iguatami , and I left with Sister Sister Barros while Hoggan left with Sister Zapata . Sister Barros is great . She already knows many things very well and I might learn more from her than she learned from me . One of its strengths is to ask questions. She is very powerful and right questions and also has a very strong testimony . It is working well with Sister Zapata and they are always laughing . They are doing their best , and we saw miracles during division . We took a training on how best promise blessings and give more motivation for researchers to act on their faith . Sister Sister Zapata and Barros are doing very well .
We also went on a combined Sister Sister Sumsion and Joy . Sister Joy is very ill with pneumonia . She can not sleep at night then usually stays home and sleeps all day, deary . Sister Hoggan stayed home and studied much of the Book of Mormon to help in your goal to finish before she returns home , and I left with Sister Sumsion so she could work . She was very happy to go out and work very hard , even if she had worms . We talked a lot during the day , and she is happy and in a place of safety and peace this transfer . She loves Sister Joy , and they are very good friends . Sister Sumsion is very strong and wants to be the best it can Missionary . She is studying and resting a lot of worms , and is obedient and diligent . I do not know her very well before , but now I have much respect for her and know she will do many miracles in the next few months she has here . Demos training on things that Sister Sumsion can do even when you're at home , for example turning on and writing tickets for members .
Sister Hoggan and I are very happy . Our ward is wonderful and we love serving here in Campos Eliseos ! The leadership of the ward had a meeting yesterday, and everything else is VERY excited about missionary work . I have never seen such a lively and willing to try to take wing church friends and strengthen members that are already here . We have many blessings here . We have not had much time recently to work our area , but we are trying to use all the time we have wisely . Sister Hoggan is wonderful and very friendly to me. I know I can trust anything with it , and work very well in marriage .
It was also my birthday yesterday which was very happy! It will be my only birthday and it was a mission to remember. Two members bought a cake and sang amazing as well . I feel very loved and happy in the mission !
Thanks for everything,
Sister Marchant
